Wholesale

Wholesale

We are interested in wholesale accounts for book and gift shops with brick-and-mortar locations.

  • With very few exceptions for established, popular online retailers, we are not interested in pursuing new wholesale accounts with online-only retailers. Brick-and-mortar stores are our focus.
  • If you have a brick-and-mortar store and a retail website, all prices listed on your website, social media promotions, and email blasts MAY NOT be lower than the suggested retail price listed on our website. This includes regular, ongoing price reductions as well as time-limited sales. In-store sales are fine. This is to keep our customers with online stores from undercutting each other.
  • When you place wholesale orders, do not pay at checkout. Instead, we will prepare your order, calculate actual shipping costs, and call you with a total. You may then pay with credit card (over the phone) or check (payment must clear our bank before your shipment goes out).
  • Any concerns about shipments must be reported to us within 24 hours of receipt so we can make it right.
  • We ship at least every Friday via either USPS Priority or UPS (depending on the size of the order). As business increases, we’ll add in additional days.
  • Minimum opening order = $100. Minimum reorder = $50.
  • Sale pricing is not eligible for wholesale accounts.
  • Once you fill out the inquiry form, you will receive a call within 3 business days to get additional information about you and your business. If it sounds like a good match, your user account at our site will be upgraded to wholesale status.
  • Consignment accounts will be considered only for shops within a 250 mile radius of Carrboro, NC.
  • We do not want to oversaturate a market, and take into consideration kind of business, size of city, products carried, and whether or not the account is wholesale or consignment.
    • We will consider multiple businesses in one city with the following considerations in mind:
      • They are at least a mile apart.
      • They have different foci (for example: one is a metaphysical shop and the other is a gift store, or one is a gift store and another is a progressive/feminist shop).
      • They are carrying different parts of our line (for example: one is carrying our single cards and notecard sets and the other is carrying our divination deck and coloring books). If someone in your area has a similar store to yours and is carrying part of our line, we will check your order against other inventories in the area to make sure we avoid overlap.
    • All other things being equal, priority will be given to wholesale (prepaid) over consignment (pay-as-it-sells) accounts in evaluating account applications and ongoing relationships.

If you meet the requirements and agree to these guidelines and  are interested in beginning a wholesale or consignment account with us, please fill out the inquiry form below for more information. Thank you!
