Why Sell Wholesale?

Wholesale is a means of selling your crafts in bulk, reducing marketing and sales time. Your time is spent creating art, while stores do the work of selling your product. Experienced salespeople represent your craft and your Alaskan story, bringing your product and your passion to people you have never met.

This sustainable relationship enables you to earn a living making art with less effort and fewer business interactions.
