Default Do you sell your handcrafted items in stores?

If so where? How did you get started and find stores that will carry your products?

You would need to contact the owners of small boutique type shops probably. You will also need to determine if you want to sell them on consignment or if you want the store to buy your items at wholesale and let the shop mark them up. Whatever you decide, best of luck to you! Your soaps are very cute!

shops also have sales reps that they are in contact with. If the shop/boutique likes your items, they may also refer your product to one of their sales reps. Who will rep your line. They take a %, but are the middle man and are able to promote your products to numerous shops.

It's not the same as selling at a store per se, but have you considered opening your own etsy shop?
