Maker / Seller Info Page

I want to be as open as possible about how we run things for anyone curious or wanting to sell in the shop.  So here are all the details.  If you want to stock something in the shop, do a trunk show, destash or run a class - details should be below.  If you have any additional questions, please let me know.  I will try to keep this page as up to date as possible.

 

DESTASH Books or Yarn - If you want to destash through the shop, your yarn will be listed on the website under de-stash and will be in the store destash or used books area. 

We will begin selling at your requested pricing.  If it has not sold after 3 months, the price will be reduced.  If it still has not sold another 3 months after that, we will contact you.  If you want to pick it back up, you will have 2 weeks to do so.  If the item is not picked back up at the end of that time, we will donate the item locally.  If the item sells, Rebel Purl will keep 30% of the sale price and you will receive 70%.  Payments will be made via PayPal once per month. 

To begin, since we have such a small area and this is pretty new, we will only be accepting indie yarn or fancy destash and any books should be gently used and in very good shape. The book area is also limited, so only gently used books in very good condition can be accepted.

**If you would like to destash other items, feel free to make a flyer to post on the community board, bring it in to a destash night, or drop by a craft night and see if anyone would like to buy, take or trade. Any of this type of destash does not go through the shop and is purely up to you.

 

SELL IN THE SHOP - If you are a local maker and would like to sell your crafting related items in the shop, please reach out or drop by the shop with a sample. 

Your items will only be sold in the brick and mortar shop, not on line.  However there will be a link on the website to whatever site you sell on so people can purchase directly from you online.  And we will post pictures of your store stock on Instagram and Facebook, sometimes even TikTok videos.  Rebel Purl will collect sales tax on these items and keep 30% of the sale price.  You will get 70% of the sale price.  Payments will be made monthly and can either be via PayPal or as a check mailed or picked up at the store.

***1/2023 - We are working on adding an option for makers items to sell in our online shop.   This is purely optional for you.  Only those who want to be listed on our site as well as in the shore will go online.  Everyone will continue to have links directly to your online shop if you have one.  Sales will work the same, Rebel Purl retains 30% and pays sales tax on items sold and will of course handle shipping from our stock. For now, this will only be on easily shipped items, nothing breakable or large.  

 

TRUNK SHOW - If you are a local area artist or maker and would like to do a trunk show in the store, please reach out or drop by the shop with pictures or a sample of your work.  These items do not need to be fiber craft related, just cool local area art. 

Once scheduled, we can set you up in store or out front depending on your preference and the weather.  Rebel Purl will create a Facebook event and advertise for the event along with you.  Before the event, we require a list of items for sale and pricing to enter into the computer.  Then we can make sales while you chat with customers about your work.  Same as above, Rebel Purl will keep 30% or sales, you will get 70%.  We can either PayPal next day or write you a check before you leave after the event.

 

TEACH A CLASS - If you have a crafty expertise or passion you would like to share, please reach out about teaching a class.  We love learning new things and making space for everyone to do so. 

Reach out about scheduling - our easiest day to schedule are Saturdays but make sure the one you want does not already have something booked by checking the events/calendar page. 

To teach in the shop:

  • Suggest a class and day
  • Let us know your experience level and what you want to share
  • Let us know the cost for your class - this should include any materials you provide, payment for your time, and a small payment to the shop - or you can give your costs total and let us know to add to that a small payment for the shop.  

Once we confirm we want to schedule the class, we will need:

  • An image to use (this could be a logo, a picture of you or an image of the item from the class)
  • Length of class and preferred start times
  • Details of what you will be teaching
  • What items are included to students
  • Any requirements for students to bring on their own or that the shop can provide. 

We will make a FB event and sell spots in the class online and in store. If you sell in the shop, we can add class payments to your monthly payout.  If this class is your only offering in the store at the moment, we can either PayPal payment to you the following weekday or write you a check before you leave the shop.

 

ASK AN EXPERT - If you would like to share your crafty expertise in a different way, reach out about being an Expert in the shop. 

Experts are paid $60 to be available for questions and assisting in the shop once a month for 2 hours and we will set up a tip jar for you if you want while you are on the clock.  Experts are changed each event as you are available or you could just try it once and see if you enjoy the spot. You are in control of the topics you want to expert in, and you can determine how specific or general you want your focus to be.  We are only scheduling one expert per month, typically the last weekend of the month.  Reach our of you are interested or have any questions.
