Etsy Wholesale: Local Artists Pave the Way at Nordstrom

Etsy.com handmade and vintage goods

Vanessa

Last September, we gave you a peek into our vision for Etsy Wholesale: a private platform where professional buyers for boutiques and other retailers discover and connect with juried artists, designers, and vintage vendors who offer wholesale. Since then, we’ve been working behind the scenes on the site, doing in-depth research, and meeting with industry experts. In the coming weeks, we’ll be launching our invitation-only beta of Etsy Wholesale, during which we’ll test the site features and make adjustments based on feedback. Soon, our team will be migrating over a selection of Trunkt lifetime members and inviting selected vendors who are experienced in wholesale. We’ll be proceeding carefully to make sure the site works smoothly and that we’ve properly seeded the marketplace with a diverse array of quality finished goods from independent creative businesses around the world.

In addition to working on the nuts and bolts of the site, we’ve also been developing relationships with buyers of all sizes, including many independent boutiques. We’re also talking with some other types of buyers, for example, Erin Fergusson from UncommonGoods, Kathryn Kuntz from ModCloth, and museum store buyers such as Michele Tobin from the Walker Art Center shop.

We’ve also been collaborating with select major retailers who appreciate independent designers and craft. Our “Etsy for west elm” partnership (read more about that collaboration here) debuted the way local Etsy vendors can be brought into a major retail setting — all the while taking care to feature them for their individual talents and stories.

Tanner, buyer for Nordstrom At Home

We’re really excited to announce our next major retail partner, Nordstrom, to sign on to be a buyer on Etsy Wholesale. I’ve been working closely with Tanner Moxcey from Nordstrom’s At Home department to feature selected Etsy vendors in their retail stores. This “Etsy & Nordstrom Present” collaboration is an exciting opportunity for these sellers, and it gives us — and you — a peek into what it takes to do wholesale with a major retailer. At the same time, Nordstrom gets to bring fresh, unique products to their shoppers. It’s a win-win-win!

The long-term goal is for professionals like Tanner (and buyers from retailers of all sizes) to be able to have our Etsy Wholesale platform at their fingertips, for an unmatched variety of unique products, hard to find anywhere else.

How did all this work? For the past few months, Tanner has been my “retail pen pal,” if you will. Tanner is a buyer for Nordstrom; his job is to source new products for their At Home department. We settled on their Seattle location first (where Nordstrom is headquartered) and then Chicago, with our sights on San Francisco or Washington, D.C. next. Tanner and I collaborated on selecting the sellers, as well as outreach, signage and hang-tag branding. (Each artist is credited on the back of the hang-tags.) These vendors made proper wholesale deals with Nordstrom, and went through all the ins and outs of doing a large order with a major retailer. (Long story short: there’s a lot involved!)

Sarah attached the Etsy hang-tags we gave her on each piece of her Nordstrom order.

We’re absolutely thrilled for these artists and excited to broaden the exposure of our Etsy Wholesale vendors! Please check out their Related Items below and in person at Nordstrom!

If you’re a wholesale vendor or a professional buyer for a boutique or other retailer, please sign up to learn more. We’ll notify you when we’re ready to accept applications for Etsy Wholesale. You can also follow us @etsywholesale.

    Thanks for your comments! Let me explain the Etsy branded hang-tags, I should have been clearer about that in the post. This is just for the special partnership we're doing with Nordstrom. We also do similar hang-tags with our partnership with west elm. Each hang-tag has the artist's name, business name and city/state. The signage that you see there is also all about the artist, with their bio and inspiration. For the Etsy Wholesale marketplace, we here at Etsy of course will be just the platform, as you say, where boutiques and other retailers can connect with individual artists' brands. So in those cases, there wouldn't be Etsy hang-tags. The Nordstrom and west elm deals are co-co-co-branding with the three parties all involved. Etsy was very much the facilitator in every step of the process with Nordstrom. Does that make sense?

    Wolf from DantesSpirit says:

    Congrats to the shops who can do the wholesale. I have a Marim Moss Ball in my aquarium, they're quite neat. BUT! Why do the tags have Etsy as the prominant seller instead of the actual creators? It seems to me, the actual creators should be more prominant than the Etsy logo, since they did create the items, and not Etsy. The way the tags are now, while quite nice, makes it look like Etsy created these items, not the actual artists themselves. Maybe something to consider in the future.

    This article actually gave me goosebumps because I see how Etsy is influencing large retailers to take handmade seriously and give artisans a home for their work. Etsy singlehandedly is getting stronger and bigger and vocalises how the world should interpret handmade. As we go more global, we are also supporting local and almost going back to our "community" for goods.

Will etsy also be doing things like showing product at trade/gift shows too? I'll be patient as this comes together...!

    Aja' from mienkintoshfairie says: So will non-Trunk members be able to apply for this wholesale in the future? I hope so. If not then this will only benefit a small amount of sellers on this large market place and the rest of us will have to work our butts of to get our own wholesale accounts the hard way. Aja, our approach is to start off very carefully working out the kinks with some Trunkt lifetime members. Anyone will certainly be open to apply once our application process is live. Though to be up-font about it, not everyone will be accepted.

    Sue from MeekaMayesMarket says:

    Sue from MeekaMayesMarket says: Vintage wholesalers...an interesting concept. Could elaborate more on this segment? How does that work? Is it true vintage or vintage inspired? Sue, there are vintage vendors who are able to sell multiples or sets ("lots") of vintage items at wholesale. Think a set of 25 vintage 1950s cocktail dresses or 50 turn of the century lace linens... How will you pick those vintage sellers? Attending an auction in my area would easily net me the linens, elegant glassware, tablecloths or wholesale lots of primitives. Because I am in a rural ag area, where people have lived for generations in the same house (large), you'd be surprised at the box lots one can acquire. Not to mention what is in my garage....where would these goods be marketed?

    Sue, there are vintage boutiques and other types of retail stores that are looking to source wholesale vintage and bring those products into their stores. Your questions point out that Etsy Wholesale has the opportunity to really provide some educational resources for sellers who are interested in getting into wholesale. Right now our focus is on getting the basics of the site running and seeding the marketplace with those who already have wholesale experience. Down the road we'd like to start building some educational resources too.

    Sue from MeekaMayesMarket says:

    Vanessa, looking at the educational aspect and your comment above, it looks like this is a long range plan for etsy's vintage sellers. After 40 years in business I have provided linens, props, laces, materials for period costumes and other goods for movies, Broadway, interior designers that have been featured in national magazines and sold to celebrities. And, I don't think I am the only vintage seller with this experience. Is this something that will be on the back burner for awhile or will we need to go through the etsy 'education' on wholesaling? I am a bit confused on this approach.

  • ThatOldBlueHouse2

    Lisa S from ThatOldBlueHouse2 says:

    Looking forward to seeing this progress! The potential is great! One issue I have had in selling to retail shops/boutiques is educating the retail buyer about one-of- kind, and/or vintage items. For example, I sell vintage lace jewelry. Shops can purchase a style of necklace, ie: oval, bib, square, which is set at a specific price, size, etc.....but each piece of lace is one-of-a-kind, therefore, slightly different. There is a leap of faith a store has to take in purchasing items they may not be able to see. Although I am able to send pictures to the shops at this point, for their approval, this might be something Etsy takes into consideration for those with one of a kind products.

  • ExclusiefByVera

    Vera Tempelmans Plat from ItsVera says:

    Congratulations Etsy, this is a wonderful venture. Handmade items produced by crafts people and artisans is an integral part of our society. Pricing will be the greatest challenge because handmade creations need to be valued higher than mass produced items. The general public needs to be educated about the creativity and productions methods that go into handmade items. Artisans need to get a grasp on production costs and pricing. Wholesale pricing is usually 50% of retail and there are so many items in Etsy shops that are under priced at retail. More and repeated information needs to be published regularly to remind artisans that it is not just the cost of materials that dictates the price of an item. Artisans must also keep retail pricing consistent: on line, craft shows, retail outlets. Otherwise, It is unfair to the consumer. Artisans and the general public need to value their work and price accordingly. I am looking forward to reading and seeing more about this wonderful addition to the Etsy network.

I sell mostly pure vintage on Etsy but have had a lot of wholesale buyers for our altered ceramics contact us through Etsy as well. What will we need need to show to let Etsy know/prove we are capable of filling wholesale orders? Line sheets and copies of previous buyers invoices? Is there an ETA for the wholesale applications to go live for all Etsyians?

    I have always loved Nordstrom's. They are a chain who truly cares about their customers. I even purchased my gorgeous wedding dress there. How wonderful that their buyers are noticing shops on Etsy. I am feverishly working on my art but would love to have an opportunity in the future. Great forum!!!

    This is indeed very exciting bringing local Etsy vendors into a major retail setting all the while taking care to feature them for their individual talents and stories. I feel it is a great idea and it will grow. Crafters go to craft fair to see what people are making and perhaps purchase something special as a gift. What a great idea to have someone's special creations shown in a home store setting. I would love to do this but I have trouble setting the correct price for my items so I would need help on setting the price for wholesale. I love this idea - going to a store to see handmade goods! Fantastic!

    Will this apply to jewelry items? I have invented a unique magnetic interchangeable jewelry product (patent-pending) that can be used with an endless variety of images, pictures of maps, hobbies, pictures, etc. I sell wholesale as a large portion of my business and can customize pictures, designs, etc. This would be ideal for my business. Any idea when this will be up and running and how do we get in front of buyers?

    We have been patiently waiting for the chance to join etsy wholesale. We have been using other wholesale sites for years and years and they just aren't up to par. Upon hearing last year about etsy purchasing trunkt (when we were trying to join trunkt) we were so thrilled, but now that it's taken so long, we may have to join a different wholesale site. I know you have stated that you can not give a time you are starting, but could you give us an even better clue of when we might be able to join? A week, months? End of the year? I'm worried we are going to invest time and money into another wholesale site for a 6 mo contract, just to see you have finally opened the next day. We have been wholesaling for over a decade and have been awaiting a good wholesale site for handmade goods like ours, please, please give us a better status update! We want to sell with etsy, but we need to know if it's even possible. Thanks!
