We would love to have you become part of the Pixie Family! Our requirements are simple! Here is everything you need to know and at the end if you are still wanting to be part of this journey, feel free to complete the application and we will contact you within 24-48 hours!
At Pixie Dust we love nothing more than working with small shop owners, getting to know them and their business, after all we are just like you. Most small shop owners all have the same questions on their minds and so I thought I would try and answer each of them Of course we welcome any question or comment.
What is your minimum order? The minimum required for the first order is $300, after that there are no minimums on re-orders. Order what you need to replace what you sold!
How much are your shipping costs? We know the feeling of when you want to order something and the shipping is more than the product! Uggg! So here at Pixie we try and keep it super simple! Our products are heavy and require special handling. We use USPS Flat Rate boxes to keep costs down. Orders under $200 will be charged $12.95 for shipping, all orders above $200 will be free shipping. This allows you to get more product for your money and higher margins.
What is the retailer discount on wholesale purchases? We try and keep our prices as low as possible. Our products are sold in lots of 6 or 12, and are typically around 45-50% off retail pricing.
What if I offer other paint lines in my shop? The more the merrier! We personally are users of many products and feel that choices are important. There will always be a need for a DIY product like Pixie Dust and there is also a need for a paint enhancement product like Southern Blenders offers. We feel it’s important to cater to your end user and most likely you are going to get the customer who likes both types of products!
Can I sell Pixie Dust Products Online? We have several online retailers now and currently we have a waiting list. We feel that it’s important to keep pricing consistent and we have a vested interest in growing your store front, not your web front. Our online retailers typically have $1500-2500 worth of inventory to ship out at any given moment and they are required to carry the entire line of our products. Our web retailers have the web traffic to accommodate the inventory levels as the have invested a great deal of time, money and energy into their stores. Our web retailers are also teaching their audience via FB groups/pages and workshops how to use all their products.
I'm interested in selling Southern Blenders Paint? Sorry at this time we are not accepting any retailers for that line.
What if someone else wants to sell in my area? If we have an inquiry in an area near you, we will consult with you first. Our general rule is that we would like to space out our Retailers at least 30 miles. However, we realize that is some large areas there will be exceptions to the rule, but we will always try to consult with you first. Also keep in mind that if you are not a Retailers of our entire line of products, we can’t guarantee exclusivity in your area.
When you release new products, are we required to buy in? No! Our business is ever changing and we are constantly working on new products for our end consumer. When a new product is released our retailers will be offered the product at a reduced wholesale rate. We don’t require our retailers to do anything they don’t want to. It’s your business.
I just have booth space and not my own shop can I still carry your products? Many years ago, during an annual trip to Helen, Georgia I stumbled upon a lovely little antique mall and inside I was drawn to a young lady who was selling a well-recognized brand we all know today. If it wasn’t for that little booth on the 2nd floor I would not be doing what I do today. So, the answer is YES you can carry our products, you don’t have to have a standalone store. If you feel like you have the market and demographics we don’t care where you sell it! If you have any questions that have not been addressed….email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Do you have any other restrictions or things I should know? We try and make doing business with us easy, HOWEVER we have found the need to have a few guidelines in place in order to make it fair to so many others who have invested their time and money into our business.
*CLASSES: We highly suggest that you have the ability to teach people how to use the products. Workshops, classes and live videos are a create way to do that. Remember people don't know that they need something until they see it in action. For example, I'm pretty sure that nobody would buy a "snuggie" blanket without some strange middle of the night infomercial during the dead cold of the winter months when your furnace is broken! The point is they need to know how it works and you have to get them at a time when they need it most.
*PRICING: We ask all our retailers to keep their pricing constant and stick to the guidelines that we provide. We also ask that you limit sales, etc. ESPECIALLY if you are an approved web retailer. Your online sales effect our mom & pop shops.
