What is Faire?
Faire is an online marketplace that helps retailers find and buy unique wholesale merchandise for their stores.
If you’re a retailer looking for an online platform to order unique and handmade items, Faire might be ideal for you.
“Faire is on a mission to revolutionize the way retailers shop for their stores. We take all the pain out of buying for store owners. Retailers can come to Faire to find unique and exciting products from hundreds of makers all in one place. We have also created the first wholesale marketplace to offer free returns. Our goal is to make every item in your store a bestseller.”
When my sister and I opened our brick and mortar store in 2015 we had NO retail experience and we certainly didn’t know about the buying process.
We took our first trip to AmericasMart in 2017 but prior to that, we did all of our buying online or through local vendors.
We love to support handmade artists so when Etsy Wholesale came along we were ecstatic. But that didn’t last long. Then Faire (formerly known as Indigo Fair) launched and our ability to buy from many makers in one place was available again. YES!
Faire has some perks for your first order:
- Your opening order with each maker is eligible for free returns, up to 60 days from the date of order
- Shipping is free on your very first order with Faire – order from as many makers as you like
- Net 60 payment terms are available for all of your orders
