Now in its second year, Etsy Wholesale’s Open call brings together independent designers and buyers from top retail stores in the US. Members of the wholesale community are invited to apply and post their pitch to Instagram by tagging @EtsyWholesale and #EtsyOpenCall along with one of the participating retailers. Up to 50 selected designers will be given a chance to pitch their line to a panel of retailers at Etsy’s Brooklyn headquarters in August.
What’s on the line is a chance to get huge purchase orders to see your products in stores during the busy holiday season. During the Open Call, the retailers will be looking at samples, giving critiques and suggestions and more importantly, placing their orders for their stores. Participating retailers include big names such as Cooper Hewitt, Paper Source, giggle, Macy’s and Whole Foods.
During the event, HGTV Magazine’s Lifestyle Director Jodi Kahn will award one seller with the “Designer to Watch” title and feature their work on hgtvmagonline.com. Three finalists for the title will be invited to present their products at HGTV Magazine’s 3rd Annual Blogger Block Party in New York City.
