We'RE CRAFTY FOLKS THAT LOVE HELPING
MAKERS BUILD THEIR BUSINESSES.
Wholesale In a Box is run by Etan and Emily, a husband-and-wife team. We're traveling homebodies with a love for station wagons, the Catskills, cooking, and brainstorming at our kitchen table. We work with two Maker Support pros, Amy and Genevieve. Amy's in the Midwest with a huge garden and too many sticky notes. Genevieve lives in Colombia and has cooler clothes than the rest of us put together.
Wholesale In a Box is a method and a tool that makers, artists and designers use to reach out to brick & mortar stores and grow their wholesale businesses. We started it because we're passionate about the freedom, beauty, and creative industry that craftspeople bring to the world. And we wanted to use our business, marketing, and handmade product experience to help.

MORE ABOUT THE TEAM...
ETAN & EMILY, Co-FOUNDERS
We met in 2010 at a social business incubator called the Unreasonable Institute in Boulder Colorado. All of the projects we have worked on individually and together have had the same goal of providing tools and resources for small businesses to do the work they love, more sustainably. Emily worked for years building Liga Masiva, a global market connecting small-scale farmers with consumers and learned what it takes for artisans to thrive. Over the past 10 years we have worked with natural skincare companies that have gone nationwide, artisan food producers of every kind, and now more than 300 makers, artists and designers around the world.
AMY, MAKER SUPPORT
Rooted in the Midwest, Amy is a marketing and design professional by day and an artist by night (although the days and nights blur together anymore). For the past 20 years, Amy has developed creative strategies and advertising campaigns for small to mid-sized businesses on shoestring budgets. With an ever-watchful eye for the best solution, her goal is to connect clients with the best content and resources for growing their business.
GENEVIEVE, MAKER SUPPORT
Genevieve's experience is diverse, having worked many years in retail, interning with an international fashion magazine in Prague, and working as a stylist for a San Francisco based fashion company. She also has a degree in Apparel Design and Merchandising, and a minor in Marketing from San Francisco State University. Alongside her Maker Support work with Wholesale In a Box, Genevieve runs Rakish Colombia, which offers personalized shopping tours in Medellín, Colombia for people interested in Colombian designed and made products.
