How Does This Work?
Tastes change, children grow, eyes age (and aren't so keen on 18M anymore), and sometimes you're left with a stash of canvases you can't see yourself stitching. If you're ready to reduce your stash and take in some cash, we're here to help! Gather up any stash (canvases, instructional books, threads are all welcome) that you'd like to rehome and ship it to us. When we receive your package, we create an inventory sheet that outlines what was received, the retail price of each item, sale price at 30% off, and what your proceeds will be if it sells at that price. We are currently averaging 3+ weeks for inventory sheet creation from the time your package is received.
We pride ourselves on speed and efficiency. We handle every aspect of selling your stash from start to finish - photographing, measuring, listing, processing payment, packaging, and shipping! Each package is sent through the United States Postal Service, and a tracking number is provided to the buyer. Our packages are truly a treat to open! Our goal is to make receiving a destashed canvas the highlight of someone's day.
We charge a flat 35% commission on the selling price. No listing fees, no processing fees, none of the hassle of Ebay because we don't sell on Ebay. We use this website, and our social media accounts.
We issue payout checks for sold items at the beginning of each month, but can alternately issue payment through PayPal if you prefer (PayPal does charge you a processing fee to receive money). Your check comes directly from Wells Fargo (so that you know what envelope to keep an eye out for!) There is no time limit for your items to sell - they are welcome to stay listed in the Webstore until they do. If you would like to markdown your listings from their original pricing to move them back into the spotlight, email and let us know.
We accept canvases, books, and threads. See list below for exclusions from those items.
