Its that time of year again, where I am preparing for the upcoming holiday season which means BEANS! lol Etsy has been a great home for them over the years but recent changes with their wholesale policy, forcing us sellers to join their $99/year wholesale program for ANY wholesale orders....Ummm nope. That doesnt work for me because the little Bean nativity sets are only sold in bulk around the holidays and they do not make enough money to justify paying to join a whole sale program without drastically raising the price per set. SO as we will still offer them on Etsy in individual sets, the website (theholyfrijoles.com) is active and ready to take wholesale orders, however few and far between they may be. We can take paypal and major credit cards there and ship from there too, just the way we have been doing it since 2005!
The Holy Frijoles started out as a fun handmade gift for my father in law, whom is an avid collector of nativity sets and also a man with a great sense of humor. Well he showed everyone and we started getting orders, and those people showed them off and we got more orders! It was quite shockingly viral! Since then we've sold them as high as $20 a set (an ebay auction got crazy bids!) and then on etsy, at craft fairs and now at their own site! So check out www.theholyfrijoles.com and get them before the holiday rush begins!
