From Start to Finland - A Tale of Alchemy

Just wanted to share a little light with you guys and maybe some insight if you are not already bidding on alchemy requests. Had such an amazing experience!

I have been checking alchemy regularly just in case someone has a magnet emergency. I bid here and there if I think I have what they are looking for. Yesterday, I bid on a request for small items for a shop's customers. Appreciation gifts and the like.

Long story short... they accepted by bid. They ordered 60 custom magnets with their logo on them BUT .... BUT... that is not even the moral of the tale. That bid has also turned into my first ever wholesale client. She also bought 17... 17!!! sets of my premade magnets to sell in her store in Finland. She was lovely and paid and everything!

I am over the moon!

So... if you are not checking alchemy... DO IT! It is so worth the time to bid.


  1. Good advice! You inspired me to check! Way to go!

  2. Thanks for the insight on Alchemy. I had yet to check it out, but intend on doing so today. It never occured to me the opportunities that may await as far as wholesale.


  3. Yep, you inspired me too! I've never checked alchemy, so now I've got a great reason to check it out.
    Congrats on your first wholesale!!! It's a great milestone for you, and I'm sure there's much more to come. =)
