How do I get my products in your store? Thank you so much for loving us enough that you'd like to join our magical team of makers! As of Summer 2022, we are not accepting any new makers that are not currently on Faire/Abound/Bulletin Wholesale websites. This helps us as a tiny store manage our cash flow. We have a handful of BIPOC makers that we are reserving our "pay upfront" buying budget for, thank you for understanding. Here's what we're looking for: 1) We require all our makers to be doing active anti-racism work. 2) We only carry vegan, gluten-free, & ethically sourced/made items & we have a preference towards plastic & palm oil free items. Still here? Not scared off? Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org & we'll get back to you if we're interested.
Are you hiring? Thank you so much for loving us enough to want to work with us! We are a teeny-tiny company that doesn't have the budget for payroll yet. No really, Michael & Brianna have both been working for free this whole time. We currently have two 1099 Independent Contractors that we pay for projects & special events. As of Summer 2022, all "contractors" make $16/hr & receive a 20% employee discount, but we cannot currently support full-time hours or afford healthcare for our team. Once we have the sales to support a team, we will post job opportunities online & on Instagram.
How zero waste are you? The store hardly makes any trash & we are committed to decreasing the store's trash output as we have the budget to. Currently the store's trash consists mainly of label backings & tape we've peeled off of boxes that we've received.
But how zero waste are you? As a couple, we are currently making more trash than usual. We're extremely low on time and lacking access to a conventional kitchen at home, so we rely heavily on dining out. When we had more time and a kitchen in 2016-2017, we made less than one grocery bag of trash every three months between us and our cat. Hopefully after we move to Reno in Fall 2022, we can get back into our low waste routine.
Are you really witches? Yes, Brianna is a witch & Michael prefers the term brujo.
Are you a coven? We use #CoyoteCoven on social media to refer to our community collectively, but we are not technically a coven because we're not fans of hierarchies.
