If you're reading this page, you are one of just a handful of unique B.C. artists and crafters who were personally invited to consider joining Raincoast Handmade Creations as our FIRST crafters in each of these categories: textiles, houswares, gifts and accessories, bath and beauty, sculpture, pottery, photography, woodcraft, and more.

On July 1st (Canada Day) we will be opening up vendor subscriptions to the general public. All vendors will be carefully vetted before they are accepted. Our entry-level membership plan will start at $295/year, but with this special offer, if you sign up before B.C. Day (August 1st), you will only pay $150 for your first year!

Below we've outlined the perks and benefits of becoming a Raincoast vendor. If you have any questions, reach out anytime.

Who's the ringleader of this show?

Hi! My name is Julie Melano, and I own a small Langford-based company called Fairwind Creative, specializing in earth-friendly graphic and web design. I'm a member of the Westshore Chamber of Commerce, and I've been a graphic designer since the mid 1990s.

I founded Raincoast Handmade Creations in early 2024, inspired by all the amazing work I've seen B.C. crafters and artisans produce over the years. I saw the need for an all-in-one, B.C. ONLY online marketplace where people around the world can shop for quality handmade products created by the amazing crafters who call this province home. In a world of Amazon, Instacart, and AI, it's incredibly important to support local artists who strive to uphold time honoured traditional craftsmanship by creating decorative and useful handmade products.

Back in my university years, I majored in art, emphasizing photography and graphic design. I learned how to make jewellery along the way, and it's now a big passion (whenever I can fit it in). Here's my growing collection on the website, under the vendor name "JM Jewels".

Bottom line, I want to help make your amazing work shine! I was blown away by the amazing products you're selling, and I'd like to help get more eyes on your work and expose the world to your amazing craftsmanship.

Product Handover

Raincoast Handmade Creations purchases a set of trial products from you, not exceeding a total value of $150. This can be 10 products valued at $15 each, a single product valued at $150, or anything in between. We'll pay you 50% of the current retail price for these items (so $75 total) as a down payment.

Let's talk!

If you'd like to have a Zoom meeting, or to meet at a coffee shop in the greater Victoria area, I would be thrilled to talk about this opportunity more in person. If you decide to come aboard as a Raincoast vendor, I will draw up an agreement that outlines the terms.
