Fresh Start February 18, 2018 14:13

Notice anything different around here?

I've been working non-stop to update our website with a fresh new look for 2018, and add some great new discounts for you.

You should notice that many of our products now have a bulk pricing table that shows the discounts you can receive on your order based on the quantity of items you purchase at once. You can mix and match any items in our shop to get these price breaks! 

I'm adding bulk pricing to just about everything in our store, but the discount will only be active on products that display the bulk pricing table.

That means you could get a pair of pint glasses with different designs, plus a mug and a travel mug to get 10% off everything. 

Wholesale shoppers

You can now get our wholesale pricing right from our regular website listings, instead of going to a special area of our site! You'll need to meet our 24pc minimum to get wholesale pricing, but you can mix and match any items to get there, even stemware (which wasn't available for wholesale until now)! We've removed the Net30 payment option, so you'll need to contact me directly to input your order without paying up front, if you've established Net30 terms already and your account is in good standing.

Buying in bulk, but can't meet our wholesale minimums? That's okay! We now offer 20% off orders of 12 items or more, so you can still get great discounts for your large order, right from our regular shop listings.

Discontinued Designs & Free Customization

So many of our designs have been around since we started this business 12 years ago. In order to freshen up the place, I'm retiring a great number of classic designs, so we can make room for new ones with a focus on nature and animal portraits.

You'll notice lots of items now contain the text "Discontinued Design - While Supplies Last" in their description. We will not be restocking these in our shop, and the listings will disappear when they all sell out. I'll add them into their own collection so they're easier to find.

Instead of putting these items on sale, I'm going to offer something new: free customization! Soon, you'll be able to add a line of text to the opposite side of many of these items for free, which is a savings of $16 per item. Contact me now if you just can't wait for this deal and want to reserve your favorites before they disappear.

On the News with Amazon Prime Now!

This holiday season, we were lucky enough to sell a select few products through Amazon Prime Now across the country. This meant that people could order our handmade products and have them delivered right to their door in just one hour! This was the first time that Amazon Prime Now had included Handmade at Amazon sellers, and I was really excited to offer this to our customers.

To promote this Amazon feature, I was even invited to talk to the local media, here in Portland, Oregon. I was interviewed by KATU, and some of our products make it onto a segment on KOIN. Here are some links:

2017 Year in Review, and the Day That Changed Everything December 15, 2017 14:07 3 Comments

Dearest Badger Friends,

I wanted to take this opportunity to say hello to you, and thank you for following our little company's progress. I used to write a detailed holiday newsletter to our close friends and families summarizing the year, but that tradition has fallen by the wayside while other things take precedence. Since most of my annual news usually relates to Bread and Badger, I thought maybe there would be some folks like you who would be interested in hearing our story too. This year had a lot of personal trials, so if you're into hearing about our personal lives, please read on.

Last year began with a crazy emergency, on New Year's Eve. That day changed our lives forever. My husband and business partner, Sean, had a seizure for the first time in his life, while we were on vacation with some of our closest friends on the Oregon coast. This was both terrifying and shocking, but we were both extremely lucky that our friends were there to support us and help care for our young son during the emergency.

We've both been recovering from this trauma for many months, as well as continuing to run our business and be parents. It's been a lot to juggle, especially since Sean wasn't legally allowed to drive for many months, and is still having to relearn the skill. We've been through depression, PTSD, massive anxiety, and a host of medical side-effects that are finally abating after many medication adjustments. It's like our lives were completely put on hold while we tried to find our new "normal", and we didn't know if we would ever succeed.

Not only were we dealing with this big medical situation, but the politics of the country, and carryover from a previous trauma to our business were really killing my confidence. It's hard to run a business on a good day, but this year has made me rethink every single thing I thought I believed in. 

The good news is that I feel like I've gone through a rebirth in my business. I've been questioning everything I do, and my motivations for doing them. I've questioned our product lines, our designs, our technique, our marketing, branding, colors, slogan, packaging, organization, location, management style, and basically every existential thing I can think of.

What makes me happy?

Why am I doing this?

What do I really want?

How do I get that?

This year has been INTENSE. (And that's putting it extremely mildly. It's more like the universe swallowed me up, half digested me, and then puked me back down to earth in the midst of a forest fire.)

Some more good news is that I feel like I'm finally honing in on what I want to do with my business (after first deciding that I wanted to continue running a business at all). I've finally figured out what questions I even need to ask myself to figure out what I should be doing next. Now, I'm working on answering those questions.

Our business sales are about half what they were last year, which is one of the hardest things I've had to come to grips with, work-wise. I'm still trying to figure out what I could have done differently, and hoping to start some new things right away in 2018. 

What does this mean for our business? Well, it means Bread and Badger can't afford to support our family anymore, since our income is basically zilch for 2017. Sean will have to get a job, and we will apply for food stamps. Christmas is very toned down this year. Our employee won't be getting a much-deserved bonus. We might move back to working from our garage instead of our glorious studio space. But I'm going to be laser-focused on marketing strategy next year and making sure that our products are better than ever!

What does this mean for you, our customer? I'm going to be looking for a lot of feedback while I figure out how to better serve you. I'm all ears if you've got ideas. It also means our product lines might be changing quite a bit from what you've seen in the past. I may try new things that are awesome, or weird to you, or just plain terrible--and I'm going to want to know what you think! I'm going to need your help to spread the word, too. Because I can't do this alone.

I want to keep running this business. It's my love and passion, and I feel like I've come too far to throw in the towel. I love making useful gifts for people. I love making custom art. I love vending at craft fairs. I just have to find a way to get paid while I do these things, and for this year, I've failed at that. Year 13 is going to be quite an adventure, and I can't wait to get started.

Holiday 2017 Shipping Deadlines November 05, 2017 00:00

The holidays are upon us, and our most frequently asked question is "will this get to me by Christmas?" so here are our important dates for Christmas delivery.

We ship nearly every weekday between Thanksgiving and Christmas. Please keep in mind that there are no guarantees that your package will arrive by these dates, as all carriers experience weather delays and unforeseen obstacles at this time of year. We promise to ship your package quickly and securely, but once it leaves our studio, delivery times are out of our hands.

Shipping to the USA

  • Dec. 17th - Fedex Ground (standard shipping for most orders more than 4 items)
  • Dec. 19th - USPS Priority Mail (standard shipping for most orders 4 items or less, or an available upgrade option for some orders)

Overnight Options

  • Contact us immediately with your phone number to pay for these upgrades.
  • Express Mail not overnight, but takes 1-2 days. Costs $37+ 
  • Standard Overnight - via Fedex. Costs $52+

Shipping Internationally

  • These dates are estimates only, as there could be delays going through customs. Please be prepared to pay additional customs/duties fees at your local post office. Unclaimed packages that are returned to us will not have shipping charges refunded.
  • Dec. 10th - most First Class Mail to Canada takes 10 business days, and Priority Mail upgrades to other countries should take 6-10 business days.
  • Dec. 3rd - First Class Mail to most other countries usually take 2-4 weeks to arrive, but the USPS does not guarantee any delivery time for international shipping.

Holiday Charity Event!

It's that time of year again when everyone is hollering about their Black Friday Sales, but I've been thinking hard about this, since I'd really like to have a bigger impact on helping others in a meaningful way. Our family has struggled with financial, medical, and emotional strain this year, and I know there are so many that have it so much harder than us. That's why I'm doing something to give back.

Instead of offering our standard 10% discount the day after Thanksgiving (Nov. 24th), we're going to be donating 10% of our online profits to UNICEF. We're hoping that this contribution will do some good in the world for children who can't help themselves, and promote the idea of giving this season.

Small Business Saturday, Nov. 25th

Our studio will be open to the public on Small Business Saturday from 10am-2pm for our local friends who'd like to browse our full warehouse. We'll give you a choice between taking a discount, or donating to UNICEF with your purchase, plus there will be FREE gifts to take home with your purchase!

Find us at 12003 NE Ainsworth Circle, Suite 109 (on the eastside of the building with Caper's Cafe), Portland, OR.

Shout out from Magpie September 12, 2017 12:07

I just opened my email today and saw that one of our all-time favorite shops, Magpie, in Somerville, MA was interviewed in Scout Somerville magazine! They even mentioned us and our cups, which was really cool to see.

“One of the things I really like about the store is the relationships you have with the artists,” Sakowski affirms. “I’m at the kids’ store most of the time now … but there’s some artists who we’ve been selling for a decade.” He points to the colorful faux-taxidermy by Horrible Adorables, or Shara Porter’s hand-printed wallets, or Bread and Badger’s sandblasted glass mugs. Local artists who move out of town stay in touch; visiting artists make a point to stop by the shop when they roll through town. “You feel like you know these people in a way,” he adds. “It’s just nice.”

Magpie is one of the very first shops we ever sold our wares at, about 11yrs ago, when I was engraving each item by hand with a rotary tool. I'm so happy to see them win awards for Best Gift Shop and Best Kids Shop.

Looking for something a bit rustic for an outdoorsy gift? Our ceramic Camp Mugs are for you, and they come with any of our stock designs etched onto them.

Rustic camp mugs make a great dad gift, especially for outdoorsy men! These extremely thick coffee mugs look like the enamelware mugs that are sold for camping, but these are solid stoneware, so they're great for everyday use at home.

Egg Nog color is available only as a single sample. Some are white inside, and some match the outside color. Look through all color photos to see each option.


Just Released: 7 NEW Designs! November 18, 2016 13:20 1 Comment

We've been busy badgers over here, and are super excited to announce the release of SEVEN new designs for mugs and pint glasses! (Other products will be made with these designs upon request, but may not be online until January).

ARMADILLO

CACTUS

If this saguaro cactus proves popular, I'd love to add more plants and succulents to our designs.

FLOWER 

This chrysanthemum could also be joined next year my other beatiful blossoms if people like them.

OCTOPUS

Technically a reissue of an old design we stopped offering, this is one of the original designs I used to hand engrave onto items with a dental drill.

PANGOLIN

These fascinating ant-eaters are endangered, and deserve to be recognized!

PENGUIN

Seasonally appropriate, since winter is coming! This is also sort of a reissue, since I revamped an old stencil I used to put on shot glasses years ago.

TREE

Another reissue of an old design we stopped offering, but one I always loved. I used to hand engrave onto items with a dental drill, so each tree was different. This time, the trees on pint glasses and travel mugs are taller and narrower than the squat trees on handled mugs. I'd love to do more tree varieties in the future too!


Gourmet Gift Box Sets are here for the holidays! November 18, 2016 12:35

We've spent the past few months getting together some of our favorite edible treats from local purveyors to offer you a duper fun new solution for gifting! We have 3 exclusive gourmet gift box sets, for a limited time: Coffee, Tea, and Hot Cocoa.

Each set comes with your choice of sandblasted mug from our collection, and all are packed in classy white gift boxes, ready to give, or put under the tree with a bow!

Click through to each listing to learn more about the tea, cocoa on a stick, coffee, and caramels that are included.


New Mug Colors! November 16, 2016 10:37

We now have Yellow Gold and Black handled coffee mugs available, which you can request with any of our regular stock designs. We can even customize them for you!

New Pumpkin Spice Mugs are here! October 13, 2016 11:30

New Pumpkin Mugs

Pumpkin Mugs are Here!

We know you love your pumpkin spice lattes, and pumpkin pie, and yes, pumpkin smoothies, so we've made a mug to celebrate this delicious autumn tradition. Made to order on handled mugs, or any of our available products.


Sample Sale! 20% off Unique Items October 13, 2016 11:21

Sample Sale!

20% off Sample Items, while supplies last!

We've collected a lot of sample items over the 10 years we've been in business, and we'd love to offer them to you now at a discount! Some are testers that we may not want to produce in bulk. Others are sample colors or products, or new items that aren't even available yet. Some are blanks, so you get to choose any of our stock designs and we'll etch them for you.

Shop now, because they're going to sell out really fast and many are irreplaceable! Sale ends October 31st, 2016.


New Bowls! October 13, 2016 11:15

New Stoneware Bowls!
Choose your favorite design, and we'll sandblast it onto these stoneware bowls to personalize your kitchen! Choose from 2 bowl shapes, and 5 colors.
black sugar skull bowls
Gray shark bowl
Pea Green stoneware bowls
terracotta orange bowls
turquoise stoneware bowls

Our packaging is why customers buy September 16, 2016 13:46

That's a secret not everyone knows.

Here's a quote from our top-selling retailer, Cathy, from Crafty Wonderland in Portland:

"We love your packaging at our shop! For us it makes the product so much easier to display and stack without having a house of cards disaster with mugs coming tumbling down. Plus we just throw it in a bag and don't have to wrap in tissue when they sell."

Here's a picture of just one of the many areas of Crafty Wonderland that have our items on display:

Store display at Crafty Wonderland 

Before we had sturdy, informative packaging for our products, we faced a lot of challenges selling our cups. Potential customers admired, but didn't buy our items, and they had a lot of questions about durability and washing instructions.

They also didn't think they were getting a good value, because they didn't know anything about how and where it was made, or how long it would last.

Once we developed our unique packaging for pint glasses, handled mugs, and travel mugs, our sales and customer satisfaction rates soared, even with a price increase. Not only did our rate of breakage in transit for these items drop to absolute zero, but customers actually rave about our packaging online now.

Want tips for taking advantage of the sales benefits our packaging has to offer?

Let's address these common retail concerns to help you improve your merchandising:

Shelf space is limited.

  • Height is value, so take advantage of the stackability of our boxes to reach new heights and make more product visible at once. This also gets them closer to light sources so they’re easier to see.
  • Store overstock on a lower shelf than the main display. It's easy to spot the matching boxes, so you don't need to take up as much prime display space by having everything grouped together.

Customers are afraid to pick up breakables.

  • Getting a product into a customer’s hand is halfway to making the sale, and a lot of folks are uncomfortable grabbing and moving around fragile items. People are confident picking up a cardboard box, and are more likely to connect to the product once it’s in their hands, even if they're just checking the bottom for a price.

The “tester” item gross factor

  • Items without packaging scream “damaged”, like maybe it was used and returned, or has already been treated roughly, and shiny ceramics and glassware attract dust and fingerprints like nobody’s business. Keeping the majority of items in their boxes means they will stay cleaner and seem newer.

Invisibility

  • Put unpackaged display glassware in a very bright spot so the etched design is either very well back-lit (like in a window), or in front of something dark and solidly colored. Too much distracting busy-ness behind a clear glass makes the etching basically disappear, and the item will become invisible.
  • Our packaging gives a solid background to our clear pint glasses, so lighting from the front is all they need to have lots of shelf presence.

Pricing seems high.

  • Customers love to hear our story and connect with our brand. They feel good supporting a small business like ours (and yours!) when they know more about us. Make sure customers know our handmade products are not cheaply made overseas by attracting attention to the story on our boxes.
  • You get what you pay for, and these cups will last a lifetime of everyday use, even run through the dishwasher and heated in a microwave. Knowing this often makes the sale! Creating shelf-talkers with our story and product features can really help, along with having salespeople that can point out these things.
  • We give you more for your money. You don’t just get an expensive cup tossed in a shopping bag at checkout--with Bread and Badger, you get a gift ready to give, and it’s easy to wrap! Even when shopping for yourself, it’s satisfying to unbox a new thing for the first time so it feels truly special.

Obviously, every shop is different, and you may have your own merchandising secrets that work perfectly for you. If you have a great tip, let us know so we can share it! If you have a pain point we haven't addressed, let me know and I'll come up with a solution for you.

Portland Little Boxes Event and Quote in the Portland Tribune November 25, 2015 09:54

We're participating in Portland's Little Boxes event this year, to encourage people to shop from small businesses on Black Friday and Small Business Saturday instead of big box stores. You can visit any participating Little Boxes shop to pick up a passport (or use their app for iphone and Android), which will allow you to get 10% off your purchase at the next participating shop you visit, PLUS enter you into their raffle for HUGE prizes (like a trip to Hawaii, gift certificates, and a CSA share!).

Since our studio is located pretty far away from all the popular shopping districts in the city, we were interviewed by the Portland Tribune to find out more about why we chose our location, and what we hoped to experience during Little Boxes:
