Quintessential Goods is a small black woman-owned business that creates uniquely designed household items out of resin. Our business has made over 400 sales and has a wide range of products such as ashtrays, coasters, incense holders, keychains, wine bottle stoppers, and much more. We've participated in numerous markets over the past two years, but we need help preparing for our biggest event so far, the 2023 Pinners Conference. Currently, I'm the only person who makes all of our products which normally works fine for our monthly events, but this one is on a much larger scale. This weekend-long conference is expected to have 9,000-11,000 attendees and will be held March 24-25, 2023. Which will require us to make a lot of items within the next three months.
Our current goal is to create triple the normal amount of inventory we have for these events and in order to do so we need to purchase a large quantity of resin, multiple molds, other supplies we use to create our items, and packaging for items sold at the market. To help with this goal I'm also employing my sister and cousin who supported us from the beginning and are willing to help. They will be creating products and will also be attending the conference as part of the Quinessentials' team. With as much time as this is going to take, especially while working full-time jobs, we feel as though they should be properly compensated for their time.
Our goal is to raise $6,000 and this campaign will run until Thursday, March 23, 2022. Thank you so much for believing in us and helping us in our biggest event so far!
