Meet the Vendor: Whiskey, Ink, & Lace
Who are you and what do you do?
Whiskey, Ink, & Lace products are made right in the heart of the beautiful state of Washington by a small team of handcrafters. Our skincare, haircare, and men’s grooming goods are made with all natural, sustainably sourced ingredients. Every single ingredient in our products is thoroughly researched, so that everything added in the products provides added benefits for the user. Our passion is to live naturally, with a bit of an edge… Whiskey is natural, after all, right?
What is your favorite new product for 2016?
Here at the WIL headquarters, we’re obsessed with our new soap line of 2016. We have a bunch of new soaps with creative scents using… interesting ingredients, to say the least. We’ll be releasing them periodically this summer, and you can always check in on us on Instagram or Facebook to see what new things we are releasing!
How far will you be traveling to come to UCU?
We’re right down the road! We just moved our workspace from Capitol Hill to a much larger space in South King County, to better produce more awesomeness right here in the PNW!
What do you love most about craft show vending?
We absolutely love watching our customers’ faces as they smell the products. Our job is to make interesting, good smelling things that enrich your life with natural ingredients, and seeing people light up as they smell and feel what we’ve made is always a joy, because that’s why we do this!
Is this a full-time business for you?
We are full-time! Andi, the founder and head maker works around the clock keeping this ship afloat, and our awesome team of makers, including our Warehouse Manager, Kathryn, and our Cold Products Maker, Camille, work regularly to handcraft the goods our customers love.
Where do you see your business in 3 years?
In 3 years, we’ll be moving out of our current warehouse into a bigger one, because we just see growth and more growth in our future. More space means more products! We continue to expand our product line, while making our current products more awesome, and that requires a lot of space. We hope in 3 years that we’ll be in a bigger space and you’ll be able to find us in more stores near you. And heck, we’ll probably have a storefront of our own within the next 3 years.
