Calling all artists & craftspeople!'
We are looking for local artists and craftsmen /craftswomen to provide creative, interesting hippo themed products for our ecommerce store.
What is Everything Hippo?
A place for fun, interesting, quirky and cool hippo themed merchandise. From shirts and caps to phone cases, jewelry, outdoor and garden products, sports products, accessories, home décor and anything else we think is unique and well made.
Is it just an online store?
The store will be online only while we grow and refine our product selections and build our vendor base. A retail store is coming in 2020!
Who are you selling to?
Our store has three markets.
✓ People who already buy hippo products from Etsy, Amazon, and other online vendors.
✓ The Hutto market. Obviously Hutto is crazy for hippo products to show community pride, school spirit, or just celebrate the joy of Being Hippo!
✓ Visitors who come to Hutto for concerts, sporting events, shopping and dining and want a fun, cool, hip memento of their visit.
How are you building awareness and marketing?
Everything Hippo is rapidly building out our social media markets including Instagram, Facebook, Pinterest, and Twitter. We have a solid social media marketing strategy and a great social media marketing team. Our webstore is being developed by ecommerce experts and will be amazing. We have identified a number of events and festivals and pop up events to showcase our products and build our brand throughout the coming year.
How can I become a vendor to Everything Hippo?
Fill in and submit the form on this page. We will get back with you and arrange a time to talk and understand what you have. We are selective about the merchandise we carry and the vendors we work with. We look for quality and relevant products. We try to do business locally when we can and really want to promote local artists and craftsmen / craftswomen. Our preference is to be an exclusive outlet for the products we carry. If you are already selling your hippo merchandise through other channels, locally or online, then we would take that into consideration before featuring your products in our store.
Do you give back to your community?
The owners of Everything Hippo have been actively supporting their communities, including Hutto, for many years. We will continue to do so. We will regularly run promotions that allow us to donate a portion of our sales back to Hutto ISD, Fire, Police, victims of homelessness and sexual violence, and other deserving community and national partners.
Are there products you won’t carry?
Our store is not the right forum to advocate for or against any social justice issue or political point of view.
