A new food site has just popped up that I wanted to tell you about. It’s called Little Vittles, and it’s a site where you can buy & sell homemade food items! It’s a bit like etsy, but is exclusively for food.
I registered (really easy & free) and started checking out the site. There isn’t a large selection of items available – yet – because it’s so new, but they had a great-looking salsa, a Jalapeno Blueberry Pie (unique, huh?), candy sushi, maple syrup, baked goods, strawberry preserves, and more.
Buyers and sellers sign up for accounts. Sellers post their items, the wholesale price, shipping cost, and other information. LittleVittles adds a little bit more than 50% upcharge on each item (part of that goes to help children in need) and lists it at its retail price. Items must be homemade, packaged well for shipping, and “prepared in a clean, safe environment”.
LittleVittles sets up a store for each seller where they can post as many items as they like. They can link to their store, pin it on Pinterest, etc. They can even participate in the affiliate program, where they earn money for referring new buyers.
Buyers browse the selection, order, & pay by credit card. Sellers then get money added to their account instantly when they ship their product and can transfer money to their bank account at any point. Check out the whole process in the video below.
Once you’ve tried out your delicious goodie, you can rate it, too. As a buyer, I think it’s really helpful to have reviews of items so I can what other people think of it before I commit.
I haven’t bought or sold anything, but it seems to be a pretty easy, straight-forward process. And for us Utahns, guess what? It’s based right here in Salem, Utah! I love the story behind “Operation Little Vittles”. This video brought little tears to my eyes.
If you want to add some of your awesome goodies to the selection or buy something great that someone else has made, go ahead and sign up for Little Vittles and try it out…it’s free!
