WHY SHOP HERE?
As you probably know, we've been on other online storefronts for upwards of 5 years now. Our Etsy alone has over 2,000 sales and 500 five-star reviews. We respect the ability of new buyers to purchase from a storefront that has a merit system, so we will continue to host and fill orders as usual. Please keep in mind that when we use a website like Etsy, they charge vendors significant fees. With the current system, we lose nearly 30% of the ticket price on small items like buttons, which could quickly advance to 60% with their new predatory practice of mandatory offsite ad enrollment.
MORE ABOUT US:
BoldEgoist is a partnership between two artists - Sam and Ickah! They're both queer nonbinary folks who live near Detroit, MI.
You'll find that we're very firm in our opinions on certain things - we believe that Black Lives Matter, that trans women are still women, that indigenous folks deserve Land Back, that NFTs are stupid and that fans of Putin or Hitler ought not be welcome in community spaces. If you disagree then you're quite welcome to tab away and have the day you deserve.
Our local organizations for Black Liberation are the Detroit Bail Project and Detroit Will Breathe. When we're able, we like to do charity commissions where we forward the profit to them. :)
A NOTE TO INTERNATIONAL BUYERS:
Hi there! BigCartel doesn't do as well of a job of calculating shipping costs for us as Etsy does, so it may appear that your country is not available to ship to. We're more than happy to ship to you through BigCartel - please contact us with your mailing address and a loose idea of what you'd like to buy, and we'll be more than happy to quote you!
...Having said that, if it's too much trouble to work with, you're more than welcome to place your order through our Etsy shop.
