I have people ask me to wholesale all the time on etsy. I don't mind at all. Hey, I am making money, what you do with the finished product is your business. But you know some people get their panties in a wad over the simplest of things....lol.

I don't think you're wrong at all. I'd be flattered if someone asked me to wholesale lol. I think some people get antsy because there are quite a few buyers on Etsy asking for "wholesale" if they buy 10 items for a party or something. Just make sure you supply your store info, website, etc. so they see that you're looking for a long term wholesale relationship.

Out of order....no...but just remember many etsy shop owners are small business and may not want to do wholesale...if you never hear a response they probably aren't interested. Now you cant sell them on etsy, I find lots of products for my store on etsy because I love handmade

Did you ask over the weekend? Maybe they need more time to answer.
Even if the shop owner is not interested in wholesale, I think they would at least reply to your message and politely tell you this. I am one of those people that answer every convo though.

The more detailed the convo, the more "real" that I feel that the request is and the more likely that I am to reply. When someone sends me a convo that says "Do you wholesale?" and that is it, I am less likely to respond. I try to respond to all my convos but sometimes I get busy and those are the ones that I am less likely to respond to. You are not out of order though, lots of bow makers wholesale on Etsy.
