Crafter’s Market UK was Co-Founded in Bristol by two independent crafting business owners to introduce a breath of fresh air to the crafting marketplace scene.
Created out of the frustrations of using some of the alternative marketplaces out there, Crafter’s Market UK has been formed with the aim of creating a supportive community of likeminded crafters to help one another grow and succeed.
As crafters ourselves (PotrePots & Quintessence Aromas) we can appreciate and sympathise with the struggles that a craft business can face. Including the gut wrenching lack of profits that are generated once all expenses are taken out. It’s not unusual to find sellers who don’t charge adequately for the time and the skill involved in creating their items in an effort to keep prices low and undercut their competitors.
We strongly believe that the platform in which they choose to sell on should not be a major contributor to the ever growing list of expenses. It’s for this reason we will always try to remain one of the most competitively priced sites around. Always allowing for a risk free opportunity, and never hiding any costs. Crafters should be able to advertise their products without having to risk precious funds upfront – keeping us motivated at advertising your products too.
Community over competition.
