A community of independent artisan businesses where artists and owners can share ideas and customers can shop.
Unlike most other websites, artisans on this site are juried. Therefore, customers will find only quality artisans who create beautiful, unique, and sometimes, unusual products. The other unique feature about shopping on this website is that the customer can choose to locate items of interest either by selecting the desired categories, by the SEARCH box, by artisan shop (if you know the artist), or by marketplace. The Marketplace feature is what stands out with 1000 Markets. All types of markets for all types of interests can be found, thus the name, "1000 Markets" (though they don't have quite that many, yet). It offers the same feeling similar to being in a shopping mall or in a village marketplace - without having to find a parking spot. Markets are by region or city (Vermont, Rocky Mountains, California, Southwest, Chicago, Seattle, etc.), by product (jewelry, photography, ACEOs, food, hats, etc.), or by theme (wedding, bohemian style, Christian, Day of the Dead, ethnic, etc.). This is a nice place to spend the day shopping!
Awesome place to find unique handcrafted items
