Handmade Artists Shops Site

Handmade Artists Shops Site

Handmade Artists Shops Site Buy/Sell

Today I am featuring the Handmade Artists Site! A Site strictly designed for Artists to sell their creations. You will find only handmade shops here and they all have truly unique and beautiful pieces in their shops!
You get a big “Bang” for your “Buck” on this Site! You Pay a flat $5.00 per month and there are no selling fees! That’s roughly 16 cents per day to sell your works of art!

The variety of goods you will find here is phenomenal! Below are the categories you will find and they are always adding new ones as needed! The Newest listings appear on the front page which helps the shop owners in spreading the word about their new items!
Handmade Artists Blog

They also offer a wonderful blog and many of the posts are by the members there! So many wonderful topics!
HA recently upgraded their servers to accommodate their growth! You will also find a Forum there where members can keep up to date on events, contests, sales and get to know one another. There is a “Chat” every Thursday night where members can get together too!

Andrew and Kimberly KitchenAndrew and Kimberly Kitchen

Meet Andrew and Kimberly Kitchen… the owners and back bone of Handmade Artists! To put it simply, “We are weekend sculptors of stone and clay, garage rat woodworkers, grandmas and college students addicted to chainmaille and beads and other shiny things, steampunk creators, hobbyist knitters and crocheters, empty nest parents that do watercolors in the now, spare room. We are the reusers, recyclers and upcyclers. Some sell their work, while others are just “learn-a-holics” always looking for that next craft to try.
Handmade Artists’ like these and others have joined together on the Handmade Artists’ Forum and become a small community of people banded together in an effort to support each other and handmade.
Not Only do they manage and take care of there members here. They both work full time and are artists themselves! Andrew and Kimberly have 2 shops: Chainmaille by MBOI and Makin’ the Best of It! In addition to that they own and manage the site It’s Better Handmade and Promote Handmade!
