Happy Weekend!

I’ve had one of those weeks, I explained why recently, and I’m happy to report that decor8 is back in full swing. Yay! Life is good again thanks to my husband. I cannot believe what he had to do to save my blog (and me) from hundreds of hours of repairs, but he did it through some complicated means that I cannot even begin to explain. When he starts speaking in tongues with tech terms I glaze over and just nod politely, “Uh huh, okay honey, good, nice, thank you”. Not because I don’t care to know the details, I do not UNDERSTAND the details because it sounds all Japanesey to me or something. I know this much, I had 978 links to create today but thanks to him, I had zero.

Now I can relax… (photo from Anthropologie)

This weekend I have lots of fun things planned, tomorrow I’m going to a big outdoor market and a flea market and on Sunday I’ll be with friends and then next week I will take off on Monday as I have a project to complete, but I’ll be back on Tuesday with posts and goodies for the week.

Until we meet again my friends – ’til Tuesday!

Round Up: Online Markets and Galleries

Looking to sell your wares online? Or simply to shop for handmade gifts? After writing about DaWanda today, I thought it would be helpful to pull together some of the current online marketplaces and some online galleries out there aimed at making your life easier when it comes to shopping for high quality handmade. Here are some that come to mind. Please let me know if I’ve left anyone out!

MARKETPLACES

Where products are offered in individual shops and you can purchase them directly from the shop owner via the website.

1. Etsy (USA)

2. DaWanda (Germany)

3. Georgie Love (Australia)

4. 1000 Markets (USA)

5. Leeloo (Australia)

6. NEW! Coriandr (UK)

7. NEW! Folksy (UK)

8. Modamuse (Australia)

9. My eHive (UK & Ireland)

10. Felt (New Zealand)

11. Breslo (Romania)

12. Signerat (Sweden)

13. Fler (Czech Republic)

14. Art Fire (USA)

ONLINE GALLERY SPACES

These websites ‘curate’ stores and link you to the seller. If you want to purchase an item, you will then be directed to an outside website to complete the actual transaction.

1. Trunkt (USA)

2. Indie Fixx Galleria (USA)

3. Poppytalk Handmade (Canada)

4. Modish (USA)

If you know of others that I should add, please comment with the links below. I’ll add them into this post so we can have it to refer to in the future as a complete guide to online markets and galleries online. Weeee! Kiss!
