HOW THIS SHOP BORN?
As a couple, we enjoy short trips and long road tours a lot. During such travel, we collect a lot of art and crafts. My such handpicked are much appreciated by friends and relatives.
A few years back, I noticed that handicrafts, vintage and antiques sold at a higher rate in the online market. That does not mean that artisans are getting paid more. The price is higher because of branding, online selling commissions, expensive product photo shoots, online marketing, hiring for each and every aspects of managing an online store and so on.
And these make non-affordable to many collectors and home decor enthusiast like me. I come from a middle-class family. And there is a mindset that these art and crafts are only for rich upper-class! I wanted to break this. Art and crafts should be made affordable to all! Every decor lover should have access to these. That's why this simple idea of selling my handpicked decor at an affordable price took a form of this online store. As I am technically capable of creating and handling, I am not hiring people. This does not mean that I am against entrepreneurship. I might jump into forming a small company in future. Not, for now, am sure. Happy with doing business with fewer people with limited stocks.
I search for uncommon products which are not easily accessible to everyone. I make new contacts wherever I travel. Few of such handpicked collectables, I keep for myself and many I sell at this online store.
With that, I always wanted to give a marketplace for unique women crafts. Selling on online platforms requires more time and technical knowledge. Until now I have showcased Seven friend's work. You can check SHOWCASE to find out them. From simple logo design (except clutchcraft), product photoshoot, item listing to shipping, social marketing and so on.. All of these done by me for free with mission growing together!
Now, most of my friends have started their own FB stores and online stores, I need to remove those sections from my site. I might reintroduce their products occasionally. Happy for them. If you have a unique handmade product, feel free to connect me. I love to help you. May be about setting up an online store, FB, Instagram pages, shipping and payment modes.
