The Company

Our vision is to change the way people shop by making buying custom easier. We want to be an alternative to big box retailers by creating an online marketplace that connects consumers with local artisans and craftspeople across the country.  Not only does our site allow consumers to find exactly what they are looking to have made, it also allows custom makers of all types to effectively market themselves in an increasingly digital world. 

We are creating a consumer experience where consumers can connect with an artisan maker to co-create something tangible and unique. You won’t see a shopping cart or a checkout tag on our site, but you will meet thousands of makers who are thrilled about the prospect of creating something with you.
