After a long wait, as I write this, someone is putting their products on the website to sell. I am so excited.
The idea of The Dorset Shop has always been to look at ways to make it easy for artisan makers to sell their wares and for punters like me to be able to find them. We have created the members pages that tell the story of their work, we have created the map so members can be found, the events pages so customers can go to the markets, galleries, shows and festivals. Now we are enabling members to sell through the site. Some artisan members have sites of their own and you can link through to buy direct, some wanted to sell online with other makers and that’s what we have created.
This is so exciting. We will start with a couple of products and the Shop page will open this month!
That should help with Christmas shopping!
November has started to turn cold and the Christmas fetes, fairs, and markets have started. Make this year the year you explore local artisan work for your gifts and festive meals. Have the fun is meeting the people who made the things you buy.
