We are thrilled to share our news with you. After months of working behind the scenes, meeting talented artists across North Carolina, and getting web and operations details hammered out, we’re finally ready to open sales to a select number of the public.
We started The Makery because we think there should be an easier way for people to find and buy the stuff they want, while supporting their local community at the same time. We’re taking the search out of buying handmade, and making it easier than ever to connect with local artisans and craftsmen. And we’re providing a new venue for artists to ‘get their name out there,’ taking away some of the risks and challenges associated with selling their craft.
Launching The Makery means there’s still a lot of work to be done. Over the next few weeks we will be putting our service to the test, making tweaks and improvements, and trying new things. We’re inviting a select number of tastemakers, shoppers, passionate North Carolinians, and handmade lovers to be founding members of our community. If you haven’t already, request your invitation now.
