Makers need your support!

When COVID-19 hit, it crashed the creative economy, shuttering brick-and-mortar stores, closing in-person markets, and cutting off many artists' primary revenue sources. Designed to help makers survive a time of unforeseen crisis, the Handmade Arcade Virtual Marketplace helps them regain their connection to their community while learning to navigate a new world of e-commerce. By shopping with us this holiday season, you play an essential role in refueling the makers' creativity while helping them get back on their feet.
