Where do you buy and sell your crafty wares?

In celebration of National Craft Month—which starts tomorrow!—we want to honor some of our  favorite online markets.

Thanks to their services, crafters worldwide have been able to share their creative talents, test the entrepreneurship waters, and even grow their business from part-time passion to full-time labor of love.


There's something for everyone: the originality of Etsy, the customization of Big Cartel, the curated selection at Poppytalk Handmade, the simplicity of Supermarket, and the grassroots feel of Renegade Handmade. Now we want to know:

Which colorway do you prefer?

  • Artfire - can't believe you left that one out! :-)

  • Artfire! So well designed!

  • I buy great items for crafting on Diggerslist. They have great one of a kind vintage items. Some of my favorite DIY projects have come from this site.

  • WeekendKits.com offers a fun selection of Craft Kits & Supplies for beginners and experienced crafters!

  • Etsy's my go-to, but I also shop Supermarket, Renegade + other indie craft shops like Art Star, Reform School + the first online indie craft shop, BuyOlympia.com.

    My own brick + mortar only sells handmade and we have our own bright cheerful Big Cartel shop at http://Domestica.BigCartel.com

  • My favorite Martha inspired craft project is the Ombre dyed cotton scarfs. I love to embelish it after dying,giving it a little extra something.......

  • At this moment I am watching the craft hour show and I am inspired to look up the beautiful paper pom-poms. I think they will be perfect for my 6 year old daughter's birthday party next week. She wants a Tinkerbell theme which I haven't been particularly inspired by... until now. I see visions of purple and green hanging from the ceiling..... Thanks Martha :)
