A UK Alternative To Etsy in 2024


Etsy has been a go-to for crafters and designers, but as the leading marketplace, it’s shifted towards mass-produced items, losing its community charm along the way. That’s where Crafter’s Market UK enters, a vibrant UK alternative to Etsy 👋.

Something’s been missing, right? That community vibe, that local touch—akin to what made Etsy special initially. We’ve stepped in to revive that spirit.

What sets Crafter’s Market apart in 2024?

  • No upfront costs: Set up completely for free and only pay commission if you sell an item.
  • People Over Profit: We’re a small team that values craftsmanship, not shareholder returns.
  • Mighty & Unique: Small but fiercely dedicated to promoting originality.
  • Local Roots: Based in Bristol, UK, and crafters ourselves.
  • Community-Driven: More than a platform, we’re a close-knit community celebrating creativity.
  • No Mass Imports: Say no cheap imports that take away creativity and hard work.
  • Fair Fees: We charge commission only on your sold products. No sale? No fee.
  • Dedicated Support: Quick, friendly and personable – no automation here!
  • Tree Planting: Every order on Crafter’s Market UK funds a tree with Ecologi.

Our running costs and primarily covered by plus subscriptions and advert credit revenue.

A risk free opportunity

We strongly believe that the platform in which they choose to sell on should not be a major contributor to the ever growing list of expenses. It’s for this reason we will always try to remain one of the most competitively priced sites around. Always allowing for a risk free opportunity, and never hiding any costs.
