Brandon, FL (PRWEB) November 2, 2005
Junky Jewelry announced today the official opening of Galleria. Galleria is a Co-Op of independent artists and crafters specializing in unique, handcrafted jewelry and accessories. Geared to the independent artist with little exposure, Galleria is streamlined with modern technology to provide an online marketplace for crafters with little or no Internet selling experience.
Marketing Director Scott Spieler explains, "Galleria lets the artist focus their attention on creativity instead of marketing and advertising while at the same time allows full autonomy to the crafter in regards to design and pricing. Our technology is extremely user friendly and we offer a range of support from pricing to shipping. Our independent crafters don't have worry about hosting fees, advertising or upload charges as we manage the actual day to day operations."
"Our objective in forming Galleria was to restructure the checkout process for the customer and crafter alike. Many web site malls offer handcrafted artists "a selling spot" (so to speak), however, checkout for the consumer is often cumbersome and time consuming." says Operations Manager, JoAnna Gilford.
As most online purchases are impulse driven, an awkward checkout method will often deter a purchase. Complicated procedures, required registration and automatic mailing lists can drive customers away from purchasing at a website. Galleria supports an easy interfaced checkout for the consumer.
About Junky Jewelry:
Junky Jewelry first launched junkyjewelry.com in 2003 with a full range of vintage jewelry. Recently expanded to include fashion and handcrafted jewelry lines as well as unique accessories, the company plans on including vintage clothes and handbags by 2006.
