Beverly Hills, CA (PRWEB) July 28, 2010
Everyone has heard about the local food, shopping, and arts movements. Localvores, meet Localmade! With the launch of the new http://HandmadeShoppingDirectory.com, a world of local crafts, which one might find only at a Chic fashionista shop, art fair or small store once a year, is now available online every day.
The handmade handcrafted movement is exploding. As the greening of businesses, environmental awareness and caring for our world is finally permeating our nation, a quiet revolution has started sweeping the country: handmade, locally produced, environmentally safe products. But how to make people aware of these great crafts pieces when they are only available locally?
Now the handmade crafts community has its own directory. With the recent backlash against cookie cutter, mass-produced and manufactured products found everywhere; there has been a wonderful shift. A Handmade Art & Crafts Movement has begun, and the HandmadeShoppingDirectory.com is the new "go-to" aggregator for all local crafts and handmade items.
For a single low fee, artisans and crafters everywhere can get their products in the directory, permanently linked to their own site so that they can build awareness on-line. No matter how small their online store, they can see their handmade products featured on http://HandmadeShoppingDirectory.com , and can even create their own store on the site. Inexpensive optional opportunities for advertising allow even higher profiles on the site, leveling the playing field for crafts in a variety of targeted categories.
The site has an open call for crafters of all levels right now, encouraging professionals or even avid amateurs to participate on the Handmade Shopping Directory, which also has an online video crafting contest open to all crafters, artists and artisans. Participants can show their skills, their crafts, and their products, and invite users into their home or office workshop by filming a short video to submit to the contest. Prizes include cash or advertising credits.
Not just a site aggregator, but a targeted directory, HandmadeShoppingDirectory.com focuses only on handmade arts and crafts products. Visitors won't see ads for off-message products or searches that turn up inappropriate results here. Artisans can also make extra money by joining the site's handmade affiliate partners program. Think of the site as a virtual arts and crafts fair, where artisans, crafters, and the people who love buying local and all things creative can come together to exchange ideas and create the perfect local online marketplace... worldwide.
