LocallyCrafted.net -- Online Local Artisans Markets
Earlier this year, I re-wrote the software behind my online farmers market and made it available for other markets to use. My own market in Athens, GA saw a surge in popularity as the stars aligned, and some local crafters approached me. They said that buying locally crafted items was just as important as buying locally grown food, and that physical "booths and tables" craft fairs weren't really all that different from farmers markets, and would they be able to use my software to start an online crafting market for Athens. Where Etsy is a ship anywhere market, this would be all local, order online, come pickup your order in one place sort of thing. So, a couple weeks ago, Athens Locally Crafted opened. They've had a great response, and the system is now in place for other markets to open up in communities everywhere.
