Support Our Artisans
Our 6 gift ideas for anniversaries, all handcrafted by artists and makers in the Artisans Cooperative, can help you on your way to picking the perfect gift for your soulmate.
We share our best tips and resources for supporting genuine handmade artisans: those millions of creative micro-enterprises who rely on craft for their livelihood: how to filter and search with a critical eye on Etsy, and where to shop Etsy alternative marketplaces and handmade store directories.

Artisans Cooperative is fundraising for basic operating expenses with a unique “mutual-aid” fundraiser. Unlike traditional fundraisers, we are not asking artisans to donate their time and materials. Here’s how it works.
