Apply to Sell at The British Craft House

At The British Craft House we have tried to create a community of artisans and makers from across the United Kingdom where together we can offer hand made products and craft items of great quality. In order to do this we do have to be clear about what sort of makers would be a good fit for our platform as well as being clear about those vendors for whom our platform would not be suitable.

Who can sell on TBCH

  • TBCH is for artisans living in the UK and making their own designs.
  • No vintage.
  • No reselling.
  • Upcycling is permitted but only if the item is significantly altered from the original.
  • No supplies.
  • We aim to be the “go to” site for gift buying, where shoppers can know with confidence that they are buying genuinely handmade, quality items and supporting UK crafters.
We realise that there are different interpretations of what is considered to be ‘handmade’. We ask that there be a handmade element in jewellery designs that specifically has been made by the artisan applying. So if you hand make a focal bead for example you could add to this design with other elements but it has to be handmade by you and not by a 3rd party bead designer. We realise that this is different to other handmade sites and apologise if you are unable to apply due to this criteria.
 
We ask that you price your designs appropriately so as to place proper worth on the design and skill it takes to produce your work. We welcome sellers who are making for a living, or use crafting as a relaxing hobby as long as designs are given their true value.

What Makes Us Different?

We are showcasing the Best of British Crafts – hand picking artisans for their originality and high quality. As an application based site we will not have a plethora of shops selling similar items. We want you to be able to found and to delight shoppers with your products.

We have a Social Media following of over 110K which will enable us to get you seen much further than you would be able to yourself.

Having had my own website and having been a seller on most of the popularly used handmade sites since 2009 I am acutely aware of both the good and the not so good parts of them.  I hope to bring together the best parts that they offer with new and exciting ideas to get your work seen and most importantly sold!

Application Process

We have an application process because we want to keep standards high and be proud for any of our items to be displayed on the front page.
