South Africa is known for it’s beautiful landscapes, ocean views, cultures and traditions, but we are also a talented and gifted nation too. We are known for our love of crafts and handmade products that are made from the heart and represent what our country is about. But what do you do or where do you go to if you want to sell or buy these precious goods?
To answer the above questions I would like to introduce you to HanDMadE or HDME.
The concept of HDME came together when co-founders and owners Neil Mackay and Tiffany Sosa were struggling to find the craft supplies they needed online. It was a constant mission to find what they were looking for or even to just get more information. This sparked the idea to start an online store where people could buy and sell handmade items. This is how HDME was born.
HanDMadE or HDME is an online platform that is dedicated to building a community of buyers and sellers of handmade goods and craft supplies. In this day and age where technology is constantly advancing at a fast rate and we are all working on our phones and tablets this is a plus.
The website is user friendly and easy to access from any mobile device. There are different categories for different designs and creations. Anything from artwork to clothing & accessories to craft supplies, you will find all this and more on the HDME website.
HDME also rotates featured sellers on their website. By doing this the seller gets more exposure and future buyers get to know a bit more about the origin of the product they are buying.
How do I go about selling my products on HDME’s website?
You simply log on to the HDME website and click on Sell on HDME. Here you will find information on signing up and you will also be able to create an Open your Shop account there. It is free to sign up and there are no up front charges.
HDME has bridged the gap between buyers and sellers alike. They have made buying and selling crafts and handmade products as simple as a click of a button on your phone. They aim to turn HDME into a learning place where people can also learn how to make a variety of handmade products.
South Africans have some incredible talent at making items by hand and HDME has now created a bigger platform to allow the buyer to have easier access to purchase these precious pieces.
