If you haven’t heard about ’em yet, there are some cool new online shops supporting local talent that you should know about!
Hello Pretty is a cool new marketplace for South African independent creatives. It was started by five friends with an appreciation for South African design. You can find all kinds of goodies on there, from food, to vintage good, to art and lots more. Check it out here.
Spree is also an online marketplace for independent creatives, including designers, artisans, craftspeople, illustrators, photographers, artists and vintage collectors. Check it out and support local talent here.
Society6 isn’t local, but I wanted to throw it in the mix coz it’s been a favourite of mine for a few years already. It’s specifically for artwork, and the great thing about this site for sellers is that you upload your artwork and they produce and ship the products on your behalf, making it super simple.
It’s a site I frequent regularly for inspiration because of the awesome illustration I always find there.
I’ve started selling some prints and things on these sites, too. Check out Happiness is… on Hello Pretty, Spree, Society6.
Hope you find something you like, and if you have local products to sell, get your stuff on there now!
