The ones that got closed down or acquired

This is the list of handmade marketplaces that didn't make it to 2019 for various reasons. Some of them have officially closed down, a few were acquired by larger platforms, the rest just went silent at some point (many due to a broken marketplace revenue model, I assume).

I'm including these names here mostly for historical purposes:

  • All Things Original
  • Artisna dead/closed
  • Artyah
  • DaWanda (acquired by Etsy)
  • Coriandr
  • Country Finest
  • Craftly/Goodsmiths
  • EthicalStores
  • Free Craft Fair
  • Hatch.co
  • JustCustom/JustHandmade
  • madeitmyself
  • My E Hive
  • Not Mass Produced
  • PoppyTalkHandmade
  • Shopwindoz
  • Silkfair
  • ShopWindoz
  • SwankyMaison
  • Tictail (acquired by Shopify)
  • UglyBeGone
  • Withal
  • Yokaboo

Who knows, perhaps one day we'll see some of them pop back up again – but for now you'll need to stick to the other platforms for all your handmade marketplace needs.
