How do you find these amazing products/businesses?
In the endless depths of the internet, usually. I tend to surf the web (is this just me or does this sound very 90’s?) for hours on end, until I stumble upon those items that are a. beautiful b. come with a good story and c. make me want to tell the everyone about this.
What’s an online marketplace and why did you make a directory?
An online marketplace is a place where designers/artists can open up a shop to sell their goods. Etsy is the biggest one, but by no means the only place where you can find some real gems. That’s why I decided to list other marketplaces where you can find handmade items.
I am a designer/maker/artist, what do I have to do to get featured on Good Ideas Grow On Trees?
I ask you to first have a browse around the past features, this should give you a general idea of what GIGOT is all about. Does your product seem like a good fit? Do get in touch, I’d love to hear your story!
Where do I go buy these items?
In every feature you can find a link to the makers’ website. Many of them have their own online shop, some of them sell through online marketplaces, and others may have a list of stockists you could visit. Visit their website and you will find out! If you end up buying something after discovering it on GIGOT, I’d love to hear/see! Tweet or instagram to @goodideasgrow, or send an email.
Do you own everything you feature here?
Sadly, no. That would like living in an Alice in wonderland fairytale dream land.
