Connecting those who love the art of handmade!


Created in 1996 served to teach the art and craft market how to build websites, market their sites and connect with others on the internet. As the internet grew we saw the industry was lost in a vast sea of websites. Recently we transitioned over to the directory in an effort to help connect art and craft buyers and sellers.

OUR MISSION: Supporting the “Art of Handmade” by connecting those interested in buying or selling art and crafts. Our goal is to help strengthen the Art and Craft market by providing links to amazing works of art and provide the small business owner exposure.

The Craftgate Family
