ArtFire, Your Home for Handmade, an online marketplace where artists can sell handmade items, supplies, and vintage items with no listing or final value fees.

Known for unique shopping and selling tools to boost internet exposure for handmade artists such as Market Hub, Rapid Cart, Facebook Kiosk and enhanced search tools. Hundreds of different craft categories from handmade jewelry, handmade soap, handmade bags, handmade candles to handmade dolls, metal craft, handmade clothing, and art.

Unique and eclectic community with hundreds of thousands of OOAK and hand crafted items made with care by artists running small businesses, and indie artists.
