This is a virtual marketplace worth visiting, not least because it has some of the best artists, writers and makers, but also because it is one of the easiest virtual marketplaces to navigate. Each artisan has a ‘stall’, just like a real Arts & Crafts market. Visitors can browse around similar to how they would if they were wandering around a real venue. The only difference is that we are seeing the products in 2D rather than the full 3D experience of a real live event. But most of us have got used to online shopping during the difficult times of the pandemic restrictions. And it is safer.
When you enter the Art Craft Finder Christmas Market you will notice that the order of ‘tables’ does not always follow a chronological list. This makes for a good and fair practice by the organisers, Art Craft Finder. It means that every stallholder has a chance of being seen near the ‘entrance’ of the marketplace and it makes for a more enjoyable repeat visit for shoppers. You will also notice that there is a search bar right at the top of the page. This means that you can search for a particular table or artisan and go straight there. Now that is a bonus if you know what you want but don’t want to plough through lots of tables to get there. However, I would encourage you to browse some other stalls once you have found what you are looking for. There really are such a wide variety of products available from some of the best artists and crafters around. I went shopping in the previous market, bought a beautiful scarf from North Star Quilting then went back and bought another for a birthday present next year!
Ainetheon Arts is on table 14 in this Christmas Market. The link should take you straight there but do take the time to visit the other tables. Time is running out to get those last few special presents. The Christmas Market ends on 20th December 2020 so don’t delay too long. I’d love to hear from you if you do visit the Christmas Market. All feedback is very welcome.
Enjoy the Christmas season,
