The launch of the Jurassic Coast Collective: A marketplace that supports local producers
If you’re looking for new ways to sell your products, creations, arts, and crafts, then listen up!
A wonderful team in Bridport & West Bay have started up the Jurassic Coast Collective in a bid to do whatever they can to support local business. The Collective is an online platform that allows people to buy and sell locally-made products.
Here’s more about how it works.
What is it?
The Jurassic Coast Collective is a website, similar to Etsy, which gives people the option to upload and sell their locally-made products. Limited to this region only, the platform aims to give local creators the chance to showcase and sell their creations where things like morning markets and gift shops no longer allow.
Started by the team that also runs the Bridport Coronavirus Support group, their aim was to extend the available help and encourage small traders to continue trading while also encourage shoppers to buy local. It’s no secret that our area has an incredible amazing community spirit, and holds an abundance of crafts and arts produced locally.
If you want to sell products
Becoming a vendor on the site is easy. You register your details and create a profile for yourself. Once all approved, you can then start to upload your products, giving them a price, and getting them ready for sale. The categories for selling include jewelry & accessories, clothes & shoes, art & collectibles, home & living, toys & entertainment, vintage, furniture & upholstery, crafts, and food & drink. And if you’re not sure whether your product is suitable to be sold on the website, the team are on hand to help in whatever way they can.
If you want to buy products
Buying products on the website is as simple as any other type of online buying you’d know. Simply find the product you like, add it to the cart, and checkout. Take a look at the vendor’s other products, or browse for similar types of things that may catch your interest.
The website has just recently been launched and is now waiting for vendors to upload their products, ready for sale. If you’re looking to sell your creations under a common Jurassic Coast umbrella, then visit https://www.thejurassiccoast.co/ and start selling.
