Before you make a purchase from any of our Home Crafters you will need to register on the site. This is very quick and easy to do and ensures that purchasing from each of our sellers is really simple. I promise, you won't be inundated with spam and the information you provide remains within our community only. At The Home Crafters, we value and respect your confidentiality at all times.
How to shop
If you hover over 'Shop' (above) you will see a list of categories, this is where you will find all the lovely things that are available to buy from The Home Crafters. Click each category to browse all the items available. When you see something you like just click on the picture and you will be taken to the product page which will show you the item in more detail. Within the details of the product page you will see more information about the crafter who made it and a link to their stall (under the main product picture) When you add an item to your basket you have the option to add special instructions to the seller - this is particularly useful when ordering a bespoke/made to order item; make sure you are specific about your requirements here. To continue browsing your chosen (or another) category or visit the sellers stall to see more of their products, just close the basket pop up using the 'x' - don't worry you can return to your basket at any time by clicking the icon at the top of the page.
Should you wish to contact a seller directly, to request details about a custom-made product for example, simply use the link in the item description to visit the sellers profile page (this is under the main product picture) Your query will go directly to the seller from your personal email account for you to start a conversation outside of The Home Crafters.
Postage & Packaging
As all our items are different, created and sold by individual crafters - and for ease of use - postage costs have been built-in to the quoted product prices.
Please bear this in mind when comparing these items with some you may have seen elsewhere.
This built-in cost is for standard delivery to UK mainland destinations only; please expect to pay an additional charge directly to the seller on items for delivery outside of this parameter.
Our site has been created just like a craft fair. We have brought together a host of local crafters into one place so you can view and purchase their creations. With this in mind, if you are purchasing lots of different products, please be prepared to deal with sellers individually.
Having built-in postage costs means you may purchase items from several crafters in one easy transaction but, please be aware that in doing so, you are likely to consequently receive several communications and/or deliveries from several crafters. Likewise if you purchase a combination of items 'off the peg' and others that are made to order or altered to your specifications this may also mean that some items are delivered later than others.
If you are purchasing items as gifts it is recommended you contact the individual seller before hand for an accurate production/delivery time-scale.
Please do remember that this is a UK based site, as such all products are priced to include standard UK delivery. If you are from outside the UK and wish to purchase something, you are more than welcome but it is recommended that you please make contact with the seller to discuss this beforehand. This is easily done by visiting the seller's profile page (a link to which will be found under the main image of any of their items) and following the instructions to contact.
To make it even easier for you to find the products you really want we also have a Directory of Crafters! Here you will find an alphabetical list of all our Crafters with links to their profile pages. Each page contains a brief back-story of our Crafters, who they are and what they do and will also contain details to contact them directly as well as a link to their own collections here on the website. So whether you are a buyer or a seller and need to find that perfect business for your needs, then look no further, they are bound to be listed here!
