Painters, sculptors, woodworkers and other artisans now have a way to turn their hobbies into profitable businesses.
Introducing ESTRINA, a new online marketplace where users can buy and sell handmade goods. It’s the perfect way for vendors to display their unique wares while buyers search for and purchase one of a kind, hard to find items.
For buyers, ESTRINA eliminates the need to spend countless weekends scouring the craft fair circuit to find that special item. Collectors of imported goods no longer need to travel abroad or pay exorbitant importer/exporter fees, or bid on items at live auction.
For sellers, ESTRINA is the perfect way to complement or even replace their current method of doing business. ESTRINA is also a great way for the casual hobbyist to make some extra cash. For those who have always been told, “You should sell these” by friends and relatives, now they can. A digital camera and a few mouse clicks are all that’s needed to turn a hobby into a small business.
How it works
Unlike online auction services, ESTRINA allows sellers to either set their price or negotiate with buyers. Items for sale on ESTRINA vary widely, and there’s little limit to what can be sold on the site, provided it’s handmade and legal to sell. Current categories include: accessories, arts, bags, purses, books, clothing, decorations, baby items, pet items, furniture, garden products, home decor, jewellery, items for kids, pottery, toys, wedding items, woodworks, vintage, craft supplies and more.
Along with the online marketplace, ESTRINA also provides a community feature where buyers and sellers can make special requests, share new ideas, collaborate on projects and much more.
ESTRINA is now online and open for business. Registration is 100 % free for buyers and sellers.
