About Us

Welcome to the IndieMe Marketplace

IndieMe™ is the premier Woman-Owned, online marketplace for retailers to source over 150,000 handcrafted products from juried American and Canadian wholesale artists featuring jewelry, gifts, fashion accessories, home decor, garden accessories and more, in a variety of price points and styles. Enrollment is free for retailers. Artists pay a web service fee and are eligible for many marketing opportunities including IndieMe™'s printed Buyer's Guide catalog, and co-op advertising in top trade publications. Commissions are not charged on sales. Unlike other marketplaces, IndieMe is a privately owned company, focused on the needs of the artists and the buyers and not focused on profits and keeping investors satisfied.

For over 23 years IndieMe has been a partner and an advocate for both artists and buyers alike. We are proud of what we have done and what we continue to accomplish to help you build your businesses. This creative spirit is reflected within our name IndieMe. Indie stands for Independent and that is who you are - independent business owners who strive to "Grow the Handmade in the USA" movement. 

As experts in the world of handcrafted products and the digital tools used to sell them, we promise to continue to provide stellar customer service along with the tools and strategy you rely on to successfully scale your business. As the future unfolds look for continuous technology based enhancements for the wholesale industry.
