Are you the sort of person who likes to buy products that are made locally? Do you like to give local small businesses a chance over big corporate companies? Then you should take a look at MadeCloser. MadeCloser is a place where customers can buy any goods that are orginally manufactured locally; sorted by area - in order of local, regional, national or continental location. It then works as an online marketplace, where shoppers who care about local economies, sustainable commerce, and helping out locals, and can chose products from a wide-ranging cataogue of products - all of which are made closer!
All of the manufacturers and producers of all the products listed on MadeCloser have passion for what they make, so that you know everything is made because they enjoy making it, not because they have to! All of the products on MadeCloser are listed by genre, making it easy for you to sort through what you are looking for. You can also put in your postcode to find products that are made locally to you.
Of course when I was looking through the site one of the first categories I went to was the beauty section! I wasn't sure what to expect as I'd not come across MadeCloser before, but I was pleasantly surprised at the amount of products and choice available. Not only have I been admiring the beauty section, but there's also a few iPhone cases I've had my eye on, as well as some hand knitted mug cosy's and some gorgeous sounding candles!
I really love the range of wall stickers, especially this one. I think they're great if you're looking to add something extra to your home. I really love how everything has that handmade touch to it, rather than the same products you say in every high street shop. I'm certainly impressed with MadeCloser and will definitely keep them in mind next time I'm doing an online shop!
