Unlike some other online platforms, we curate our website so that the gifts offered to our customers remain of high a quality and a diverse range; both to offer our customers truly special gifts and to not saturate our website with similar products (to keep it fair for you)

A little about us

The Little Craft Shack is primarily (but not solely)  an online business based in Christchurch, Dorset; a historic town near beautiful beaches on the edge of the New Forest National Park.

We curate the Art & Craft at select local events & festivals.

In 2019 we curated the Arts & Crafts at the first Burley Festival (in the heart of the New Forest) and the prestigious Highcliffe Food & Arts Festival. The Little Craft Shack put the Arts into the Highcliffe Food Festival and are now proud to be the only curators of Arts & Crafts at the (now renamed) Highcliffe Food & Arts Festival.

We are always happy to answer any queries and can be contacted directly.

We pride ourselves in the level of support we offer our sellers and customers.


Your "Little Craft Shack"

You will have your own online shop with your own custom URL under the umbrella of The Little Craft Shack. 

You will have access to your own Vendor Admin area (password protected) where you can keep track of sales, print Shipping labels, invoices & Compliment Slips to include with your deliveries.


Why Us?

We get your work online at the fraction of what it would cost to set up your own website.

  • There are NO membership costs.
  • There are NO contracts.
  • There are NO hidden costs
  • There are NO offline ad fees
  • There are NO additional Payment Processing fees on sales

We simply operate on a commission basis. We deduct 15% from successful sales. You don't need a calculator app to work out how much money will be in YOUR  pocket.

Payments on successful sales are processed by us and paid directly into your account by BACS after the standard Statutory Returns period.



We would love to hear from you,

Loz & Kat @ The Little Craft Shack
