Local artisans and vendors wanting to sell their products and unique gifts in an online craft shop in South Africa are increasingly signing up with The Market Place.shop, who recently launched their new-look website.
The Market Place.shop was found in 2005 with the aim of providing a platform for South African artists, designers, home crafters etc. where they can be found by potential buyers searching for unique gifts South Africa. It operates as an electronic based business on which people are presented with the opportunity to sell their goods or services as well as connect with a broader group of customers within their target market.
Their clientele consists of two types of people:
- Those individuals who are searching on the internet for unique gifts in South Africa and
- People who sell these items or offer those services within South Africa and wish to use our online craft shop as a network to do so.
We prefer to move away from the distribution of mass-produced goods that can be imported from the international markets and pride ourselves as being known to proudly support vendors and crafters in South Africa.
Our online craft shop is still in its early stage of initiating the electronic exchange of goods and services however, we currently offer a wide range of categories for potential vendors to list their products or services under. These are not limited to, but include:
- Handmade Clothing and Accessories
- Handcrafted Gifts
- Arts and Crafts
- Home Décor
- Men’s Gear
Our online shopping portal is best described as “a local farmers market on the web”. We strive to bridge the gap between the seller and any potential buyers that are using the internet as a tool for online shopping. The organization has realized this gap when it comes to internet trading and aspires to create direct contact between the two parties with the use of an online craft shop. This ensures that possible buyers visiting our website can view products and connect directly with the local artisans and service providers that make use of our platform.
By simply using the internet as a source for information, customers are granted complete access to search and find exactly what they are looking for. The Market Place online craft shop operates just as any other shopping website that you would find on the internet. Buyers can easily facilitate transactions, add items to the cart and successfully complete the checkout process all on our dedicated website. On the other hand, the seller has the ability to convey important information such as prices and provide a useful short description about the items on sale without any hassle.
Looking ahead, our main objective is to be able to grant local businesses, that fit our company profile, the advantage of increasingly overwhelming traffic towards their small-scale business by simply using our website as a well-established online market.

Quick Cape Town Fact: One of the oldest traditions in Cape Town is still alive and well, startling visitors at precisely midday—every day. An old cannon at the top of Signal Hill is fired off, sending a resounding boom around the CBD. It was originally meant to announce approaching ships, to let traders know it was time to haul their wares down to the harbour. The gun has gone off since 1806, and a second gun is always prepared in case of a misfire. Rumour has it the gun only failed once in those two centuries—because a spider interfered with the remote signal.
