Designed in Dorset has been live for just over a year now and sales are on the increase across the board. As a unique marketplace supporting Dorset Based businesses, it gives us great pleasure to see sales up 100% on last year. With over 70 Dorset based businesses designing and making their own products for sale on the website we now have over 700 items for sale.
A bumper Christmas with customers looking to support a local business instead of shopping with the usual suspects like Amazon and Ebay, we have seen an uplift boosted by the lockdowns. Not only were customers looking for unique handmade Covid related products such as facemasks, they were also looking for special gifts for family and loved ones that could have been made in their village or town.
Our best selling items for this month have been as follows:
1. Handmade Greeting Cards by Celia Harvey Art
These stunning greeting cards are hand made in Dorset by Celia. If you are looking for a unique gift card to go with your next gifting opportunity then we couldn't recomend them more.
2. Tie Die Hoodies - Style by Soph
Our own children are now wearing Sophie's beautiful creations and she proved popular over the Christmasd period for parents looking for unique gifts for their children.
