It’s been a difficult year for all local businesses – and local makers have been some of the hardest hit. With Champaign-Urbana area markets, craft shows, holiday pop-ups and other shopping events largely cancelled, it’s been difficult for many makers to reach their customers.
One of the things that makes our community unique is its robust maker movement, and we want to help connect makers with customers.
Chambanamoms.com invites local makers from the greater Champaign-Urbana area to be included in a Local Makers Gift Guide.
As long as you hand-craft something locally, and those items are family-friendly (but don’t need to be just for kids), you’re welcome to submit a listing for consideration.
Participants must agree to help promote the gift guide in exchange for a complimentary listing. This is a supportive community, and we want to support fellow makers. Win-win.
All listings are at the discretion of chambanamoms.com.
Who can be included?
- You must live in the greater Champaign-Urbana metro area (Champaign County and surrounding counties – Piatt, DeWitt, Ford, Douglas, Vermilion).
- Produce your product by hand.
- Have an online shop that we can link to, preferably on with your own website or on Etsy, or something similar. (Sorry, we can’t link to private Facebook groups.)
Who is not eligible?
- MLM businesses
- Resale or vintage resale businesses
When will this be published?
We hope to publish this by November 1, and will keep adding listings as they come in.
