Discover products from the Isle of Man's best small creative businesses

Within our online market, people anywhere can connect with Manx Makers to purchase unique goods made in the Isle of Man. We’re not a classifieds site where people can sell anything – everything listed for sale on Makers.im must be handmade in the Isle of Man. Buyers can come here to purchase items that they might not find anywhere else.

Humans do two things that make us unique from all other animals; we use tools and we tell stories. And when you make something, you’re doing both at once – Adam Savage

Each item on Makers.im is listed and sold by a seller who creates handmade items. There’s no huge Makers.im warehouse in the Isle of Man. When you shop on Makers.im, you’re directly supporting Manx independent sellers who manage their own orders and inventory.

Shopping on Makers.im works the same as anywhere else online. However, you’re not buying your items from Makers.im, the company. Instead, you’re buying directly from independent Manx sellers.

After visiting many of the “real life” craft markets on the island over the years, it is very clear that people on the Isle of Man make amazing things!

Then in 2019, the hugely unfortunate Royal Show washout left many local makers overstocked with products they didn’t have the opportunity to sell. Whilst some have Etsy shops, and some “sell” through Facebook, the cost of building out your own website and the time required to manage can be prohibitive for many people who only do this as a hobby. So, we decided to create Makers.im Marketplace so Isle of Man Makers can sell their amazing products all year round.

Makers.im provides a marketplace for crafters, artists and anything makers to sell their handmade creations. The only thing we ask is that everything sold is made in the Isle of Man.
