About Us

Local Handmade Marketplace for Artists and Makers

South Central Makers is the upcoming Marketplace for local Artists and Crafters to sell their goods and the perfect place to find all your gifts locally. All lovely local gift shops rolled into one marketplace.

We encourage all artists and makers from Hampshire, Wiltshire and Dorset; this will give our customers a wonderful selection of local gift shops from which to buy their gifts.

We would love all kinds of artists, crafters, bakers and makers to join us. Our focus is for the local shopper, looking for something which perhaps they haven’t had time to go to the market or shops to find. But is handmade carefully and lovingly by local people. 

Goods can be delivered in the normal way, or can be collected from our regular Makers Markets which are held in Romsey, Southampton and Lyndhurst.  A perfect ‘Click and Collect’ solution. Find our market dates on the home page. 

Kate and Kerri created the South Central Makers brand because they saw a gap in the market for Arts and crafts. Being creative themselves and with a background in customer service and business management, they got together to create a central hub for local shoppers and artists alike.

SCM is a platform; all sales are securely processed here, but all of the money goes to the vendors. When you purchase here you are dealing with the vendor.

South Central Makers is a growing community and we look forward to welcoming you aboard. Why not visit our social pages for updates and chat.

Proud Supporters of Just a Card

Just a Card campaign supports the little guys like us, encouraging people to buy from designer/makers/artist and independent shops.

The campaign came about when Artist & Designer Sarah Hamilton saw the quote “If everyone who’d complimented our beautiful gallery had bought ‘just a card‘ we’d still be open” by store keepers who’d recently closed their gallery.
