What is Eclectic Artisans?

Eclectic Artisans, the name is catchy, but what is it, and as a pagan, why should I know about it? Eclectic Artisans was a concept that came into fruition back in January of 2012. The idea stemmed from Hugh Carey, the companies founder.

"I realized that there wasn't a place online for people within the pagan community to be able to come together in a centralized location in order to showcase and sell unique, hand crafted ritual tools, spell supplies, magickal components, and witchie items, that we as pagans enjoy and use," said Hugh Carey. Sure, there are many places to choose from online for Pagan artists & creators to sell to the general public, but depending on the marketplace, you end up getting buried within the competition. There are so many talented people who make beautiful hand crafted products geared towards the pagan community, and more often then not, they don't have a place to shine. Well, that is where Eclectic Artisans comes in to play.

We have created a platform, by pagans, for pagans, that gives talented people who create pagan/wiccan themed items, a place to shine. Since Eclectic Artisans is a marketplace specifically created for the Pagan, Wiccan and New Age Communities, the people who showcase their items within our marketplace end up getting seen by the actual people who are more apt to purchase their items. That is half the work of having success with selling such niche items online.

Our goal is to continue to be a trusted source, where both perspective customers and talented vendors can benefit from an outlet that provides quality, handmade wiccan supplies and pagan themed items.

What Makes Eclectic Artisans Unique?

EA is unique because it isn’t just an online store. Eclectic Artisans ties together the concepts and benefits of an online marketplace, specialty shops & stores, small businesses, brick and mortar shops and consignment shops-all together in one, to provide a resource for the Pagan, Wiccan, New Age & Metaphysical communities. This is done as a means to provide a central resource to a very specific community that was lacking the specialty and quality of an all-encompassing & affordable one stop marketplace, that with an internet connection, people of this specific community is able to access from anywhere.
