What is a Collection and how do I create one?
Collection is an ever-changing, seller and shopper-curated gallery comprised of lists of items from the Handmadeology Market.
These lists contain 12 items. Anyone can create a themed collection or feature their favorite items from the Handmadeology Market.
What you need to know before getting started
- Collections can be used for self-promotion or putting together your favorite items.
- There is no limit to the number of lists you can create.
- The number of likes your collection receives determines if it gets featured or not.
- The collections with the most “likes” will be added to the featured section.
