Crafty Magpie was created in June 2011 by Sarah O’Connell as a way of selling her handmade jewellery which she enjoyed making for friends & as a hobby.
While researching new crafts to pursue, Sarah became aware of the vast number of crafters & designers seeking a wider market for their creations thus, Crafty Magpie was born!
Sarah decided to set up a market place where crafters could show their wares to a wider audience.
With a tiny budget but huge enthusiasm, Sarah created a basic market place allowing her to create mini shops for fellow crafters.
As Crafty Magpie grew & became better known, Sarah needed to expand the market place and to offer more to her fellow crafters and their growing customer base. So, in 2013, Sarah persuaded her Mother, Orla – a business professional (cross-stitcher, knitter & cook!) – to join the business.
In October 2013, the market place was upgraded to allow crafters to create & manage their own shops, and have greater interaction with their customers.
Ordered and received my order within a week. And I absolutely love it! I’ve bought it for my wedding. Really nice that I received personal emails rather than automated ones about my order – progress and a picture of what the final product looked like before delivery.
Great customer service, made you feel apart of making it.
