iCraft has the perfect gifts for St. Patrick’s Day

This year I’m making the move to selling my handmade crafts online. After considerable research, I’ve chosen icraftgifts.com, an online craft marketplace focused on the genuinely handmade. No resellers, vintage or manufactured goods. I chose iCraft because of these values and also because I liked the look of the site, the interesting and helpful community of sellers, and the ease of setting up a store.

In the iCraft marketplace, you actually run your own online shop: you include the images and tags, andyou do the promotion. There is a comprehensive help section and lessons to follow in the BootCamp section of the site. Once registered, you can contact the Admin folks who respond quickly and are very helpful. The community at iCraft is also very supportive and helpful with any questions you may have about your store.

I highly recommend iCraft to any crafter interested in selling on a handmade-focused online marketplace. The benefits of iCraft for sellers are set out clearly on the website. Learn more about how to sell your handmade gifts at icraftgifts.com/sell.php.

I’ve also had quite a bit of experience buying from iCraft. The selection is huge and it’s easy to find the exact gift you are searching for. In honour of St. Patrick’s Day this year, I found lots of interesting handmade crafts. The site is user friendly, bright and engaging. If you would like to discuss a custom order, or ask a question about items in a store, you can communicate directly with the seller via the iCraft site. All payments are through PayPal, a safe function for paying directly from your bank account. A credit card is not required, although that is a payment option if you prefer.

If you are interested in picking up handcrafted one of a kind gifts for any occasion, or just for yourself, I encourage you to shop for handmade gifts at icraftgifts.com.

iCraft has a large collection of gifts suitable for St. Patrick’s Day. One of the most familiar symbols of Saint Patrick’s Day is the shamrock, one leaf with three parts. It is Ireland’s national emblem because of the legend that Saint Patrick used it to illustrate the doctrine of the Trinity. The green of shamrock that Christians proudly wore transformed into wearing an item of green clothing on March 17. The Irish and many people of other nationalities believe that shamrocks bring good luck.
