MISI (“Make It Sell It”) an innovative online craft marketplace. Since its launch MISI has grown phenomenally and today the site has over 3000 sellers and is now generating over 75000 visitors a month.
MISI’s mission is to challenge the role of the high street by introducing the people who buy directly to the people who make. It is the brainchild of keen crafter, web developer and young Mother of two Emma Hogg. Emma explains, “I have always had a great passion for British crafts. We are constantly being told by the likes of Jamie Oliver and Gordon Ramsey to cook homemade and Support local British farmers, but why stop at food? Food miles aren’t the only miles that matter! It gives me a huge buzz to support small craft businesses and watch them turn a passionate hobby into a profitable reality”
To celebrate the success MISI will be bringing the online world of internet crafters offline for the first time. The MISI event is being held on November 7th . It will give MISI followers and crafts people across the region the opportunity to sell their products in exciting and vibrant surroundings. The show will be open from 10.30am to 5.00pm and entry is just £2.50 per person, with children under 14 being allowed in free. The first 100 visitors will also receive a goody bag crammed with information and samples. “We hope this will be the first of a series of shows,” says Emma. “Look out for details of the MISI event road show shortly!!
