About Makers Alley

We started Makers Alley because there are talented makers in our own backyards who are having a tough time competing against the big retailers. We want to make it easy to discover them and get custom, built to order pieces made without having to spend an arm and a leg. Good design isn't something that's cheap and quick but it also shouldn't be expensive and take years.
