In 1999, our founder, Dave Bolotsky, visited a craft show and was inspired to build something that had never existed before: an online marketplace to connect makers and their creations with shoppers looking for truly unique goods.
Over the last 24 years, we’ve grown to approximately 200 year-round team members with thousands of packages heading from our home in Brooklyn to customers across the country each day.
- We partner with non-profit organizations through our Better to Give program. With every purchase you make, we're proud to donate $1 to a partner of your choice ($2 for Perks members).
- Since launching Better to Give in 2001, we've donated more than two million dollars to causes we care about.
- Through our Better to Give program, we've helped support worthy organizations including Nest's Makers United, American Forests, and International Rescue Committee. Learn more about them here.
