When I was initially hatching the idea for Feast + West, I was in part inspired by the lack of homes for makers online. Sure, there’s Etsy. But I had a hard time searching for things I wanted there, like artisan gifts that were made locally in North Carolina or other areas. In response, I started a blog to collect those ideas and share them with others.

Kim Pace, the creator of Covet Atelier,  identified the same problem, but approached it in a totally different way. (I love that about creative people, don’t you?) Covet is a soon-to-be online shop for Carolina makers and artists, and I am so excited about it. This is exactly the kind of shop I was looking for. Right now there’s a Kickstarter campaign to fund the shop — I am really hoping it comes to be, because I would love to shop there.

Each maker will be handpicked for their quality, integrity and creativity. Covet will feature a profile on each maker, so customers can learn more about the artist, the location in the Carolinas they represent, the materials they use in their trade, details about their process and how they view themselves as part of the Carolinian artisan community.

There are so many makers here in North and South Carolina, and as a native I recognize that they — and their work — must be shared, enjoyed and cherished. I appreciate that Covet will feature something for everyone, including items for the home, for men and for women.

Covet won’t come to life without your help, though. If you find yourself craving a shop for Carolina-made artisan products too, consider backing the Covet Kickstarter campaign. There are so many awesome rewards you do not want to miss out on. (Including one by yours truly & Garnishing Co.!)

    How cool! I agree with you about Etsy — it’s so difficult to search for certain things there. And it can be hard for local artisans to get themselves out there with all the big stores in the way. But I always love finding new items like these. Thanks for creating another outlet for artists!
