DIY Fridays (NEW)
Each week we provide our readers with a DIY Project that they can do themselves. 

Do you have a project you would like to share with our shoppers? If it is a crafty project that can easily be made (even for the non crafty or the slightly crafty minded) then we will promote it for you. It can be an existing project that you have already published on your blog or elsewhere or a new DIY project you would like to share with the world.

We will post pictures and links to your blog/website of where the DIY project can be found, resulting in direct traffic to your website/blog. It’s a great way to introduce your brand to a new audience and get them to your website/blog. Projects will also be posted to our DIY Friday pinterest board.

To have your DIY project published email us your link to your project and if it meets our criteria we will do the rest.

Face Behind the Name Interviews (NEW)
Interviews are a great way for your target audience to get to know you and to make a connection with you. 

Let us share your handmade journey, what makes you tick and what you love in a one on one interview. Let us share your world with the rest of the world. It’s totally free and we will showcase one handmaiden or man each month.

Product Reviews (NEW)
Product reviews and testimonials are great if you are a relatively new business and want to show customers that you are a brand they can rely on and trust from people that have actually tried and tested your product. 

We have a team of independent reviewers who will put your product through its paces and provide positive feedback on your product which will then be published on our blog. Only positive feedback will be posted to our blog and if there is any negative feedback this will be communicated with you directly so you can help improve your product or make modifications.

Product reviews only cost you the value of your item to be reviewed. There is no cost involved with us posting it to our blog. To have your product reviewed email us and send your product to:

Shop Contemporary Handmade
PO Box 3600
Erina NSW 2250
