The November give away is here!!
The competition closes and the winner is announced on 30th November - details below!
THE MISSION - To promote fellow indie designers and tell everyone about their wonderful work and just how amazing they are. So what!? Why are we different? We have noticed that despite a high demand, there is lack of free representation for Indie designers in the UK, there are plenty of US sites, but what about when you want to reach an audience closer to home? So we are making it our business to fill the gap and get you designers and crafters seen - for free! Not from the UK but want to reach out to a new market? Thats ok, we'd love to feature you too.

THE ETHOS - Everyone benefits buying handmade. Fact. We know this and by the time we're finished the world will know it! Partners in Crime is about spreading the 'handmade' word, so come on - shout about it with us! We know that we don't know it all, and are always open to your suggestions to improving the site, so don't be shy.

THE PRODUCTS - Everything and anything handmade - the more unusual the better, we love discovering something completely different

Remember we need to work together to spread the word, so when you've been featured, tell everyone you know, to tell everyone they know, by linking back to us here, and before we know it- the whole world will know all about YOUR craft!


Linda Boucher

Self taught painter Linda Boucher generally paints oil on canvas, and is best known for her paintings of red shoes and glamorous women. Linda taught her self to paint whilst simultaneously selling her work and found it a thrilling experience, however she soon felt that there was a pressure to produce the kind of work that is popular and found that it often stunted her experimental creating.

Linda then discovered Etsy and ACEOS (Artist Cards, Editions and Originals- which are always 2.5”x3.5”). She says "My paintings are big, and these are so small, that they’ve pushed me to think of new ways to present my ideas". Linda is having fun working in this way and is getting used to thinking small and is excited to be working this format and to seeing where it takes her.

You can view lots of Linda's work on her main website, on her etsy shop and at, and her work is available to buy internationally too!
