Supermarket Sarah has set up shop in her own home. Her home, round the corner from Portobello Market where she has a stall, is now overflowing with treasures and delights and she welcomes visitors with tea and cakes.

Places that you could sell online that we know about are:

Fashion:

The Thread Loop is New Zealand's answer to shopping fashionably and shopping consciously. We support Kiwi designers who consider more than just their bottom-line; they all find a way to balance ethics with aesthetics and style with sustainability (yay!) and we've done our best to label their efforts so you know what you're actually buying.

Handmade:

Buy and sell handmade or vintage items, art and supplies on Etsy, the world's most vibrant handmade marketplace.

Felt is a New Zealand-based online marketplace for handmade goods, designed to enable artists, designers and craftspeople to promote their work and connect with buyers.

i-Tunes the world's best digital music jukebox. Download music, TV shows, movies, and more.

Pasifika:

The products that you find on Pasifika Market are created by artists whose work is a continuation of tradition, using skills they have been taught by their elders and passed on from generation to generation.
