Put both skills to use with the The Traveler’s Collection, a new site that sells artisan goods from all over the world and allows you to nominate vendors you’ve discovered while traveling for inclusion in its online shop.
Perfect for those who spend more vacation time hunting down crafted earrings than hanging in museums, the site asks readers to scout far-flung places. So next time you fall for a farmers market basket in Morocco or a cozy Fair Isle sweater in County Clare, help share the creator’s work and story with a wider audience.
Get the vendor’s contact information and take pictures of your discovery. Upload the info when you get home, and if the site’s experts like it, they’ll source it and sell it (and you’ll even get a small commission).
Between trips, you can shop everyone else’s finds. Something for which you’re very well suited.
