Well that is a dose of some great color and what better way to brighten up your home for the summer or just for a little makeover in that room that needs a little extra love.  We love Shae’s home accessory line and can’t wait to see what else she is planning to launch in her new line.  Stop by her store and see her beautiful modern line of home accessories and also see her full line on her website.  Follow her on Facebook & Twitter to see what she has up her sleeve next!

Thanks Shae for sharing with us what Skoope Home is all about!

Forums stay! Thanks for all the feedback on the topic of whether or not to keep the forums. We have changed them a little bit to avoid all the spam that we were getting. Effing spammers!!

So the deal is, only approved sellers will be abe to post in the forums from now on. It will continue to be a great place for sellers to help other sellers, and to discuss topics relating to selling, owning a Cargoh store, or whether to grab a beer after work. 

The Cargoh staff will be checking in on the forums from time to time, but we will not be super active here. If anyone has immediate concerns, questions that need answering, or just want to say hi, email us at [email protected] or share some love on Twitter or Facebook. We are always happy to help out!

So take that spammers! 

And thanks again for all the feedback. We love that we...

When it comes to indie craft shows, no one does it better than the team at Make It Productions! They put a spin on the traditional show by throwing big boy/girl drinks and DJ's into the mix. They describe themselves as a sweet mullet...... craft show in the front........party in the back. Sounds like the perfect way to spend a day to me! It's the first time in the history of craft shows that guys have actually had a great time, and had a huge amounts of unique products to choose from!

We are super proud to announce that we will teaming up with Jenna and Chandler to bring you the best independent seller experience both online and offline! Our goals, to create a fun, social and exciting buying and selling experience, are perfectly inline, so watch out! We're about to change the game!

Hi, 

We are looking for some feedback on a little problem we have been having. I am not sure if anyone has been noticing, but our forums have become a breeding ground for spam. So far I have mistakenly bought two Black and Decker drills and visited some questionable sites! 

The forums for us have always been a place where the community helps each other, and while we like the idea, we wish our team at Cargoh could be more involved. I am sure you have noticed that we respond to email queries, social media and direct requests much faster than the forum, and that is just because it is much easier to grab our attention that way.

So here's what we propose:

  1. We get rid of the forums - that way people aren't subjected to long waits for resolutions and I won't find myself buying any more drills
  2. We utilize the amazing forum that is...

Hi All,

So by now I am assuming you might have checked out the new homepage? (If not, here it is!) We're hoping it drastically improves buyers ability to find the products they are looking for, and some that might catch them by surprise. It also allows all sellers the opportunity to reach the front page all the time, which we think is pretty cool!

One other thing to note, is that we will be re-arranging the categories to fit the new homepage. You will see many more, better arranged categories, so check in and make sure that your products are still where you want them to be.

We are super excited about our new pages. We are super committed to listening to our awesome community of sellers and buyers, and we hope that the changes reflect that.

Oh, and standby for a couple more changes coming soon.

Love

The Cargoh Team

Well, it's been one hell of a week, but we've survived. And so have some of you! Have you noticed? We know it's been a long wait for everyone, but we are happy (and relieved) to announce that if you have a shop on Cargoh and it's still standing after the blitz, then WELCOME ABOARD. That's right. The wait is over. Our curation process is complete, and our marketplace is officially open for business. So go forth, shop, connect, enjoy.

We are so grateful to our amazing sellers and our swiftly growing community for sticking with us through the craziness.  We can't wait to get to know all of you better and see where this thing takes us! And as always, if you have questions/comments/concerns (or better yet, compliments!) you can reach us at [email protected].

Faithfully yours,

The Cargoh Team.

 

...And now if you'll excuse us...we could really use a nap and a nervous breakdown.

Hi All,

So...WOW. These past few days have been...uh...a wild ride here at Cargoh. The feedback on our new policies is flowing in hard and fast, both the positive and the negative, and we're doing our best to keep up with all of it. But since our ears are burning like the hills of Los Angeles we thought we'd try to clear the air on a few major points.

  1. Cargoh as a company is in the very early stages of it's life, and still very much enrolled in the school of hard knocks. It's kind of like we're going through puberty right now, and these are our growing pains. Our awkward period. You get the gist. We're learning every day.
  2. When we launched twelve weeks ago, we invited some of our favorite artists and designers to join the beta marketplace. We focused all of our energy on the art and design markets, handpicking sellers to help us communicate the vibe of Cargoh. As we've said before, it was never our intention to compete with the...
