What Makes Eclectic
EA is unique because it isn’t just an online store. Eclectic
Artisans ties together the concepts and benefits of an online marketplace,
specialty shops & stores, small businesses, brick and mortar shops and
consignment shops- all together in one, to provide a resource for the Pagan,
Wiccan, New Age & Metaphysical communities. This is done as a means to
provide a central resource to a very specific community that was lacking the
specialty and quality of an all-encompassing & affordable one stop
marketplace, that with an internet connection, people of this specific
community is able to access from anywhere.
