How it works
1. Sign up for an account.
2. If you're a shopper: shop! As much as you can. Each transaction is handled separately, between you and the local artist, maker, or small business.
3. If you're an artist, maker or small business in the greater Tampa Bay region, first sign up for an account and then message us with a link to your business so we can verify it is locally owned and independent, and based in the greater Tampa Bay region. We will update your settings and email you to let you known you may start listing your products and services.
Everyone can have up to 10 active listings. Please include tax in the price. You'll be able to add shipping fees, if you'd like. To help local businesses rebound from the economic crisis resulting from covid19, LocalShops1 is NOT charging any listing fees or any commissions through Dec 31, 2020. Payments are processed through PayPal, and standard PayPal fees apply, so take those into account when pricing your products.

LocalShops1's Tampa Bay Marketplace allows locally owned businesses in the Tampa Bay region to sell products, services, and gift cards. All transactions are directly between the seller and the buyer, and the payment goes directly to the seller.
