Frequently asked questions
Great Lakes Made stands for small businesses and makers of unique things. This marketplace was created as a collaborative environment for small businesses to target a niche audience of small business shoppers, cut through all the red tape, and reduce the competition that you would face on international marketplaces that are saturated with products in every retail category.
Made is actually an acronym from our original marketplace that launched in 2015, Great Lakes M.A.D.E, which is Great Lakes Maker And Designer Entrepreneurs. You’re welcome to announce that you’re a new seller on Great Lakes Maker and Designer Entrepreneurs, but that might leave you a little winded. Great Lakes Made will do just fine.
