About the Cube-Fam

As a member of the cube-fam you get more than just a place to sell your stuff… You get a community of like-minded people, working together and cheering each other on at the sidelines.

As a member you can list your handmade products on our online store without paying any commission on sales and we handle the customer service and shipping of items to our customers. We do all the marketing of the store, and you get to sit back and focus on the part you really love… making!

Will you help me grow my business?

Hell yes! This is what we’re all about!

In our cuber group, you’ll be able to participate in a monthly live-chat catch-up and a monthly business development workshop from an industry professional to help you level up your brand.

We also run workshops on topics like instagram, seo, websites, branding, graphic design and more and you can also book 1:1 mentoring sessions to level up your brand anytime!

How does it work?

  • You become a member;
  • You get involved in our online community;
  • Profit! Well, almost…And if selling with us online or in store,
  • You list your products on our portal;
  • You send them to us;
  • We do the marketing and shipping;
  • And we’re here to help you along the way!

Will you promote my work?

Absolutely! Cubers on our Sell or Grow package are promoted via our  social media marketing (7,500 facebook and 5,800 insta) and email marketing to 3,500 people and are even able to collaborate with us on product launches and pop ups in our space! That’s exposure to more than 16,000 handmade lovers!

Not only that, but we will teach YOU how to promote yourself better, empowering you to grow your business!

Can I rent a cube in the store?

If you would like to also have a cube in the physical store(s) you can book at anytime and pay by the day (discounts for long term cubers) to release a new collection, test a new product or just to have a physical shop front as one of our retail cubers! Many of our cube renters have been with us for years, and consider their cube the retail arm of their business!

Can I just join the community but not sell product? I'm not ready yet but want to learn!

Yes absolutely! Our $39 membership was made for makers and artists who want to learn but not sell (yet) so jump on in!
