American Made Market, exclusively on eBay
What is the American Made Market?
An extension of Martha Stewart’s American Made, the American Made Market on eBay celebrates a new generation of great American makers –– people who are building a life out of their passions; people whose stories are only possible in America.
By supporting small businesses and small-batch makers, communities are contributing to a big movement. It’s a movement that connects goods to the people and histories that helped create them.
That growing desire for connection has led to the launch of the American Made Market on eBay. With your support, we will continue to celebrate the people and the products that bring the essence of the American story to life. Discover our favorite American makers and products, handpicked for you each month by Martha and the editors at Martha Stewart Living.
How can I join the American Made Market?
