Emma Sharman, director of Swanky Maison, said: "Our partners prefer to spend their time making their handcrafted home wares, not selling it.
"They leave that to us. The result is a really great marketplace for those looking for something just a little bit different, either as a gift for someone special or for a treat for themselves.
"We pride ourselves on the quality of both the service we provide and the goods our partners create.
We are very discerning in our choice of partners and personally select everything you''ll find on this site. Whilst we strive to offer choice, maintaining quality is vital to our proposition. We love it all and hope you do too!" Swanky Maison is currently offering the chance to win pounds 100 to spend on the site.
