Welcome to the Addled Monkey Blog - MonkeyMill!

Don't be shy, come on in, grab a mug of virtual cocoa and put your feet up. But please take off those muddy shoes first; we at the MonkeyMill can be a bit precious about the state of our soft furnishings.

Who are we?

We are a growing community of amateur and emerging artists, keen to list our work for sale, and to promote it on the internet using ethical marketing techniques.

We recognise that not everyone has the time, confidence, tech know-how or budget to take those first few steps out of their workspace - which means that the rest of us are missing out on seeing their art, and we are the poorer for it.

The concept of Addled Monkey is to not just offer those artisans a marketplace on which to list their products for free (there are plenty of sites far larger than us that do that) but crucially to offer FREE product promotion and marketing.

This means that you can go about making the most sumptuous works of art, safe in the knowledge that it is being passionately exhibited to the entire interweb thingy, through that "social media" wotsit.

The site takes a small commission only on succesful sales which goes towards upkeep, site development and promotion. No shareholders, no salaries.

The project is organic and rough round the edges. It operates on a shoestring budget and has progressed from an initial startup investment of £1.99.

Sure, we lack the polish and pomp of the big marketplaces, but that's part of our charm!

Come and get involved today! Email us, visit the site or our Facebook page using the links above. We will post news, articles and images of our partners work right here, so please subscribe if you'd like to see new, affordable, original arts and crafts!
