Curation Nation

Following in the footsteps of Etsy-like sites including Foodzie (artisanal food), IndieReader (indie books), Market Publique (vintage fashion) and Lushpad (mid-century furniture), Wedzu is a curated marketplace for independent and handmade wedding goods.

Just launched last week, Texas-based Wedzu lets artists and other creatives set up a Wedzu store for free. They can list as many handmade and independent wedding items as they like; the only cost is when they make a sale, from which Wedzu charges a commission of 10 percent. Products on the site are organized into a number of categories, and sellers set their own prices, shipping policies and fees. Examples of items currently for sale on Wedzu include “Just Married” luggage tags, black satin blossom hair pins and a 4mm princess diamond ring.

When the market becomes overwhelming, the market turns to curation, as we've now seen demonstrated time and time again. Keep the curated marketplaces coming!
