MetaFilter has a Mall! November 30, 2020 2:57 PM   Subscribe

Do you have a thing to sell? Do you want to buy some things from other MeFites? There is a Mall. It's a little homemade, but it's here and it's available for you to put a link or links to things you have for sale. If you had a shop in the mall previously, it's still there (we usually take it down for a reboot after holidays but didn't this year). Here is the link to submit your new shop. If you need to edit/delete a shop, drop us a note at the Contact Form.

If this is your first year, welcome! The MeFi Mall is for things that you make and sell online. Please only add your shop if it's stuff that you created: not your friends, family or the company for which you work. Brick and mortar stores ok to link to if you will ship things to people. We'd like it to be a place where people can buy personal gifts hand-crafted or hand-selected by other MeFites. If you have a question, just ask. Thank you, and best wishes for a peaceful holiday season.

Yay! I'm not seeing a way to edit from that link - is there something I'm missing?

And Crystalline’s shop closed last year. Glad this is back!

Great! I was hoping it would be up again. Thanks!

Jon_Evil's shop is closed, too. I was hoping to get rose chocolates this year. :(

Thanks everyone, we'll try to figure out how to make sure things are more current and we appreciate the updates and the patience.

I've edited the post to reflect how this system actually works, thanks for people's patience. We'll delete no-longer-there shops but will just leave the other ones up until we hear from owners or we find they are 404-ing.

Oh, yay! I was wondering if it was going to be back. Glad to see it has reappeared!

Yes. My wife really enjoyed the vegan chocolates we got last year. The Dalek was a favourite.

To clarify--it is available year-round?

Yay Mall! A plug for How to Instant Pot: I bought it for my boyfriend a year or two ago and it's been a big hit. We just made the lamb and chickpea stew over the weekend and it was delicious.

I think so. Basically usually we take it down sometime after New Years but this year we didn't (i.e. it's been there the whole time, just poorly surfaced) and I think the plan is just to keep it there now. We'll try a few more ways of letting people know it's there.

Pony: Could we add an "I have a shop in the Mall" feature to the profile page, similar to "I fund"?

That's a good idea. We're in a "no dev time" crunch right now but if we can squeeze it in, we will.

It's not listed in the mall - but if anyone is looking for a one-time job of making a custom waxed canvas utility bag please me-mail me
