The Unknown Emporium


The Unknown Emporium is a platform to showcase the works of creative people, such as art, clothing and crafts and allow them to sell directly to the public. Users of the platform have full control of their shop and product details which can be edited through the easy to user subscriber account area.

They offer our shop owners the choice between a low monthly subscription, or a low commission off each item sold with no listing fees with free trials available for new or specially chosen customers.

The team at Developing The Web provided both design and development solutions to solve the requirements of the client. The website is a custom built Etsy clone powered by Laravel 5.




We were very lucky to have found Mark Stockton through DTW because without him it is unlikely The Unknown Emporium would have been possible. The combination of his knowledge, experience and enthusiasm made a collection of ideas and artists into a fully functional online marketplace. Fully committed to the concept and the commission, we would recommend Mark to any businesses that want a website based around efficiency, intelligent design and ease of use. Matt, TUE
