Online retail giant Amazon has announced the expansion of Handmade at Amazon offer into the UK and Europe.

Handmade at Amazon, which specialises in hand crafted items including furniture and homewares, will now be sold directly to the UK, Germany, France, Italy, and Spain, offering Europe more than 30,000 items across the marketplace.

Since the launch of Handmade at Amazon in the U.S. less than a year ago, Amazon’s selection of quality handcrafted products has grown to include more than 500,000 items from all 50 states and over 80 countries around the world.

Steve Johnson, director at Amazon, said: “With our focus on genuine handcrafted products, the Handmade at Amazon store has been a big hit with artisans and customers in the U.S. and we’re encouraged by the strong growth of sales and customer traffic.

“Amazon has become a one-stop shop for holiday gifting, and this year customers will see hundreds of thousands more handmade items, with thousands eligible for Prime two-day shipping.”
