Can a seller have more than one Artisan’s Loft store?

As we continue to grow, we get a lot of great feedback from our sellers. One seller recently asked if they were allowed to have more than one store. The answer is yes. Artisan’s Loft is not subjected to being run by investors, is not a publicly traded company, and is happy to be a seller friendly community. As such, we realize many Artisans are not just good at one thing. They’re good at many, some of which can be profitable. If you multiple businesses you run and want to keep them separate, all you have to do is create a separate account with a separate email address to build each individual loft.
