An International Marketplace

Customers from any country can shop here

Customers can have the freedom to shop from vendors in their own country or around the world!

Vendors from any country can vend in Homesteaders Co-op

Vendors have the freedom to ship to any country they wish. Whether it is just domestically within their own country, to just a few select countries or anywhere internationally!

Shopping Internationally

This is what international shopping looks like on Homesteaders Co-op. We just finished building a new feature that allows shoppers to be able to browse products by country.

There are two options:

  • Browse by country that vendor ships from
    Because you may want to shop for products that ship from your country only.
  • Browse by countries that vendors ship to
    Because you may want to shop for products that ship to your country from anywhere else.

8 Countries and Counting

Homesteaders Co-op has 20 vendors in 8 countries with nearly 150 products accepting STEEM and SBD. Many also accept USD. More vendors are interested to join or are in the process of setting up their stores.

Do you see your country represented below?

If you answer no, we hope you will let your favorite sustainable, handmade, homesteader vendors know that you want to see them in Homesteaders Co-op with their handmade/eco-conscious products for STEEM / SBD / USD!

Introducing Stortebeker, a Contributor to the Homesteaders Co-op

Hey everyone!

I’m David, or as I made myself known on steemit: @stortebeker. I’m here to introduce myself as a contributor to the @homesteaderscoop. What it means to be a contributor, you ask? The way I’d put it is: sharing posts as part of this co-operative with the idea of bringing people together in a community: vendors and buyers, readers and writers, folks who have something in common, and folks who have something others need.

Stumbling Across the Homesteaders Co-op

I came across this co-op only a few days ago. Even though I had been part of the @ghscollective, and other homesteading groups before that, I wasn’t aware of this recently created project. The reason is simple: I was barely on-line these last months. I just completed a three-month-long bike journey, following a six-month-long Earthship building project, during which my connectivity was so sparse that I was happy to publish a post or two in a week (scroll down on my blog if you’re curious about them). But other than that I was barely active on steemit. Now that I’m back home again, I’m seeing all these wonderful projects that have shot out of the ground, most excitingly the Homesteaders Co-op.

The Best Thing for a Coin is Circulation

I’ve always felt that what a currency (crypto or otherwise) needs, is being accepted as a means of exchange. This is why many coins fail, no matter what lofty ideas they represent. So seeing this on-line marketplace, where you can buy and sell stuff for STEEM or SBD, was just like when I first heard about that major on-line retailer for books – and other things was selling gift cards for Bitcoin. Awesome!!! The big difference here, of course, is that the products at the Co-op are all home-made, natural, sustainable, and small scale. Wow, I’m still getting goosebumps just thinking about it.

Let Me Get Behind It!

So I decided to get involved, first by just curating one of their latest articles. Then I delegated some SP to them, even though at the moment I’m still un-delegating what I’d let others use for upvotes while I was gone. But never mind, this is certainly an effort I want to support. Just this morning I had a chat with @sagescrub who asked me if I wanted to contribute to the blog. Most certainly I do, but before I start getting into deeper topics, a few words about myself.

The Facets That Make Me Up:

As I said, I have been involved in homesteading groups since the first day I joined steemit. The topics of sustainability, permaculture, natural building, healthy nutrition, off-grid living, DIY and making things at home, as well as community building have always been close to my heart. Even though I live in a city (one of the biggest, most crowded, and polluted cities in the Americas – Mexico City) I have been practicing aspects of urban homesteading, the ones that are feasible in a small apartment: vermicomposting, mushroom cultivation, making kombucha, kefir and water-kefir, and growing spirulina.

What started out as an experimentation of what is possible soon evolved into a budding business, when I was invited to participate at a newly created producers’ market, selling probiotic drinks. Most beautifully, the connections I’ve made there helped me create various win-win situations, which I wrote about in one of my earlier posts.

And Now Moving on to the Homesteaders Co-op?

So now, it almost seems like the Homesteaders Co-op should be the ideal next step. The question is, how and in which way? My immediate plan is to make my first purchase and gain a direct experience on the shipping fees and times, which has been a bit of a concern for me. Then, I want to get even more involved, by becoming active as a vendor. Sending bottles of kombucha around the world might not be the best idea, however there are some other things I’d like to look into. But let me come back to that.

What I can promise for now, though, is sharing thoughts and ideas, musings and stories, here as part of the co-op. So stay tuned for more post by me, shared under @homesteaderscoop.
