How it works!

How it works is, we run this online virtual market bringing traffic to your work. Each month has a different theme. We rent out a virtual table to you for a monthly fee and then link your vitual table items back to your online shop (etsy for example). All monies are between you and the buyer - we just do the one time table rental fee. You can add/change items all month long as much as you wish. The info on the fees is here.

You can read other participants testimonials here and our press here.

New PHM Pricing!

We are please to offer a new pricing scale for the PHM markets. Many participants have been returning to the market and in some cases have been with us from the beginning. As we first began the market we priced it as if it were an ad space on our blog with extra perks (a table!) And now that many are returning, we'd like to offer a discount as follows:

First month - $60
If you return for a second month and each month after - $50
If you return (with advance notice) for three consecutive months - $135

Please pass this info on to any one you think may benefit or would be interested in participating, thank you!


If you are a group/shop and or/collective we will accept you, however the price changes depending on the number of people involved. please email poppytalkblog(AT)yahoo(DOT)ca for details.
