Where can I find more Omaha makers online?

When I made this list, I did not mean to overlook the literal hundreds of other makers in the Omaha metro area. Some makers don’t necessarily have an online store of their own, but you can find them in local collectives. Sometimes they’ll have in-person open houses, but currently, most will be online:

Omaha Art Collectives Online

Bench – Located just north of downtown Omaha, Bench is a co-work space for makers and builders. If you’re looking for handmade furniture, definitely check here.

Known for their great in-person trunk shows, due to the pandemic, the collective held their last event online. Time will tell if the next one will be virtual or in person.

Hot Shops Art Center – I miss Hot Shops’ annual open houses. The building has several floors of artist studios and it’s the best time to see their work and meet the artists. And the winter one is prime holiday shopping.

If you want an online option, head to the artists page on the website. Click on a bio to see if the artist has an online shop – several do!

Made in Omaha – I love shopping Made In Omaha in-person (now with a location in Countryside Village AND the Old Market). Luckily, you can shop for all of the awesome items online.

Support creative makers and artists by buying their products online! This list features Omaha makers in particular. From woven goods to earrings, and woodwork to toys, Omaha's creative community makes it.
