She began as a hobbyist, creating jewelry that she thought was ‘cool and edgy and not so girly’. Later she realised there was a hole in the market for high quality handmade jewelry and decided to grow her hobby into a full-time business.
The first screen of the website shows us impressive high-quality photos in the slider and the newest products. The second slider, at the bottom, is an Instagram feed – catch a glimpse of what inspires Corrine and what goes on behind the scenes.
Greats.com is website with the example of how the homepage should look like. It did a great job designing that door: white backgrounds, lots of whitespace, slider and simple navigation make the site easy to browse and buy from.

The website looks really interesting, it’s almost like it was created by a child (or at least some ideas were). Everything seems to be in its place: all product categories are on the left side and the menu buttons at the top. The color scheme is not distracting.
When making your order for a customized item, you can choose from a number of different options, so that the kid picture will resemble your child as much a possible!
11. Dodo Case
Dodo Case is an online shop where you can purchase lots of craft stuff that is quite popular these days. Their top priority are cases and accessories for iDevices – iPads, iPhones, iMac, as well as other staff like wallets and keyrings.
If your business is all about selling handcrafted accessories, you will definitely need an interesting design and that’s what Dodocase puts an emphasis on. In a nutshell,, it has a sleek design which looks good, but, unfortunately, this can be said only about their home page.
Pages with products are less exciting, but perhaps this was done on purpose to make visitors focus on the items. Speaking about the visuals, there are no full-screen images, which is very odd. While exploring the website, you can say that everything is ok, but still there’s a feeling that something is missing.
12. Fiercely Curious
Fiercely Curious is a platform created by Erin & Tom who are the Brooklyn artists. It’s a curated collective of over 20 Brooklyn-based artists hand-picked by Erin & Tom. They showcase their work online, at pop-up shows and through private studio visits. Basically, their website is a mix of an art-gallery and an online store with designer-made items.
You can view images in full and it’s good that they have a slider option on board. More often than not, creative professionals come up with astonishing ideas in terms of designs for their websites, but fail to think through the functional side.I Fiercely Curious is not an exception.
Their menu could be more structured and user-friendly, while the shopping cart could let you continue to explore the items, instead of pushing you into buying something immediately after you press the add button.
13. Faucet face
Faucet face is a website about the idea that tap water is in no way inferior to the bottled.. How do they prove it? They produce glass bottles and provide BioSand filters for poor families in India. It’s something we could all admire and take for a model.
To tell the truth, it took me a while to realize, what they are actually doing because of the overwhelming information. Yes, founders of the website have used the the website builder’s tools to their full potential, but the whole thing looks raw.
Although the white-and-blue color scheme is visually pleasing, the interface is cluttered and you don’t know where to start and what to use first. Nice idea but the realization is far from perfect.
14. Walk in Love
Walk in Love is a high-quality store that knows how to drive the attention of customers. The online shop was launched in 2005 and is dedicated to selling well-designed, high quality t-shirts with a positive and inspiring message.

The company produces tailor-made accessories, pads, and pieces of furniture to create an appropriate working environment either at the office or at home. Visitors can find different types of laptop and mouse pads, stands for monitors or headphones, etc.
Website creators made the most of all features brought to them by Shopify. It was divided into two major sections. The first section is actually a shop itself with the list of products, categories, etc. Product pages look very engaging while each item comes with featured accessories. The shop has a separate “Best Selling” page with the most popular positions available on stock.
The second “Explore” section tells about the Grovemade community and approach. What we liked about the website is the homepage. Apart from traditional product categories listed, here we can see a video block with a very engaging story about how the products are produced. In addition, visitors can see the full Grovemade.com squad in the team block below.
17. Charlotte Russe
Charlotte Russe is a website, which proves that using Shopify does not require special skills. And you still can come up with a stylish and engaging webshop. The store is focused on selling clothes and accessories to men and women. Nothing special here. Moreover, the website uses some baseline Shopify features without diving deep into the customization process. Nevertheless, the website makes a good impression.
The main attention is paid to sales, discounts, and special offers. This is where Shopify is probably the best offer among other eCommerce platforms. A typical menu makes it easy to overview all product categories and jump into the one you need without scrolling down numerous sections. There is a simple language switcher in addition to addressing, account, and shopping cart icons. A simple Sign Up form and social media widgets make this simple and at the same time catchy store look finished.
18. Hard Graf
Hard Graf is another online shop built with Shopify. It sells handcrafted products made of leather. The list of items includes exclusive handbags, men’s footwear, gloves, accessories, etc. Visitors may also buy cases for different mobile devices in addition to authentic wallets, pads, and more. What we did not like about the website is the homepage. A sticky main menu looks a bit strange while the category navigation is hard to find from the start.
But the product pages look awesome. Here we have a catchy image gallery with high-quality product images. Users may choose from several sections that include item details such as size charts, materials used in production, additional details.
There is a simple contacting widget that lets visitors ask questions directly or look for an answer in the knowledgebase. Worldwide delivery is another benefit in favor of Hard Graft.

Today, it delivers other products and accessories to the whole family. Visitors can by frozen treats, drinkware, cocktail ingredients or ice that will be delivered right at your door.

The second block displays three major info blocks. The third section offers a simple way to stay in touch or connect to the social channels. Product pages look great featuring huge photos, 5-star ratings, and simple filters to make the product search even easier.

Chalkd is a digital store that sells handmade products of wood and other materials. They can be used at home or wedding décor. They include chalkboards of different sizes and shapes, table menus that can be met at pubs or restaurants, markers and pastel chalks to write on the board. The company has been on the market for a while. This fact is reflected in its website, which looks a bit out of date.
Visitors should not expect 3D visual effects or animation when scrolling down the page. Everything looks very simple and a bit dated. You feel like you got to an old-school online shop back from the beginning of the 2000s. On the other hand, the shop structure is easy to navigate. All products are thoughtfully divided into categories while the product pages contain product details. The checkout process is simple as well. There is also a shipping calculator feature. All you need is to set the region and country in the for provided.
