I like Galleria too.
Some words that might fit either alone or with something else:
Digest
Melange
Vault
Coterie
Suite
I think I suck at this game....I'll watch (and throw my two cents in along the way) ::)

Handmade Picks now that is an idea! Like that one, for me simplicity is good LOL Limited brain power so simplicity is a necessity :D On the other hand you really need to look from a buyers perspective and I think a buyer would know exactly what that means.
Will sit back and watch the rest of the suggestions now.  8)

Kindred Crafts
Grouped Gallery

I think it needs to indicate that it is a group of items with something in common, not simply a gallery of everything.

Universally, artists display their work in a GALLERY.  We as handmade artists should display our work in the same.

I like Galleria as well.  At the community college I went to the arts/humanities wing of the college had a gallery on the main floor and it was always referred to (at least by the art faculty/art majors) as the Galleria.  Besides, galleria just sounds more interesting than simply saying "gallery."

Well it seems to me that we have a whole bunch of wonderful ideas. I think we need to now limit it to say 5 or so. So can everyone go through and pick their top couple. We will then take those and compile a list of 5 or so and add a poll for voting. Sound like a good idea and fair?

When I first saw Galleria (I liked it immediately) sounds Impressive, Authentic, Artistic

Definition for

Galleria: a covered or enclosed area, especially one with commercial establishments for shopping, dining, etc.

Gallery: a room or building for the display or sale of works of art

I know I posted just a few words.... lol   ;)  But Galleria fits!  And Andrew... sound good and fair  ;D

I may be the odd man out, but "galleria" sounds like "mall" to me where "gallery" evokes "art." I hate to add an additional option when we're talking vote, but if anyone's worried that gallery doesn't say "buy this," maybe "shopping gallery" would fit.
