Lucy’s Country Crafts and Antiques ( is the home of Byers Choice Carolers, one-of-a-kind hand-made dolls crafted by skilled artisans. Byers Choice Carolers are adored by doll collectors around the world, with each Caroler design featuring a unique personality. Lucy’s Country Crafts and Antiques is also the home of Kringle Candle Company, highly-fragrant scented candles made of the highest-quality wax.

Like many businesses, Lucy’s Country Crafts and Antiques left Bigcommerce after 2 years in search of a platform that offered more features for less money. According to Robert from the candle and Caroler company, 3dcart appealed to his business by providing a more user-friendly interface, more options and features, and higher bandwidth. Furthermore, 3dcart seamlessly integrated with his merchant account processor to make for an easy transition.

When asked what he liked best about 3dcart compared to Bigcommerce, Robert said “the service provided in relation to my operating cost improved my bottom line profit and made the whole process much more affordable.”

3dcart couldn’t be happier to have Lucy’s Country Crafts and Antiques as part of our growing community. Feedback like Robert’s is why we continue to work toward improving our platform and services on a daily basis.

“I have been helping my wife get her new business off the ground and was drafted to create her online store. I looked at (and tried) several different solutions in the market before I found 3dCart. I am not a web designer, nor am I a graphic artist so I needed a system that was an simple or complex as I needed it to be. I’m still working away at it and learning a lot so I expect it will get better over time.”

“I am part of the second generation of a family business. My father started our music store in 1970. We never really had much of an e-commerce/web presence. I was becoming increasingly frustrated with the amount of sales we were losing to the Internet. So, I decided to jump in and started Instrument Outfitters-the e-commerce division of our brick and mortar store.
I can’t say enough about how much I love 3dCart’s e-commerce platform. I have tried at least 3 other companies prior to 3dCart and, in my opinion, nothing comes close to the functionality and ease of use.”

” Founded in 1982, EABCO started up as a publisher of computer books.
In 2013, we realized we HAD to have a better shopping cart system. We shopped the IRSCE show and eventually decided on the 3dCart system… It has been fabulous. I feel it has given us the on-line look and feel of bigger companies.”

“Ontario Telescope and Accessories is an online destination for hobbyists and astronomers that are looking for new equipment.  I started this business because I love my hobby and wanted to make it into a business. It has grown into something that I would not have imagined a year ago. Representing international manufactures and bringing them together for other astronomy enthusiasts in my mind is awesome. 3dCart has made it easy to build my business online and reach out to my customers.

“I had to reinvent myself when my my son and daughter came into this world.
In their toddler years, they were diagnosed with Autism.  Becoming involved with my kids education and speech therapy made me realize that reading, communication and solving problems are events that are all around us. That realization became my mindset and ultimately my purpose.
My website allowed me follow through on that purpose by utilizing the skills that many of my past coworkers credited me for being so good at: creating tutorials and how-to guides. The transition from a Computer Science grad with a job title and a paycheck consuming other peoples’ content to a Small Business Owner with a purpose creating my own was an odyssey, a 25-year odyssey.
Thank you, 3dCart, for the bridge to help me make that transition possible!”

I also have another business called ‘Cacheme if you can’ which specialises in Geocaching products. Again this is a startup business which I started about 4-5 months again.

15 Beautifully Designed 3dcart Stores to Envy & Emulate

HPBlog 1024x696 15 Beautifully Designed 3dcart Stores to Envy & Emulate

The land of eCommerce is a superficial place. Online shoppers are quick to pass judgment based on half-minute glimpses, and if they aren’t impressed by a store from the start, they’ll likely bounce without buying and never return. Knowing this has made the creation of a beautiful, streamlined website crucial for success, and if you’re committed to being successful, your online store better be pretty.

The following 15 3dcart sites act as shining examples of web designs to both envy and emulate. Each embodies unique qualities and characteristics while also showcasing the incredible power and versatility of 3dcart’s robust eCommerce software.

Merchant Spotlight: Gabe’s Chemo Duck


Gabes Chemo Duck Merchant Spotlight: Gabes Chemo DuckFounded by Lu Sipos after her son Gabe was diagnosed with cancer, this non-profit organization provides support for children and families living with cancer through the Chemo Duck – a plush companion that is designed to alleviate fear and anxiety in childhood cancer patients.

The cuddly Chemo Duck comes dressed in hospital scrubs and a bandanna and either a Hickman or port-a-cath style chemotherapy port. Developed with the help of child life specialists and medical professionals, the Chemo Duck Program helps introduce children and families to their new life and encourages healing through the power of play therapy.

Adopt a Chemo Duck Hickman Style 300x274 Merchant Spotlight: Gabes Chemo Duck

The Chemo Duck store offers individuals and businesses the opportunity to provide a child (or many children) with a Chemo Duck of their own or donate ducks to hospitals participating in the program. Once a duck is purchased, the child can visit the Chemo Duck website, register their new friend and print out an official adoption certificate as well as other fun activities.

“When someone does something this wonderful for children, we need to do our part to help spread the word”, said Joe Palko from 3dcart, Chemo Duck’s e-commerce webhosting provide provider. 3dcart is pleased to have Gabe’s Chemo Duck Program as one of the tens of thousands of online stores powered by our eCommerce shopping cart software.

“We hear from parents every day about how Chemo Duck is helping their children get through this difficult time and that response is what drove us to turn to the Internet to make our ducks available anywhere they’re needed,” said Russ Roberts of Get it Guru, the webmaster of Gabe’s Chemo Duck Program. “By choosing 3dcart as our eCommerce provider we made it easy for parents, caregivers and hospitals to order Chemo Ducks and we have a website that’s easy to maintain and process orders from.”

By making Chemo Ducks available for purchase online the organization’s goal of making this therapeutic tool more widely available was easily accomplished. Now, a greater number of hospital staff and parents can prepare children for chemotherapy treatment and eliminate the fear of the unknown.

The Chemo Duck Store ( features two styles of Chemo Ducks as well as t-shirts, DVDs, books, backpacks and the Huggable Hope Duck which is the same model as the Chemo Duck but doesn’t include any of the medical teaching tools.

For more information on the Chemo Duck Program, visit the organization’s website at
