What was your first connection to music? Do you remember? Most do… some of our earliest memories are intertwined with the magic of music; it can either make you forget… or remember. Just like that.
And that’s why we built this platform. It’s a database for the music lovers and we’re the merchandise matchmakers.
🎸How many times have you gone to a show and the next day realized you forgot to purchase the shirt?
🎸Wish you could relive those moments from your past with a bit of memorabilia?
🎸Want to decorate your home with the best silk-screen concert posters around?
🎸Did you lose your pins or patches from the 80’s and want to show your kids just how cool you really were (are)?
🎸Do you simply want to upgrade your wardrobe?
We’ve got you. Listen, there’s web shops and auction sites out there but they are not like us. They are insanely priced and they aren’t about you, the true fan.
WE are a fan platform designed by fans for fans…
Our mission is to catalogue music in the right way, and with your help, we can do just that. We have a passion for music and band merch, and by creating a dedicated space for music addicts, we can bring fans together.
This is also why Merchin is free and open to all users. We invite you to contribute, search, find, compare, trade and most of all, enjoy the music merch we love so much.
Merchin Marketplace connects merch sellers and buyers across the globe. No matter if you are an artist, record label representative, festival organiser or a fan, you can trade any music merch via Merchin Marketplace.
From pins to patches, t-shirts to posters, and everything in between, Merchin is the premier platform for band memorabilia.
Because the Marketplace is linked to the ever evolving Merchin catalogue, it is easy for sellers to list their inventory and buyers are able to specify the exact version they want.
