Online sales for Palestinian woodworkers

Help me help my friends sell their Palestinian olive wood carvings from Bethlehem, West Bank, via the internet.

My friends make hand-made olive-wood crafts. They are interested in selling their products over the internet. They're familiar with Ebay Stores - but they're interested in websites that specialize in selling handmade goods - wood crafts - religious items - items from developing countries or that support families in depressed areas of the world. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Best answer: If you haven't already, you should drop by the local offices of Catholic Relief Services and find out what needs to be done to get into their catalog. It goes to about 200,000 people and 50,000 churches in the US and Canada.
