Amazon-free shopping (for Europe)

This is a list of places where I like to buy (or would like to buy) my stuff, now that I try never to rely on Amazon and that I also avoid large corporate conglomerates.

The 👑 emoji means that there is a lifetime or similar long-term warranty on the products.

Books

Beauty & hygiene

Clothes & accessories

Electronics

  • Commown (France) 👑 headphones, computers (laptop or desktop) & Fairphone smartphones. You pay monthly and it includes repairs & replacements whenever needed.
  • Fairphone smartphone (5-year warranty and designed for easy repair)

Furniture & home decor

Other

General: gifts, small things…

  • The classic, Etsy. You should look for sellers in your country to keep shipping costs (and pollution) low.
  • Uncommon Goods is aggressively gendered but has some cute stuff

  1. @alexture For ebooks I use ebooks.com, it seems to be independantly owned and the few books I bough here were DRM-free, although I saw they sell some ebooks with DRM too.

  2. @HCyclop ooo merci j’ai ajouté ! je t’ai pas crédité comme j’étais pas sûr que tu voulais ton nom là et que ton compte est privé, mais dis-moi si tu souhaites que je te mentionne dans le changelog !
