    Zibbet is another option-you can list up to 50 items for free-just pay paypal fees.Etsy changed their system and you no longer need to renew all the time to be found in searches.

    Ghostrider and Lyrajean, those are the same reasons I've listed on artfire instead of etsy. There is another site, www.ecrater.com but I don't know much about it. I can't say that I've had tons of success but I haven't really promoted my site or listed that many items on it. Best of luck!

    Big Cartel is another one for those who are looking.
    The Earth without art is just "Eh".

    I sell only locally at craft shows and have always been interested in online selling but it seems kind of overwhelming. I hope it goes well for you.

    Isn't it exciting that even as we've moved into the age of the internet, there are increasing opportunities for selling & making & sharing our "crafts", and they're becoming a larger & larger market?

    well I just checked Artfire and see it is $12 a month. I guess if you have a lot of listings it would be worth it, I have less than 10 on etsy, at 20 cents each for 4 months it is more economical for me on Etsy.

    Have been considering this also. Has anyone tried Craigs List, or is that just too risky?

    I guess the bottom line is - are you successfully selling on the various sites? If it costs less to list, but you're not selling, that's not good. If it costs more and you're not selling, that's not good either. I haven't read anything yet about how well the sales are doing at any of the sites, and to me, that's the critical information for making a decision.

    I have been an Etsy seller for 3 years. They have changed some things and my sales are very good this Christmas season. Both inexpensive unique hot pads , fabric paper doll sets(under $15) and more expensive quilted runners and wall quilts have been selling. I am in a lot of circles and try to have new items almost daily to keep my shop fresh.(it gets people to visit my shop). I do have several repeat customers who also have requested custom items. The 20 cent listing fee is cheap enough, even if an item doesn't sell.

    I don't think people shop on Craigslist for beautiful handmade items.
