Default Selling quilted items online

Has anyone found a great online site for selling handmade quilted items? Particularly other than Etsy.

Not much help here--EBay and Etsy are the only ones I know about.

IOffER is a site where they pre price there items but you can also make an offer .I've purchased fabrics on this site before but didn't look for finished quilts Is worth a try . Just put IOFFER on your search bar & check it out .

You certainly want to be safe with receiving your payment for the item. I myself wouldn't feel safe with selling anything on Craigslist because buyers are looking for bargains.

There are more and more places every day it seems.

These are three well established, well known, highly rated sites.
http://www.artfire.com/
http://bigcartel.com/
http://www.bonanza.com/etsy_alternat...FWIV7AodQBQAXg

Another well known site is
http://www.shopify.com/

Listings of places are here (and there are other lists like these):
http://www.craftbizblog.com/etsy-26-...crafts-online/
http://www.pcworld.com/article/25569...ade_goods.html

Also look within your state for in-state made craft selling sites. New Hampshire, for instance, now has several well promoted sites for our home state artisans and businesses.

Selling online will always take a lot of work and strong marketing in order to make it worthwhile. It's not just sitting around waiting for buyers to 'discover' you, so be prepared for that no matter where you sell.

I just listened to a podcast where the podcaster sold a bunch of fabric on instagram. The podcaster is Allison Rosen, Within a Quarter Inch. She had a whole podcast on how she did it, what hashtags, how to package and ship, how to get paid. I don't see why it couldn't work for finished items. She sold a lot of her fabric.
