Visit my Etsy store for unique gifts and accessories!

Sunday, September 9, 2012


I've been hearing a lot about ArtFire. I see their ads on Facebook and I've heard about them in the Etsy forums. I decided to take the plunge. I now have a store on ArtFire.

Right now I have some of the same items that you can find on Etsy. I'm still feeling my way around to see if there are items that would do better on one site or the other. I'm also considering making one site the place to go for custom orders and the other for items that are in-stock, but it's all too new to decide anything right now.

For now, I'm working on creating more items for the upcoming craft shows (I have 8 lined up!) and keeping my stores (plural -- woot!) in stock. Once I get a little more time in both places, I'll be able to decide if one is better for a particular item (purses vs. jewelry, for instance) or if one is better for custom work (which is what I'm leaning towards.)

Do any of you use both ArtFire and Etsy? Have you chooses one over the other? I would love to get your thoughts on this and get a discussion going in the comments. Looking forward to hearing from you.

Happy crafting!
