While Etsy is the most popular site to show and sell your indie crafts online, simply setting up an Etsy shop for your handmade items will seldom generate enough revenue to make a full time income. Etsy does have a wonderful community but it’s also easy for artists to get lost in the crowd on Etsy. With the announcement of the recent changes on Etsy ‘s policies, I recommend you also pick a few of the smaller online venues where you aren’t such a small fish in the huge market and where you won’t likely be listing alongside mass produced goods. This list is strictly a directory and not an endorsement.
Put your email in the box to the right of this post and then check your inbox for more than 70 great sites to sell your crafts online. In addition to US-based sites, you’ll also find a separate directory of UK, EU and AU sites.
I recommend you spend some time perusing each site and choose a few that feature products complimentary to those you make. I would love to hear if you’ve found other sites you’d like to share with your fellow artisans.
