Original Post

I've spent most of the day checking out all sorts of online selling venues and thought I'd share the list I've come up with.

I'm familiar with some of these, others I have no experience with whatsoever.

Some look gorgeous. Some are dog ugly!

But everyone has different needs and if you're looking to branch out and sell in a few different venues, this could be a good place to start:

Love 1000markets, signed up yesterday for the same reason with OP.
very upscale look and easy to use.

I do well on ruby lane. been selling there over 2years.

I opended shops on few other sites including Lollishops but, they are too soon to tell.

Thanks for the HUGE tip!

One could waste considerable time ---is there any way to judge if one venue is "better" than another for one's handcrafted items?
