English website equivalent to Etsy?

@niftyknits - like I said before, they're different markets. I find I've had lots of success with Folksy so far, but who knows, in a year's time I might find that Etsy works better for me...
@Zigetta - what BlueKittyMiniatures said - you have to tell everyone about it - you have to "pimp" - tweet, promote on Facebook, blog...tell your mates...tell everyone you see! I find it's the same with Etsy to a certain extent, there's not really *that* many people who know about Etsy in the UK, although the number is growing. In that respect, Folksy isn't that far behind Etsy; the knowledge of it in the local population is growing.
@nicoledebruin - I tried a coriandr shop, but I didn't put the effort into it that I should have - maybe I should go back to that one too!

I said that earlier because I've found (in my own, not very scientific research...) I get faved for different things here than in Folksy - but then again, I've only been listing here for a week, so who knows what I'll think in a year's time! But then again, I've read people's comments over on Folksy about how they sell stuff here but not over there, or vice versa. I think it might come down to promotion again, and maybe promoting differently for each site; not sure about that one yet.
I've not been found by any mags yet...but I'm still hoping!
