It would be great if we really had a European etsy - mainly for shipping purposes. Does anyone know of something similar that is really successful?

You can buy from the UK if you visit Folksy.com and there is also Dawanda in Germany.

There are handmade marketplaces in Europe, as Glassprimitif has said - whether they could really be called equivalent to Etsy is another matter. And there are bajillions of Etsy members in Europe you can buy from and sell to - just use the 'shop local' feature. :)

Great thanks! Had no idea Dawanda was in Germany - that's cool. Are any of them as big and successful as Etsy?

Dawanda is the biggest - it has german french & english versions - for best results you should list in all 3 languages, but you can list in just one language if you prefer

Folksy is only open to UK sellers but worldwide buyers

I just registered on Folksy but then realised that it is only open to UK sellers. That sucks !
