Haha Felton, I noticed that too! Funny how things stay relevant!

Janet, many of us weren't here in 2009 including myself. There's a lot of new people on Etsy that didn't read that thread.
eBay and Etsy both have their own values (and problems).

eBay has the "eyeballs", but so many more inherent problems and expenses.

I sell on both venues, but Etsy people are soooooo much nicer!

I'd much rather sell on Etsy, but I'm not about to turn down a sale, whether it be from eBay, Etsy, Bonanza, or my own website.
I'm going to give Ebay a try, can't hurt I guess. I'll just list the items individually. I was looking at their rates to do a *shop* there and they seem a little too expensive for that.
I actually remember this thread on the first go round:)

But still, somethings are just timeless....
and the thoughts go on and on ....
Sell on BOTH...

Are you saying that three-year-old Ebay/Etsy debate is still relevant??? I'll bet I could dig up LOTS of old Ebay threads if you're interested!

: )
Comparing/contrasting the two sites is fine, but there's probably lots more current info is all I'm sayin....

I am thinking of selling on ebay again. I used to think Ebay was more expensive then Etsy but know I am comparing the prices. If you get a basic ebay store it actually costs the same as selling on etsy. I made $100 dollars a month on ebay here I am lucky to sell $100 dollars a month. Either way I feel like I spend more money on fees then I make. But, it is worth another go.
