If you hope to go big, you may also want your own site that distinguishes you as a separate business and to post your associated name. This can then be linked to the posts on the aforementioned crafting sites to advertise and sell from.

Does anyone want to sell their craft items? Please let me know of other craft related places where you can sell or buy craft items.

Etsy.com is the only one I can think of.
I am interested in selling my craft items. May I know on which sites I can sell them? Also, I am interested to take class for doll making and craft class for children and ladies (i.e) who want some knowledge of arts items and tanjore paintings and all type of paintings. Can you please give me an idea?

I would like to sell my windows online. Should I create a store or website? Please let me know how to go about it.
Why not load a photo of each with a freebie listing in Craigs' List or Kjiji? Find out what your buying attraction is before paying to sell.
I have the worlds largest tuna fish, hand crafted using gathered sticks and tree bark. Where can I post it and where can I sell it? Any ideas would be appreciated. Thank you.
Etsy.com would be good bet - it's supported by and for crafters and artisans.
Does anyone sell homemade items online? If so, I need some advice from you. I need to supplement my low income and want to sell online, but don't know how to go about it. Is there a book for beginners or just some advice you can give me as to the cheapest way to get started? I don't have any money to invest in the business. Do I have to sign up for a domain name, or website creation? Does that come free with sites like Etsy? I am in the dark here. Any help would be appreciated.

Yes, Etsy is my choice of online venues. Other venues have not held the mark like Etsy, but it is a lot of work, an investment in time and listing fees, plus Etsy takes a cut when you sell.
I think you would be better off checking out online surveys. They pay and if you did this every day it could supplement your income. Clark howard.com and kim komando.com both have great suggestions on their websites for what online jobs work and which to stay away from. If you are a supply seller or vintage seller you might give Etsy.com a go.
Supplies sell really well on Etsy. I hope you find what you are looking for. The handmade movement is taking a firm hold on the online market right now.
Does any one have any ideas or suggestions about how to sell my crafts online? I don't want to use eBay.
Thanks for your help.

You can set up your own website for free, I have seen other web spots on there where people sell their products. Good luck. Let us know what you use so we can check it out. (07/17/2006)
Where can I sell my crafts online besides Etsy, and eBay?
By Monique R. from Creighton, SK
artfire.com (more like etsy)
I feel like I know about a couple other places, but can't think of them right now.
Best of luck. I've kept my etsy shop empty for the past year or so, just too busy with my daughter and life. I found out one of my good friends officially closed her etsy shop over the summer. She said sales were down dramatically in the last year. I think about re-photographing and starting to list items again, but I'm just so busy volunteering at school and I'm not comfortable with our new camera. Sometime I'll get around to it! Hope you find the right venue(s) and you have lots of sales. (10/09/2009)
