I decided to take advantage of a small 10 item shop over at Artfire. I created a handful of things for the new shop that I'll be posting for sale later today. I hope it does well. I just wasn't happy with the lack of action over at 1000 Markets, it's too bad really. Such a pretty website. Although I probably should just update it more and maybe it would eventually happen. I wonder if the Amazon payments thing scared everyone off. Can't use Paypal there. Maybe that's the problem.
Whatever it was, it was depressing, only had one sale since I started. I've slowly just been moving the jewelry from 1000 markets, to Etsy, where I have much better luck.
So far, I was quite impressed with how easy it was to create a storefront. I was able to use my own pre-made banner and avatar, but unfortunately only had a few options for colors in background. But I don't mind charcoal, it goes well with my banner.
Listing items seems a bit less cumbersome than Etsy, where you do all the descriptions, shipping, and pictures all on the same page. You can add up to 4 pictures for each listing.
The best part of Artfire is, it's free to list items!
Wish me luck!
