I'm Trying A Couple of New Things

I haven't been selling much on Etsy and so I decided to give ArtFire a try. I feel kind of like I'm cheating on Etsy, but I'm not leaving her. There are some advantages to ArtFire. There is lots of free advertising and no fees for the basic account. I'm really excited to see how things go over there. So on my side bar you can see the new things I just put in my ArtFire Shop and I also have a new blog that is a central location showing all of my items for sell.

Tell me what you think!

Sherry, good luck with your Artfire shop. I checked it out and I think it looks great! I especially liked that there's a picture of you there. I am looking forward to seeing you this Saturday for the Wizard of Oz Gala! Twyla

Oooooh!!! How fun. I like how you have two different types of art in seperate sites, keeping both Etsy and Art fire. Good luck. Great way to get noticed. I know it's hard to be seen with so many Etsy's out there. Love your scalloped edged buttons, adorable. Lisa

I know a few people who rave about selling on ArtFire...they like it better than etsy. If I ever get enough inventory to start a shop (ahem) I will probably try both for a while........
