"I am in agreement with both of you. I maintain my Bonanza Booth but sales there are not very good. I do occasionally use Ebay but there, too, not really good sales. My Etsy shop, now going on my second full year, has progressively…"
I have about the same number of vintage jewelry items listed on eBay, Etsy and Bonanza (around 500 in each shop). My number of items sold each month are around 50, 35 and 5 respectively. These numbers may be a bit skewed due to…"
"Thanks for the input, very helpful. I'm very much wanting to leave Etsy and have a shop on a site where shop owners are treated respectfully. I'm trying to figure out how to import my items over to Artfire from Etsy and Bonanza. Are you…"

I miss my old FB, so, I am back to good ole Twitter.

Any chance you…"
"Hi, my sales are better on Artfire now than Etsy. It was Etsy for awhile, and now Artfire is better for me. I have added Propay and had two sale in a row with them, and now one with Paypal. Three in last week, one 3 items. I find that my…"
"I love my Artfire shop. I have noticed than when I list an item it get more hits here than Etsy. I do have an Etsy shop too. Sales are picking up, and slowing down on Etsy. I have about 200 items on each. I feel Artfire is so much more user…"
"Things have been really slow for me since August, but what Karen said is accurate: Artfire is a great site, and I believe in them and have faith that things will pick up there.
