I have been slowly moving my jewelry from my Etsy shop to my Handmade Artists' Shop. At least for me (and it seems many others), Etsy hasn't been so great lately for selling. Especially jewelry. The site is so saturated with resellers who offer things so cheap it's hard to compete. They also have a mass amount of vintage and commercial stuff. I don't have anything against this stuff, but on a site that is supposed to be for handmade, it's getting harder and harder to find it. I personally think that Etsy needs to break up into separate venues for these major categories. Fixes aren't working properly and the forum is now a bunch of "teams" that you have to join in order to comment. That is NOT a forum, it's a club. Suffice it to say that I am not happy there anymore.
I listed this set last night in my new HAFshop. It was not in my Etsy shop. My views have been phenomenal already and that makes me happy.
affordable and once you list, you're done. No relisting! No hidden fees! Handmade ONLY! There is no bulk listing on purpose. That way no one person or shop will overwhelm the front page with their product and the chances of a reseller slipping in and bulk listing is next to none.
What it boils down to is, if you're not happy with where you are and you have handmade, give the HAFshops a try. I am confident that you will be as happy with them as I am.
