You know, I hadn't even heard of it. I'll do some research and it sounds like something I may be interested in. (I'll use your link for sure if I do it.)
I guess the more places your things are listed the better, right? I just wonder if it'd be worth the time/money (Even though $7 isn't much, if nothing sells it's a loss.) or how much traffic it gets.
hmmm. Things to think about.


I just read this blog about Artfire: http://u-handbag.typepad.com/uhandblog/2009/03/artfire-a-lower-cost-serious-contender-to-etsy.html


I just joined with the free option. I was able to list more than 4 items. It seems okay, we'll see....


I hadn't heard of it yet Jessi. If I were to join though, I'd certainly use you as my referrer! Hopefully you'll get the 10 and not even have to worry about it!


I've set up an artfire account. So far, traffic is lower than my etsy shop, but I've had 7 sales. Artfire is only about 6 months old, and has grown leaps and bounds since inception. I've been extremely happy with the amount of enhancements the site has rolled out, including Rapid Cart, a widget you can install on your blog to sell your items. Using Rapid Cart (which is free to verified sellers) your buyers don't need an Artfire account to purchase your stuff. Very cool. The Artfire admin team is extremely responsive as well. I like it there. :-)

A while back, AF's president, John, was interviewed for my blog. You can find the interview here http://shinyadornments.com/wordpress/?p=243

I've also put together a list of sites to sell your handmade items here
http://shinyadornments.com/wordpress/?p=205 if you are interested.

Good luck with your AF site.
The Simply Shiny Blog


Looks interesting. I may have to give it a try!
