Sell Your Crafts - List of Online Selling Venues by Dionne Samone

There are so many places online to sell your crafts. The problem is you either don't know what they are, who they are, or more importantly where they are. I've compiled a list of just a handful. I hope these help you on your journey to being a successful crafter AND seller. I'm on a few of these, but I will make no claims as to which are best for you.

I've also included their alexa rank. That should at least help you as to what kind of traffic each site receives. They are listed in random order, but I did do Etsy first because I believe this is the best site for handmade goods. Good Luck!
