Right now I like www.dawanda.com. They are still working hard on the site and really take users' ideas into consideration. I hope they will lower their commission, but right now, listing is free.

My main reason against Etsy is the price dumping - things sell for nothing there... and I just don't want to go that road.

Soaps, I remember reading your farewell on the etsy forums.  Sorry to hear it didn't work out for you.

I have been successful there but I am only comparing it to ebay.  It is 1000 times better than ebay for me. 

I agree, it is flooded with bath stuff.  Also, some people are practically giving their items away.
I started out with my prices too low too but have raised them to a decent retail price and am still selling.
I'll admit though that I always have my feelers out for other sites...

i have looked at etsy and ebay because I was not aware there were any other sites to sell my crafts on. What are some other sites that have good reviews? I wasn't too impressed with the fees on ebay or etsy. Honestly, it took me a while to find anything interesting on etsy because there is so much on there.I figured it was just populr with people here.

What kinda online shop would be good for a beginning seller?

Exactly. If someone wants to sell their stuff at a loss they can contact a business liquidator and the inventory is sold at open public auction. If someone is truly concerned about putting out good high quality merchandise and selling it for appropriate prices, they want to find a venue to do that and not have to think of working with the bottomfeeders - both liquidators or "dollar store" customers. Is Etsy really pretty much a site where people dump the stuff they think is worth ''less''?

5.  A severe lack of nice people in the forums.  I can barely stand to go there anymore.

That's my main issue right now. I rarely post on the forums, but the other day I made a post asking for some advice one one of the site guidelines that I didn't understand and I got CRUCIFIED by the people there. There is absolutely no respect or crafterly love there. I don't think I'll ever use the Etsy forums again.

^My problem is being resolved now with help from the Etsy team. It was an issue about another seller copying my products. When I asked for advice about it on Etsy I was careful not to give any details about who the seller was, but everyone jumped on me saying I was "calling out" another user because they had decided to do their own digging and figure out who it was on their own, without any help from me. Some even made me out to be the bad guy, suggesting that I was the one who copied from her. Ugh.
