Considering selling on one or the other...

How do these compare, both to each other and to a website of your own?

I am interested to hear about any of your experiences with ost, fees, convenience...

I am on Etsy.com, I like it. In my mind ebay is where you can buy anything at cheap, kinda like a garage sale. Etsy is like a craft show, where you know things will be handmade and priced higher, good quality.

There are so many different varieties of items on etsy that are all made, or vintage. Are you looking to sell? I just started and posted, but no sales yet. I got great feedback from a lady who gave me some great advice, and suggested I joined the local team. I found everyone to be supportive.

Hope that helps.

i can't really say an opinion from a seller's point of view but i can comment from the view of the consumer, as i have bought from both sites.

Etsy is definitely what i would consider to be the higher end of the two.  I feel like when I'm searching Etsy, i'm getting more of a personal touch.  Handmade, customizable, one of a kind, exclusive, and that appeals to me.  Ebay i feel is too abused for mass distribution, i have a harder time trusting that what i see is what i'm getting.  and depending of whether what you buy is through auction or store, the chances of price fluctuations is a little off putting.  With Etsy i feel like i'm supporting more independent artists whose products have real value rather than people looking to make quick buck.

just my two cents...
