I signed up for bigcartel.com last night and I love it! Thanks for the tip off!

Thanks for the reply. :3 Yes, I have noticed that things go a little slowly on Etsy sometimes. My leashes only sell one a month or so, but it is a nice little boost to my bank account when they do!

I'm not doing personal swaps right now, but if you're interested, go ahead and PM me anyway--maybe we can work it out for later. Smiley

I think this has been discussed before..... but anyway, clothing sellers can do RIDICULOUSLY well on Ebay.  However, it takes a lot of time and effort to cultivate a following. If you want to put in the effort, it may be worthwhile.  Search around and see if items similar to yours are doing well.  If you don't want to put that much effort in or have to have items sell for a certain price, use Etsy.

Whatever shop you open, you have to have a promotion plan in place to direct traffic to the shop. Everything from local contacts to listing on Froogle, starting a blog or lens, running contests, signing up for forums that allow a link to your shop, free web links, and on and on. I say you can do just as well at either place. It's just website space, after all. It's up to you to get people to visit your store, whether it's online or a physical store.

Hi folks, I have recently picked up a load of old computer keyboards, and was advised by someone on craftster that the keys are useful to crafters, but I havent a clue where to sell them, would it be good old ebay, or somewhere different.

apologies if this isnt the forum to ask this question, but it hadnt occured to me to do anything with them, but I figured if I can sell or trade for craft supplies then it has to be good

I posit that if you found a way to drill holes in them (vary between a single hole, or holes that go from side to side like bracelet beads, holes on the diagonal, etc.) they would increase in value to lazy people like me with no power tools or heat-based hole-making implement or whatever it is you use to poke holes in computer keys.

There are also organized swaps for crafting supplies, and general swaps in which you can offer crafting supplies. I am organizing an "offer what you have" ongoing swap here.

You can also list this kind of thing in your signature, in the classified section over there to the right, and on etsy in the "craft supplies" section!  Smiley
