unfortunately, in turkey selling your crafts is not that easy and you have to deal with all that paper works and probably you need your own business. try to sell them at craft fairs (i mean the one you can have a table without having a business name) or do consider work with consignment shops from all over the world. the system works like you send your items to the consignment shop and they do the shipping to the customers and they send your money after they sell the work and portion is generally 80:20.

my suggestion is making out a business plan, what you have originally? is it worth to sell, can you make money? people would love to buy it? the main point is being original, choosing everything pleasurly.

e-joya sucks. they are not even crafty!

i wish we had craft fairs like renegade or other independent ones.. until then you are on your own..

destino, I'm seeing this a little late, but you might get some helpful info on selling online, or by consignment or wholesale in Turkey, on this page of my website:
http://www.glassattic.com/polymer/business.htm
(my site deals mostly with polymer clay, but much of the business-type info could easily also relate to any other crafts as well)

And here are a few pages that deal with other aspects of making money from crafts too, if any of them might apply to you:

http://www.glassattic.com/polymer/start_a_business.htm
http://www.glassattic.com/polymer/shows.htm
http://www.glassattic.com/polymer/teaching.htm
http://www.glassattic.com/polymer/photography.htm


Good luck!

Have you looked into EBay?  I haven't tried it, but they do have all kinds of crafts for sale there.

I found another site called Pazaryerim.com.  They look like eJoya, but you might find it helpful.
