I know that Etsy is great, because everyone knows about it, and checks it, and searches on there, and loves it.

But I just came across Store Envy, checking it out now, does anyone have advice, opinions, do's or don'ts for this place?

I think i'm just excited to try something new.

My only question is, do your potential customers know it exists?

There's NOTHING at a craft show, or on Etsy, anybody NEEDS. NOTHING.

My only question is, do your potential customers know it exists?

I think more sellers know about it than buyers.   I know several sellers who use it to for local sales.  That way their local customers who know of them and what they sell can see what they have for inventory.   So it's a cheap site for them to acquire more local sales without the fee's of having an actual store website or eBay or etsy.

Personally I did the math for one friend and figured it would cost me more to move my site there than to have my own website.   Not including paypal or authorize.net fee's.   So if your looking to drive traffic to your business sites that are more well known such as eBay or etsy might be the better route.  But if you have an established customer base then you could look at a site like storenvy, but it might be cheaper to get your own website.  I'm talking about the cost that storenvy charges to have your own URL domain for your store not their free version.

I make soap and other "cosmetics" as defined by the FDA and in my spare time I sew.... Sewing is therapy for me in dealing with life stresses and my chronic pain.  When I hurt and can't sew, I plan what I want to sew.  I also have a great husband, three kids and three fur kids.....
