I like Shop Handmade simply because it is very proactive as far as the environment goes. Not hard to list on once you get used to the interface either. And its free to list. I may keep this one simply because its free to list and free to sell, plus I can donate a quarter for each item I sell and help save the rainforest. Doesn't get better than that.
I was pretty excited about Handmade Fuzion at first, the site is very clean looking and it has some good stats also. However the listing fee is .15 (which I really don't have a problem with) but if you want to get any hits at all you have to also pay .50 for front page exposure. So now its .65 to list instead of .15 or no one looks are your items. That is a bit steep for me and could rapidly become a fairly large bill. If I don't get some sales from this venue fairly regularly by February it will most likely be taken down.
Artfire is free to list and free to sell but I am not sure how buyers find your products. I am currently paying $7 a month for the upgraded shop which does have awesome stats. I was told that this would also give me additional exposure. We will see how it goes.
I am not closing my etsy shop, I have invested way too much time in it at this point but I will not be listing new items as often as I am being completely buried. I am adding all of my new product to my 1000Markets shop at this point and will most likely spend a good bit of my energy on that. More to come on how that site works later. I have several more that I am aslo using that are also under review but I won't go into that now.

I am also having a $1.00 off any stitch marker set in my silverriverstitches.etsy.com shop. If you know any knitters this is an excellant, affordable gift. Everything in this shop is $10 or less already so with the $1.00 off nothing is more than $9.
Happy Holidays and have fun shopping!

A ShopHandmade-sponsored forest fills yet another patch of scorched earth...
ShopHandmade has just donated enough money to the Trees for the Future foundation to plant a total of 10,000 trees. One tree for each product listed on the site.
You are doing your part by shopping at our environmentally-aware handmade stores. Continue to support the Earth and support handmade crafts. Heck, forget all the good stuff and just come and window-shop. It's an entertaining visit and you just might fall in love with something!
I will continue to list some of my jewelry on this site so if you would like to purchase something and do something good for the environment please check out my shop there. I am slowly adding inventory. Just click on the link --> Silver River Jewelry
