HANDMADE MARKETPLACES: INTRO
There are two primary handmade marketplaces that most people are familair with. The first is Etsy, which is the king of buying or selling handmade or craft items online. The second is Handmade at Amazon, which is a special area of the Amazon website that is dedicated to items by hand. Handmade at Amazon has not experienced the same growth as Etsy, and it has helped fuel rumors that Etsy may be a potential acquisition target for Amazon. That is yet to occur.
Many people like to look for other smaller marketplaces to sell their handmade goods. I have had several people contacting me looking for alternatives to the main handmade marketplaces. I decided to dedicate this post to listing and detailing some of the great handmade marketplaces.
