I find that the tools Artfire provides its sellers (even at a basic and FREE account) are easier to navigate then Etsy. Pro accounts have it best but if you cant afford it or want to wait for sales the basic account is just fine.
Right now Artfire is doing a promotion (which I have signed both my shops up for) on Pro accounts for only $5.95 a month! Unlimited listings and use of ALL tools they provide. SO worth it!
The group deal goes live 10/01/10. After that regular prices go back into effect so pro account prices will go back up!
One of my favorite tools on Artfire so far is the ability to make collections! I love coming up with a theme and then exploring the artisans to see what products, colors and images I can come up with. Artfire makes it easy to share these with others! I will post my collections on here as I make them. That being said here are my two latest! ENJOY!! Please feel free to rate them and comment.
