My First Artfire Sale-Whoohoo!!!!


I blogged very recently, albeit briefly about craft sites other than Etsy. I joined Art Fire, the "anti-Etsy," and 1000 Markets. I honestly only joined these sites to gain exposure, not thinking I'd seriously garner any sales, but lo and behold I got one off of Art Fire, and I am so stoked, psyched, overjoyed, and all other happy feelings in between. I sold this Chocolate Fantasy Cold Processed soap, and I feel like I can do anything now. It only takes one to spark the fire (no pun intended.)

I'm going to now more actively market my shops on these venues. There is an audience out there waiting to be "entertained."

congrats!

I had been thinking about trying that one out. Etsy is very crowded and that makes it hard to stand out on that site.

Thanks Misty! I agree that Etsy is over-crowded. It's very easy to get lost on that site, but I still love them. I predict that Art Fire is really going to come into its own in 2009. Get a shop now!!!
