Heliovdrake: Etsy has been pretty good to the soon to be future Mrs.VonDrake. It has given her a lot more self confidence then she had before.
She makes mainly LARP Costumes, Custom Dice Bags, E-Reader /Tablet Covers and assorted cool things.

In fact it has even given her, her first commercial resale order. A nice little LARP shop in Australia ordered 20 items from her shop for resale, and even offered to help grow her brand by making sure she gets credit for each item in their shop.

Even if Etsy ends up going the way of other places like Ebay. and catering to the mass producing junk makers, I'm sure someone will hopefully spot the open niche and fill it.

Right now Etsy seems to be a good place for first time crafters to get some exposure and make a nice bit of money, a place you can start selling your wares until you are ready to open your own website for just your items.

Heres her Etsy and DA links of your interested.

MusicMakeMyHeadPound: "We will only sell handmade items on this site. We will never sell manufactured items."


- manus (hand)
- facere (to make)

As somebody who had latin in school, I cringe with you.

Pretty sure established English definition trumps Latin root.
