*A Poll & A Giveaway!*



So, you probably know by now, I enjoy making things........ be it sewing, or painting, I enjoy it~ I love it........

I also love selling my creations........ I have sold on eBay off and on for some 9 years now........ through blogging, I have learned about Etsy, but have yet to try selling there........ so, here is my question........ a "poll" so to speak........

eBay vs. Etsy

What do you think? Which one is better for selling on in your opinion? Which have you had success with? Do you do both? Which do you think is more "buyer-friendly"?

I really would like to know........ please post here and tell me what you think........

As a "thank you" for your opinions and help, I am offering a very-special giveaway! Simply post your "vote" and/or opinion here, and you could win a wonderful super special, top secret, "handmade" treasure........ from me to you....... just because.......It might be crocheted........ it might be sewn..... it might be painted........ you just never know, and I ain't tellin'! But I guarantee it will be one of a kind, and I really think you'll like it........ .I will draw a name in one week, on Friday, June 8th, from all who are kind enough to post a response here, and I will send out my special thank you gift!


So, come on, I know you like giveaways!

I've purchased on Ebay and Etsy, but never sold anything. So I won't be any help! I just wanted to tell you, how pretty the plates are!

i sell on ebay, but not on etsy, so i'm not much help either - lol! i have, however, purchased items from both sites. i think they both have their good points, it just depends on what you are shopping for... debbie =)

I've sold on both Ebay and Etsy. I've had more luck on Etsy but I really haven't tried long enough on Ebay. I would love to hear some tips from you on getting my creations "out there" to Ebay buyers. So...I guess I wasn't much help. ;o)

Joyce, I sell on both Ebay and Etsy as well as my own website. I love both, but prefer Etsy. Etsy is growing daily. The cost is next to nothing....$.20 to list and 3.5% fee on the sale price and no cost for your own shop on Etsy. Your listings also stay up for 4 months! The trick to selling on Etsy is to continually list either daily or a few times each week. When I don't list, I notice a drop in sales. Hope this helps you.

I've been selling on eBay for 8 years now. I did try selling and buying on Etsy but I like eBay better..for both selling and buying. Hope this helps! Have a lovely day :-} ~Mary~

I'm not a seller so take what I say with a grain of salt but as a buyer I prefer Etsy - it just seems friendlier. It seems a little harder to search for items though (compared to Ebay).

I have never sold on Etsy, but have bought there. (I never received my purchase, either), I only sell on Ebay and my website, sorry!

Hello, Just wanted to stop in and ask that you please keep Amy (FourSistersInACottage) in your prayers today. She is having a radical bilateral mastectomy surgery.
Thanks so much!:-}~Mary~

Joyce, I've never sold on either but I have bought on them. I really like the way Etsy is set up. I have a shop but I haven't listed anything yet, but dear, you are definitely inspiring me to do so.
