ARTFIRE - Sell and Buy Handmade Items...NO FEES


There is a new kid in town...ARTFIRE. A community similar to Etsy without the fees! Artfire is charging a flat $7 fee/month for the first 5000 members...so have at it! If you refer 10 others you get lifetime membership for FREE.


Here is what they say about themselves:


Artisan Membership
Our handmade artisan marketplace provides a platform for artisans to prosper and grow their business with other like minded members. Becoming a member of our artisan community offers more than just a place to sell your handmade products. As an Artfire member, you are making an positive impact on our planet by supporting organizations that aim to help us all. The Artfire community represents you as an artisan and makes donations on your behalf to global causes.


It is extremely user friendly. So far so good for me...one problem..no way to "renew" like Etsy has to move yourself up to the top of the heap. I don't know what they plan on doing with that in the future, but I am sure that they will come up with a solution.


Be aware...this is in Beta production for the moment. Let me know what you think....
