I've been on Etsy for a long time. I never sold much there and finally decided to close it today. I mean permanently. As in I no longer exist in the Etsy universe.
My views were abysmal and I don't have time to schmooze in the forums. So over the last few days, I've been slowly moving my pincushions and such from Etsy to Art Fire,
I like the atmosphere there so much more than Etsy. As I've moved things, I've deactivated them on Etsy and changed the listings a bit. So now my pincushions can be found on Art Fire, along with my jewelry. I hope I made the right decision but I haven't liked what's been going on there over the past year. Commercial is God now to the owners of Etsy and I would rather list on a site that still celebrates hand made.
