etsy vs folksy?

a question to you all.....
what sell more Etsy or Folksy?
does anyone sell from them or both and which is more successful?



  1. Hi,
    Thankyou for following my blog:0)
    As to your question...... I have asked this myself! I think if you can get a bit of a following on Etsy, it's best to go there. The audience is huge compared to Folksy (I've been checking 'em both out for about 18months!) I started listing in my etsy shop just before Christmas, and (although I haven't sold anything yet,) I'm still sure it's the best shop to be in.
    There is also DaWanda -which is free, and MISI which is a bit more expensive. Also Folksy is a bit more expensive with a higher end fee.
    Hope this helps!
    Kind regards,

  2. Has anybody tried It's a storefront, not auctions. No fees. I haven't listed there yet.

    eBay's just not the same over the last few years, so I'm looking for an alternate. I usually sell patterns or supplies; vintage, not new.

    Have a great week!

  3. I do know Violet White has some opinions on them both. You can find her blog here:

  4. Good question - I just joined Etsy after giving up on eBay. Will check those others out too. Thanks for posting.
