Grand Opening

I have opened a "booth" on Bonanzle. It's a neat site for shopping and selling; a venue for all products, not just art. I found it very user-friendly and easy to set up. You can import listings from Ebay and Craig's List as well as individual listings. The basic booth is free except for a small sales percentage. Upgrades are available for $10 or $20 per month, but I am sticking with basic to start. My next expansion would be Art Fire, if and when I decide to take on any more venues. For now, Ebay, Etsy and Bonanzle are enough to keep track of.

Here is a screen shot of my
Bonanzle Booth. It has a nice look, don't you think? All of my listings are on the same page as you scroll down in my booth.

Thanks for the useful information. There are some venues in your blog I was not aware of. While it's true that sites with lots of artists have lots of buyers, it also makes your work one of the many that may not get viewed because the potential buyer has so much to wade through. I joined Etsy in September 08, with only one painting sold to date. I contacted other artists on Etsy who seem to have done well and they all said the same thing, now that Etsy has so many artists their sales have dropped dramatically. We have to keep coming up with new ways to market ourselves. It does cut down on the time left to paint though. Interesting post.

I would love to know what ebay did besides raise fees to make it more difficult to sell art. Seems counter productive for them. Can you enlarge on your comments?
