Small business owners always face the problem of finding the market. Sometimes they are unable to get good prices which value their products as they have to compete with lot of other sellers in the same market.
**update in 2019 :Later I found that this online shop is no longer available.
Most of the stay at home moms use their creativity to make beautiful handmade items and crafts in order to earn an income through their products. Most of them are successful in selling those crafts online in places like Etsy. However, with the competition and with lot of similar sellers available, it is not easy to success as a seller in most of these popular online shops.
Today I want to introduce you a new online market place for your crafts and handmade items. Simply it is an Etsy alternative.
