just curious about something

pichuwatermelonhello, I was wondering if anyone knew websites other than etsy where I could sell things like kandi,perler, etc objects. Fees on etsy seem a little high on some things and I have a ton of questions concerning etsy but no answers and well.... no one has answered my questions. I was just curious on this because well school is happening and that's money so any cent at this point matters. If anyone knows a lot about etsy and could maybe help me out, hit me up


thank you for your time

ummmmm not really a website but as turbo said art show or craft market. For instance where i live in Missouri there's a farmers market that pops up every summer and it's every Saturday all summer long. though the fees for that may be more than etsy because you have to rent the both/ table space and normally it's BYOT but if you made enough larger pieces (for instance i've had people tell me they'd love place mats (aka large flat panels) or even table runners) or even hats you could easily make enough on a good day. however first two things i will tell you

TARGET audience and demographic are first rules of business for instance harry potter is always popular, and pokemon can be hit or miss, game of thrones stuff is usually either a smashing success or fail. you want to do stuff you know will sell prime example my friend tried telling me i should make stuff for her moms crafting booth she suggested given her moms area i make German and Italian flag stuff because they have lots of Germans and Italians there.

If you are really looking to sell your creations or work, Etsy is the quickest and easiest way to set up shop, like you said the fees are kinda high if you are selling for so low, 20cents to post and I think 10% of the final sale, getting your work out there would be the hardest part due to the competitive market, Other sites..... I know that you could do things on ebay as well but, Amazon has kinda taken over the online market. I think a good bet would be to rent a booth at a artshow or local craft market. Hope this helps, you can pm me anytime if you have any questions, i am always willing to help out.
