If you're a crafty cat or an eager buyer, you undoubtedly know about Etsy, the online marketplace for buying and selling independent-made cool stuff.

Etsy isn't without drama, though; it can often be difficult to find something genuinely unique among the droves of resellers. Luckily, there are a lot of options available if you need that individual touch.

I'd prefer ListingDock.com, they recently launched but this marketplace has a potential to stand next to etsy in near future.Report Abuse

Yes, I think the best alternative to Etsy is to create your own shop online, with your name and personality. It can be done in minutes with Shopify.

It is also the best alternative to eBay, you can find out more on this page:

You may want to check-out Storemate.com and artfire.com as good alternatives.
If you want something different try out storemate.com, I registered on storemate.com and seen some sharp increase in the traffice directed to my website.
Unlike easy and artfire they are not restricted to handmade, I get to promote to a bigger audience (all design buffs).
The best about storemate is, I get to help out my customers in real-time using their 'Talk-About' feature. Helping out with questions on custom options, shipping queries etc in realtime.
I even passed on exclusive discounts to them during these help-out sessions, which turned casual enquiries into quick sales and followers for me.
I have been Storemate's "Featured Designer" for 3 weeks, straight! ( My proud moment!) :D

Artfire is included, but thanks for the tip about Storemate :)
