I did a Google search tonight for alternatives to etsy and this is what came up...


Below is a list of 12.
  • Bonanza. On Bonanza, creators can start their own e-commerce website and provides resources to help you run your online business and build a brand. ...
  • ArtFire. Crafters from all over the world can come together at this marketplace to buy, sell and interact. ...
  • ArtYah. ...
  • Silkfair. ...
  • Storenvy. ...
  • Zibbet. ...
  • Cargoh. ...
  • Aftcra.
  • Folksy
  • Icraft

I am so happy that ArtYah is in with some pretty heavy hitters.

Here are their creation dates:

Bonanza - 2007
Zibbet - 2007
Cargoh - 2009
Artfire - 2001
Storenvy - 2008
Dawanda - 2006
Silkfair - 2005
Folksy - 1999
Icraft - 2007

ArtYah - 2015

Here is a link to the post:

I'd say that we are in with some very good company.

Thank you,

ArtYah allows you to find collectible jewelry, unique style for your home, and antiques and vintage items. There is no membership fee, nor listing fees. According to the website, ArtYah began when they realized that other sites did not provide the kind of marketplace many buyers and sellers were looking for, so they decided to make one. Website: https://www.artyah.com

They did however claim there are no listing fees which is wrong they need to correct that.

It was correct at the time the article was written.

"By Jennifer Post, Business News Daily Contributing Writer January 24, 2018 10:34 am EST"

It may have been Christine, but that article was contributed on the above date. Listing fees were in effect and for anyone new coming to this site figuring their not going to have to pay any fees, will be very disappointed.  That doesn't help with gaining any ground with new sellers, because they might  feel like their being scammed. Not saying all will feel that way but some will... It's better to be up front as much as possible and people writing these articles need to get their facts straight right from the get go. If Craig could reach out to that contributing writer and clarify this and amend that statement it might work more for ArtYah ... rather than against.  Again, this is only my opinion. Ü ~Emilie~

Apologies, I just scrolled down and skimmed the ArtYah bit which sounded very familiar to something else i read in a comparison recently so I did not check the rest or the date and realise this article was so recent.

I sent a message to them and also mentioned that Artyah is a great site and well worth doing a more in depth article on
