Art Fire Vs. Etsy

So in an attempt to actually sell something, I've cross-listed my Etsy items on ArtFire. I like that ArtFire doesn't charge a listing fee or take a cut of your sale price... it's absolutely free to sell there! You can upgrade your account to list as many items as you like and access all kinds of features. If I end up selling anything there I will probably do this. It's not as pretty or as well known as Etsy, but that may work in my favor because there isn't as much there. Who knows.

What do you think of the shops?

Here is my ArtFire Studio

and here is my Etsy Shop.

Any input would be appreciated!

Congratulations and welcome to ArtFire! During the holidays everyone can list unlimited items at ArtFire ;) . I thought I'd also let you know about the rapid cart feature that is available to all members. It's sort of like your etsy shop window, however it is remote checkout enabled. Which, paired with our no-account needed checkout, means someone can shop and buy from your ArtFire studio without ever leaving your blog. Here's wishing you a happy holiday season :)
