UK Handmade Online Sites

About a year or so ago when I first heard about etsy and starting selling it always bothered me that it was so American and everything being listed in US$ with no option to change currencies. I hoped that something similar in the UK would take off.

Well now there seems to be a few of them popping up all similar in the one respect that they are UK based, you can list in good ole £ and for selling your handmade crafts.

Of course they're all in beta stage at the moment. I feel like I want to support all of them because I want them all to do well as it can be hard getting started but will there be room for all of them? I guess time will tell but good luck to folksy, coriandr and myehive.

In trying to support all of them in some way. I have opened a shop on each of them, whether I'll manage to fill them is another story but if interested you can find me at:

my coriandr

Your shops look good, hope you do well and sell lots. Good luck. Keep us updated if you sell.

Wow, I'd never be able to keep up with so many shops!

It's tempting to sign up for one of them though!

Yeah to be honest I probably won't end up keeping all of them fully stocked as I don't think I'd have the time. I'd like a good UK one though so with all of them being in beta at the moment I'll see how they pan out. :)
