In the past year, a lot of my fave Etsy sellers have moved to BigCartel and seem to be flourishing there.
I think its always good to have options and if that's working better for them,
then thats where they should be.
There's a pretty big debate going on about which one is better and with the rise of other competitors such as Cargoh, Storeenvy, Artfire, it's not going away any time soon. Just cos I'm addicted to Etsy, doesn't mean you won't find me on all these other amazing marketplaces... and I'll be sharing any cool finds as always.
