Do you have trouble selling your Art or Crafts online? Not to sure where to turn ? Here is a list from over at Artsy Shark that may give you some ideas or places to look into. I’m know that I’m going to try some of them out to see what happens. I’m not endorsing any venues; these are a resource only. I’m am going to check some out and if I have any luck I will report back.
I’m on Deviant Art,Fine Art America and A Singular Creation Art Community with just a small offering but they have a nice contest listing. I still have been unsucessful at selling anything yet. I really would like to know if any others have some thoughts on where to try.
