Online Places For Your Handmade Goods

Many artists, crafters, jewelers out there like myself have searched for places where they can sell or promote their handmade work. Last year I decided to take my handmade work to a new direction. After long research and readings I came across Etsy and now that's where I have my shops.
Today I dedicated most of my day checking out all these sites where one can promote their work. Whether it's a social network or market, you also learn from and support other fellow artisans. Some require a registration fee, but most are free. If it's of any help, please do sign up and promote away!
