to etsy or not to etsy

In a week of mad ideas, the latest mad idea has just hit. Etsy. I know I'm not the first crafter to go down this path, but you know it could be really cool. I have pondered about selling things like auntie dresses on Etsy before, but I'm not the most prolific of sewers (actually it takes a lot of motivation before I go near my machine. I think its because my room is dark). I thinking of perhaps selling my fashion illustrations there, perhaps in watercolour or acrylic (I have never used oils before), or if the work is digital, perhaps in a giclee print...

What do you think???

Have you heard of Made it which is much closer to home? (http://www.madeit.com.au/dev/default.asp)

There is also felt.co.nz

But I'd go for etsy for now.

And I vote for fashion illustrations and paintings like the lovely birds, mountains, trees one from July 22nd.

You could get them printed digitally to make sets of cards too.
