I know right now many Etsy sellers are unhappy and are leaving for Artfire or other sites. But I'm not one of them. While I wasn't particularly happy with the loss of the forums, Etsy hasn't done much of anything to anger me. I've had a shop on Artfire for a long time and have neve had a single sale there. But I have been making sales fairly regularly on Etsy with minimal effort. So I am not joining the Anti-Etsy bandwagon. I am staying with Etsy
LOVE YOU ETSY!!!
