Etsy has been having a promotion to get new members. As I am an established seller, you can open an Etsy store using my join code and we both get 40 free listings. This is a great way to try-before-you-buy as it were, as normally listings cost $.20 each (and I need all the help I can get also...). This way you don't have to pay any fees until you actually make your first sale (or go beyond the 40 free listings).
I really do recommend Etsy as a selling platform. They have good keyword searching methods to bring buyers to your shop, and excellent customer service.
I've had my Etsy store open for three years now, so if you have any questions, just ask!
