    OK, here is the deal.  I have a 2 year old who loves to collect seashells.  Usually Coquina's (the little ones).  I use them for education sorting, counting, colors, etc.  Now I would love to find a way to make some money off all these things I have laying around!

    Does anyone have any suggestions other than EBay or Amazon for selling craft type stuff?

    As always thanks for any tips!

      How about Craiglist? have you thought about finding interested collecters there?

      Well, you could start a blog and advertise what you have for sale. One way to attract the right crowd to your blog would be to participate in EntreCard where you will get targeted visitors.

      I use Entrecard and have the toolbar installed on my FF browser. I have visited sites by category and have actually made purchases solely from visiting those sites through EntreCard.

      By the way, EntreCard is not an affilaite site at all, its just a vehicle to view sites, similar to stumble upon but better.

    You could start a Wordpress blog (I mean a Wordpress.org blog, not a free Wordpress.com one).  That requires a small investment - you'd have to buy a domain name and get hosting - but Wordpress has lots of themes and plugins, including some that enable you to set up a shop, which is what you want.   It doesn' t require a lot of IT knowledge to do, either.

    Check out Etsy.com.  It's a site for selling handmade items and crafts.
