I recently set up a shop on Etsy and I like the set-up and community atmosphere there. Didn't know of Artfire though until today when I saw it mentioned in a hub about making money online. I like artsy things so I went over to the site. It looks kind of similar to Etsy, but the menu options and arrangement are a little bit different. Since I'm familiar with Etsy now I'll likely stay where I'm at. Also, Etsy is more popular and I think there will be more action happening over there than will be going on at Artfire. Doesn't matter too much to me though, I plan to be spending most of my time here on Hubpages doing inspirational writing.
