    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!

      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 blog, not a free 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.
