We are a new auction site for crafters and everything handmade.


We have only just launched within the last week crafty auctions

Site has not any auctions and is not full of members just yet.


There are no fees or any fvfs and no hidden fees to pay.

We have just installed our ssl today so that all pages are safe.

Even though we are .co.uk were accepting members from around the globe.

As soon as we can get the .com name we will be purchasing it .

We do hope you will come and join us .

Many thanks

The site is totally free from listing to final value fees .

What you make is what you keep.

There's no fees or any hidden fees onsite at all

regarding craft photos did not really want to make it too crafty.

as once we get auctions on they will be craft photos off the auctions.

did not really want to make it out of place if you get me

Penny auction sites seem to be losing money unless you go the Quibids way or so

OP's genre would never suit that style of listing.

You need to find a way to get a lot more traffic.
Not just on this forum.

Heck of an idea.

Spin off of Etsy but a UK version.

Nice colors and design.

Like others you need tons of traffic.

Get the word out as no one ever thought any website would take business away from ebay and etsy has done it and continues to do more and more.

Good luck.

And great idea!!!

The one thing that makes ETSY so attractable to me is they let sellers sell Vintage items.

If it wasn't for that, I would never even bother to click on their site.

Maybe start incorporating the vintage side to your site and see what happens.
