Joining The Artfire Team was the best choice For me


Hello, If your considering Joining Artfire, Please Read. I started buying on Artfire in October 2011. Loved that you dont have to be a member to buy. I know alot of people dont like having to join to make purchases. After I started creating myself I opened an Etsy shop. I noticed you cannot promote anything there, So many restrictions and rules. Not that its a really bad thing, I can see part of it. But I didnt join Artfire then because of the monthly fee. After awhile of selling on Etsy a fellow artist asked me to Join Artfire, Jen from Artmakersworld. here on Artfire. She explained the advantages. One low monthly fee, free listings, and you get ... » Read More
