Where to Sell Your Art or Craft Online


I got this from my friend Madeline Faiella's Blog.

250 Places to sell your art or craft online.....

This is an extensive list, offered by ArtsyShark: http://www.artsyshark.com/125-places-to-sell
With permission from the site and the agreement to only post the first ten (10) listed, I decided I had to share this with everyone.  Enjoy and please take a peek over at the link above for the entire list.
There are always places we may not have thought to sell our work.  This list is worth saving and looking into. 
Good luck with your success!
