Undoubtedly created to compete with the beloved Etsy, Big Cartel is the "new kid" to watch. Why? Because it doesn't charge fees...no joke. They also support music artists, bands, and record labels--differentiating themselves from other online websites supporting independent artists. One last perk to opening a shop on Big Cartel...their beautiful shop pages...like this one.
My Big Cartel Pick of the Week? Ella McDoniels. Gorgeous original collages that speak beautiful, calming things to me. Isn't her website beautiful? I've been day dreaming about her mixed media pieces all week. Check out her blog as well--equally exquisite.
Many thanks to Missy for the introduction!
