AZ Craze Marketplace for Handmade Vintage Supplies
In 2015 I wrote an article about AZ Craze, they were a newer marketplace for listing handmade, vintage and craft supplies. Much like Etsy they keep their fees low. They offer two different plans, a flat $5/month or 5% commission on sales. Nice! One of the reasons Etsy became so big so fast, is their low fees which attracted sellers who were tired of paying big Ebay fees, etc.
Now this website was acquired by Etsy. WOW. This post has been updated.
Etsy is still where it’s at. NICE.
Previously they told me ” Az Craze started as an idea in the summer of 2010 after the founders got tired of paying high prices and fees to sell crafts and other products online. So we set out to create a company that would be able to offer a fair price to all sellers and that would not favor sellers that may be willing/able to pay more to be a “featured” seller.”
Their motto: “No matter how small, EVERY business matters & should get the opportunity to thrive”.

Nice. Maybe I should start a marketplace and sell to Etsy?

Up close and personal: Nadia from Lia Dia Designs takes pride in her work.
When we asked shop owner Nadia what her passion was, “The ancient art of henna design has always fascinated me, and many times I would catch myself doodling in a henna/mehndi style…so when I decided to start crafting for my ETSY store, my concept was to take inspiration from traditional henna design and modernize it with colors, crystals and new applications besides body art.”
We originally found this shop from her wedding toppers found on Design Swag.
