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”.
Find out more here AZCraze.com which is now Etsy.com.
Nice. Maybe I should start a marketplace and sell to Etsy?

Now you can get elastic hair ties to match any color of your wardrobe. We love these ruby reds by Knotisms on Etsy, only $5.99. Shop owner is Rachel and she’s from Jupiter. Florida. She says, “Creating things is my hobby, I love trying to figure out how to make something and the practice-makes-perfect aspect of it. Also, for some reason, I seem to really enjoy the business part of owning a shop. “
Rachel says she’ll be taking her business with her to college in the fall. After all, it’s so small it could fit in a bookbag now couldn’t it? Rachel says, “I love these little hair ties because they can tame wild hair (like mine) and because I get to play around with the colors from all the beautiful things that I see in the world around me.”
We have to agree. The color is wonderful! She has many colors in stock!
