    Ok, understand. I thought you are in that auction house.
    Their seller commission is a little bit too high so that I quit to sell my items in their auction house.

    well....handmade makes me think ETSY.......but ebay and Etsy have been discussed here on the site before with some finding sucssess and others not...

    I have seen many auction houses raise their commissions , making it harder to sell .......and buy !

    I'm afraid I can't be of more help ! :sorry::sorry:

    Mine are much better, and far more better than ebay, Etsy and 1stdibs etc....they are basically arts rather handmade crafts.
    it looks like I cannot insert pictures in private conversation.
