Have you heard of 1000markets yet? it is the same concept as etsy; but i have to tell it is so much user friendly than etsy.it also allows you to have a blog and is a social network at the same time (meaning my friends can leave me comments on my home page and communicate with me from inside the network. here is my banner for my new 1000markets shoppe which can be found at http://www.lemoncholys.1000markets.com/. keep in mind they are brand new, but i found the whole presentation more upscale and less busy than etsy. take a peek when you have a minute. Also, i'm in the process of working on a website, which is a bit daunting, but exciting at the same time. there isn't anything in it yet, but you can go see it at http://www.lemoncholys.com/
