It's a wonderful day

Happy Mother's Day to all mothers everywhere.
It's a wonderful day here in Patras. The weather is finally looking like it should've looked in April, but, hey, better late than never. We usually have 30-35 degrees Celsius this time of year and it's now hitting about 25 daily and we're still having a lot of rain which is highly unusual.
I made my first sale one one of the newer sites that are starting to give eBay a run for their money. And guess what? THERE ARE NO SELLER'S or FINAL VALUE FEES. The money is ALL mine. It's such a fantastic feeling after paying eBay to have a store, to list the items, and then for selling them. Without all of these expenses I was able to lower the listing prices of the items I list on this site and give the buyer a better deal.
What is this site, you ask. How can they do that, you ask. What's the catch, you ask. This site is ARTFIRE.com and it's totally free to set up a studio as they are called and totally free to list and sell. Artfire can do this because it is linked to a very large gemstone bead and jewelry making supply store, Fancy Findings, and they absorb the costs of the site as a means of advertising and supporting crafters of all types selling their handmade items. There are no catches as far as I can find and the people behind Artfire are a pleasure to deal with and go to great lengths in their customer support.
So, having said all of that, why don't you come and visit my Artfire studio today. You might just find that perfect piece that you've been looking for to match that new outfit.
