ive never made a website before, and im sure theres got to be completely free ones, see , I screen print patches, (well not very lately but I have accumulated a lot of my own product from earlier on.., and I make wire wrap jewelry and do some drawings, I know of course the whole shipping to whoever part will be of a variable cost, but I just am interested if anyone on here dabbles in having their own online store/trade grounds of diy stuff and whats the best no cost way to do it. Thanks

As far as I know, most pre-existing retail sites (Bigcartel, Etsy, Storenvy, etc.) take a percentage or have subscription fees. Some of them don't take very much though so it might be worth looking into.

It wouldn't be very elegant, but you could do it for free if you just set up a blog on a free blogging site and list every item as a blog post. if you did it that way, you would have to conduct the actual business via email then Paypal though and I personally would be a lot more likely to buy something if I could do it through an established site that keeps track of all the orders and stuff.

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $0.00 of $50.00
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $0.00 of $75.00
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $0.00 of $100.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $0.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.

I'mma cut to the chase: You don't call me what I consider to be a slur or insult, and I won't call you names.
You say I should love myself and have more self-confidence. You've got it all wrong. I love myself plenty, and I know for a fact that I am capable of doing incredible things, both good and evil.
You say fake it till you make it. I'm too honest for that. Instead I will have faith in myself, and act accordingly.
These new rules for the train riding forum are ridiculous. I've been on here for 5 ish years.
