MyMisi.com Handmade and Vintage Marketplace Alternative to Etsy?

My Misi, the new Etsy?

MyMisi.com gives sellers an easy online marketplace for handmade, craft supplies, and vintage.

A New Place to Sell ? 

A US and UK handmade / craft / vintage marketplace website just emerged called MyMisi.com, an offshoot of the reputable  Misi.co.uk .  The Misi.co.uk has grown to be one of United Kingdom's biggest and well loved handmade marketplaces, with only Etsy as it's main rival.   Now there's good news for USA folks,  now sellers in the US can use MyMisi.com, a shop-in-shop site! Easy to use and all items included are vintage (20 years old) , handmade and craft supplies.

Sell Vintage on MyMisi.com

Vintage sellers, you can sell vintage on MyMisi.com!

I signed up myself with my Facebook login, and attempted to open a shop. I have to say this whole process including my first listing only took me 5 minutes. Registration is easy, using Facebook or Twitter credentials (or your email) to sign up, and becoming a user is free to do.   The marketplace will first prompt you to enter a payment method that you will accept, then allow you to list items. The items are done in three easy screens, and since I tried it myself, it's pretty darn easy!

What they Say:

Q: As an online handmade marketplace, that goes beyond e-commerce, can you tell us more about the handmade marketplace and what MyMisi’s philosophy is?

A: Handmade creations are made with love and have that special personal touch of the crafter making the gift. Handmade items are part of a country and part of a culture. They are the result of the creativity of a person.    One of the amazing aspects of handmade is not only that each item is unique, but each item can be personalized to the taste of the buyer.

Q: What is the goal of MyMisi?

A: Our philosophy is to build more than a handmade marketplace but a community. We feel that by working side by side with our MyMisi sellers, We're helping them to build their business and promote their work from ground up. Some of our sellers have managed, with our help to grow their business, others are making their first steps, but we are there for all of them!

Bumbles Design on Etsy Digital Birthday Invitations

Bumbles Design Party Invitation
Cute Party invitation, digital from Bumbles Design on Etsy, this one $12.92

Bumbles Design Is an Etsy shop currently specializing in Personalized  Children’s Birthday Party Invitations.  I like the fact you can DIY with instant downloads and do your own snazzy party invites. Cute for kids yet parents will have a ball making these invites! I talked to the shop owner....

Q:  What exactly do you sell in your Etsy shop; Bumbles Design?

A: Bumbles Designs offers a wide range of Digital Birthday Invitations for kids.
My designs are inspired by a number of popular cartoons and movies. All
Digital invitations I have designed are personalized to each individual
customer by name, age, venue address and photo for some designs.

Q: What do you mean by “Digital” Birthday invitations and party Decorations?

By digital, I mean all my shop items are JPEG files, which are delivered via
email. The benefits of creating digital designs is you pay for one design and
are able to print as many times as you would like… and of course avoid
shipping costs of a heavy stack of paper. Digital birthday invitations also allow
the customers to send the invitations digitally; this may be through social
media websites of via email.
