🌈💓🧿Hey y’all! I’m an afrolatinx jewish & chronically ill/disabled trans artist running a small resin business. It’s going well so far & will ideally enable me to not need to regularly crowdfund for emergencies AND donate to community members in need. However I need an online shop & the service I like is $200yr. I am hoping to raise funds & ideally make this my last personal fundraiser! Plz donate if u can💓:
Www.Cash.Me/$vicentevalentino

Also if anyone wonders why I’m not just using Etsy, they’ve done some really predatory and sketchy stuff with black artists before and their current marketing & fee prices are kind of ridiculous not to mention art theft is rampant so I really do not feel comfortable on that platform. I want to use squarespace, I can set it all up my way, transaction fees are 3% which is tolerable, and I get my own domain name. I feel like that’s the best option for me rn.

@vinnyboi This makes me want to work on a federated etsy alternative...

@vinnyboi By the way, anyone got an idea for an open source, federated etsy alternative? :catThink:

@JennyFluff @vinnyboi I am a mere programmer fan-ferret & crafter andbut I would *absolutely* LOVE to have an etsy alternative.. soooo muuuuch!

(Stopped using etsy several years ago after the 3rd change that made the site more & more unusable for me :P)

@Harena @vinnyboi I plan to go with it and I found a cute name: CraftsHop

Currently writing down a couple of ideas and trying to figure out how it's going to work..

@vinnyboi I can't donate right now, unfortunately, but I'd be more than happy to help build you a site with e-commerce functionality so you don't need to use a service.

@vinnyboi how small can you make the fists? I’d like to commission a set of stitch markers, but those usually max out at 3/4 inch long

@vinnyboi wow those hexogon rainbow cups look dope af
