And so here we are in October 2015 and new beginnings have started when Amazon launched the new marketplace, Handmade at Amazon at approximately 3am EST. Some reports state midnight... I particularly received my email of the huge announcement at 3:14 am to be exact.

Certainly there will be much controversy over this new beginning for Amazon's handmade marketplace as the very well known and established online marketplace, Etsy (Brooklyn, NY 2005) just may soon see their match. Some reports state that Amazon will blow Etsy out of the water.

Hmmm... well only time will tell.

In a recent online Forbes magazine article, writer Nicole Leinbach-Reyhle interviews Etsy CEO, Chad Dickerson who firmly states:

We believe we are the best platform for creative entrepreneurs, empowering them to succeed on their own terms. Etsy has a decade of experience understanding the needs of artists and sellers and supporting them in ways that no other marketplace can. Our platform attracts 21+ million thoughtful consumers seeking to discover unique goods, and build relationships with the people who make and sell them...

Such a statement by Dickerson surely demonstrates that Etsy will continue to strive for excellence, as it has always done.

The good news (for me and many others) is that Etsy still receives plenty of love from both its buyers and sellers like myself. And what shop owner can resist that beautiful sound of "Cha-Ching!" every time a sale is made? It's addictive, I tell you, so feed my urge to hear it over and over again by purchasing the best designed handmade products you will find this side of the East Coast of the U.S. If you don't believe me that the ring of the register isn't addictive to the ear...try it out for yourself and click below:

See what I mean? I just love that sound.

Now... As For Handmade At Amazon

Now, as for Amazon... I have to give credit where credit is due, as the launch has just begun and so have sales. While I would not normally announce such a thing, the immediacy of it all is quite very impressive. Now about their seller's app...will it compare to Etsy's??? Time can only tell with that as well, yet I am sure Amazon has some very brilliant ideas under its sleeve.
