Get yourself out there online...

www.etsy.com
The biggest online craft market in the world. It's american and its size means it's not without issues, but for a beginner who doesn't want to pay for a website it's a very very good place to start. Their emails explain what's hot and often pick out the trends that will be appearing on the high street a season or so before they happen.

www.folksy.com
The British version of Etsy. It's come a long way in the last year and it's really coming into its own now. Another great place to start, and gives you a website to put on your business cards.

www.notonthehighstreet.com
The one problem with folksy and etsy is that anyone can join, and therefore your work can be lost amongst the hundreds of other items listed. There is also very little quality control.
If you're at the point where you've built up a range of unique items, have got some stock finished and have your listings and photography all up to scratch then take a look at Not On the High Street. They have a selection process but don't let that put you off! Give it a go, and if they say no, then you can always try again.

www.contemporarycraftgallery.com
The Arts Council have just announced they are doing their own website selling contemporary crafts. There is a selection process and they will only accept 100% unique items. If you're ready for the next step then take a look.

www.othatslovely.com
A link that came up on our facebook page. It works off photos and then links directly to your website rather than doing the selling itself. It costs 99p per image so it might be best to put on a signature peice or two - the one that gets your style across and will make people want to see what else you can do.
