When I first heard that Amazon was starting a division to sell crafter's handmade work, I thought "Oh, great~!" but the article at the link below adds more information which convinces me not to buy OR sell anything handmade at Amazon.com and I'll always try to buy local, or from the small home businesses that abound on the internet. Etsy doesn't gouge their crafters/sellers with high percentage commissions, and I want the small businesses to survive and even THRIVE.

Read the article for yourself and make your own decisions...
