Well I guess that almighty dollar rules!
Unfortunately we've never really made any real money on Handmade Artists. If and when we get a few thousand vendors, we'll that will be a different story. It has always been our goal, but it has been a tough go. However I've day dreamed of the day when this site brings in money, and have even talked to our accountant about it. I said what happens if the website makes x amount? He said that would be great. Then I said, we'll......what about taxes????? His response has always been, if you make the money you'll have the money to pay the tax. That is always how I look at it, make the dough, pay the tax. Tax avoidance is one reason why I lose probably 35% of my pay check every week. Too many people are slipping by and it costs the honest ones more!

If they didn't do something like this, their dreams of being public would be done quicker

Andrew and Kimberly,  your lack of greed  is the main thing  I really appreciate about you.  I  have an Etsy store as many here do but I don't push it all that much. I have told many about this site.  Maybe one day you will be the premier  site  (old lady down on knees begging)
