I found a forum of like-minded people who are also truly devoted to promoting handmade items. That forum is called Handmade Artists' Forum. I don't currently have a shop on that site but that may change because the fees are reasonable at $5 per month or $50 per year. There are no additional fees or commission. They are entirely devoted to real handmade items rather then the reseller junk that some of us have become so accustomed to seeing on other selling sites. The number of shops grows daily and there is a lot of variety and many items to window shop. For further information regarding opening a shop: https://handmadeartists.com/sell-info/
Joining the forum is free and the sign up is simple. The community of artists who are forum members participate in blog rings, Twitter rings, etc. to promote the forum, other shops, and the importance of buying handmade items. They also offer advice, creative feedback, and comaraderie without the negativity that is sometimes present in forums on other online selling sites.
Here's a small selection of the kinds of handmade items that you'll find in the shops on Handmade Artists' Forum:
Triptych Art Print by Finnell Fine Art
Stoneware Wheel Thrown Bowl by LG Potter
