I wonder if anyone has seen this ? Looks like Amazon want a slice of the Etsy business.

http://services.amazon.com/handmade/handmade.htm

I've only just had it pointed out to me, Googling shows chat about them trying to poach Etsy's users dating back to about May. Can't see if, or when, it goes live though. Or whether it can help with the fundamental problem of making a living from crafts - finding customers who will pay the cost of something truly handmade. We find plenty of people who would like hand made goods - if they come at a cost comparable to a machine made equivalent. Sorry, I'm not willing to work like a machine !
