I have entertained the idea of selling my smaller paintings on Ebay, but there was such a negative stigma from other artists that you are devaluing your artwork. But I have heard success stories too. Give this article a read and tell me what you think...and if you have a store on eBay, post your link. ;)

Fashioning standards for industry conduct (Art & Antiques)

Fashioning standards for industry conduct (Art & Antiques) | Consumption Junction | Scoop.it

Doctors have the American Medical Association; lawyers are represented by the American Bar Association, car dealers, teachers, religions, and even countries have organized representation to promote their best interests to the public and government. Art and antiques dealers, one can categorically say, do not have any form of an umbrella organization that can advocate for its interests.

The many organizations that do attempt to be representatives of the industry are narrow in focus and small in membership. Whether it is the Art and Antiques Dealer’s League of America (AADLA), Antiques Dealers’ Association of American (ADA), National Antiques & Art Dealers Association of American (NAADAA), or the various state and local associations, they all have limited membership, finances, and interests. Individually they are just groups that attempt to create their own exclusivity of membership and can’t look at industry issues, be it a simple standard form of invoice or other business documents that have dealer and customer interests in mind; how about the larger purpose of the public’s image of dealers?

Never paid for the service; even less likely to do so now.

Laura Brown's comment, May 24, 2013 11:04 PM
You don't need to pay for it now. They are not even taking payments for anyone to pay for a new account. But, they will let those who currently have paid accounts to keep paying. Mainly just to not see ads and have stats for the photos posted.

When austerity goes too far... Talk about a true proposed sell-out! This would have been far worse than the use of a Beatles song in a commercial or something.
