    Mods, if this would be better in a different subforum, please feel free to move it!

    So as a lot of you already know, I make buttons (the pinback kind, not the kind you find on clothing). I used to have an Etsy store for them, but my old button maker broke, so I closed it for what was supposed to be a fairly brief period of time until I got it replaced--but once I did get it replaced, I wound up not reopening it, because iirc I'd heard Etsy made some kinda shitty policy changes? So that gave me pause.

    That being said, I'd really love to get my button business off the ground again--they're so much fun to make, and having a little extra change is nice!

    Basically, I have two questions here:
    1. What's my best option as far as sites for selling things goes? I'll gladly go back to Etsy if that's my best choice, but I'd like to know if there's anything better.
    2. What would be a reasonable price for a 2.25" button? I'm thinking maybe $2.50 for non-custom buttons and a little extra for custom ones, but I worry that's a bit much for a button and that people won't buy them if I price them like that.
    Thanks in advance for your help!
