This week I opened a DaWanda shop for a new project (more about that later in the week...) so today I'm bringing you some of the handmade goodies available on DaWanda.com.  If you've not heard of it, DaWanda is a handmade marketplace from Germany which is expanding out into the UK and France.  The main advantage to DaWanda is that there are no listing fees and just 5% commission on sales.  As it is based in Europe it will also bring products to a different market than US-based Etsy and UK-based Folksy, which means lots of new customers who haven't seen your products before.  Hurray! The disadvantage is that the prices are all in Euros, so I'm coming over all European for this post.
