Tictail is now taking off and its CEO has some grand plans to make it a "grown up" ETSY. Some of these products you may still be able to find on Etsy and it's true that many shop owners will continue displaying their products on both platforms. My focus being on design - even that of a website - means that I somehow find Tictail more appealing.
The shop-owners feel the same:
“As a designer you are picky about where you show your stuff and want it to be in the right environment,” says Brooklyn based leathers designer Timle, who has had a shop on Tictail for about two years. “At Tictail, I can create my own site and still be part of something bigger.”
There is an artful efficiency to Tictail.
I will let you decide and would love to hear how your navigation experience has been so far if you are a buyer, or your selling experience if you run a shop on the platform.
