I have an Etsy shop but I'm considering doing a free standing shop instead. I seem to be doing all the marketing so I'm not sure there's a big advantage to staying with Etsy.

Any thoughts?

If you create your own website, you have to know how to set up a payment system, and maintain the site. You also would need to drive traffic to the site.

I would go with Shopiify or Etsy,mainly due to the hassle of setting up a secure e-commerce site. I'm Leaning towards shopify buts it's your decision.

I wasn't impressed with Shopify - maybe I should take another look.

In other news, I finally got decent pics - or will have when they are sent to me.
