I made this quilt, earlier in the year, for a class that I was teaching. I listed it on Etsy and when it expired, I didn't relist it. I have a message, in my Etsy shop, that if people are looking for things that have expired or want to see more things to visit my Artfire shop. I gladly set private listings for people if they still wish to purchase through Etsy.
A woman had marked it as a "favorite" on Etsy and saw that it was no longer in her favorites. She followed me to my Artfire shop to see if it was listed there. So, I wouldn't have to pay any Etsy fees, she purchased it through Artfire! Whoop, whoop! >:P
