I have decided that along with screen shots of front pages, I will include graphs and ranking from Alexa, a Web Information Company.
This post will have marketplace style sites which are not handmade only, but do have a place for them: eBay, eCrater, bonanzle, and silkfair.
You can find my FAQs on these and more sites here.

Graph: X axis: time and Y axis: daily reach (percentage)
note: graphs not always available if not in top 100,000…also, y axis not always the same % point markers
