You can get a basic account for FREE.
You can upgrade to a Premium account (only $9 a month) and have all kinds of freedoms with your shop. You can even try it for free for 7 days if you want, just put FREETRIAL in the coupon area.
I would love it if you signed up under me though. For every premium seller I get to sign up, I get $1 off my monthly rate. I have 2 already but would love to have a free account for life!
Things that I have found so far that I like better then listing on Etsy:
you can copy listings and edit,
you can give customers coupon codes
you can set your shop on sale and not have to refund!
you are not limited to 10 sections
they don't charge you listing fees OR final value fees
Come try it out!
