Etsy vs Ebay - Close my eBay store or not

Ok, I am going to toss a coin in the next few weeks to decide if I shut down my eBay store.

I recently made PowerSeller on eBay, however, to keep a store full of inventory is costing me more and more every month with all the fee increases. Then on top of that, why have a store when you don't get hit in searches nearly as easy as having auctions, which then adds more expenses.

Hmph, decisions, decisions. I just don't know. Exposure is the key yet where do you draw the line to justify all the expenses. It's all cheaper than a brick and mortar store but as a part-time side business, I'm exhausting my profits to pay for fees these days it seems.
