    I just got an email that I had two sales on my Etsy shop tonight! Already paid for... I'll ship them out tomorrow. I was wondering when something was ever going to sell! I always wonder how people find you on there when there are so many talented sellers.

    My daughter did all of her shopping for my Christmas shopping on Etsy. She bought me all owl related things that were SO cute. I bought her a few things too, a black cat soap and I got my son a Paul Newman t-shirt. I guess shoppers that appreciate hand made gifts know that Etsy is THE place to go! The search feature helps when looking for a specific item. I love shopping on Etsy. I just can't believe the things that you can find on there. But, sometimes it does take a long time to make a sale. I was very very lucky. The very first time I listed things on Etsy, my first item sold while I was listing my third! I think I had two sales that night and thought it was going to be really easy to sell there! I guess it helps when someone is watching the newly listed items scroll and they see something they like and are ready to buy! I had two really good sales as custom orders, too.

    At Christmas time I somehow ended up with Etsy and Facebook talking to one another and I got recommendations for gifts for my facebook friends, based, I suppose, on their likes and interests as posted there. I thought it was a great idea! I guess that the sellers appeared in my recommendations because of the keywords they had entered beside their objects.

    So if you want to sell something be sure to label it with the key words people might be looking for- not only "quilt" but other style words that relate to it that might bring people to your Etsy shop to see it. If I was looking for a quilted gift for someone on Etsy I might type in "stained glass window" or "kaleidoscope" or "spring colours" or "raspberry red decor"- I don't know how many tag words they let you add, but use them all!!

    I know that they say that Facebook is a very good tool for advertising your Etsy shop, but I haven't figured out how to use it. I have on the other hand found old high school friends! haha! That's cool that you got gift recommendations that way, though. I have not seen that!

    Yes, the tags are key! I use as many as I can think of and probably could still use more!

    So what all can you sell on etsy? I've been hearing so much about it lately, but never have ventured more than a glance at it.

    You can sell anything that you make personally, as well as supplies and vintage items. It's amazing what you can buy there!

    Etsy is great!!! I have a shop and I've actually had people send convos of wanting personalized items. It's very easy to use and man...I can spend hours looking at all the stuff. I added your shop as a favorite!!! Good luck selling more! :)
