The forum

When considering on the Etsy forum the sort of policies [shipping, returns, emailing] you want to follow in your store, I really recommend seeing if the seller offering advice has any experience. Like, have they sold anything?

A New Clothier

I had a blog for about two weeks that I attempted to keep updated with new sellers.... impossible. But heck, I'll just throw one in once and a while.

Here is a freshly stocked store, roselabiche.

Searching thru Your Sold Items

Wanna know something crazy? I wanted to use a picture from an old listing. Real old. I didn't want to have to dig thru my sold items until I found it. So, I thought to myself, what if I just search for the item on Google. And I found it immediately. Pretty sweet.

To be specific, I searched for my username and the item name.

Being hearted

It's been a long time since I have looked at how many people heart me. I actually know how long it's been since I've looked. 5 months. Tangent: I know this because I keep a selling+sewing diary. Very helpful I may add. Anyway, holy crap. 1,011 people heart me. That's nuts. And I also noted that just about half of all my total sales have been carried out in the past 6 months. A testimony to Etsy's growth, I would say.

So my advice to those who keep a close eye on their hearts: let's not think about it too hard, k? your time would be better spent not worrying about it :D
