I just want to add, please do not list anything that was not made by you and call it handmade, like ribbon sculptures bought in bulk from another seller, bows bought in group buys or from China, tutu's, pettiskirts, petti rompers, kufi hats, crochet headbands, stuff from HH that isn't altered etc.

I have no idea if that's what you sell, I'm just saying that there are some resellers on Etsy, it's easy to spot and they lose all respect from the real crafters and are reported. Resellers belong on Ebay or their own websites.

My bit of advice that I like to give is take some time to heart items. When you heart things, people sometimes heart you back & it adds up to more exposure. Along those same lines is to use circles. Circles are so helpful in tracking trends. I add my customers to my circle, other sellers I admire, people with good taste, etc. It usually takes a bit for your store to be noticed. Just be patient.

One more thing: Take excellent pics. There's tons of competition on Etsy & you want your pic to be enthralling enough that someone will want to click on it. You don't have to show everything in your first pic. Sometimes curiosity is helpful! Best of luck in your new shop! You'll have to let me know the address when you get some things listed so I can add you to my circle. (http://www.fancyschmancybyjeni.etsy.com)
