Etsy showcase

My friends have been asking me how my Etsy store is doing. I keep saying, it's ok, but not the results I want.  Today, I decided to look into showcasing my items.  I figure it's worth a shot. The most I will lose is $7.

I clicked on the "purchase showcase listing" and the earliest they have is for Sunday, May 16th! It looks like these spots get sold out fairly quickly. I'm taking that as a good sign. Perhaps just having the spotlight on my store for 1 day will generate a lot of traffic to my store and will result in lots of sales! ;-)

In the meantime, I have a lot more to add this week so that when my store is showcased, I will have more to sell. It's just so time consuming to take pics, upload pics, list the items, describe them, measure them, etc.  That's why  it takes me a few days to put a couple of items on there.  I'm not complaining, it's just that  I've had people ask me if that's all I have on my store.  I have to explain to them that there's more coming, it just takes a little time.

Well, wish me luck.  I will let you all know how the showcase goes.  I have a few friends on Etsy and I'm sure they could benefit from this too, if it works.  I'll definitely let you know fellow Etsy sellers!
