Etsy is a vast sea of everything crafty. So how does one navigate the constant waves of new items and renewals of thousands and thousands of artists and pieces?
One trick I have seen published by many a successful Etsian is the re-list process. On Etsy you have the option to not only renew an item that has expired but also to renew items active in your shop. This feature can be utilized to keep items from expiring in the first place. Or the same process as the crafty little trick of having a piece pop up for a fleeting moment on Etsy's front page as a fresh item.
It is necessary to keep in the eye of the daily Etsy browser, and renewing items is the best way to do that in between new items and photo-shoots.
I am in front of a fire on a beach on Lake Michigan with many of the people I love. I wish my mom had come, but I'm still having the best time. And I again find myself contemplating my craft with a lingering hope. Unsure of my full intentions, I do know one thing, that I want to pursue what I do best. Even part time is better than no time. When I get home I will start my online seller journey once more. Slow and steady this time. (It wins the race remember?!)
