How To Get More Sales on Etsy Part 6 of 6

Thanks for sticking it out with me – we are finally on to our last post! I’ve learned a lot from these seasoned vintage sellers. Here are a few parting words of advice:

What are your top three tips for getting more customers on Etsy?

Stacey from Vintage Jane says “I have a lot of repeat costumers, so customer service is very important to me. I always ship out quickly, communicate often, and am always fair and kind. It also takes time to get your shop noticed, and list as many items as you can.

Laura from Peachy Chic Boutique gives this advice:
1. Choose items the market wants (make adjustments as you go).
2. Choose language for titles customers will search for to find that item.
3. Good pictures will get you into treasuries & more exposure.

Susan from Callooh Callay said “(1) have wonderful products, and do your research on how to present them and what key words to use; (2) take great pictures; (3) get out there and promote it in whatever way you choose (ads, blogs, treasuries, Twitter, etc.)--don't just expect people to find you.”

Finally, Cindy from Two Dog Vintage says:
1. Great descriptors in your tags and titles
2. Make sure the first photo - the one that shows up in the search listings - is a great photo.
3. Tenacity - you can't post three items and sit around for 4 months waiting for them sell. If you treat your shop like a business (show up every day and do the work to make it successful) it will be!

Chalkboard Painted Vase

I had a can of chalkboard paint lying around and I decided to make a little chalkboard paint vase.  I picked up this little gem from the thrift store for $1.99.  It’s pale green in color.  I like the dark black chalkboard paint against the light color of the vase. Who is Minnie? Minnie is my cute little grand-pup (on the right side of the doggie pic below). Who is Karl? He is the big golden retriever who lives behind us.  They bark at each other all the time – it’s so darn cute! I couldn’t get a good picture of Minnie and Karl together, so Lola had to do. Lola is the puppy my daughter fostered for 3 weeks – isn’t she super adorable? Seriously, super adorable!  Lola was about 6 weeks old in this picture and Minnie is 3. Minnie thought she was getting a sister....but Lola adopted out quickly.  Imagine that! Linking up with: Someday Crafts    

25 Things you might not think to bring Cruise Packing List

  Tendering away from the Carnival Spirit Since I just came off my third cruise, I thought I would put together a little cruise packing list.  I was searching on the internet and I came across so many sites that tell you to pack things like bra and underwear – well duh, I don’t need help remembering to pack things like that!   So, this is not your normal cruise packing list, this list contains stuff you might not think to bring.  Please feel free to add anything else you can think of to the comments section of the post.  1.      Walkie Talkies – since you won’t be using your cell phone on the cruise, these would have been invaluable to bring.  Notice I said ‘would have been.’ We were cruising with some friends and there were times that we wanted to get in touch with them, but we had to rely on pure luck to just “run into them . ”    2.      Power Strip – there was only one outlet to plug two items into (and it wasn’t in the bathroom). 3.      Jeans – even if you are go
