Yesterday I spent a bit of time on the Etsy community boards and met a fellow seller with the screen name KitchStitch. After we both had a laugh at our name similarities, I checked out her store, then her blog and really enjoyed her work. I also noticed one of her posts was about the places her shop has been publicized since it opened. A couple of times it had been on the front page featuring her items. Her links to show this were to a Flickr account kept by an Etsy Admin of all the front pages since March 24! She had found them by doing a Google search of her store. So of course I then did a search on my store names and came up with nothing.
Last night I also made a sale, but no payment was received. When I looked into it today, I noticed the buyer had written a note explaining about payment and also mentioned she’d seen this item on the front page and had to have it as she loves lemons. Gah! I missed it. Then I remembered the Flickr account and went to check it out. This is what I found!
To the best of my knowledge, this is the first time either of my shops has made the FRONT PAGE! I’ve been in a few treasuries, but this was the first on the front page. It was curated by an Admin at Etsy. Pretty cool.
