I'm currently trying hard to get up to 100 items in the Crafty Green Poet Etsy shop. Apparently once you reach that number of items in a shop then your shop immediately moves up a level in terms of popularity and sales. I'm not sure I totally believe this as I've seen shops with over 100 items and not a great number of sales. On the other hand I'm so close to 100 anyway now I may as well try! Actually I have actually twice in the past fortnight hit 100 items but it's maintaining the shop at that level that's the real challenge.
It is of course complicated by the facts that a) people buy things and so the number of items in the shop falls and b) items need to be renewed every few months. So I'm aiming ultimately to have around 110 - 120 items in the shop at all times, though of course I don't know how realistic that will prove to be.
Earrings are among the quickest things to make and also among the most popular items I sell so I've recently added these earrings to the shop
here and these
Curtain tie backs have recently been selling well too, so I recently made and added this pair from wooden beads from a variety of vintage jewellery items
I used some totally different wooden beads to make this Hallowe'en bracelet
Beaded ID lanyards also sell well so I made this new one very recently
here. I've just got a new supply of metal lanyard connections so more beaded lanyards will be in the shop soon.
And I refashioned this vintage necklace and added a fair trade lizard pendant
Meanwhile I've steadily been adding more items to the Beach Finds section of the Crafty Green Magpie (vintage and supplies) Etsy shop.
