Well is was a bit of an exciting week on Etsy for me...one of my items made the front page. It was random luck that I even saw it at all. Wednesday night I was taking one last look at my email/facebook/etsy before signing off for the night. Between signing in and out of my 4 shops I noticed my trees on the front page! I was some excited!
Well what does that mean...156 hearts, 397 page views, & one custom order.
How does it happen (for non Etsians)? Well, someone just like me on Etsy (in this case https://www.etsy.com/shop/ManyAMoonVintage THANKS!!!) makes a treasury and then some mysterious people back at Etsy HQ decide if a treasury is front page worthy...based on beauty and what is trending...and I imagine some random luck.
Random Luck got me to thinking about....GRAB BAGS! I love Grab Bags. When I was a kid, out west, my family road tripped a lot. We stopped at many roadside attractions...you know the ones with the Jack-a-lopes and Snakepits! They were filled with all manner of souvenirs including the grab bag bin. I was and still am a very frugal person that does not tend to gamble. But I have to admit the lure of the grab bag was irresistible to me. Some were great, some were a bit skunky...but it never stopped me from buying one. Guess I like a bit of mystery in life!
It just so happens https://www.etsy.com/shop/ManyAMoonVintage has a Mystery Vintage listing. Which reminded me that I had been meaning to add a Grab Bag to my shop, injoytreasures. So I did! (I promise~~~NO Skunky Grab Bags from Shop!)
Then I got the idea to make an Etsy Grab Bag Treasury...will it make the front page?
But you can find LOTS of Fun and Mysterious Deals on Etsy!
