Etsy Front Page – Bringing People and Goods Together

I had a “pinch me, I must be dreaming” moment last week when I discovered that another one of EDCCollective’s items was featured on Etsy’s front page. Last Friday, my vintage cloisonné butterfly belt was picked by Etsy for a front page treasury that was posted at 12:30pm EST. You can click on the treasury to enlarge it.
And even better than the increase in views and hearts that I received from the exposure on the front page, is the sale that resulted! Thanks Etsy. I found out from my customer that she had had a similar belt many years ago that she loved and jumped at the chance to purchase mine when she spied it on the front page. Sometimes when people go to Etsy, they know exactly what they are looking for and sometimes things like Etsy’s front page treasuries will let them discover things that they didn’t know could be searched for. I think it is really cool that Etsy brought this customer and my item together like that.
