Desperate Measures..

20 Feb

Before I start with today’s post I want to thank all the readers of this blog for banding together and flagging. WendyStory has 0 items today. Thankfully Etsy got the message. It’s sad that it has to take 300 of us at a time but, I won’t complain. Thank you!

I wonder if these new hard to get noticed times on Etsy will call for super desperate measures. Such as, putting your item in a less popular category with NO correlation. Almost laughable.

Just a quick look around & I found:
**colorbutton Icon Return Label Stickers in plants and edibles.
**carersattic sticker sheets in woodworking.
**tiarastutus 0-3 Month Old tutu in weddings. (For the young bride)
**BasketsbyShar presents the “music” basket even though she is not sure why. But the name alone means it needs to be in the music category.
**hbojorquez Leather Box is music.
**LayetteOnMeBaby Newborn bloomers in Glass category.
**ZoeChen Vintage Bird Jacket in Holidays.

And even though it does have a connection, I found a full size sewing machine from thewoolybully in the category showcase for needlecraft.

    Well regardless, I think it should be in “Children”

    Their “one day sale” has gone on for two, going on three days. Secondhand machines are so cheap, I don’t understand why anyone would go for this.
