Displaying Your Etsy Shop

Part of the reason I started this blog was to support and showcase my Etsy shop.  Originally, I used Ety's own Etsy Mini application to link to my shop.  You can choose how tall and wide it will display and it shows them in order of how they show up in your shop.  This app worked well enough, but didn't change what items were displayed unless you rearranged your shop or added new listings.  Boring!

It's a good idea to look at the featured apps area on Etsy from time to time to see what's new.  Craft Cult came out with a beautiful new widget for showcasing your shop.  The Pocket Shop creates a slide show of all the items in your shop.  You can choose the look of the widget and choose the order for the slide show.  I absolutely love the look of The Pocket Shop and I believe I had a sale because of it this week.  Someone who came to the blog to read about our featured Native American artisan saw something they liked in the slide show and clicked through to make the purchase.  It was nice to be able to use a widget that coordinated better with my blog's look and I think the constant movement of the slide show catches people's attention.
