Keeping Up With the Trends

I’m not one for keeping up with the trends as sent out by Etsy’s Merchandising Desk.  Whatever Chiyogami paper I have on hand is what I have to use.  They may or may not fit the trends and there’s not much I can do about it.  But a conversation with an Etsy friend the other day got me thinking: start paying attention to the color tags.  I may not be able to fit the themes and patterns, but colors I may be able to do.  So I’m giving it a shot by tagging my newbies with the trending colors.  We’ll see what happens.  When I start adding sewn items to my line, then that will be more relevant and I can start reading more carefully.

On the other hand, I am still gathering wonderful advice from fellow artisans.  This month at 2nd Sat, I got some great constructive advice from a fellow crafter on how to improve the appeal of my booth.  I tried her advice on how to display my rings, and what she said would happen certainly did!  So we’re going with that.  And today, I met a wonderful jewelry artist who gave me some great pointers on trendy items right now.  So I’m going to be testing out some new graphic themes and we’ll see what happens!
