SET - Pounce...

This is the second of my Saturday Etsy Tutorials (S.E.T.s). This week I'm going to tell you about POUNCE - a great way to browse through popular items sold on etsy.


Pounce is listed under "Buy" and "Ways to Shop". It's a feature I never really looked at until recently, but it's addictive once you get started "pouncing". Pressing pounce will bring up 3 items that were just purchased. What I like about it is it also shows other remaining items from the same shop. It's a great way to expose yourself to things you would probably never find on etsy on your own. Go ahead, mark sellers and items as your favorites. Not only will it help you find the shops again, it is an important way for you to build your social network on the site (especially if you are a seller as well). Pounce keeps "shuffling" items so keep pressing pounce until you're head feels like it's going to explode. It's dizzying how creative people are, the things being bought and the sheer volume of purchases going through this site in a steady stream from all over the globe.

Happy homemade weekend & have fun on etsy this week!
