Meet Virginia

Virginia from MadeByHand is hosting our sneak attack today at 3pm.

I asked Virginia to give us some tips on how to find her 'victims'. She is one of our 'treasury gurus' so she has a good handle on how to find those new Etsy shops! Says Virginia:

I spend a lot of time with my pal Snoopy789, checking out Snoopy's favorites and I always find one or two of my shops there. I also look at the "new shop" teams and check out their newest members. But mostly I look for items the old-fashioned way, using Etsy's search function.

I may search for a word I like (for example, "prairie") then I go to the category that interests me. If I am looking for a soap shop, then I go to the Bath and Beauty category and start looking! And I look at the feedback - low sometimes means low sales.

All these tips that our hosts provide will help any new members who are thinking about being a host!! Jump right in.

I often browse Virginia's shop looking for the perfect gift. I love this vibrant scarf - don't you?

Be sure to check out Virginia's shop - she is always creating something new!

And come join us in our Sneak Attack thread today - as we try to guess who the 'victims' will be!
