  1. I love those old-fashioned crochet dress dishcloths. My DM used to make them all the time. I've "hearted" you so I can get some when I can afford it; I crochet, but I know I will not even try to make those.

  9. My main suggestion is to remove the featured category if you only have 1 page of products. It makes it easier to sort through. :)

    I like how your specials stand out! And I like how you have everything separated by category instead of one big category.

  21. Hello, Hello, Carol! :D
    First of all...love your crocheted goodness over at Etsy! You've got such bright colors and whimsical designs. :) Those knooking hooks really intrigue me...I can't imagine how you would use them for sock making??
    I think you might think about adding some little white rounds for cotton pad replacements and maybe some fingerless mitts and scarves...especially as the summer progresses and we get into fall. ;) Just some ideas...Hugs!

  43. Hi Carol!

    I really like the content of your Etsy shop. I'm a huge fan of all things crochet - or I should say most things (lots can be done with crochet - some of it pretty strange).

    I think your photos could benefit from a consistent background. White is the most common and will also give you a greater chance of being featured on the front page.

    I think the photos that were taken in natural daylight add a lot more to the photos. Often photos taken indoors under artificial light (household lamps, ceiling lighting, etc) and flash lighting end up looking really flat and washed out. That in turn makes them item in the photo less vibrant and interesting to look at.

    Honestly, I think that if you tweaked your photos just a little you would get more traffic and sales and could charge much more for your work!

    Hope that helps!

  47. Wow!! Your items are beautiful and I can't believe your prices!! I mean that's just enough to cover the cost of the yarn, and not much else. I used to love to crochet, seeing your beautiful items makes me want to take it up again. :) Love the fiesta placemats. Very colorful and fun!

  48. I think your shop is great like it is. You may want to display the items on a simple background so that they become the center of attention.

  53. I checked out your etsy shop. I like that it is clean and user friendly. It is not busy busy like many other sites but I think it is a bit stark and could use a little more color. I like that you are doing your own thing. More power to you!

  68. I also like the handmade Crochet Cotton Fiesta placemats. They would go nicely on a tablescape with Fiesta ware and other colorful dishware.

    LOL, at first I thought you were selling the signs that said reserved. I can be a ding bat at times. I just have to laugh at myself.
