    Beautiful work, nelladesigns! I sold cup cozies like hotcakes - a few on etsy and many to friends who wanted something inexpensive and simple to mail. One person ordered 15 cup cozies as a small Christmas gift for her coworkers! http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=36356241

    Congratulations nelladesigns! One of my best sellers was this personalized name necklace.. http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=36977606 It was designed to have your children's names stamped on the charms. I think it did well because it made for a very unique and special gift for any Mom.

    Congrats NellaDesigns! I launched a new scent, Vamped this December and the response was really positive. It is a girly, yet edgy scent that combines bruised violets with black tea. In fact, it has become one of my favorite perfume oils to wear! http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=36270258

    Congratulation to the winner! Our recent bestseller and Oh!.. and Ah!.. item is our eco-friendly Organic cotton and relaxing herbs scented Computer Keyboard Wrist Rest and Mouse Support Pillow set with Lavender (or Peppermint, Chamomile, Rose or Marjoram). We have two types - with removable covers http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=37412144 and without removable covers for $5 less http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=37020012 I think they did pretty well because they are unique and the only one on Etsy that has both Organic herbs and fabric. We and the customers love the set so much - it help hands lessen the strains and relax mind while working on the computer. Everybdy deserves and needs this Organic aromatherapy treat! :)

    Congratulations Nelladesigns! Here's to a more organized decade for all of us! I was fortunate and had what I thought was a good holiday season this year. A lot of people liked my charm key wristlets. I think that they were so popular since they are practical and that was in the air this holiday season, but still very special and pretty. An everyday accessory that has that little extra something is an affordable and guilt-free way to add luxury to your life. Many buyers bought a few so that they could keep one while giving the others as gifts. Two examples are: http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=37226174 http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=35717319

    Congrats, Nelladesigns! My Bicycle Gear Cuff Links did really well this holiday season: http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=37283616 I think perhaps because there are so few items for men in the jewelry category and the sports themed item has a contemporary feel to it that's pretty popular!

    Ooo! I love all of the items pictured. My shop has a great holiday success. I opened my shop in November of this year, just in time for the holiday madness! I was surprised and THRILLED when I just had my 100th sale this past week. I could never have even dreamed that I would have so much ETSY success in such a short amount of time. One of my items, my "Kristen" coaster set has especially had continued success http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=36479273 . I believe it's been popular because of the color combination. My bohemian sets have become quite in demand as well: http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=36484230 My cards have also had great success. http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=36056882 . I believe that the prices are unbeatable (10 for $10). I'm excited for what the new year will bring!

    Congrats to all! My sales this holiday season were extremely high, more than I had sold all year. Most were custom orders. I attribute this to my ring in the under 50 Gift Guide. It brought me tremendous exposure! I don't know if I would have sold as much if my ring had not been featured there. I was very happy, and because of this, I've established a really good customer base and I've already had repeat customers....which of course makes me extremely happy!

    Congratulations NellaDesigns - your calendar is wonderful! This season I did well with my Cardinal crown headband - http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=34369187 and these little birds have new homes in NYC, NC, CA, WA, UK and points in between, with favorable customer feedback. I wore my own headband in a crosscountry trip during a winter storm last week, and heard comments on how festive it was from dozens of passengers, airline crew and people in airport. Guess it puts a smile on a persons face and makes them forget for a second the wicked weather, hacking seatmates, etc.

    pickleberries says:

    Congrats to nelladesigns! Dangle earrings were the clear winner in my shop this holiday season and the millefiori pieces sold over the solid pieces. My feeling is that they were popular because they're a bit of vibrant, fun color which can be worn when you also are wearing an id tag on a lanyard to work, unlike a pendant on a necklace, and my earrings are also a reasonably priced gift. A pair similar to these were one of my holiday sales... http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=27005664

    I am not going to link to my items, I just want to say that since I began making bird feeders out of upcycled, previously used materials-they sell very well! And I have a new unbleached dish towel design where I printed my usual bird print but this year added stars and it looks super cool and sold very well. The towels I can always make more but my bird feeders are becoming rare because of the materials I use. I do believe that nature and honest, eco friendly, hand made themed is always good, for every season and always worth celebrating. That is how I run my shop-wouldn't have it any other way.

    Congrats. to Nelladesigns! The item from my shop that sold really well was my "HEDGIE" necklace. I sold all that I had (9) of them and wished I had more. I now have them back in stock and available for purchase. I think the reason they did so well was that it was a charm necklace, under $50.00 and very whimsical. I also hit on the "woodland" theme which was obviously very popular this season. Here's the link: http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=37265168 Happy new Year!!!

    Lovely choice by the voters! Although I'm by no means a power seller, this December I had the most sales in one month ever! And about half those sales were pieces of jewelry with green stones. Green is the color for success, good luck, or money. We just went through a really rough year, economically speaking, and I'm thinking there are a lot of people out there that are looking for a little good luck for 2010!

    Luxurious dramatic felt mustaches - http://www.etsy.com/search_results_shop.php?search_type=user_shop_ttt_id_22903&search_query=mustache They did well for me before Halloween, figured that would be it; however, they were popular as Christmas gifts too it seems. On Christmas day I received a convo from a lovely customer, who had purchased one mustache as a gift for her brother, requesting another one because this gift "was such a big hit that it has caused an outbreak of 'stache jealousy." How fun to hear that. They sell because of course, lots of us are enamored with moustaches. In addition these are 3 D, large, dramatic, with great flair and character; also well constructed -- and did I mention fun to wear. :D Definitely fun to wear! It has been a joy to make and sell these.

    Congratulations, nelladesigns! Wonderful work, well deserved victory! This was my first holiday season on Etsy and it was GREAT! I had three favorites (may I call them my bestsellers?): Cup Cozy in Honey: http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=37033395 (ones in Wine Red, Blue, and Purple sold out wonderfully too) Cabled Moccasin Slippers: http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=31041278 And Cotton Newsboy Hat: http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=28534768 I believe they succeed due to a very reasonable price, high quality, unique design, and vivid colors warm and cheer up a cold and gloomy winter day. I got fantastic letters and wonderful feedbacks about these items, many of them made perfet holiday gifts. One little girl received a beautiful doll for Christmas while her sister got a cup cozy from my shop. That girl cried and wanted the same cup cozy, just like her sister's. Their mom contacted me to order another cup cozy with overnight shipping. Those are the moments that I cherish... Thank you so much, my current and future customers! And thank you, Etsy!

    Whimsy and woodland hats were big sellers this holiday season. Not only did they sell quickly but I got very nice compliments on quality and customer service.

There is such magic that surrounds the holidays and I think the whimsical and woodland themes are natural choices for young and old alike who appreciate buying handmade. Here is an example of a couple that fit whimsy and woodland: http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=35796661 http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=36569987 Happy Merry to all! ~ Bridget

    I have just started on etsy (listed first items in September) and this holiday season was quite successful for me. I think, my special crocheted necklaces / bracelets were quite a success. these two items were statistically the best: the red berries necklace http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=37432427 - offline it was sold in crazy amounts! and online this was a best seller: enchanted necklace http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=36184546

My biggest sellers this season were my Pearl Strand earrings. http://www.etsy.com/shop/ThePeachTree?section_id=5706728 I think their prices probably had something to do with their popularity but I also found I had MANY male customers this go around. And men must think women like pearls :) which is not such a terrible assumption!

This sweet elephant doll was our best seller this Christmas: http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=37486960 We think it's a combination between a good product and a good price, This sweetheart was also on December GG so We guess it had something to do with it also...who knows... we're constantly sewing up new ones!

It's a photo of the pop up keys from an antique cash register that I took apart. Perfect wedding gift!

    Beautiful calendar! Congrats nelladesigns! My best seller this holiday season on etsy has been custom designs. http://www.etsy.com/view_transaction.php?transaction_id=23607479 I design art prints inspired by music. I encourage my customers to come up with a song or lyric that is particularly special to them or the recipient and commission a design. I've had great success with my pre-designed prints as everyone loves music and sometimes you find just that one special piece but my custom pieces have been a hit seller this season! http://www.etsy.com/shop/bjwCREATIVE

    Congratulations to Nelladesigns!! Love your calendar! I did very well this holiday season..thanks to everyone and ETSY for promoting my items! My best-sellers in the past couple months: Quote in a Bottle Pendants (especially this "Pinky Promise" quote) - people loved the quotes..and they came wrapped in my original mini fabric wrap bags that I had initially designed to give extra protection during shipping, but were perfect for gift giving too! http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=37206625 Bunch of Stars (faith, hope, love) - the stars are made in slightly different shapes to make them a little more interesting.. and the neutral colour and the fact that the words are tied on and can be replaced allows the stars to be displayed year-round. Plus, they were in two gift guides, which I think really helped also! http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=33686741 Thank you!!

From Sept through December, I sold 26 pairs of this particular style! http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=36677254 I had a lot of lovely feedback about them. Why were they so popular? I think my photography on these helped as well as giving them a really seasonal feel. Fall is my favorite season, so bringing the season into my work probably makes my work better.
