Etsy Statistics: Etsians through the Ages handmade and vintage goods

An oft asked question in the Forums is, “How old are Etsians?”

Well, in response to that, I began a thread specifically to collect this data from the forum thread.  Then I charted the results in Flickr.

After two months of data collection from over a thousand people, the average age of the responding Etsians consistently remains at 34, with the median being 32. Each of the 22 times I’ve updated the chart, this is the result. The youngest answering is 13, with the oldest being 73. Wow! Etsy is providing the opportunity for so many to sell Handmade!
