Etsy Statistics: 2 Million Items Sold

Dec 10, 2007


by Vanessa Bertozzi handmade and vintage goods

On December 8th, 2007, the 2 millionth item on Etsy sold.  It was this lovely chicken by BossysFeltworks (send us your address and we’ll send you a wee gifty!).

This is cause for celebration over here at the Etsy Labs. But what we’re really happy about is the trend: it took two years to sell the first million. After that high water mark, it only took four months to sell the next million items. Who knows what the future holds?

Congrats to all the sellers out there who are making this happen! And thanks to RD for getting me the info 😉

    Holy shizit! That is quite impressive, from 2 years to 4 months. Do we know who sold the 2 millionth? It would be fun to recognize that seller. If it were me, I'd want to know.

    Well everyone, we think its pretty hilarious that our chicken with yellow boots was the two milionth. We had no idea that Etsy has had so many sales. We just got started on Etsy last week and really, really appreciate all that Etsy has to offer. It has been a great way for us to offer holiday items to out-of-state customers who met us at our local farmer's market this summer(and signed up on our "emailing list"), not to mention the new customers coming to us from Etsy. Now we'll have to try for the three millionth item sold... coming in just a couple of months - right???
