Mar 14, 2011

by sinoheterrero handmade and vintage goods

For many people, nothing says “I love you” like a thoughtful, handmade gift. That explains why items sold like hotcakes in February. So while you continue smooching last month’s valentine (or maybe you have already have a new one!), check out the stats for February:

  • $34.4 million of goods were sold by our community in February, 2.7% higher than January’s $33.49 million
  • That represents 1,850,525 items sold for the month, 0.4% higher than January’s 1,843,043.
  • 1,722,237 new items were listed in the month, 8.1% lower than January’s 1,873,165.
  • 360,396 new members joined the Etsy community in the month, down 12,980, or 3.5%, from January.
  • 994,179,094 page views were recorded on the site in February.

The $34.4 million of goods sold by the community represents a 70% increase from February 2010’s total. At the same time, items sold were up 56%.

    Holy cow! Those are incredible stats. I know my sales were better than expected through January and February, and I implemented a few new business strategies. Does Etsy forecast projections ahead of time (i.e. what you expect sales to be in March)?

    It's hard to get your head round 400,000 people joining every month... 400,000 new potential customers, friends & sources of inspiration. I was expecting a drop in sales after xmas, but that didn't happen & I've been as busy as ever... long may it continue! And thank you to the behind-the-scenes crew at Etsy for making it all work so well for so many people.

  • kristincoffin

    kristincoffin said 5 years ago

    70% up is insane! But I completely agree. My sales have been higher the last two months than they were during the Christmas season even. The first quarter of the year has proven to be my busiest season--and it was always said to be the slowest in the retail world. I'm loving these stats, and as others have said above: I'm booked until summer with orders already!
