    Not bad. School's out and folks travel or just want to be outdoors enjoying summer. Many have asked, as I have too, for a stats breakdown of sales per category: Handmade, Vintage and Supplies. Is that on the horizon, soon?

    It's really great that Etsy provides this information for us. It would be awesome to be able to view it in a form like our individual shop stats where we can see specific time frames and overall stats in graph form for comparisons. Weeding through the written content in past weather reports is a bit tedious and trends are harder to spot.

    This is interesting information. I think that this helps me stay positive about the global marketplace and hope the summer heat encourages people to sell and shop!

    Thank you so much for this information. I sell on Etsy since 2009 and it's exciting to see Etsy grow so fast.

    WOW - I'm shocked! This June was my 2nd worst month, to date, on Etsy. June 2012 was one of my absolute best months of all time, on Etsy. Interesting!

    I always like to get the calculator out with the Etsy Weather Reports and it's always good to see the average sale $ increasing month by month. In a time of recession, that's to be celebrated!

    Interesting figures. But would it be possible to give an accurate comparison and compare June 2013 with June 2012? May vs June is nice but its really not providing that much information.

    Wow, this is interesting. I've never been to the blogs before. I just started my shop in March,so really don't have much to compare anything to... yet....

    I agree with Martha Johnson and Glenda - charts and graphs would be great! I also have a question: Is someone still doing upcoming trend forecasts? I must be missing them if they are being posted. Thanks!

    Where are the Merchandising Desk reports? Those were helpful?

  • Untwistedsister

    Terri from Untwistedsister said 4 years ago

    It would be nice to have the information broken down by vintage, handmade, supplies and average price per item.

  • rachbing

    Rachel Bingaman from BingArt said 4 years ago

    Thanks for the report! I agree that it would be nice to see a comparison between June 2012 and June 2013 as well as May 2013. Would be great to have that insight :)

    Great to know! My only thought is it would be great if these stats were easier to access from the seller's home page :-) Yall rock!

    sono nuova e leggendo che Etsy sta in crescita mi fa molto piacere........ora che ho scoperto questo report........darò un occhiatina sempre...... :)

  • Vintagerous

    J Rose from Vintagerous said 4 years ago

    Love seeing the big picture! So encouraging!! One stat I'd like to see added to this report: # of new stores opened (broken into the broad categories would be good - handmade, vintage and supplies). # of members includes people that join just to shop so it would be interesting to know how many shops opened.

    Sheryl from HandPaintedPetals said 4 years ago

    I really appreciate being able to see these reports -- very important and helpful info! It's good to be part of a vibrant community!

  • SwirlingOrange11

    SwirlingOrange11 from SwirlingOrange11 said 4 years ago

    I am a bit confused by this report since my views are up 2.5 times from last year at this time as well as last month's views but sales are down 75% from last year in this time frame and about 68% down from last month. Just wonder if the break down could be posted.

  • butterfliwings

    Kathy Major from Wine2The9s said 4 years ago

    Thanks for the info! I have been very disappointed lately with sales (or lack of!) this gives me some hope that there are buyers out there...I just have to connect with them. I would love more of a breakdown of the stats as well....any information we have to work with gives us all a better chance for success!
