Favorite Lists: Collect to Your Heart’s Content

Jun 25, 2013

by Heather Burkman

Etsy.com handmade and vintage goods

Update 9/09: Good news — we’ve added the option to make lists private, a request we heard when we originally launched Favorite Lists. Simply go into a list, and click the “Edit” button at the top right, to change the list’s privacy setting.

Collecting is certainly not a new concept on Etsy — in fact, members have been gathering their favorite shops and items since the very beginning of the site. With an endless supply of inspiring, fun and covetable pieces on Etsy, it’s no surprise that Favorites continues to be a popular feature, with 1,000 items being favorited every minute!

We’re now introducing Favorite Lists, allowing you to organize your favorites in sets that fit your collection needs. Whether you’re gathering decor ideas for your home, saving a wish list, or sorting items by more creative themes and motifs, Favorite Lists makes collecting easy and organized.

Here’s how it works:

Find an item you like.
It can be anywhere! On the homepage, a shop’s page, in Search and Browse…

Listing_Card

Add it to a list, or create a new one.
By clicking the heart, the item will be added to your default Favorites list, “Items I Love,” for fast collecting. By clicking on the list button, you can add the item to another list, or create a new list on the fly. How you choose to sort your favorites is entirely up to you, so have fun with it!

Rinse and repeat.
After you’re finished, you can peruse your Favorite Lists by clicking on the heart button in the site-wide navigation bar:

Favorite_Lists

If you’re already an avid Favorites collector, you’ll find your existing favorite items in your first list, “Items I Love” — you can now sort these if you wish, or begin new lists from scratch. That’s it, you’ll soon be on your way to having your own personalized collections to shop and share!

Want more inspiration? Follow your favorite curators!
By following your friends or other members whose favorites match your taste, you will be updated on their curation through your activity feed.

So how will you collect and curate your favorite items? We’d love to know! Link to your Favorite Lists in the comments below and share your collection strategy. We’ll be highlighting members’ lists throughout the next few weeks through the blog, Facebook, Twitter and Etsy’s shopping newsletters.

    This will be incredibly useful. Will the items added to specific lists show up in the Shop Owner's feed? For example, if somebody adds one of my wedding hangers to a list called "Wedding 2014" will it still show up in my feed and stats like a "regular" favorite does?

  • PreciousPastimes

    Jennifer from RomantiquarianDesign said 3 years ago

    I LOVE this idea - I've been wanting to be able to organize my favorites for a long time. Unfortunately, I just discovered that I can't make my new custom lists private like the main list, so I won't be able to use this feature like I'd hoped. Please give us the option of making all of our lists private. Thank you! :-)

  • RoughMagicCreations

    Mollie Ann Meserve from RoughMagicCreations said 3 years ago

    WHOA there! I posted my previous comment before I realized the new lists would be public unless I set all my faves to private. So ... this feature isn't nearly as useful as I'd thought it would be.

  • minouette

    Ele from minouette said 3 years ago

    Yay! Great improvement thanks! (Allowing some listings to be private would allow be great so that no one buys me the things I add to my favorites so I can get them for someone else)

    I'm enjoying this feature so far, will be playing more when I have more time! I would also like the ability to make a private list; that would be the icing on the cake. But I'll settle for being able to organize my favourites, it'll certainly make Treasury creation much easier!

  • TaBouTreasures

    Great new feature, would love to have it apply to shops as well, not just items :)

  • themefragrance

    Theme Fragrance from themefragrance said 3 years ago

    Is there a PRIVACY feature. The concept is good, but shoppers do not want all their lists public for holiday gift list creating. And frankly I like PRIVACY - not everything has to be public and or shared!

  • newhopebeading

    newhopebeading from newhopebeading said 3 years ago

    Oh good idea Beth... private lists would be great for say holiday shopping lists when you don't want family and friends to see what you are thinking of getting them!

  • twobadbananas

    twobadbananas from twobadbananas said 3 years ago

    Yep yep yep, I was saying this last week on my other account - I want a privacy option. Othereise they're all going back in the one list I can make private, and I'll be waiting for Blugrin to bring The Favoritizer App back. If Etsy continue to push the link with facebook and the Newsfeed style of interaction, how else can you make secret shopping lists for friends at Christmas?

  • JeanieBeanHandknits

    Jeanie B from JeanieBeanHandKnits said 3 years ago

  • SerendipityCandle

    SerendipityCandle from SerendipityCandle said 3 years ago

    I don't like that all lists can't be made private and the fact that Shmetsy doesn't work the way it did anymore. If these things were fixed it might be very useful. I deleted my lists until then.

  • vertzvkv

    VKV from vertzvkv said 3 years ago

    Nice idea, however, with no privacy option, I will not use it at all. I see the need for it, but only if all of it is private. It seems these days on the internet that everything is going public, and in my mind, this is crazy wrong. Etsy needs to remember that it is a site venue for crafts and arts people to sell their wares and it is not Pinterest where people pick out everything they like and organize it to the max and share it with the world. Etsy needs to do more to help its sellers make money. That is how etsy will also make more money.

  • vertzvkv

    VKV from vertzvkv said 3 years ago

    Nice idea, however, I won't use it at all due to the lists not being private. The concept on the internet today is that everything is public and this is crazy wrong. Etsy is a venue for crafts and arts people to sell their wares. Etsy has kindly helped its vendors use social media to help show off their wares to the world, however, it needs to remember that it is not Pinterest. I think having everything about my shop and me being public is a little too much for me to bear. This is the reason I quit Facebook. It is too public and too complicated to not be public. Etsy needs to help its vendors SELL their wares and to make money. In the end, Etsy will make more money by doing so. I wish Etsy would focus on this aspect instead of trying to become something else. Etsy is a wonderful venue and I love it, but sometimes I think they lose focus.

  • acuriousbrood

    acuriousbrood from acuriousbrood said 3 years ago

    A private shopping list would be very nice and quite useful too.

  • beadedwire

    beadedwire from beadedwire said 3 years ago

    Completely useless since the lists are public. (And I wish I had been warned about this. ) The only result for me is that I can't use Shmetsy to make treasuries. I feel like crying. Why do you work so hard to make our lives harder?

  • splashings

    splashings from splashings said 3 years ago

    Just noticed the change yesterday and decided to read a bit more about it this morning. It seems the only list that is private is the big jumbled one "Items I love" as it's always been. Any custom lists are public and can't be made private. Was excited at first at the chance after 5 years to finally be able to sort my favorites into useful categories, but it was short lived once I read those lists could not be kept private, ugh... Come on etsy, if one list can be private, and some of us want it that way, why can't the sorted lists be private? So, to me the only change is that I now have to click twice to see my favorites which annoys me and I can't sort them because I want my favorites to be just that, "My favorites."

  • WackyWanitas

    WackyWanitas from WackyWanitaDesigns said 3 years ago

  • RevolutionClothingCo

  • moosasa

    Cherish McNamara from cherishablesnj said 3 years ago

    I *love* this idea! I can't wait to start curating my favorites. I have to admit, sometimes I enjoy just sifting through my favorites and remembering what was going on in my life when I "favorited" (is that a word?) something. More of often than not, however, I am looking for something in particular so this will really help me. Plus, I'm a list-maker at heart so this speaks to that part of me as well. Love! I just saw a comment about making certain lists private -- what a great idea! That will help me to keep my gift lists a secret. I would very much like to see that option one day.

    Thank you! We have been asking for the ability to categorize favorites for a long time! I have a lot of organizing to do, but I'll start by creating a list for future treasuries, a list of favorites from TEAMT, a gift list (I'd love to be able to make this one private so my friends and family don't know what I'm considering as gifts for them) and my own wish list so my family doesn't have to ask what I want for Christmas, my birthday and Mother's Day! :)

    Lynelle Miliate-Ha from FalconandFinch said 3 years ago

    Lists has become my favorite etsy function so far! Shopping and "collecting" has become so much easier, now that I can sort as I go. I love it! I do most of my gifting from etsy - so it's been awesome to put my manly and romantic finds in a list for my husband, baby things, general gifting for friends and family, endless possibilities. I even created a little list of things I love for myself, which should make my husband's life easier (and hopefully, I will never again receive a "tactical backpack" for a wedding anniversary...) Thank you, etsy. You have made my life easier. https://www.etsy.com/people/FalconandFinch/favorites?ref=si_fav

  • winkhandmade

    winkhandmade from winkhandmade said 3 years ago

    Browsing through my etsy favourites is one of my favourite things to do. I probably won't use the new feature straight off as I kind of enjoy the mixed up craziness of all the items together - they're always provide a bit of a visual feast.... I do think it's a really useful and logical feature, though, and in fact I would use it much more readily if it were available for "Shops" rather than "Items". Marina :)

  • antiqueDD

    DD said 3 years ago

    Great news, this feature was long overdue, however, I completely agree with the need for an option for fave lists to go private. For many reasons, it is essential . Once that feature is in place, we can geek out even more with our list making!

  • selkielassie

    Jennie from SelkieMum said 3 years ago

    I am so excited, been waiting for this for a long time. :D I'm sure people think I'm favoriting willy nilly because I've favorited and not bought, but in reality, I just can't find things with so many favorites. Being able to sort will help sooooo much.

  • emclarkhms

    Emily from emclarkhms said 3 years ago

    I'm excited about being able to sort my many pages of favorites. it sure helps me relocate things i saved for birthday gifts, etc. on the other hand, i wish that as i switched items to a new created list they would disappear from the giant favorites list. as i'm sorting i have to keep revisiting the same pages because i can't remember if i've added everything.

  • dottywalker

    Dotty Walker from SewThoughtfulBlanket said 3 years ago

    Such a great idea! I'll have to give it a try!

  • FunDeco

    Heather Stearns from FunDeco said 3 years ago

    Sounds like a great idea. I'll have a "gifts for family" list, and a "gifts for friends" list so when Christmas and birthdays come around, I'll be able to quickly find all those things I favorited because they looked like great gift ideas. Maybe a list of "pass this on to so-and-so" when I find something I know a friend will love, but not something I would buy for them. The ultimate window shopping!

  • whateverworks

    Andrea Nichole Still from WhateverWorks said 3 years ago

    This makes sense. At first, I wasn't sure, because it seams like every time I get used to a system somebody changes it. But I think this is a good idea. I can use it to sort future treasuries! Right now, I do that w/ a pen and paper and it's a bit of a pain.

  • wornwires

    Ashlee Moore from WornWiresJewelry said 3 years ago

    Making treasury lists is so much fun! Whenever I get bored (or want to procrastinate), I find myself searching through Etsy listings and finding new items to "treasure."

  • dreamerawake

    Tania from DreamerAwake said 3 years ago

    Thanks for the feature; I've wanted this for a long time. Two things, though: 1. I agree that we need to be able to make some lists private. I already had mine set to "private" so I *think* my newer lists are all private, too. But it would be nice to be able to set them individually. 2. My new lists are sorted by date of creation instead of alpha. I've tried rearranging them, but with no success. When I look for a particular list, I am not going to remember (or care) which one I created first, fourth, or last. I look for them alphabetically and it's a hassle to read through every single list title to find the one I want. (Am I missing something here? Seems like common sense that they'd either auto-alphabetize or that we could rearrange them. Dismaying to find neither is possible.) Thanks. Other than those points, I really appreciate this new feature.

    "Currently, your custom lists can't be made private. " But keeping lists private was the whole point of me WANTING custom lists. I want to be able to keep gift lists for friends and family, but don't want them to be able to SEE what I'm thinking of getting them. For this very reason, I don't tell people how to find my list, because it's chock-full of possible gifts for THEM, or they'll get confused and think (for instance) I collect squirrels, because my list is full of ideas for my friend Kelly. PLEASE make the lists private!!!!!

    I guess it is like Pinterest for Etsy. I am so confused now on favorites and followers and likes and now more lists. Hmmm... Not to mention treasuries.

    Erin Fletcher from HerringboneBindery said 3 years ago

    I was so elated when I logged into Etsy and saw that lists became a new feature in my favorites section! I love lists and I've already used all 25 boards. I've separated items by the area on the body where the product will be featured, for example, necks, ears, fingers, etc. http://www.etsy.com/people/herringbonebindery/favorites?ref=si_fav

    Jacqueline Crowther from LocalColorCreations said 3 years ago

    I LOVE this feature! Now I get to organize all the inspiration and gift ideas I find during "discovery mode" that I might not have seen again without sifting through dozens of pages of favorites. This will make treasury-curating a breeze. http://www.etsy.com/people/localCOLORcreations/favorites/

    Love this feature, as I often make my treasuries based on my favorites. Having things organized makes this easier.

    OK! I just posted a treasury from my "wood" category/list of favorites. Title: Wood If I Could https://www.etsy.com/treasury/MjE5MzMzNTZ8MjcyNDY4Nzc0Ng/wood-if-i-could?index=0&atr_uid=

    If the item is sold and I want to remove it from my list - where now is the 'X" so that I can delete sold items? Surely there should be a way to remove and item on your list?!!

  • AuntSoup

    Susan Sorrell Hill from SusanSorrellHill said 3 years ago

    I'd love the option to change the titles of my Favorites Lists...even better, to arrange the items *within* a shop, the way I can when creating a Treasury. And count me in for the desire to make some lists Private if I choose. Overall, a great new feature on Etsy!

  • StudioSuzanna

    Izabela from StudioSuzanna said 3 years ago

    It's really great option. It took me some time to reorganize my old favourites but now I have everything sorted by colour or theme. I like that one thing can be add to a few lists. This feature really helps me to make treasuries faster. Thanks! You can check my lists here: http://www.etsy.com/people/StudioSuzanna/favorites?ref=si_fav

  • Cate416

    Cate said 3 years ago

    I am trying to arrange my lists in alphabetical order, but they keep on rearranging themselves! This is very frustrating because it's easier for me to read things A-Z instead of by common titles or something.

  • sartorialistas

    Jackie from ModernGhostBK said 3 years ago

    Fantastic feature! I especially love that I can now add and categorize items without clogging my followers activity feeds. Perhaps in the future we can choose to follow specific lists à la Pinterest? http://www.etsy.com/people/sartorialistas/favorites?ref=si_fav

  • jennylupe

    Jenny said 3 years ago

    I have the same issue as Cate...it's driving me crazy to not be able to alphabetize the lists! I love having them, don't get me wrong, but the librarian in me is getting OCD-twitchy when I look for a particular list.

  • armelledavies

    Armelle Davies said 3 years ago

    Damn I have been waiting for this feature for soooo long. It's so hard to find anything in your favourites when you've got about 50 pages of them

  • masonbee

    masonbee said 3 years ago

    How do I sort my favorite shops alphabetically so they're easier to find find?

  • SouthernBelleOOAK

    Lynn from SouthernBelleOOAK said 3 years ago

    This is a great improvement. Will we ever be able to search by SHOP, instead of just item? Many times I add items to favorites at different times for a particular shop. When I am ready to order, I would like to be able to pull them all up in search. It would increase sales because I wouldn't forget an item that may be buried further back on my favorites list. P L E A S E!

  • chieflady

    Jenny Zhuang from Chieflady said 3 years ago

    OK! This is quite convenient for sorting different "favorite". ETSY keeps moving!! So should I.

    I love the new way that we can organize a list with our favorites because I have so many favorites and now I can put them in a certain list or catagory.

  • GemdropsoftheFalls

    GemdropsoftheFalls from GemdropsoftheFalls said 2 years ago

    FINALLY!! Thank you so much for creating this feature! We tried to organize and save things in order in the past, but it'll be much easier to go right to the list. :) So relieved to have more organization!

    I absolutely love this new feature, but I can't figure out how to use it on mobile. Does anyone know how?

  • CarolAnnsTole

    Carol from CarolAnnsTole said 2 years ago

    I just found out about this feature....I think it's just super. I haven't tried it yet. I have a gazillion in my favorites and it's a jumbled list of wonderful items. This will make me feel much more organized and help me find items I want to purchase from other buyers when needed. Now....to figure out how to do this....

  • CarolAnnsTole

    Carol from CarolAnnsTole said 2 years ago

    I love this feature, just found out about it today....but I reached the limit of 25 favorites, and now what do I do? Think we'll have more than this in the future? I hope so...

  • CarolAnnsTole

    Carol from CarolAnnsTole said 2 years ago

    You said....collect to your hearts content....so, what is this that I can only have 25 categories? Now I don't know how to change a category name for some of my other favorites. Hmm? I think this needs a bit more homework.....Also, it would be nice to send us a note when you change something on this. I do like it so far, but lots of questions from what I've been reading here.

  • Cjk0x

    Cassie Keefer said 2 years ago

    Okay, wellll.... I loved that I could do this and organize things but now I can't find ANYTHING on the phone app????? It wont show me ANY of my lists on my phone. It's impossible to try and share my account when no one can see anything.
