Etsy updated listing categories and attributes, which it does periodically based on user feedback and its own research. Not only is it important for sellers to see the changes, but they may also help sellers identify trends.
For example, in Home & Living, Etsy added Gothic as a Style attribute, and in Wedding theme, it added Art Deco.
Under Accessories and Bags & Purses, Etsy added the following categories: Hat Pins & Stick Pins and Pill Boxes. The latter has nothing to do with hat styles. Etsy explains, “Pill Box is a new category for things like pill organizers you might carry with you on the go.” Etsy also added a dedicated Medicine Cabinet category for items meant to be used to store medicines.
On Etsy, you can buy kitchen sink caddies, but also the kitchen sink! This month Etsy added a “Sinks & Basins” category under Plumbing, along with “Faucets, Handles & Showerheads” and “Plumbing Pipes and Fittings.”
