Etsy made some updates to three categories this month, including to its Roller Skates Accessories category. The last time it updated categories was in February.
In addition to updates in skates, Etsy made changes to its Craft Machine Files category. It also added three new categories to Home & Living, which is an important area of focus for the marketplace. It is kicking off its first-ever All Things Home Sales Event on Friday, May 27, which will run through Thursday, June 2. (Shoppers with the Etsy mobile app will have exclusive, early access to the sale starting Thursday, May 26th.)
