Most important store keywords are:
Wedding, Jewelry, Women, Gifts, Greetings and self expression, and Craft supplies (Zipper, Leather, Stickers, Stone, beads, yarns, etc).
The majority of Etsy customers is 18-24 year old women. None of the top stores sell man related items. (But don't worry, there are plenty of stores selling those, as I will review later). Two exceptions are puzzles for children and crafting supplies for seniors.
However, the majority of shop owners are man (57%) with age of 25-34.
