Check out our Etsy market data base page


This webpage contains further information:

  • more information about each store (such as selling speed and shipment costs);

  • additional stores in all 8 categories of Etsy including smaller stores.

  • sorting and ranking by items and keywords

Conclusions:


Most important store keywords are:

Wedding, Jewelry, Women, Gifts, Greetings and self expression, and Craft supplies (Zipper, Leather, Stickers, Stone, beads, yarns, etc). The top four stores says it all. The top four categories are: Jewelry, craft supplies and wedding.


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.
