the photos are a good quality overall.

I would suggest using a macro photo as the first photo.
example http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=14370629 use the 4th picture you have there.

1. This will make the items more clickable. I suggest not using the photos with the items on a model for a first photo, 2nd 3rd or 4th is fine.

 and 2. makes the shop look more cohesive.

the tags look good but I suggest using your shop name as a tag on all your items so that if someone not familiar with etsy can still find you without knowing how to change the search feature to sellers.
Especially important if people just search you on google and forgot that the shop is on etsy.

Trying! I am trying to keep my prices way reasonable and I think I laid it out okay, I think the fact that I am totally unphotogenic doesn't help!

Maybe I should find a model, but I don't want to shell out more money and not make any

Please critique the crap out of me

I have reopened my shop after almost a year of non-selling(moving, etc.) and am not really selling. I sold one wedding dress that had been listed last year. Is my style of clothing dated? Do I not fit etsy's style? Is it a promotion issue? I've been doing just about what I did before, but not getting hearts or views like before. Just trying to decide if I am still 'right' for etsy.

I have been putting in some new things as I make them and lots of the things I have left from before the move. New dresses on the way, but I'm not sure it's a good fit for me as a venue. Any ideas on what I'm not seeing?

I think your shop is great!  Especially the magenta polka dot dress, that is gorgeous.  If I needed a dress I would buy it in a minute.  Wink  Your photos are great too.  I would have to say all your items are front page worthy of etsy.  How you actually get there, I wish I could answer. 

Etsy is slow for a lot of people, but then some are selling like mad.  The only thing I could think of is to offer a larger array of sizes/prices.  Maybe that would help.  With a listing being only 20 cents for four months, it isn't too big an investment is the way I look at it.

Good luck and I wish you many sales!   Cheesy

crafty gurll - Thanks for taking a look. I'm not sure how to get noticed there either and Front page seems far, far away. I'll take a look at my stuff and see if I can find some things to widen my prices and sizes range. I love your shop. The Toad house is tres cute!

Thanks for taking a look!  Pictures are the bane of my existence, but they are slowly improving.   Wink

Cowls seem to be very very big, they are always on the front page.  If you can make a few of those you might get noticed.  If you do find out the secret, please let me know!   Cheesy
