I just read this and had to share the info with you. I think that it is quite amazing. This is for all of you who love Etsy, (me included). March was another stimulating month for Etsy's marketplace's growth. Here are the numbers:
•$22.4 million of goods were sold by our community in March, roughly 11% higher than February's $20.2 million.
•That represents 1,302,597 items sold for the month, 10% higher than February’s 1,186,311.
•2,008,387 new items were listed in the month, 9.7% higher than February's 1,830,825.
•246,834 new members joined the Etsy community in the month, up 10,800, or 4.6%, from February.
•718,635,940 page views were recorded on the site this month.
The $22.4 million of goods sold by the community represents a 84% increase from March 2009's total. At the same time, items sold were up 65%.
I think that this is just amazing. I am so happy to be apart of this Etsy community and Thank all of you who support our stores and buy hand crafted items.
