Relevancy Thursday

Etsy has started "Relevancy Thursday" search testing in which search results order items by relevancy, not recency. While it's a good idea in theory, it has seriously effected everybody's views and turned listing into a keyword spamming contest. Sellers that use accurate tags and titles are being punished. I haven't paid too much attention to the threads about it but I have seen a big decline in views and sales. I have also seen a large amount of GOOD deals on Etsy lately and so I've decided to start posting these great deals every Thursday. Grab them while you can!

Vintage 1940s Celluloid Bird Brooch $14 by retrospace

Frosted Lucite Vintage 1940s Florida Heart Pin $8 by thespectrum

Bakelite Dress Clip with Rhinestones $12 by VintageStation

Silver and White Leaf Necklace $23.99 with free shipping by AgingGracefully

Next week will be clothes!


  1. cute!and ugh yeah etsy search was screwed up enough already now its really bad

  2. I'm always looking to etsy for inspiration. these are some great finds!

  3. I was so pissed when I was looking for a suit on etsy and I didnt notice the "relevant" crap.. then I had to re-do my search with most recently listed.. as that is where I find the best deals. ugh...
    its insane. and I dont like it.
