For all of us that love Etsy, we all have our favorite ways of browsing I'm sure! My favorite way to browse Etsy is to use the "Pounce" tool. Not only is it fun, but it's a great way to see what's trending on Etsy and see the kinds of things that are actually selling. I use it to make sure I'm up on the trends and to find new supply ideas for products. I also use it to find gifts for birthdays and holidays.
If you've never pounced before, you should definitely give it a try. Just go to www.etsy.com. Click on the "buy" button at the very top left. Then scroll down until you see "Pounce" and click on that. You can choose to pounce either the "Undiscovered" shops which have yet to have their first sale or the "Recently Sold" items. Both choices are a good way to find neat things. After that, just hit "Pounce." It will bring up 3 items. You can keep pouncing and it will keep refreshing the items.
This is my favorite way to browse because it's completely random! You will find all sorts of things that you never thought to search for. And if you want to look at an item or a shop, it opens a new window automatically, so you don't lose your place. It's a great way to spend a few extra minutes here or there.
