I may be browsing a vendor I've bought from in the past or I might go back to the same vendor in my Favorites over and over because I love their work, and when I want to discover perhaps a similar style product or a similar aesthetic I'll click on that vendor's "Favorites".
Here's an example...I had bought a beautiful vase from Taylor Ceramics before the holidays. I loved Cara's work so much that I wanted to browse to see what some of her favorites are (maybe something might spark my interest too).
All you need to do is go to the vendor's side bar and click on the "Favorites" link. Favorites may or may not be marked as private, but I find a lot of people to have their Favorites public so it's always worth a browse.
**One other tip, I always read feedback before making a purchase. I've never had a bad experience with any of my Etsy purchases (over 30 at this point), but I always like to read what others are saying as well and what products have been purchased.
**And fantastic news, Etsy has added a search functionality to the user's favorite items list but I don't see one for favorite shops. But it's a great enhancement that I'm very happy about (especially since I save lots of pillows)
I'd love to hear your experience with Etsy and how you navigate the site.
Have a great weekend! We've got a busy one ahead.
