Stella just dropped this little tidbit in the Business section:

We've begun closely tracking trends and paying attention to what shoppers are searching and buying on Etsy. The curated areas of the site often reflect this research. You my have noticed the addition of a "Hot List" section in the Gift Guides that spotlights current themes that are popular at the moment.

---------------------------

So now you know! Get making those trendy items folks!

So... you can conform and make what sells... or you can make your own carp and hope others will see it, love it and buy it... hmmmm.

conformity sucks.
