How To Add An Etsy STORE To your Facebook Fan Page

This discussion is public.
After much tinkering I think I finally figured it out. It is small and I am not sure if it is worth it. If anyone can figure out how to make it bigger, please advise. I tried the gallery view, but it still shows up small. You can check out what it looks liker here and feel free to become a fan if you like my stuff. The favor WILL be returned.
Directions ~ I hope this is clear....
1)First install the Facebook mystuff app. You can find it here,
2) See in the upper left hand corner it says "add to page". Click that and you should see a list of your pages. Click the one you would like to add it to.
3)Go to the Etsy Mini on "your store" in bottom left and click. Copy code.
4) Go back to the mystuff app and click on add code, then paste the code in. Click Add to profile.
4) Back at your fan site you will see a tab on the top across your page that looks like this ,
Boxes >>> with a plus sign after it.
Click the plus sign and you will see a list of things to add, click on "Mystuff" one.
5) My stuff will now be under your Boxes tab, and you should see your etsy store.
6) Next to the Etsy store under boxes tab, to the right you will see a pencil symbol. Click on that and hit " add to wall".
Your Etsy store should now appear along the side of your wall page......

EnchantedGypsy: To make your EtsyMini laarger, choose to display more columns--mine has 4 columns which fits on my 1024x768 screen. You choose that on the EtsyMini page, next to where you choose Thumbnail or Gallery, under "Choose Layout". Hope that helps :)

I just update my fan page and post each item as I list it on Etsy. I also post my blog updates with a link. My personal page is set to update my status every time I tweet on Twitter.
To add your items to your FB fan page just use the "what's on your mind?" box and paste in the url for the item you wish to post. The link will show up with the beginning text of your Etsy listing. Then click through your listing thumbnails and choose one to add with the listing link. This method is quick for me and allows a direct link to items AND allows for a larger photo of each item than an Etsy mini application. I also like that it is shown on my wall--front and center of the page--instead of off in the margin where it's less likely to be seen or utilized by visitors/fans.

I think any more than 3 columns and it goes small--3 seems to work ok for me, but 4 goes tiny :/
If anyone wants screencaps to help with this, I've put some in this blog post: wigglejewellery.wordpress.com/2009/06/14/178/
EnchantedGypsy: couldn't pick one, had to include two. Sooo gorgeous! :)
