I'm curious to know what the best selling products are on Etsy. Is there a way to see what type of products sell the most and what regions? What is the best selling product in your shop?

I'm not sure what sells best overall on Etsy, but for my shop it is a seasonal issue. During the holidays, my calendars sell like hotcakes. Prior to Valentine's Day, I sold a lot of custom cards and printable valentines. And it seems like during the rest of the year, people love my notebooks, greeting cards, and other small paper goods. As a whole, people love things they can relate to. My dog-themed and nautical items always do well because they make great gifts...

Thanks for the feedback. Will have to take a look at AfricanGrey's notebooks.

If you search on the forums you'll find a website of Top Selling Etsy Shops. I think they split them between "supplies" and ones that sell everything else. Be'll freak when you see how many sales these best selling shops have!

Yeah looks likes supplies sell the most more than handmade, but there is also a new app under the app section that shows whos top seller etc.

I can only dream and wish and hope my shop sold that much.

The top top sellers are mostly supply sellers, but close behind are an artist, scrabble tile pendant shop, bath and body shop, a jewelry shop with kind of upscale sparkly things, and some of the stamped silver jewelry shops. A site called craftcount has lists of the top 10 sellers, and then under each category the top 100.
Of course, these top sellers have also had their shops open for a few years for the most part. It is interesting to look and see what sells well.
