I'm not finding any way to do a search to find what has been sold. I would like to search by a particular word, such as "dog" or "cat." Am I looking right past that feature or is it not on Etsy?

the only way you can see the sold items is go to a store and tape onto sold items and it will show the items sold check a couple out to see what is selling.

you could find shops that sell what you are looking for and then look to see what they sold

You can go to pounce and pick recently sold items. That won't give you what has been sold with specific tags, but will show recent sales.

I wish I could do a sold search right in my own shop!

It would be a good feature to have!

Sellers can search their own sold items by buyer and by date sold, but the general public cannot do that.

The only way to see what has recently sold is to take a look at Time Machine 2.

But be careful! You could find yourself spending $$$$ very easily if you find a shop that you like.

I like to see how quickly some items sold, for example.
