Specific listings Critiques - Post them here

I looked through and didn't find a thread of this nature (could be staring me in the face)--can we start a thread to give advice to each other about specific listings? It's not about self-promotion, it's about providing support.
For example, I have 3 listings that several other teams and people in my life have helped me think of a few suggestions, but I can't understand why they are not getting more views (let alone selling) as I think they are good product, priced very well. Any suggestions, critique, etc deeply appreciated! And I'll answer other peoples posts.
Thanks in advance!

OK, having no experience in the vintage trade, you can take my suggestions with a grain of salt! :)
For your first listing, maybe take a picture with some of the items in an arrangement as if for play. Just setting up a few of the buildings, animals and people would make for an appealing photo.
For your second listing, do you think you could get a photo of all ten necklaces hanging side by side (preferably in rainbow order of colors--the eye is naturally drawn to that color arrangement). Again, I think this would give a better visual impact and would at first glance give the potential buyer a better feel for what is included in the listing.
For the last listing, I think maybe you should use your second to last photo as your main photo for the listing, it is a little more organized and seems more appealing to me. And maybe throw in a couple of skeleton keys to the lot if you have any--people are crazy for those keys nowadays! And I see you have steampunk as one of your tags, maybe also add "steampunk supplies" or something like that to your title and description as well.
Hope this is helpful!

Here is my dilema: I could use some suggestions!
I like pics of my kids blankets without kids in them, and yet, I think using my kids in some of the pics give an idea of the product, and a variety...any thoughts? It is challenging to find a balance-any feedback would be greatly appreciated!

kristi-- that is a dilemma. I am not any kind of photo expert!!! however, I think it might be nice to keep doing a mix for the cover photos (close ups w/out kids and ones w kids) but to make sure each kid-related piece once you click on the item has a mix of both pics. hope that makes sense :) I would also (and I totally fail at this sometimes) do the pics as bright as possible!

This sort of goes with the sharing critical etsy tips, but is for specific listings.
Donna made a great suggestion to me and I think it helped me get some extra views on a specific listings.
Feel free to post a specific listing you want a critique on here!
