How can I know when a spot in a showcase becomes avaliable?

I haven't had any sales in the past few weeks. I want to purchase a showcase, but I never see a spot available. Is there any way I can go to a list and wait in line? Or can I get an email when one becomes avaliable?

I'd recommend looking into the showcase idea a bit more before trying to sign up for one. Talk to other people who have used them ... the general consensus is that the $7 would be much better spent elsewhere.
a better use for your $7:
throw the money out your car window....you will make someone happy.
op. do you know whether the showcases are displayed? have you had results from them before? what else could you do for $7 that might have more impact?
I've never tryed them before. I don't know what else to try. I just want to up my sales.
i am just checking in again. have you tried a shop critique from a critique team? do you promote yourself on Facebook, twitter, blogs, and other social media.

have you done work on your tags and titles? are you placing well in the relevancy search?
Yea, the next thing a work on is a facebook page.

Thank you!
You can find the times at which Showcases go on sale listed here:

At this point it is still first come from served, so it definitely helps to be online when they go on sale.

Thanks all! Great tips on refining and promoting your shop; as always it's a good idea to have your shop in tip top shape before you spend too much time or money bringing people into it.
