If you go into the featured items link on the left hand side of "your etsy" you can choose which items to feature by clicking on the star next to each name. You must have accidentally done that somehow!
If you go "Your etsy" you'll see stars listed next to the listing, just click on three stars and when you go to your shop they will show up at the top of your photos

Holy cow flashbax...I just have to comment on how well you're doing here so far!! Only a few weeks old and you already have 30 sales...way to go! ;-)
The featured items in a store are the three that show up at teh top of the store (click into my store to see them if you want).

You set that up by clicking the star next to the item in the list of items in "your Etsy". Then click on "featured item" in "your Etsy" to line the up in the order you want. The first three will be featured at the top of your shop and if one of them sells everything in the list will move up a slot.
I like the fact that when you 'feature' items you can sort of change the look of your store when someone clicked there.

It's sort of like having a window display that you can change whenever you want!
oh, i didn't do it on purpose .... okay. thanks for the compliments .... I have my brick and mortar store with over 10,000 items, so I am going back and forth listing new inventory and stuff that's already at my shop. It gets frustrating .... sometimes I will list something and the very next day it sells at the shop and I have to delete it. But I'm having fun for the most part !!
ok, figured out how to do it. it's free, right?
Yes, it's free
Oooh, fun. I learned something new today!
