I suspect removing the wedding category and replacing it with the "Wedding Registry" is an attempt to remedy this. However a shopping venue needs real categories.
If the categories and sub-categories were carefully thought out and updated to further break down the high volume of diverse items here it would make browsing much easier.
I browse and shop categories regularly. They are so limited that the drill down no where near brings me the defined results I am looking for. I also have this issue when listing an item.
Sellers please consider sharing the categories and sub-categories you really need to properly list items. If Etsy would make a decision to add them it would really help shoppers find your listings.
I know there have been threads ever since I have been here by sellers requesting appropriate categories and sub-categories be added. Perhaps if they can be compiled in one place it would be helpful to Etsy if they decide to re-visit and improve this vital feature of the site.
