Original Post

Has anyone bought a showcase spot for an item? In the scheme of things, $7 isn't much, but at this point it's hard for a penny-pincher like me to justify more expenses before I have made a penny! But maybe the increased traffic it generates is worth it??? Anyone have thoughts/experience with one?

I haven't. I think it is very expensive advertising. First, I am rarely on the page that displays those, and then I don't really look at anything. There are many ways to promote to Etsy customers that are free to us. If I were going to start spending that kind of money, I would look into google placement ads or FB in order to attract customers from outside of Etsy.
