I'm back with some more Etsy news for ya! Here's what's covered in this week's episode:
Etsy CEO Josh Silverman announced new fall tv ad campaigns expected to start in November.
Etsy is redesigning the seller handbook with a new homepage coming in the next few weeks. Their goal is to make it easier to find information and make it more concise.

These are the items that you have to be careful of accidentally selling. And unfortunately, the excuse of not knowing won't help your case if your shop gets closed because you're selling a restricted item.

Etsy updates feed:
Etsy released a statement last week explaining the importance and how the updates feed works for buyers so sellers can take advantage.
The “Etsy Updates feed” notifies shoppers of updates to sellers with whom they’ve interacted (through either favoriting one of their items or by following their shop).
