When promoting handmade items, Etsy is a great place to start. So I want to take shops that have helped me in the past and new shops that are trying to get their names out there by having Featured Shops on my blog. For my First Feature Shop I was to give a shout-out to my brother’s shop.

He decided to start selling patterns because in my shop lovelylovedesigns, vintage patterns sold very well. All of his patterns range in sizes, designs, and age, which means everyone will find a pattern that will work for them in this shop.

Other sections that are found in his shop are the years each pattern was put out. Since people might be looking for a particular pattern, the year the pattern was created is the easiest to search. The following years can be found on his shop:
