If you've been trolling the Treasuries on Etsy lately, you'll have noticed that Halloween is sprouting up. I even found myself making one last week and then this week I saw several more. Vintage Halloween is being searched on. This is the time of year for designing elaborate adult costumes, thinking about how to decorate for the big annual party, and planning what the kiddos are going to wear.

Cater to it. List your Halloween related items now. Get your costume pieces modeled and photographed. Use your Featured Items to show off your items and if you have enough, change them out often. Even just rotating the order the featured photos are in can give your shop a whole new look.

I recommend having a Holiday themed category to make it easy for shoppers. Make it easy for those ornament, decoration & costume customers. I've found many people don't realize they can search within our shops, especially all the potential buyers coming to our shops straight from Google. Categories are critical in helping them find things.

I found last year that Christmas ornaments began selling in late August. It's the time when buyers hope to score pieces before the main public begins buying. Don't wait to flood the market in late November because by then you'll have sacrificed all those early buyers. Late November is a fine time to relist, but do your initial listings in the upcoming weeks.
