I did a little statistical observation and examined the first 6 pages of my Etsy shop. I calculated the percentage of items in certain colors and the results were, well, not remotely shocking or exciting.
Blue won, with 34% of the listings being predominantly blue.
I was a little surprised that only 16% was purple (with some lavender/pink hues).
I intentionally made my 2nd page predominately warm colors. Red/orange is still only 14%.
Anyone preferring yellows and golds would probably not be that excited about my shop. Only 5% of the items are in those hues. I did not count the brass finish on some of my jewelry items, mostly I looked at the images featured.
I only have a trivial amount of white/grey listings. This means I am rarely a candidate for Etsy's front page!
|This item actually made it to the front page.|
What does this all mean? It probably means it wouldn't hurt for me to get crazy and paint a few yellow/golden tree and forest scenes.
