Lets Get Creative!
With the thousands of vintage items listed on Etsy, adding a creative touch to your photos will help your items be clicked on, featured in treasuries, make the front page, and ultimately be purchased! Let's take a peek at the February Merchandising Desk on Etsy, where we can discover what is being promoted as popular this month. If you have these type of items in your shop, it may help you get more hits to your site since this is what people will be searching for. Here are some VMTEAM mates who are putting that extra bit of creativity into their photography and that hit on some of the trends for the month.

Vintage children's blocks are a great way to add a graphic punch to a photo. Letters are popular on Etsy and they can be arranged into words or names. Stacking the drawers at an angle with the letters gives a great geometric feel. Unique storage options are also ever popular.
What a fun way to bring nature into a photo of boots! Setting up a still life with twigs as in a "vase" looks fabulous and creates a natural, woodland theme indoors!
It is time for Nautical items to make their appearance again! A vintage suitcase makes a fun and eye catching backdrop for any number of items. I know everyone has come by them in their vintage searches- they give an aged look to the photograph. Keep an array of suitcases in different colors to match your item, or just keep a neutral toned one to go with everything!
