Today, I want to talk about a really cool tool on Etsy. It’s Etsy’s “Color Picker. Why might you want to know about it? Well, it’s perfect when searching for gifts if you want a certain color, or perhaps you’re planning a wedding or a party and you have a color theme, or perhaps you’re composing a treasury. Whatever the occasion, you should know about this TIME-SAVING searching tool! Here’s what it looks like when you have arrived…
The COLOR PICKER…REALLY too cool for its own good! Find items by COLOR. Visually select the color you are searching for and it shows you items on Etsy that match your color selection. It’s great because you don’t need to know the name of a color; you just slide your mouse along the color bar and watch the color bubbles until you hit the color you’re looking for… (let’s say I’m looking for purple – here’s what it would look like)
and here is how it shows results:
you can choose to see more of the same color, or move your mouse again and select a different color – maybe something complimentary (good for if your doing a treasury!) Example…I’ll proceed and look for teal colored items. Color picker will still show my purple items and then will show the teal ones…
It can be a real time-saver if you are searching for an item of a particular color!
So, how do you find it and how do you go about using it? Well, go to the Etsy web site and on the left hand side of the screen, you will see the navigation bar that is titled, “ways to shop“. Select “colors” from the navigation bar, and viola!, you’re there!
To make it even easier, while you’re at my blog, you can just click here to play. 🙂 So, if you haven’t already discovered it, which is completely possible because Etsy has SO much to discover, you should definitely make time to play with the color picker tool!
