When Do You Start To List Items for the Fall/Winter Season?

I have a question maybe y'all can help me with....
This is my first year selling on etsy and my therefore my first FALL/WINTER season. I have a ton ready to listing including hats, scarves, afghans and wrist warmer...and I am itching to know when is the right time to list them? I started listing hats but made them inactive because with the way etsy is right now you can rearrange your inventory (although I hear through the etsy Labs they are working on it) and they are all right in the front & while it is 100 degrees here in GA I thought they looked way out of place.
I have read about people who sell throughout the year due to international sales coming from cooler weather but I have yet to make an international sale so I was not catering to that group. I will after they are listed probably keep what does not sell during this time in, especially if the option to rearrange is available due to the fact that I would like to sell international.
I would love to hear y'all ideas on this matter.
So my question is~ when do you start to list fall/winter items in your shop/site/online shop?



Just found your blog tonight and I love your stuff. It's awesome! I'm not a retailer so I don't know that I have much to offer in regards to your question but as a consumer I start looking for Fall/Winter stuff at the end of July and beginning of August. I'm thinking I need me some stain glass earrings....they are beautiful!

Great, even better to hear from the buyer end!!! That is the info I needed too. Thanks for the kind words, and yes, I am a firm believer that every girl needs a pair of stained glass earrings. Let me know if there is something you want you don't see, I am listing a couple yellow, brown (toffee) and black pairs tomorrow (not a blend- each color a separate set of earrings ,lol).
Thanks for coming by!


I love the pumpkin cap. This reminds me of the funniest pumpkins ever seen I have in one of my web pages on Tenerife shops and health food.
Have a look at one of those pumpkins on photo...
I also must keep this blog in mind, in case I will be a granny one of these days and must learn to do baby crocheting, knitting and similar handy crafts.
