11 Best Selling Items on Etsy in 2017

You might think best selling items on Etsy in 2017 would be hard to come by. After all, the Etsy shops which meet this criterion have only had 10 months to work up a massive following and shining reputation.

But don’t worry. It turns out there are some exceptional sellers out there, and they couldn’t do their job better. Makers are continually finding new ways to up their businesses, especially through sites like Etsy, where thousands of self-promoted businesses continue to thrive. But Etsy is only composed of handmade items, so these aren’t things you’ll find at the local department store. Unique is the perfect way to describe many of the handmade items sold on the platform. They also sell the materials used to make crafts, such as fabric and tools, and one of those sellers is even represented on our list. These aren’t the kinds of dorky crafts you see at some fundraisers, either. Etsy sellers and makers know what they’re doing, and if there are any who don’t, they certainly won’t be represented here. So whether you’re the type that thinks ahead about holiday gifts (and there’s nothing better than gifting a personalized gift from Etsy), or you’re interested in becoming an Etsy seller yourself, you’ll love reading through our list of hits on Etsy.

To find our best selling handmade items in 2017, we scoured Etsy for its best trending shops. We went to the Etsy home page to find them. Then we selected shops that had a full 5-star review ranking. Of course, we picked only those shops that have been “on Etsy since 2017.” Etsy has both of these factors listed on each shop home page, along with its description, location, number of reviews and number of sales. Only the shops that have over 700 reviews are taken into consideration, and you know they’ve got to be good if they’ve racked up that many reviews in less than a year.

We also took into account the number of sales each shop has made, since this is the list of best selling items on Etsy in 2017, after all. Then we averaged the two numbers (number of reviews and number of sales) and ranked each shop from those averages. These are truly the top sellers of handmade items on Etsy within this year. If you’re looking to sell online, be sure to keep these items in mind as the most wanted handmade items from online buyers. You can also check out this list of best selling items on Etsy for another list of top Etsy sellers by category. You’ll also get an idea of the newest craft trends of 2017 by skimming this list and the shops in it. And some fall craft trends of 2017 are already emerging, so be on the lookout. (See also our list of most profitable Etsy shops in 2017.)

So, what are some of the best things to sell on Etsy to make money? According to this list, the answer is jewelry. Over half of our top Etsy shops 2017 sell some form of jewelry, and people are certainly buying. One more thing – keep in mind that the images displayed along with each item aren’t representative of the items sold in these shops. They’re purely for general visual appeal. You’ll have to click on the links provided to see what’s really offered. Additionally, remember that shop reviews, especially of those popular ones, are always changing. So though these numbers could easily fluctuate over time, they’re still a good representation of each shop’s current status.

So without further ado, here’s our list of best selling items on Etsy in 2017.
