Are you familiar with Etsy's Search Ads? For a weekly fee, you can promote your shop or certain things from your shop all over the Internet.

Your case is so cute! I sell vintage on Etsy, not handmade, but I'll tell you what I know at least.

The main way of being found on Etsy is through the search which uses your titles and tags. I glanced at your tags and you'll want to use things like "eyeglass case" , or "bird eyeglass case", "glasses case" , " sunglasses case". If your tags aren't descriptive of what the item actually is it is very hard to get found in search.

Good luck with your shop! Your case is so cute!

If you have a blog (not a wordpress blog), you can use the Etsy Mini. It is a clever little tool. Here is my Etsy Mini on my blog: Claire Sews

Claire, you can use an Etsy badge as well on your blog. I have one on my WordPress blog.
