Art of Item Descriptions

I don't know about anyone else but when I visit shops on artfire and etsy if I am attracted to a an item I look and read through the items description. Some are very lengthy with short stories ( I might read a sentence or 2 but thats it), some have certain words that heighten my attraction, and some have just the items materials used. It seems like some have the niche to pull the customer in and get them to browse more items. I thought it might be helpful if we can share some tips with each other the art of items descriptions.

The words that attract myself are soft, romantic, and versatile

Just a beautiful day

It is a beautiful sunny day here in New Jersey. I just completed an order for some beautiful beads at bobbiebeads on artfire and headpin supplies through lululalaland also on artfire both are very reasonable priced. I have made purchases from lululalaland in the past and it has been a easy positive purchase and delivery. This is my first purchase from bobbiebeads.
I joined a guild, "shops with 5 or less sales". There is an upcoming contest I am not real clear on so I am following the first contest. It is to promote people to your shop. I feel stupid to say I only found how to access the forum in the guild and found what the contest rules are.

Hi welcome to my world...
I have not been consistent on my blog due to chronic pain issues. I am sure those who can relate to those 3 little words (chronic pain issues){CPI} you know how much this condition can change and most times control your life. I have been down for a week or almost 2 (when you have CPI you count every good day & every bad day). At times it is unmanageable with no relief. I am getting back on the uppity up train feeling somewhat better. At least good enough to sit and design.
It is during the low times when I read art daily on artfire or etsy community resources to gain insight what is happening in the art world and ways to enhance and increase sales, packaging merchandise, advertising, increasing customers, contests, etc...
Don't forget tonight at 9:00pm EST will be another ambush on artfire sneakers check it out for the unsub which is also listed on chatter box same time...until next time....
