Things that sell and things that don't.

I was looking through the 'sold' list today, and I found it really interesting what sells versus what I think should sell.

For example, the lovely, springy green moss I have listed was basically a whim. Our lawn is being invaded by it (being a huge fan of alternative lawns, I'm all for it), so I thought I might as well take advantage of it's vigor. The next thing I knew, I had an order for four pieces! I didn't think anyone would really be truly interested in it, and I'm very curious what my buyers have found a use for it at their home.

I assumed that my beebalm would be a fast sell. It's one of my favorite plants, so I automatically assumed that it would be a favorite. It's got four hearts, so I'm assuming it's not completely unloved. :)

Funny how that works. Anyone have anything similar going on?

You are so right! I don't know some times if it my photos or what though? Like I've sold more of my ghost plant than any others. http://www.etsy.com/sold_orders.php

The ghost plant is pretty unique looking. I wonder if it's the name? I've heard people can be turned off by species names and prefer common names (which usually do sound more interesting).
