One tip I have is post in the forums! The majority of my sales that I know where they came from were people who found me in the forums.
Know your target market (In your case, people with babies, but be more specific, if you can. Where do these people usually shop for baby clothes, and why should they buy YOUR clothes instead?)
Social Networking is really good for crafts... many people have great success on twitter, blogger, and facebook.
Take. Good. Pictures. I can't stress that enough! People will glance right over your work if the picture doesn't POP!
Hope these tips help. I am hardly one of the biggest sellers on Etsy, but I have learned my way around it quite well.
I am on etsy under motherculture it is a huge community and hard to break in. I have been following the ETSY sucsess on the help forums to be really good advise. Helps you see your shop from a different light. Best advise is great pictures!
I can't stress enough the importance of really good pictures.
The truest answer to violence is love. The truest answer to death is life. The only prevention for violence is for the heart to have no violence within it. We cannot prevent evil through any system devised by mankind. But we can grapple with evil and defeat it, but only with love—real love.
