How is everyone's selling going? Like Mike had said at one point, it seems like there will be a slow time, followed by a busy time. The last couple weeks have been busier for me but last month was real slow. I have been making a lot of floating shelves, to the point that I need to refine my processes to speed up the process. Shipping is also another animal. In the beginning I really didn't think I'd sell much so I made one listing for the floating shelves, as time has gone I've added sizes, some at the request of customers and some to just provide a wide range of sizes. Well as it sits now my one shelf listing ranges from 18" to 60". You can imagine that shipping costs vary greatly in that range so I have a dilemma. As I understand, the more views/favorites/sales a listing gets, the higher up in searches it shows up. Ideally I would split the shelving listing up so that the person ordering small shelves doesn't overpay for shipping and the person ordering large shelves doesn't underpay but I'm concerned that if I change my listing I'll lose the "priority" in searches. Is this true or did I dream it up?

Still need to get more things listed and improve on photos.
On your listings I would also suggest the same as I told him. Change the title and do two exact same items. One the way you do now and one the other way. Let's use your first listing as an example.
"Rustic Antler Bottle Opener, Bar Ware, Whitetail Deer"
If I were doing that listing it would be "Antler bottle opener, rustic bar ware, whitetail deer"
Then match the tags at the bottom and see what happens. Check the clicks and favorites after a week or so.
