She’s one of the most “famous” Etsy sellers thanks to media coverage like these:  How One Woman Makes Almost $1 Million A Year On Etsy from Fast Company, Secrets of the Richest Seller on Etsy from Yahoo, and a host of other articles, editorials, and responses (favorable and scathing) about her and her shop.

Press Release Highlights


Etsy success story Three Bird Nest announced its decision to depart from the Etsy Marketplace, effective immediately. The decision was made by Three Bird Nest to leave Etsy in order to better serve and focus on their customers through their own website and wholesale channels.


The choice to leave Etsy’s marketplace wasn’t made lightly and took the company over a year to decide. “We want to focus on Three Bird Nest’s website growth and potentially explore other marketplaces that fit more in line with our core values as a company,” Shaffer continued, “Additionally one of our goals has always been to provide affordable bohemian fashion clothing and accessories to our customers which we now can realize by selling independantly.”


Three Bird Nest is excited about the next chapter in their business adventure taking control of their fulfillment, products and amazing customer service. “We are looking forward to streamlining our sales and showcasing up and coming brands as well as our own designs,” Shaffer finished.
