Adding Etsy Mini to


Unfortunately, grabbing the html code to install an Etsy Mini on a blog won’t work. However. take heart–all is not lost! 

I subscribe to the EverythingEtsy newsletter. Last week’s issue tickler was a great video Tim made about installing one’s Etsy Mini into a blog.

I followed Tim’s directions to a tee, but when I copy/pasted the html code for the mini into a text widget, which claims to take html,  the html code showed and NOT the mini. Yikes! What happened?

Well, it turns out that the Etsy Mini html code works fine for Blogger blogs and self-hosted WordPress  and blogs, but NOT the free version.

Punt When in Doubt

I had to figure SOMETHING out and here’s what I did.

  • I added a new page-see menu above
  • I took a screen shot of my Etsy Shop, then linked the jpg to my shop, but have not figured out how to make it my landing page. When I do, I’ll share it with you.

Now, it’s not perfect and it isn’t animated, won’t rotate, etc. but in a pinch, it works. See for yourself!


If you have a better idea about how to install your Etsy Mini into your blog, I’m all ears!

Happy Valentine’s Day
