Etsy's April Sales Spring Up 68%

Etsy reports that $63.6 million worth of goods were sold on the site in April, a 67.9-percent increase from April 2011.

Month-to-month sales growth was not as impressive—up just 1.1 percent from March—but measured against a lower number of items sold than in March, the total suggests that Etsy sellers are seeing higher average selling prices. More than 2.9 million items were sold on Etsy during April, compared to just over 3 million in March.

Sellers also listed 6.2-percent fewer items in April, compared to March, while Etsy membership increased 3 percent.

Site views, at 1.32 billion, were essentially flat with March.
