Navigating Etsy from the Header Bar
To help you easily and quickly access the tools you need, every Etsy page, including its home page, contains a header bar with several links. As with the links along the top of the page, the appearance of the header bar differs depending on whether you're signed in to your Etsy account. If you're not signed in, the header bar contains the following links:
Etsy: No matter where you are on the Etsy site, you can return to the home page by clicking the Etsy logo in the header bar.
Register: Click this link to register with the site.
Sign In: To sign in to your account, click this link.
Cart: Click this link to view items in your shopping cart.
When you sign in to the site, these links replace the Register and Sign In links:
Activity: If you choose to participate in the Etsy community — for example, by adding items or shops to your list of favorites, creating Treasury lists, or adding people to your Etsy circle — you'll see evidence of that activity in your Activity Feed, which you access by clicking this button.
Conversations: A conversation — or convo, if you don't have time for all those extra syllables — is a communication with another member using Etsy's internal messaging system. To view any active convos, click this link.
Favorites: Etsy lets you bookmark your favorite items and shops by adding them to your Favorites. In Etsy-ese, this is also called hearting. To view your Favorites, click this link.
Shop: This icon offers quick access to your Etsy shop.
Regardless of whether you're signed in to your Etsy account, the header bar also displays Etsy's Search tool, which you can use to locate the following:
People and shops
Simply type a keyword in the Search field, click the down arrow to the left of the field and choose what you're searching for, and click the Search button.
If you're signed in, you can also use the search tool to search among your favorite items and your favorite shops.
