Great Tip for your Etsy Shop

I found this tip on the Etsy forums posted by roundabout. She noticed that her husband had some problems navigating shops because the link at the top back to the shop is not very prominent, this is her solution:
This got me thinking to how I could more easily get shoppers into my shop from my listings. I decided to add this to the bottom of each of my listings:
