There are a bunch of people complaining on the Etsy forums, I guess a lot of people really hate change. I love what Etsy has done!
Not only do I love the larger item photos, but I also like that we can now scroll down the page to see all of our items rather than clicking on new pages. And, they gave us five more sections. I don't think I need them, but there are people who have been asking for that for a very long time.
Oh, and I like how the top of the page looks with the cover photo option. Thinking I'll ditch my banner in favor of that.

Michele, if you look at the left side of your page where your sections are listed, there's an option that says "all". Click on that and you should see all of your listings on one page. At least, I do on my page.
Edit to add that there's also a link down where it says "# of #" that says "show more" or "view all items" My shop isn't showing page numbers.

Dawn, I clicked the view all items button. There must be a limit to how many are viewed on a page. I think I have too many listings to be viewed all at once. I counted 90 on my first page, which is better than it was before.
The old looks has 24 per page plus the four featured items so 90 is a lot more to be seen by buyers without having to click to the next page.
I currently have 88 live listings so that would explain why all of my things are on one page. There are 34 that expired while we were on vacation and I've been renewing at the rate of five per day. When we first got home, it was around 70 that had expired! I imagine when I renew another five tomorrow, I'll have two pages on the new shop look.
Really liking the larger photos and more listings per page!
I was going to use a photo of me with an elephant, but now I'm thinking of making a banner with some of my painted pendants displayed across and using the elephant for my shop photo which would be just below the banner. The elephant ties into the shop because I'm going to donate 15% of the proceeds from the sale of any elephant jewelry in my shop to the Elephant Nature Park (which is a sanctuary for rescued elephants) in Thailand.
Now I just have to figure out how to make a new banner!
Thank you, Cat! It's something that's been bouncing around in my head ever since our visit to ENP. It is very sweet of you to offer to help me with the banner and I very well may take you up on that offer. Left to my own devices it could take me months to figure it out!
I only have two elephant items listed right now, but have a pair of earrings made from the hill tribes silver beads I bought in Thailand that need listing. Need to take some photos so I can post those. Also planning a few things based on the 1200+ photos I took at ENP.
Michele, I haven't looked at my email yet. Will take a look right now.
If you take your banner down, what do you have planned for that space?

Dawn, if you edit your shop in preview, you can see what your shop looks like with and without a banner. There is no blank space if you don't choose a banner. Everything just moves up. Since the shop icon and profile picture have moved to the top of the page and are larger, I think my banner is too much.
I seem to receive Etsy emails a day or two after everyone else. Thanks for the link, Michele. I'll check it out and play with my shop appearance in a couple of days. No time right now due to catching up with things around the house.
