OK, so how does one tag a vintage ashtray or cigar tin if one cannot use a word that is tobacco related?? Lingerie?? Sensual, a great word!...Preposterous!--do "they" somehow think that if one doesn't see a word in print that a person will not think on it, wear it, smoke it or drink it (quel horror--after all, I drink therefore I am)?? I know this applies to Google searches but still!;)....

Thanks so much for the info!! Truly helpful and naturally I just used some of those tags, today and yesterday:)...off to edit!
As far as anything ashtray or smoking related...I always go with "tobacciana" which I know is google acceptable but that's about the only one that I can think of.
...soon we'll all be living in plastic bubbles to protect us from the evils of the world...
I have been using :tobacciana"...but so much for using "all 14 tags", as Etsy constantly urges us to do;) Also, for drinking items you can use "breweriana". I do have to chuckle at "champagne" as a Google no-no, though!--a while back I sold a vintage sterling champagne swizzle stick pretty soon after listing it! I used "wine" and "champagne" and "bar" in the tags and liberally in the listing:)
So, I can't travel or go on vacation, smoke, drink, look sexy,wear precious metals,like thorny roses, or have a muse?? What shall I do???? :-)
