ETSY 101: Should You Make A Treasury?

Vintage Orange Flower Stud Earrings


One of the many great ways to promote other ETSY artists, those favorites who you just love, is by creating a treasury. What is a treasury? A mini showcase of your favorite items from other ETSY sellers. Many sellers use a particular theme, color, or category of goods to showcase. Some sellers I know have this in the back of their mind: “Why create a treasury if I’m not featured in it?”  Many times even if your items are not in the treasury you are still giving yourself that exposure, your store name is listed at the top and people are always curious to see who the great mind is behind the beautiful treasury which will lead people browsing into your shop from that hyperlink. Plus, it’s a great way to celebrate handmade and vintage, showcase off your favorites, and have fun on ETSY! Interested in making a treasury, here are some helpful articles:
