My Etsy Treasury

I have had a shop at Etsy for several months now. Etsy is very busy, large and growing larger all the time, so it is important to promote your shop so people (buyers) will see your work and, hopefully, buy something from your shop. One method of promotion at Etsy is through the Treasuries. But the idea behind the treasuries is to promote other artists that you like in the treasury. A showcase of your own favorites or members of your 'teams'. It is, however, a challenge to get a treasury(that would take a whole post to explain how to get one and to create it). I've only made 2 treasuries since I opened shop. This is a snapshot of the one that I made last night. It features some colorful pieces from some of my favorites from 'team' members of the 'Mud Team' (clay artists), and a few from Arkansas artists, and some from online forums that I have gotten to know over the years that have recently opened new Etsy shops. Some of the new shops that have been opened are Cindy Haase, Paula Pertile, and Fannie Narte. They are very talented and friendly artists who have been kind to me and I wanted to show them my appreciation by helping to promote their shops. So I hope you will drop by their shops and see what beautiful things that they have been creating!


  1. That's a beautiful treasury! I haven't had the luck of snagging a treasury yet but eagerly await the day.

  2. Thanks again Beth!
    I've had my shop for oh, let's see, just about a week now, and I need all the help I can get! I read the tutorial on how to do a Treasury, and mine will have to wait until a day when I've had enough coffee. Its not as easy as it looks, is it?

    Yours is lovely. And your shop looks great!

  3. Thank you so much Beth! I loved being part of your Treasury. I've noticed that it's hard to get one submitted since the numbers are huge.

    I'm still learning my way around Etsy....you are right...you have to promote yourself.

    I wish you much success with your Etsy sight...your works are whimsical and wonderful.

  4. Thank you Sunny, Paula, and Cindy.
    Making a treasury can take some time, but they are fun to do. You just have to check in and figure out when they open.

    Good luck to you too Cindy! If I had any extra money I would buy one of your drawings! I would also buy one of Paula's scarves! Maybe if I get some more sales!


I love hearing from you! Thanks for stopping by!
