I love making treasuries on Etsy. It's a great opportunity to see all the amazing things for sale that I wouldn't normally have a reason to look at. I also love emailing people to let them know that, amongst all the thousands of things to look at, I've selected their specific thing and placed it with 15 other beautiful, unique objects. (I also love getting these emails-it seriously brightens my day). I also love the thrill that maybe, just maybe this will make it to the front page of Etsy.
I participated in my first treasury challenge yesterday, and it was a lot of fun. I'd like to start up something similar on my blog, and there's no time like the present, right? So starting, like RIGHT NOW, I'm going to do 'Treasury Challenge Saturdays'. Every Saturday, I will pick an item to be featured in the treasury challenge. To start things off, we're going to be using one of my items, because I only know like two other people who sell on Etsy and I'm not even sure if anyone is going to play.
Here's how to play:
1.Make a treasury in Treasury East with ANYTHING, as long as featured item is included in the first three rows of the treasury. You can grab the featured item here.
3.Follow my blog (please).
4.Put "Treasury Challenge" somewhere in the title of your treasury.
5.Link back to this post. This helps other people find the challenge and enter.
6.Post a comment here with the link to your treasury.
7.Please refer people! I need all the press I can get!
The winner will be chosen next Saturday, July 31. I will post the winning entry on this blog at that time, so be sure to check back to see if you've won! I will also announce next week's Treasury Challenge. You will win a 5 oz. bag of my seriously delicious candied popcorn, so I will need to be able to contact you via email to get your shipping info.
If you're interested in having an item in your shop featured in a future 'treasury challenge saturday' (and would be willing to give away a product valued around $5), please, please, please let me know! i hope this will be great exposure for your shop and a lot of fun for everyone involved.
