Treasuries

December 30, 2008 at 12:44 am 1 comment

The front page of etsy.com features pictures of twelve items currently for sale by various sellers — but how are those items picked?   From “treasuries”. Anyone can put together a treasury (not to get too complicated — there are a limited number of these treasuries, so it takes luck and patience to snag the opportunity).  “Someone” in etsy management picks from among these treasuries and features their favorites ones on the front page.  I have one I created now, waiting to be discovered — here’s the link: http://www.etsy.com/treasury_list.php?room_id=29456                       (good until 8 a.m. 12/31/08). 

Anyway, being featured on the front page is a BIG DEAL.  But a given treasury is only on the front page for a relatively brief period of time…. which could be in the middle of the night…. so it’s easy to miss seeing your moment of fame.  BUT,  I just discovered that there is a flickr.com group called “etsy treasury front pagers” that takes and posts screen shots of these ever-changing front pages, and even tags them with shop names, so you can search for a given shop.  That is how I found out tonight that I have indeed been on the front page of etsy.com!  Here’s the screen shot:

There in the middle of the third row is my handspun “colorblast” yarn (which has since sold).   Here’s a better picture of it:

Enough for now — I just wanted to pass along the discovery of this very useful flickr group!
