Etsy Treasuries

I have my own Etsy shop, so from time to time I create treasuries. I'm doing them quite a bit at the moment as Craft Hour networking page host #TreasuryTuesday.  
Treasuries are lists of items on Etsy which people usually create to a certain theme, e.g. a particular colour or items for weddings. They consist of a maximum of 16 items. 
I always message people to tell them their item is in my list and often get asked how to create one from people who are new to Etsy, or have never created a treasury before.
Bearing this in mind, I thought I'd write a tutorial that I can point people to rather than writing it all out in conversations several times!

  1. Go to Etsy front page and scroll down. On the left-hand side you will see 'More Ways to Shop' - click 'Treasury' 
  2. On the next page, go to the top right-hand side and you will see 'Curator Tools' - click 'Create a List' 
  3. This brings you to the page where you will actually create your treasury. Think of a Title and a Description which explain the theme of your items. You will also need to add Tags to help people in finding your treasury. Once you have done all this, copy and paste the URLs for each item and click 'OK'. 
  4. Once all the spaces are filled, click 'Save' at the bottom. Your treasury is now ready to share. 
It is a good idea to send a message to the shop owners to tell them you've included their items. That way it gets exposure and you get more 'Favorites'. The more items are included in treasuries, the more likely they are to be on the first page when searching.

I hope you have found this tutorial useful. 

Many thanks,
