Wow!

Yesterday items from our Etsy shop, LibbyLuLa, were in three different treasuries!


I just checked my shop stats: I have items in three treasuries today and it's not even 10am.!


What a wonderful thing to happen.

Let me explain a few things about Etsy. 
Etsy is a very socially oriented site. Once you open a shop there you are encouraged to join teams. 
These teams help you promote your shop. 
I went to the Teams site and researched teams that reflected my shop and requested to become a member. I am a member of 4 Etsy teams. 
Through communications with team members we learn different ways to get our shops seen by the public. 
Treasuries are one of these ways.

You pick items from other's shops to put in a group of items that fit a theme, which is the title for your treasury. You then let others know you've created a treasury and many people then come to those shops through visiting the treasury.
While viewing these items people can favorite the items and/or the shop. 

It's a great way to get  shops and items seen by potential customers. 
In turn those shops may feature your items in a treasury.

Here are the three Treasuries Items of ours were featured in yesterday:
