Etsy Treasuries R So Much Easier Now !!!

What is an Etsy Treasury?
Treasuries are Etsy's ever-changing, member-curated shopping galleries. Members can create collections of items they love based on any theme! Etsians may comment on collections, share them on various sites, and definitely shop them! Treasury East collections have no limits and no expiration dates. Visually interesting and well coordinatd collections may be featured on Etsy's home page too!

The old treasury system was aweful!
OMG the old way of handling treasuries on Etsy just sucked. It was very competitive with a set number allowed (like 300 or something ridiculous for thousands of users). You'd have to wait around to see if you could snag one and I never had any luck because my computer ran a bit slow. Some people were just hounds for treasuries and sniffing them out all the time! Plus, the treasuries were up for only a limited amount of time, a few days I think in some cases. I gave up.
They've since revamped the treasury system!!!
As many treasuries you want to make, available all the time to any member, and they stay up indefinitely ;) I decided to curate specifically themed galleries, rotating new items in as items sell. Presenting my favorite Divination goods, fun Zombie stuff, and Day of the Dead all year long! Check these treasury links often for updates!
