Hi, and thanks for your interest! We are an active group devoted to promoting our Etsy shops and helping each other.

Please apply on our etsy team page:  http://www.etsy.com/teams/6892/the-treasury-tree

At this time our jewelry category is full, but we are looking for awesome shops in these categories and beyond:

  • Pottery
  • Woodworking
  • Handmade supplies
  • Vintage shoes
  • Fine Art
  • Kids and Toys
  • Edibles and Plants
  • Food
  • Glassware
  • Make up
  • Mens items
  • Hand-dyed Yarn
  • Leather Work
  • Upcycled Furniture and Home Decor

Requirements:
* At least 5 treasuries per month, per member.
* Treasuries that contain at least 5 Treasury Tree members in the top three rows of the treasury.
* Active involvement on our forum and blog and by clicking and commenting on team treasuries.

Our application process involves reviewing your shop and looking at some of your existing treasuries. We also ask that you answer a few questions that will help us with the review.

Shop Criteria
We’re looking for:
* shops selling items we do not already have on our team
* at least a full page of well-photographed items
* at least 98% positive feedback
* an inviting and professional appearance

Note: We are perfectly happy if you to belong to other treasury teams, as long as you can keep up with your team requirements and be an active member of our team.

Treasury Review
We look for “front page worthy” treasuries that feature:
* a good variety of items and price points
* themes from the Etsy monthly merchandising reports
* complete and accurate utilization of tags and keywords
* collections that do not include the curator’s own shop
* high quality photos

Note: If you have not made any treasuries recently, please contact us when you have, and we’ll be happy to review them.

Applicant Questions
If after reviewing the above you feel you are a good candidate for this team, please answer the following questions:

1. Tell us about yourself, your shop, and your process (provide shop URL)
2. Do you have any other shops (provide URLs)? If so, will you be asking for membership for those shops?
3. Do you belong to any other treasury teams?
4. Do you have any special skills (e.g., computer work, graphic design, blogging) that you would like us to know about?
5. Please provide the links to at least two recent treasuries you have curated.

Please keep in mind that if we already have many members selling the same kinds of items as you, we may not be able to accept your application despite your meeting the above requirements. In that case, we will encourage you to apply again at a later time.

    I would love to join your team. I have already created a treasury for your challenge.

    I joined Treasury Promotion Team yesterday
    My shop is LCsWoodtopia. I am The C of LC. I come up with a lot of the ideas for wood working projects. I also do all the treasuries (which I am addicted to) and the promoting. Lee (the L) is the carpenter and does all the wood working. We have some very unique planters that we designed ourselves. They are the reason we joined Etsy. Friends and customers suggested we sell them. Our crabs have been our best sellers. We will be creating more styles for the spring.
    Here is a link to all my treasuries
