Wednesday-Waving Goodbye to Treasuries

Waving Goodbye to Treasuries

Thank you to

for all the treasuries!

I am not surprised that treasuries are going away today, October 5, 2016. Artfire did away with their version a while back. People who are included don't even stop by to comment. And I don't think they led to sale sunless they were promoted off-site.

That is my take on them anyway.

Here is the last treasury...

Here are more treasured favorites from talented artists and artisans on Etsy! I so wish Etsy would reconsider taking treasuries away from us - I will miss them. Thanks, and happy sales to all!

Thank you for sharing my UniquelyJenCreation fiber art piece in this last treasury! It is a beautiful collection and I am sad to see the end of treasuries on Etsy.

I think Etsy killed Treasuries when they removed them from the front page. Let's hope they have something new up their sleeves besides paying for Google ads! Thank you for promoting these treasuries as well and I think ending with one from Mary of Pretty Gonzo is a nice way to do it. She always made gorgeous treasuries and this one is no exception!

Aw, how sweet! Thanks for promoting this, Jacki - you've always been so generous sharing collections at your blog - and thanks for the kind comments, everybody.

I so enjoyed making treasuries, and I liked sharing beautiful creations from artisans who were either my friends to begin with or who became my friends through the treasuries. Many sellers I included in them did indeed promote, and that made doing a collection feel very worthwhile. It was also great fun to be included in someone else's treasury too. I'll really miss them.

Thanks again! xoxo

Beautiful collection, Mary! When ArtFire did away with collections there, it felt like some of the wind had been let out of the sails. I miss them and used to blog about them quite a bit. It's sad to see that Etsy is doing the same thing . . .

Thanks for sharing - our community of artists really sent Treasuries out with a bang. Some of the latest - like this one - were fabulous. I will miss them also. They helped in many ways to keep in touch with my handcrafting friends. Cheers! and thanks for sharing my earrings.

Thanks for including my handmade soap in your last treasury! I always appreciate the promotion this group of ladies has done over these past years. So many changes. It's sad in many ways to see the loss of community that had been enjoyed.
