The End of the Treasury


The End of the Treasury



And in the End – My Final Treasury.


On September 21, Etsy Admin sent out this Memo
We wanted to let you know that as of October 5, members will no longer be able to create new Treasuries or edit existing ones.

Throughout the years, our community has curated Treasuries that have showcased the diversity of the Etsy marketplace while encouraging and collaborating with other sellers. However, our data shows that few buyers view Treasuries, and even fewer purchase from them. Based, in part, on this information, we are removing this feature. Read more about this in the Site Update.”

I do think Etsy should have done some research with Etsy Seller’s as to their view of doing Treasury’s. They mention they based their decision on the fact that “few Buyer’s” were not interested in viewing Treasury’s; yet I found in one of the discussions a Buyer who mentioned they made many purchases from items they found while going through various Treasury’s. 


Goodbye Baby and Amen!  Treasury


As I was looking through the Forums to see other Seller’s reactions to Etsy’s comment that as of October 5 – there will be not more Treasury’s; I came across this comment from Irina, whose Shop is:  www.etsy.com/shop/AnyoJewelry.
“Many will miss treasuries and I am one of them. Treasuries were the way to find original true handmade artists, which were not on the first pages in search. Today if I want to buy something that is handmade, I have to go through pages and pages of manufactured/mass produced things and just give up.”

Since I started on Etsy in 2007, Treasury’s were such an important part of promoting!  I don’t know how many you remember when there were only 333 Treasury spots.  One would have to wait for an existing Treasury to expire, and a space would open.  I can’t tell you how many nights I was up to 1 – 2 am waiting for that one spot as Etsy would give a count down by hours and minutes of when a spot may open.  Unfortunately, half of the other Sellers’ on Etsy were sitting there also waiting for that spot. So even if you may have missed getting that one Spot, it brought on so much anticipation and excitement as to what was to come.
Looking back in my Treasury Archives – I came across one of my first Treasury’s:

We Are All Artists – 5.18.08

Since that time, of the many Treasury’s I have done, I have not only come across so many new Shops I might not have seen before, but have made many friends through posting their items on one of my Treasury’s, or being featured in one of theirs. 
So now that we have come to the end of an “Etsy Era”; we are left to the option of Promoting ourselves, and Team Members.  I am one who “never says never” – I hope to start doing my own version of Treasury’s on my Blog promoting not only Team Member’s, but bringing to light many other “handmade only” Sellers to your attention!
See you all then!!!!
