Etsy has a lot of great things for people that are in the handmade business full time or part time to supplement income. When I went on Etsy today and was going to create a new treasury list to my surprise, you will no longer be able to create a treasury list and edit your current treasury lists.
For those of you who don’t know what a treasury list is, a treasury list is where you create a list of various items from other Etsy shops. These items could be a theme like Fall Is Here and the list could handmade blankets, scarves, fingerless gloves, and anything related to Fall that will keep you warm.
I like these treasury lists because you could type in any handmade item, make a list, and the shops/people that you add to the list noticed your shop. People can send you comments, view your shop, and share the treasury list that you created.
The question is, why are they discontinuing the treasury lists and what do they have in store. Whatever they have in store for replacing the treasury lists, I hope that it will be good. I like Etsy because it’s free and you can keep your handmade items on your shop for four months. I know I’ve been on since April 2015, but making five sales has been good so far. As they say, getting your own business doesn’t happen overnight. I looking forward to seeing what Etsy will do in place of treasury lists.
