etsy treasury: gray days.

i’ve been shopping and selling on etsy for years now, but up until this weekend, i’d never created my own etsy treasury. it’s quite easy, and yes, quite addictive, too! i love curating — i think it’s one of my favorite pastimes, and kind of what i do here on the blog a good portion of the time. bringing together eclectic pieces to create a cohesive and well-blended look is challenging and fun!

want to create your own etsy treasury? you need to register for etsy (if you’re not familiar, etsy is free to join, of course), and from there, it’s a snap! follow the instructions here, and you never know, your treasury could end up on the etsy homepage! i call this one gray days.

clockwise, left to right: hindsvik; trampoline; studio cybele; and little byrd vintage.

and while i’m on the subject of etsy, i think all of these sellers share a common thread, besides being favorite items of mine — they all photograph their inventory in a way that’s pleasing to the eye, and easy to share. i really think good photography is a key point to selling well on etsy, being featured in etsy treasuries and helping bloggers to post about your shop!

clockwise, left to right: modify/d; umbu; the moon craft; and elizabeth bauman.

  1. Haha!!! Miss Victoria it is so addictive and I’m not surprised you love it… :)
    It is a lot easier to do these days, now you don’t have to wait for others to expire to bag yourself a slot… I can’t tell you how many hours I wasted doing that… ;)
    And you’re right, good photography is the key! It makes treasury curating so much more enjoyable when you have beautiful items that have been beautifully photographed. Of course once you’ve made such a beautiful treasury you can’t help but want to share it with everyone… :)
    I do love your ‘gray days’ too and shall pop by to show my support and hopefully help get it on the FP… ;)

  2. Etsy addict here. I totally agree with you on the importance of good photography. I also think it is super important to title the item with a proper description, rather than naming a vintage cigar box {that is unrecognizable in the thumbnail} “the abbey.” You know? I love your gray days collection. Gray is the easiest color for our eyes to look at, and one of my favorites. :) Thanks for sharing!

  3. I can see myself being pulled into Etsy more and more with each day. I’m impressed with the photography to sell those vintage items. Feathers in a wood bowl, brilliant. And I’m coveting those wooden hangers. Thanks for being such an enthusiastic curator. Even gray seems soft, cheerful and uplifting through your talented blogging.
