New Etsy Treasury Tools

If you are active as a buyer and/or seller on #Etsy you will be familiar with the Etsy Treasuries.
An Etsy treasury is a collection of 16 items from 16 different shops, which together presents an impression of all the fabulous things being sold on Etsy.

Although at first mainly an on-Etsy promotion there are now more and more tools for promoting a treasury on social media.

Adding treasuries to Pinterest:With treasurypin.com you can add the first 8 photo's of a treasury into one pin.
Here are some results I pinned: pinterest.com/missminoes/etsy-treasuries/



The way to promote until recently was sharing a link to a page, and make a print screen photo of the treasury. What we WANTED, though, was to be able to click on an item in the treasury and go directly to the item on Etsy.

Handmadeology introduced me to etreasurytool.com/etsy-treasury-tool/
This is a tool to add an interactive treasury to your Blog or Website.
They have an clear explanation how it works on their site:
