Hi there,

We'd like to start representing a larger variety of items handpicked by the community on Etsy's Home Page, and we'd like your help. We'll be using this forum thread as a source for curating *some* of the homepages in the coming weeks along with other new ideas to keep things fresh, new, and diverse.

Please nominate your list by placing a link to the list in this forum thread. We hear the requests for greater diversity and representation on Etsy's homepage and we'd very much like to make that happen, starting with each of you.

Create your list or series of lists using this link: www.etsy.com/treasury

Follow these guidelines for creating a list for Etsy's Home Page:

* Fill all 16 spaces with active items that are for sale and use a different shop for each space.
* Select items with clear, crisp and visually stunning product photography.
* Choose items from a variety of different categories and price points.
* Shy away from using items from your own shop or shops, as the home page Treasury isn't intended for personal promotion.
* Items representing the diverse offerings and shops on the site.
* lists fitting one of the current themes in May's merchandising post: www.etsy.com/storque/how-to/from-etsys-merchandising-desk-may-flowe...

Thanks in advance for your participation. We'll be closing this thread nearing the end of May and if all goes well, opening a new one in time for June. Feel free to let us know your feedback as we go along and any additional ideas you have for community participation in the curated areas of the site.

Mary

Many thanks for the opportunity... I've never made a treasury before. This is my first one! Wasn't to bad... I thought it was going to be difficult.
