Welcome to the official thread for Team Discovery: the September Edition!

Team Discovery is a brand new Etsy team. Our mission is to find the hidden jewels of Etsy, those talented and undiscovered sellers, and help get them, well, discovered! The main way we do this is through beautifully curated treasuries which helps to showcase these new sellers while also promoting and supporting our team.

Our blog is
Here you will find interviews with undiscovered shops and team members, treasury challenges, tips and tricks, and a wonderful support system.

Our Facebook group is located at

This team is open to anyone!
To browse through our team treasuries:

If you are interested in joining the team:

**Every team member must create at least 2 team treasuries a month. Team treasuries consist of at least 8 undiscovered shops (under 20 sales) and the rest team shops. You are free to make as many other treasuries as you like, but in order to be a Team Discovery treasury, your treasury must include at least 8 undiscovered shops with the rest of the slots filled with team members.**

All team treasuries must use the "teamdiscovery" tag, all one word and without the quotes.

In addition to the monthly treasuries, we hold weekly treasury challenges on our blog. These are not mandatory but they do have exciting rewards so you won't want to miss them!

The team roster is located below, in addition to helpful links. The team roster is what you'll use to fill the remaining spots in your treasuries, after you've filled the undiscovered spots. Pounce is a great tool to find undiscovered shops and I've also included links to forum threads listing undiscovered shops.

Oh no! I have a question right off the bat. I should make 4 treasuries a month, right? 2 shops = 4 treasuries per month.

Let me know if I am incorrect, but no worries either way. I can manage that.

I have to come up with some cool new themes for this next week for my treasuries! Today is my oldest son's birthday and in 9 more days is mine. 9 days before that was my youngest son's birthday.

So either 9 or birthday! lol
