He he he ... someone recently asked me just what does this team do???

Well ... my understanding of the what the team does is ... senseless acts of treasury making, performance art, having fun, and pillow fighting ... but not always in that order.

The Flash Mob team was originally founded on the principle of the flash mob, not surprisingly, where a bunch of artists get together and perform suddenly, unexpectedly, and hopefully, beautifully, in a public place. It is a kind of performance art. And the point of performance art is to draw attention to the art, so the idea of posting treasuries all at the same time was formed.

We used to try to all post our beautiful, same-themed, treasuries at exactly the same minute, but it turned out to be so hard to do that we began to lose members right and left. So we changed it to posting on the same day, and our numbers grew.

We have evolved into a fun-loving team that tries to make original, artistic treasuries that draw attention to treasuries as an art form, to promote undiscovered shops, and to do every kind of irreverent but good-natured shenanigan within the confines of Etsy that we can think of, except we don't do self-promotion per se. We are not a promo team.

We break our own rules all the time, try to remain pointless, and encourage creativity in everything we do. It might seem like a wild and crazy bunch that's hard to break into, but don't worry, we love you already. As one of our members recently wrote, this is a team "…where souls are bared and everyday trials and tribulations are confessed and discussed and hugs and support are doled out as needed."

We have lots of active threads going and it's hard to keep up sometimes, even for the leaders(!), but jump on in anywhere. You can make a treasury, post a comment, vote on your favorite treasury, post a squirrel, ask a question, spill the beans, or even start a new thread.

We really have only one rule, and that is no self-promotion, no spam. You can't post your own shops or items in threads unless you are donating something as a prize. There are lots of other teams who specialize in promotion. Not us, self-promotion around here is how pillow fights are started.

So, come on in, there's room for you in the flash mob!
