Combining the Art of Treasury Curation and Supporting Hurricane Sandy Relief Efforts

9 Feb

On Etsy (.com) registered members (only takes a moment to sign up!) can create “treasuries.” A treasury features 16 items being sold on Etsy (and there are millions of items to choose from!) to create a theme, express a feeling, feature a shop or an item, themed by color, and there are many more trends and options for making your treasury.

The Etsy Treasury Trendsetters Team makes “Treasuries for a Cause.” This round we are making treasuries which feature several amazing items in which part or all of the sale money will benefit Hurricane Sandy Relief Efforts. With Blizzard Nemo currently hitting the northeast hard, these relief efforts are needed now more than ever.

You can also search “Hurricane Sandy Relief” in the Etsy search bar and find items benefiting this important effort.

Please consider buying yourself or a loved one something truly special and know the money is going to a great cause.

Below is a sampling to several links of aforementioned treasuries made thus far……. enjoy the ART viewing experience and please consider purchasing one of the benefiting items:
