|As seen on the Etsy Front Page, March 7, 2011!|
For those of you who don't know - the Etsy Front Page is (currently) the collection of 12 items on http://www.etsy.com/ that every visitor to the site sees. It's usually a cohesive group of items with the same theme, color, hot trend, etc. The Front Page collections are pulled from member-curated treasuries, which any Etsy user can create. Right now, there are 475,000 active treasuries on Etsy. The folks that run Etsy, called the Etsy Admin, will select one particularly beautiful treasury to put on their front page, and the collection changes every hour. The chance that a treasury you create, or a treasury that you are featured in, will actually make the Front Page is very, very small (except in the case a few, ok a lot, of Etsy Admin's favorite sellers. These folks can hit the Front Page several times a day. It's not fair. But I won't go there, because for rest of us sellers, its an unexpected honor!). Thus, if you are lucky enough to be featured, its a huge deal. It's usually a screaming, jumping up and down, and texting your other Etsy friends kind of occasion - at least it was with me!

I hope this is the first of many Front Page features!
