The SPS Team Shop on Etsy: Browse, Buy, Promote, or Curate A Treasury Collection

Been by the SPS Team Shop lately?  If not, come discover the SPS Team's wonderful array of offerings in 18 categories from Accessories to Weddings.  Make a treasury, favorite or pin items you like, or just explore your teammates' shops.  If you're shopping for anything, support your teammates by checking the team shop first!

The link to the team shop is always posted on the SPS Team home page.  It is:

How does the Team Shop work?
  • The SPS Team Shop showcases items from active SPS team members' shops. If you post regularly on any of the team threads (like Clickathon, Fresh Picks, "Best in Show," or the Weekend Treasury game, etc.), chances are good you already have multiple items listed in the team shop.
  • Only 3-4 items from an individual shop are added at one time.  Additional items (another set of 3-4) from a shop are added the next time the shop is updated. This allows for variety in the pages of the shop, creating a colorful, lively sampler of the diverse offerings from team shops.

Making Treasuries using our Team Shop collection

To make a treasury using the team shop, you can choose a category--like Vintage Fashion or Home Decor and browse those collections.  Or you can start with a key word, like Heart or Aqua, and search all categories using the search bar on the top right of the main shop page.  Here are some of the listings I found searching 'Beach:'  Looks like the start to a treasury to me!

Once upon a time I wanted to grow up to be an artist. As it turned out, I became an English teacher (which I loved) and a mother of two amazing children (which I loved) and somehow I never found much time for art. When I started crafting, it was like a flip got switched. There is now paint and paper, shells and driftwood, beads and more beads!! spread all over my kitchen and I feel like a child who doesn't want to stop playing...
