Curating a treasury

One of my favorite features of Etsy is the "Treasury." Treasuries are member curated collections, each one lasts 2-3 days and it is a serious challenge to get a spot in the treasury lists. The window of opportunity opens for 30-60 seconds when the number of treasuries drops below 333 for the Main Treasury or 222 for Treasury West. The number rise and fall a little unpredictably, and depending on the time of day the numbers start to get close to the "opening" there could be 700+ people waiting for that tiny window of opportunity. The process is a little addicting and always feels like you have won something when you manage to grab a spot on the list. All that said, I got one yesterday! I hope you enjoy looking at it.
