Treasury East!!!

This going to be short and sweet, but I wanted to post on the new treasury option that's available on Etsy...the beta rollout of Treasury East. It's been in the works for awhile now, and was finally lauched to the community last week.

I have not personally curated a treasury on there - yet - but many of my Oh Canada! teammates have, and it looks like a lot of fun, and a great way to get some more exposure. Here are a few examples of the forerunners in this new medium...

and "Oh Canada Team Treasury!" by 2MuchYarn

There are a few differences between this new treasury venue and the Main and West treasuries. For example, it's 4 across, not 3 across. Might not seem like much to some people, but on my small laptop screen that's the difference between scrolling and not scrolling to see the entire thing, so I give that a thumbs-up!!! Note as well the social networking features on the right-hand side of the screen.

A potential drawback (timewise) to this new treasury option is that if you want to "click" to add "hotness" is that you have to use your browser's backspace button as the items featured do not open in a new window like they do with the other treasuries. But you are able to see the view and clicks on the same page as the treasury itself, rather than navigating back to the main treasury list as with the other two.

I'm gathering my sources together and will be curating a T-East soon. Look for it to be featured here, as well as a step-by-step how-to explanation.
