In case you missed it...

We thought this was a lovely, well thought out and carefully executed treasury, but it was not to be. It lasted nearly 24 hours, but was deleted by cruel humourless Etsy admin.

And here we were rooting for the front page.

so done with etsy by now said...

Can I get a promo poster with that treasury? Great job!

Etsybitch Fan said...

Classic. It probably would have made the front page if you had sprinkled in an item or two from some of the Admin sellers...

forum rubbernecker said...

That. Is. Awesome.
No FP? Oh, that's right, no cowl, and no ugly suitcase.
I am sure some do gooder reported it so it would be deleted, most likely someone breathlessly awaiting the next Treasury opening because they know if they curate one, it'll hit the FP.
I don't know why admin thinks we are not on to the little FP game. All one has to do is be able to count.
Why, Etsy, why? And most importantly what would Maria Thomas have to say about the admin doing this? Hmm....

foxaz said...

you've outdone yourself, truly.

I want the poster, too- Or perhaps a set of thank you cards...

mintcondition said...

i love you guys!!

The Disgruntled One said...

Good grief. They deleted it? Some people have no sense of humor.

creativeneurosis said...

seriously, that is the funniest fucking thing I've seen in a while. thanks for the belly laugh, I needed it!

incognito for the moment said...

youz guyz outdid yourselves indeed.


brilliant.

formerengineer said...

The first Admin to realise what was going on probably had to delete it in case one of the others put it on the FP.

I'd buy the poster too, to put on the studio wall while I'm contemplating how to QYDJ and make it work :P

too old for Etsy said...

YOu are so clever!! I had to look at it three times before I figured it out.
Probably senility.

Top Shelf Totes said...

Please offer this as poster! The proceeds could go to a cause (just not to Etsy.org, please :-).

Freakin' brilliant!

dookie said...

LOVE IT!

life-during-wartime said...

Wow, that is what I call ballz! Loved it!

I dream of someday getting a treasury and filling it with items of women's clothing for bust measurement 28-32 which are described as fitting 'medium' or 'large' in the title. I wanna call it A BIG HELPING OF FRIED EGGS.

Malacologist said...

That is brilliant! I love it!!

geek said...

Oh wow, that's hilarious. Nice photos and products chosen, too!

Totally FP-worthy :)

Eveline said...

That is sooo cool. Can't believe it lasted that long though, that just tells you they don't pay attention at all.

Autonomous Artisans said...

Such a pity. I wanted to see this on the front page. Etsy's had a sense of humour bypass.

Dore said...

I fucking love you guys.

buddy said...

Oh that's just too funny!!

I'm sure this one will make the FP though:

The Cranky One said...

Before it died it had over 150 views and maxed out the comments.

organidog said...

Sell me the rights,please. I want to open a Cafe Press shop and make tee shirts, mugs, and hoodies and send them to the EtsyCrap staff.

Art Deco Bitch said...

You guys are bad!

*chuckles quietly to self*

More, please.

Tatyana said...

I'm surprised they got it actually

woolies said...

That is fucking classic. I need a blown-up version for my office/studio. Where I'm so NOT making a living.

Gracie said...

Too funny (they are the "cranky" ones obviously if they pulled it down)

no sense of humour, sucks to be them

MI Zombie said...

LMAO! I love it!

Well you know they say(on deleting it) some times the truth hurts!

Etsy = Failz!~

photoadele said...

that is hilarious and they used my friend's LARK ring too!

Amanda said...

har har, good one!

Apparently the admins at Etsy never read Voltaire either.

Bright Circle said...

After 'etsy' I still can't figure out what it says.

TheSneakyOne said...

write it out on a piece of paper if that helps
