treasure hunt

as one who tends to be very task oriented when it comes to spending time on etsy, i am in LOVE with etsy circle and activity feed...


the activity feed is the spiral just to the right of the orange 'etsy' box in the grey bar across the top (are you blown away by my technical lingo or what?)... as you add to your circle your world will expand - 


oh the places you'll go and the people you'll meet... because when someone in your circle favorites a shop or item, you get to see what they have discovered! i don't often linger and search randomly... and i know i am missing out on magic... but let's face it, we have to make choices with our time... but now every day is a treasure hunt... 


because someone in my circle had favorited a shop - i got to meet jamie spinello above... 


tuareg necklace

and ineke hemminga's shop that benefits the nomads of the tuareg region in south algeria...

if you haven't looked into circle and the activity feed, i encourage you to do so -

do you have a feature on etsy that you would like to share? they surely do have vast resources available -

I think I 'liked' that yesterday! My husband was impressed by the work too. He said "is that metal?!" I definitely think the circles have expanded my exposure to new artists on Etsy in a pleasantly surprising way.

Wonderful finds, Mary Jane. I've yet to delve into the fun of Etsy circles myself, so I appreciate reading about your experience.

I think circles are the best thing etsy has come up with so far. I am totally enchanted by them!
