HGTV and Etsy – HGTV Treasury Challenge 2011

I wish I had cable. I’ll have to wait for this episode to arrive on the web, but stay tuned, ’cause HGTV’s Design on a Dime show on December 10 at 8p/7c will feature Etsy!

Now, I’m new to being a seller on Etsy (shop at Creative Salvage for fun vintage stuff, toot toot!) but I’ve been a buyer for several years and an admirer for quite some time. Even our wedding save-the-dates were from Etsy. So, I when I read this post today on HGTV’s blog, asking Etsians to contribute treasuries based on HGTV themes that they might feature on their blog, I pounced.I love helping promote the excellent eye (vintage pickers!) and handicraft (artisans!) in this amazing Etsy community. I couldn’t resist.

We rent, so apartment nesting is near and dear to my heart. That’s why I hunted down some lovely vintage, industrial, and charming items to add to my treasury, which I called “For Rent: Home Sweet Apartment.”

So, without further ado, here it is! I hope you will stop by and check out each of these shops. I would buy everything in this treasury if I had the funds. Enjoy!

‘For Rent: Home Sweet Apartment’ by creativesalvage

These items add a fun vibe to the standard white-box rental, while at the same time providing essential function. It’s a little bit natural, a little bit industrial, a little bit retro, and a whole lot of sweet.
