Treasury Etiquette 101

We all know that every place has a set of unwritten "rules". The treasury on Etsy is no different. I am by no means an expert, but these are just some things I have noticed that make treasury life nicer.

That's all for now! Be sure to checkout my facebook... haha just kidding!
