Participating shops are promoted in several ways. Use any of these methods to include nonteamies in challenge or blitz treasuries if you'd like.
You can find participating shops...
*** on our buyer account,
*** in our current Challenge Entry thread.
You can read more about using the team tag on your items here.
The buyer account hearts participating shops so it displays the first four most recently listed items.
The buyer account will change every week, reflecting the shops that participated in the *previous* Challenge.
If you have more than one etsy account - only one shop per person will be listed in each place - the shop that you used to create your treasury for the previous challenge.
Your shop will automatically be added to the buyer account if you posted your link to the Entry thread (which is a requirement). No need to do anything else. If you don't post to the entry thread, the volunteers and the judges won't see your treasury.
If we accidentally miss adding you to the buyer account, just convo Hilary with a link to your treasury and she'll add you.
The buyer account will be updated once or twice a month. This will reflect the shops that participated the *previous* month.
