BNR

I found a wonderful new abbreviation on Etsy....BNR.  What is a BNR?  It's a Buy and Replace treasury or listing.  The curator of the treasury puts together their original collection.  Some will feature friends, team members forum members, etc. and some try to stick with a theme for the collection.  The rules of the particular BNR are posted. Most commonly, if you buy an item in that treasury, you then post a comment stating what you bought and the transaction number. Then, the curator of the treasury replaces the sold item with an item from your shop.  You get exposure there until your item is purchased.  The hope is that others will look at your item and your shop and that someone will buy your item so they can get into the treasury too.  After stumbling across a BNR for $5 and under today, I decided to buy my way in.  Now one of my items is featured and people are looking at my shop.  I'll let you know later if it led to anything.  The creator of this BNR says she will delete it and start over in 2 days.
