I have just opened a brand new Etsy Shop called the Transylvanian Trove. It sells design and vintage fashion accessories and jewelry pieces from Transylvania, Romania, in an attempt to promote the creativity of the region's people at affordable prices. Unlike my other Etsy shops - Goddess Gruia - selling my own art works - and the Proper Leather Studio - selling our family's handmade leather products - this shop is an experiment in marketing as well, with a different approach - low prices, good quality products and following the painstaking indications for Etsy selling. Let's see how it goes!
The Transylvanian Trove includes brooches, pins, earrings, necklaces and bracelets, some created and worn during communist Romania, other a bit more recent, created by participants at the first art fairs I have organized in my home town of Cluj-Napoca (the heart of Transylvania). Here are some of the items in my shop:
