Saturday Theme Treasury Challenge - The Millionaire & His Wife

Who is the millionaire and his wife you ask?  Why, none other than Thurston B. Howell the 3rd and Lovie.  Sing along with me!  

Just sit right back and you'll hear a tale.  
A tale of a fateful trip.  
That started from this tropic port.
Aboard this tiny ship. 
Here on Gilligan's Isle!!

I opened the Etsy Finds 'Luxury Shopping Guide' email and I immediately thought of Thurston Howell the III and his wife, Lovie.  I always wondered why she packed so many clothes for a 3-hour tour.  A 3-hour tour!

This challenge is right up my alley as I have champagne taste on a beer budget!  To read the entire Finds email, click here!

For this week's challenge please curate as though you have NO budget limitations!  It's all about luxury! Think of categories such as spa & beauty, luxury travel, sport, and even specific color themes.  For instance, can you curate a treasury in one color where most items are on the high end?  Don't forget about the vintage category as there are AMAZING high end vintage items to be showcased.  

There is always a photo used to express the theme but this item does not have to be included in your treasury.

**Please note the new due date.**

The Rules:

1. Include at least 8 Curation Nation team members. 
2. Tag the treasury "curationnation" 
3. Tag the treasury "etsyteamtreasury" - if you tweet, tweet your treasury using the hashtag #EtsyTeamTreasury.
4. Tag the treasury "luxury" 
5. Post a comment here on the blog with a link to your treasury - your treasury will not be judged unless you have posted it below in the comments. Your shop could be chosen as the winner to be featured on our Wednesday Item Treasury Challenge.  
6. Put a link to this blog post in the comments of the treasury - this helps others find the challenge and enter. 
7. Please follow our blog. 
8. DUE DATE: Tuesday, July, 12. 
9. Saturday Treasury Challenges are the only challenges that get judged.

Everyone is invited to play - these challenges are open to all! These challenges are also voluntary - never mandatory for team members. Remember to try to include team mates you haven't used before.  These challenges are meant to build your treasury making skills, promote the team and make Etsy connections.  If you deal in vintage it's a great time to promote your vintage goods by making the old new again!
