EKTT Weekly Treasury Challenge: Spring Holidays or Red Riding Hood

The winner of our latest weekly treasury challenge, SquishyBee on Etsy, wants to celebrate Spring Holidays with the EtsyKids Treasury Team!  To add a new dimension to this week's challenge let's head to the movies:  HOP opens April 1st and Red Riding Hood is already a trending topic for April's Merchandising Report.  We've already had one EKTT treasury make the front page of Etsy for the movie theme Red Riding Hood--let's curate more for Etsy's home page!

April Fools' Day, Easter, or Mother's Day
Focus Items:  April Fools treasuries will focus on practical jokes, gag gifts, and silly handmade and vintage items...tickle our funny bones!  Easter and Mother's Day treasuries will be tagged with these dates:  Mothering Sunday, April 3; Easter, April 24; and Mother's Day, May 8.  Mother's Day or Mothering Sunday:  personalization options, pampering, jewelry, creative framing and photo displays, gadget accessories, flower and bud vases, planters, home decor, and cards for Mother's Day, spring gardening, flowers, spring fashion basics in lighter materials, open-toe shoes, sunglasses, and hair accessories.   Easter:  HOP the movie (click to see trailer),  bright and pastel colors, bunnies, rabbits, eggs, baskets, candy, toys, children's spring formal attire, and religious mementos.
