Etsy Artists of Color Scavenger Hunt

Come play this week to win a basket with wonderful handcrafted items in a variety of media. Discover some great new artists and have fun along the way! You must be an Etsy member to win, both buyers and sellers are welcome! No purchase is necessary to win. Members of the Artists of Color Team are not eligible to win. You can find more details on the team blog at

How to play?

Visit each of the participating EAOC shops below and look through the pictures in their shop listings (recent sold items included). Some shops will contain one picture of a "letter" hiding in one of their shop listings. Search through the participating shops and jot down the "letter" and the name of the shop you have found the letter in.

After you have found all of the letters (15 total), then unscramble them to complete a word. When you think you have solved the puzzle, please convo Calidora at with your entry and your name, if you are correct your name will go into a drawing to win the prize basket. (Only one entry per member.)

Contest ends at 12 midnight EST, March 31st. All correct entries will be entered into a drawing and the winner will be selected at random and announced on Tuesday, April 1st. The lucky winner will be contacted by ‘convo’ on Etsy and the results will be posted in the forums and on our team blog.

Good Luck!
