Do you have a special event coming up? A wedding or baby shower, perhaps? Well, you’re in luck! Registry website MyRegistry.com allows you to set up an online gift registry for items from any store you want, on or offline — including Etsy! Now you can ask for the gift that you want, from anywhere you want, and make sure you’re getting a rad piece of hand-crafted jewelry instead of a waffle maker. Best of all — I can’t believe I’m even saying this — it’s free. What more could you ask for?
In other registry related news, Etsy baby showers have been going strong! To those that aren’t familiar, I’ll allow ficklefaerie to explain:
[From the forums…]
We hold a baby shower for all the expectant mom’s on Etsy. Usually every three months. Shops that are interested in donating a gift will convo me. They send a baby gift to the mom I assign them. Free of charge completely.The gift you send is totally up to the shop. Last shower we had over 75 shops send gifts to 15 mom’s. Each mom recieved 5 gifts each.
The mom’s have to send me a pic of each gift they recieved and then socaligirl posts the gifts on flickr for everyone to see. Sort of like a big giant treasury. We post as often as we can to get the shops that donated some extra promotion.
P.P.S. Also, check out TheThingsIWant.com. Another great registry site. And I really do like waffles, just not too many waffles.
