Shop Live on Etsy

** updated info here **

Exciting news!! The nice folks at Etsy have invited me to host the next Shop Live event tomorrow Thursday April 9 at 7pm EST - via webcam (eeeeck!). So I've been busy organizing a really fun event and calling it the 30 Minute Sale. You can also check out the facebook page for it, where you can rsvp and stuff (Thanks Danielle!)

Thirty products from 30 different artists, handpicked by me! Each artist has provided at least one listing/item specially priced for this 30-Minute SHOP LIVE sale event. Registered users can save up to 25% on regular prices and free shipping on select items. Can't make it to the event? No worries - check out these pre-sale specials going on all day long on Thursday!

Full list of participants:

If you're not familiar with Shop Live here's how it works. For 30 minutes I'll be talking about 20-30 curated products on Etsy via a live Web cam (yikes!), and buyers will have the ability to enter a "virtual auditorium" to watch the broadcast. As I talk about each product, users in the auditorium will see a product image and will have the ability to click and buy in real time. It's a really innovative format and I'm thrilled to be a part of it!

So again, please be sure to register, you need to be a registered Etsy user in order to access virtual labs and to enter the virtual auditorium. See you there!!
