Hey guys! Just wanted to give you all a quick update on some recent buzz the Etsy Labs has been generating for Etsy in the press both on and off the internet! Over the past several weeks that the Labs have been hosting open houses (that we call tea parties), events, trunk shows, and classes, lots of interested and curious researcher folk have stopped in to ask questions, take photos, and document exactly what Etsy is and what it is doing not only in Brooklyn but as a website globally! Here are a few of many press blurbs to look out for in the next couple weeks about Etsy as a whole that was generated by the Labs space:
- The official photographers for “The” Paper magazine stopped in a couple weeks ago to snap some action shots with all of us in the Labs environment! So keep a look out for the article about Etsy and the interview with Rob about the site coming out in the next issue!! The Labs are also the executive offices of Etsy, and the crazy environment we all work and craft in provided the perfect place for the photo shoot!
- Kayte Terry, writer of a new column for GetCrafty.com stopped by the Labs last week to learn about what the space has to offer, all about how it relates to Etsy and all of the users that can’t be here in person, and snapped a bunch of photos to include in her next column for Get Crafty! You can check out the article by clicking here.
- Rob and Corrine of Threadbanger stopped by during their trip to NYC and spent the afternoon videotaping all of us and interviewing Rob, Vanessa, Anda and MAKE magazine (who shares our space). Threadbanger is an awesome website and their oft-hilarious Threadhead videos are not to be missed.
- You can check out this blurb about the classes we have to offer on one of the latest Design Sponge posts. Each class we host here at the Labs creates a unique opportunity to talk more with people about Etsy and what it has to offer as both a buyer and a seller in a comfortable, fun, and positive environment.
We'll keep you in the loop as we keep working hard each day to generate the Etsy Buzz!
