Welcome to the New Etsy Baby Shower Blog

Hello and Welcome to the new Etsy Baby Shower Blog!

Started by June from FickleFaerie in 2007, the Etsy Baby Shower has become a Semi-Annual event. During the Fall 2009 Baby Shower, the hosting torch has been passed to Jessica from BuggaLove and Deniz from DecorativeLabels.

What is the Etsy Baby Shower?

The Etsy Baby Shower is a semi-annual event in which a number of expecting and brand new Etsy mommies receive gifts from donating Etsy shops. We are currently in the middle of the Fall 2009 Etsy Baby Shower. We are currently at capacity for moms and donating shops!

Want to participate in the Next Baby Shower?

DONATING SHOPS: Donating shops must be willing to donate a gift, free of charge (including shipping) to the mom they are assigned. In return, we help to promote your shop through different activities. We blog about your shop, include pictures of your gifts in our Flickr Album, and run other activities on Etsy to promote you!

In the past we have included any shop that makes baby items. You do not have to be a member of a team to donate a gift for this shower. Everyone is welcome! Email us and provide your name, shop name, and email address . We will add you to the mailing list and you will receive an email when we are recruiting shops for the next shower.

MOMMIES: Stay tuned! We will be sharing the due date window for eligibility for the Winter 2010 shower soon! Other eligibility requirements include:

1. You must have purchased at least 5 items on Etsy to participate
2. You be willing to provide an appreciation photo of each gift.

Please note there is a maxium # of mommies per shower and it is first come, first served based on eligibility. Our goal is to provide each Mom with 4 gifts!

Have a look at this Storque article that the baby shower has been featured in previously! And our Flickr Baby Shower Album has over 8,000 views and counting!

Many of these showers have had the continued support of the same shops each time and they should be applauded for their unending generosity. Check out blogs by BuggaLove and DecorativeLabels to learn more about the donating shops who participated in the Fall 2009 Etsy Baby Shower!
