Call for Etsy Shops!

We had an amazing response for our first day of recruiting participants yesterday!  In case you missed it, the Summer 2010 Etsy Baby Shower is starting!  The Etsy Baby Shower tradition was started more than 3 years ago. Since then, the Etsy Baby Shower has occurred several times a year! For this shower, your hosts will be Jessica from BuggaLove and Deniz from DecorativeLabels. We would be so grateful if you would consider participating in the Summer 2010 Etsy Baby Shower!

We Need Etsy Shops...
Donating shops must be willing to donate a gift(s) free of charge, including shipping, to the mom(s) they are assigned. In the past we have included any shop that makes baby items. This is not a team event and you do not have to be a member of a team to donate a gift for this shower. Everyone is welcome!
If you want to participate as a donating shop, please reply to this email with the following information:

1. Your name, Etsy shop name, and email address
2. How many moms would you like to donate to?
3. Do you have a gender preference for your gift (s)?
4. What country are you in?
5. Can you ship internationally?

Many of the showers have had the continued support of the same shops each time and we applaud you for your unending generosity. We hope that you’ll be able to participate again and are looking forward to hearing from you.


For the Summer 2010 Etsy Baby Shower, we would like to give gifts to 20 moms who are due between May 1, 2010 to August 31, 2010 and our goal is to provide 4 gifts to each mom. That means we need to raise 84 donated gifts (we have at least one set of twins so far)!


Unfortunately, we will not be able to use the Etsy forums to help get the word out about the Etsy Baby Shower to moms and shops who might be interested. In the past, the forums have accounted for 40-50% of our participants. We would greatly appreciate it if you would forward this information, or our blog link, to any shops (or teams that you are a member of) who you think might be interested in participating in the Etsy Baby Shower.

Want to RECEIVE gifts from the Etsy Baby Shower?
Are you a member of Etsy? Are you pregnant? If you are/were due May 1, 2010 to August 31, 2010 you may be eligible to receive gifts in the Winter 2010 Etsy Baby Shower!

Eligibility Requirements:
1. You must have purchased at least 5 items on Etsy.
2. You may not have received gifts as a mom in the Winter 2010 Etsy Baby Shower.
3. You must be willing to provide a photo of your gifts to us for our Flickr album. We may also ask that you spread the baby shower love through whatever other social media you might participate in currently.

We had an incredible response yesterday from moms-to-be.  We're just confirming our last few moms who will receive gifts. We will start a waiting list when we reach our capacity. Historically, we have been able to include a few moms who have been wait-listed.

Want to be added to the waiting list?  Email us and provide your name, Etsy UserName, location, email address, baby's sex (if known), and due date or birth-date of your baby.
