Etsy-Dave Comes to Houston!

Last Friday at Boheme Cafe and Wine Bar, there was an Etsy meetup with Dave, Etsy's Social Media Coordinator and the gals from H-town Etsy!

We did have lots of questions for Dave regarding our shops on Etsy... We discussed the different ways to photograph our shop items, also that we can register for shop critiques in the Etsy Labs! I also learned about AlternaCraft, an event organized at Boheme Cafe and Wine Bar by Galina, one of the H-town Etsy members. The first AlternaCraft took place this past February, and was apparently a great success, so she is planning to host another one, on 15 May 2011 from 12-6pm. Submissions are due by April 1st!

We all had a great time- hopefully they will send Dave back sometime, and maybe some more Etsy peeps as well!


  1. I'm glad it was a very successful meetup! You got lots of great info. Coincidently, photographing our shop items was the topic for our AOH March 15th meeting.
    I hope Etsy Dave will get back to the Houston area one day in the not too far future.


  2. Thanks Pam! I hope Dave comes back to Houston, so you all can meet him too. I think we should have an "All Etsy Peeps in Houston" gathering, just for fun sometime... :)
