Etsy AU Staff : A Few of My Favourite Things

Mar 16, 2015

by Sarah Ponthieu handmade and vintage goods

Our PR & Communications Specialist, Sarah, grew up in sunny Queensland but moved to Melbourne (after stints in Britain and Europe) two years ago. While she occasionally misses the Queensland weather; the coffee, culture, and of course Etsy mean Melbourne is now home.

Aside from securing top-notch press opportunities for the team and our projects, Sarah is keeping busy planning her upcoming nuptials, a ‘semi-elopment’ to New York City! The couple have decided to combine the wedding with the honeymoon and say their ‘I dos’ in their favourite city (and the first place they travelled together many moons ago). A few close friends and family are going along for the adventure too – it will truly be a day to remember!


With this in mind, Sarah’s collection of favourite things have been chosen with a particular theme … can you guess what it might be?


We’ll be giving one to each of the handful of guests who are coming along on our New York wedding adventure to add some colour to the wedding ceremony. Nothing says party like confetti!



And I think I’ll need to get a clutch to take that confetti feel with me into the evening’s celebrations!


We’ve exchanged many an Able & Game card for Valentine’s, birthdays and ‘just becauses’ over the years so it will be fitting to give this to my husband-to-be on our wedding day. There may even be fist bump as part of our ceremony…


As we’re essentially eloping for our big day, we’re not actually sending out any invitations but if we were, I’d definitely be talking to the team at Santiago Sunbirds about one of their gorgeous watercolour designs.


It turns out that even an elopement requires a lot of planning. These MiGoals notebooks have been critical to keeping me organised and on track for the big day ahead!


A little something for us to hang up at home when we get back back to remind us of our epic adventures and the day we said ‘I do!’.
