The Virtual Labs are Etsy’s interactive classrooms, a place to hang out, throw paper airplanes and share skills. We’ve also started Show and Tell for Buyers, so if you have a bit of an Etsy shopping addiction, these are your peeps. Come on by and show us what you’ve bought on Etsy this week!  It’s also the last week of How-To Month, but don’t worry we’ll keep them coming in August.  Hope to see ya around the Labs!

    Hi - Just wondered. Are the labs recorded so that you could playback at a later time if you were unable to attend? I keep missing the ones I want to attend (can't get the UK/USA timing right or I turn up and the place is full!) but I'd still love to be able to learn even if I can't ask 'live' questions.

    Danielle - Thanks so much!! My Etsy voyage of discovery is just becoming more and more exciting! Thanks - I really think the How To vids are a great idea, espacially for us who are a bit sleepy when the main event is on!
