    My bestfriend and I are joining together. All the members of Etsy want to watch it grow and be a part of it so we should do our part and join a team to learn more on how to spread the word and advertise whats going on. Thanks for the article, I hope the numbers keep piling high!

    andreapratt - not by any means! there are teams all over the world, and anyone can join a "global" team, meaning sellers united not by location, but by interest, who meet up virtually. it's so nice to see so many positive comments about teams! etsy teams are amazing!
