Celebrating Etsy Team Spirit

Dec 21, 2012

by Morgan Evans

Etsy.com handmade and vintage goods

As the Internet opens our world to new people and opportunities around the globe, investing in genuine communities that foster a spirit of connectedness becomes increasingly important. That’s where Etsy Teams come in. Earlier this year, we put out the call for community members to nominate Etsy Teams that exhibit exceptional amounts of team spirit. A record number of votes poured in, and you told us how imporant these teams are, not only to your businesses, but also to your personal lives.

We read every single nomination, and your stories of friendship, support, mentorship and promotion confirmed that a unique sense of camaraderie truly powers the heart of the Etsy Teams community. We want to give a special shout-out to the 10 teams who received the highest number of nominations:

Two members of the Ukrainian Artists team.

  1. Vintage Jewelry Sellers — Building awareness of Etsy as a vintage jewelry venue
  2. Promotional Frenzy Team — All about gaining visibility
  3. Etsy Vintage Elite — Dedicated to marketing vintage
  4. Etsy Italia Team —  Italian Etsy sellers in Italy and abroad
  5. SF Etsy Street Team — Local street team for sellers in the San Francisco Bay Area
  6. Female Photographers of Etsy — Photographers from around the world
  7. Pattern Patter Team — Collectors, sellers and creators of sewing patterns
  8. Old Farmhouse Gathering — Artisans with an old-fashioned flair
  9. With Love — Front Page curators with a heart
  10. Sunshine Farm Girl Co-op — Friendly folks who advertise cooperatively

Congrats to all of the organizations above for the impressive number of votes they earned! Even more than numbers, the touching testimonials we received from folks nominating teams told the story of what Etsy Teams are all about. A few excerpts:

ElevenHandmade

Latvia Team at a meetup.

“As a part of the CAST team, I feel a sense of belonging. This team is always there for each other in innumerable ways, from helping a member with the expense of an international adoption by donations of artwork for an online auction to purchasing a wedding gown for a member bride by PayPal donations for fabric and a stipend for a team seamstress to make it. During Hurricane Sandy, a Canadian team member actually phoned the police in the New Jersey town of a team member we hadn’t heard from. Police checked. She was okay.” — Christian Artists Street Team

sammysgrammy

Members of the Christian Artists Street Team.

“Our team has offered a strong sense of unity, support and connection over a common interest — Etsy and creativity!” — Western Austalia Street Team

“Although we’ve never met, many of us feel as though our teammates are our life-long best friends! There is genuine love among us, generosity, sharing and support.” — Homespun Society

“This is a group of women (and a few men) who are all competitors in the same business, but we have this really unique group [that is] willing to share ideas and resources.  I think that is pretty unprecedented. We have built a support network that cheers us along on our business and personal journeys.” — Handstamping Crazies

ShinyRabbit

Educational event with the Western Australia Street Team.

“We are friends, and share our lives, families, joys and sorrows with other members. I look forward to it every day, and as soon as I get my first cup of coffee, I have to see what the team is up to in the discussion thread.” Quiltsy

EmSewCrazy

Emsewcrazy from the Pattern Patter Team.

“It is more than a team; it is a support group. It is like the old sewing groups of the Colonial period. We have all become great virtual friends and it has been a source of wisdom and strength as we travel life’s road together.” — Pattern Patter

“I never really felt part of any group until I joined this team. The members are fun, caring, and really trying to make a difference in the world.” — Queer Etsy Street Team

“This team is a community of artists who know each other by name, celebrate sales, life’s milestones, and sympathize when things are not so peachy. I have learned so much from the team leaders and find Etsy to be a warm and inviting marketplace because of them.” — Supporting Artists

“Being a member of EGST has saved me a fortune in psychotherapy since talking with each other on a daily basis, interconnecting and sending out good energy makes me feel at ease. Most of all, this team has achieved something amazing: giving warmth through the coldness of a computer screen!” — Etsy Greek Street Team

J. Astra Brinkmann

Leaders of SFEtsy.

“This team is the epitome of the word ‘community’! Members have called it their ‘soft place to land’ and appreciate the sincere support. As one member put it, ‘When one of us gets cut, we all bleed a little.’ This team is small in number, but not in strength or faith! There have been many, many times that we have pulled together and prayed, sent energy, light and good will.”
—   Integrity of Vintage Team

We will be working hard over the next few months to reward each team and its leadership for a job well done in 2012, highlighting featured teams in upcoming editions of our newsletter, so be sure to sign up to get stories and community updates delivered straight to your inbox.

Thanks to everyone who participated in this year’s Team Spirit Award campaign for all of your participation in our community!

    To witness all of this collective enthusiasm is why teams flourish and do what they do best. Congratulations to all winners, all teams, and all teams who did not make the cut this year, because everyone here is a winner (to me). The humanitarian effort that is alive and well at the With Love team reaches out to folks who are new, and provides a special short-term boost... we can all relate to "beginning." The team helps make a difference to many new sellers / shops on a continuing basis ... from the heart. Thank you team leaders for all of your efforts ... and for making a difference. And to Etsy, a huge thank you! Happy Holiday Season to everyone!

The members are knowledgeable and kind and fun to work with. But, Jewels of Hope pushes them to even greater plateaus of teamwork. I never knew pride in a TEAM until now. Thanks to ALL of them!

    Kathryn from cherrylippedroses said 4 years ago

    ...to be a small shop owner ANYWHERE can be daunting and difficult and amazingly scarey. When I became a member of the VJSE group team I was fantastically made aware of how important they thought EACH owner is and made a welcome I have rarely witnessed. I am proud to be on a team that believes in consistent give and take and shouts each other on to greater heights...and, they care enough to give back to others. Sounds like LIFE, doesn't it?

Teams have been a HUGE part of my learning; I certainly know how to make our magnets and I know a lot about business, but the actual workings of Etsy to gain the maximum benefit has all been acquired through teams. A special thank you to all of the Team Leaders who volunteer so much time to give reviews and guidelines for success. Fredda The Magnificent Magnet http://www.themagnificentmagnet.etsy.com

    I recently joined a couple of teams, and found a whole lot of support, encouragement, and constructive criticism of my shop. It's all about helping each other out. Teaming is a great experience-if you haven't joined a team, just do it! You'll be glad you did!!!!

    I love the idea and I am happy to be part of the Etsy community. I think that the shop for a cause is just a wonderful idea. I have been promoting this idea for many years through my own charity, the Ethiopian children's appeal and now my on line charity boutique, Schoolery: Jewels for Schools. thanks again

    Mythical propaganda, that was my first take on teams starting my shop. But now I'm utterly a convert. A team lead me to two mentors, help sorting out my shop. And I've even started collaborating on two projects (one with a shop in Washington, and one in Italy). My health has made my world very small, but Etsy has made my world big again. XOA

    Libby Boyer from KittyKatGlassDesigns said 3 years ago

    I have been on many teams in the three years I've been on Etsy. Only one has been worthwhite: the Simply the Best team. I just decided to close my shop, and the team leaders threw a "going away" party for me, you might say. They ran a treasury contest to promote my shop, resulting in 15 sales (1/4 of my total sales for the year!) in just 2 days. Many of the sales were to team members! They are really the best people I've met on Etsy. I highly recommend this team.
