    And that was what I assumed, and why I thought it notable that I've never seen them. I thought to myself "well, they'd be right in by the canened tuna and salmon, and I've seen the sardines (bought some for a green goddess dressing recipe), but I've never seen shrimp". Just found it interesting.

    Why can't I ever see the comments on the Register's webpage? It says there are comments, I clock in the icon but nothing happens. Help!

Just curious if anyone's ever actually shopped there and what they got. I've seen lots of cool stuff, but never actually bought.

    a close friend puts her pottery on there so I've looked at it on there a couple times, but never ordered anything off of it. FB friend last year had a wedding registry there - they were registered for all sorts of handmade dishes and serve ware type stuff. I thought that was pretty cool.

    I bought a sweet *** belt buckle on Etsy once. Inexpensive as well, for a hand made product. Very satisfied the one time I've shopped there.

    I'm not sure that I like reading that ebola isn't super dangerous to the US because it kills its population faster than it can spread.

    Though the day that thing figures out airborne transfer, we are in deep doo-doo.

    If the register's comments are like any other internet news pages' comments sections...your life is probably better not being able to see them.

    I don't visit the site, but one DIL has an Etsy store, and is doing very well with it. It's a good thing for her...she gets to work from home. With four kids, ages 8 (almost 9) down to 19 mos, that's huge. :)

    She sells templates for customized, themed children's party favors (invitations, name cards, thank you notes, etc). She now has hired an employee and is branching out into actually making the favors and shipping them. Boggles the mind what people will buy!

    My 7 year old has viral stomach flu. The doctor said he's in for up to 10 days of vomiting. He's on day 5. Poor baby.

    10 days seems like a lot.

    I purchased a guest book and some favors for my SIL's baby shower. I purchased from two different sellers, and it went smoothly. My feeling about purchasing from Etsy would be like purchasing from eBay. Buyer beware/mileage may vary/etc.
