Craving NYC: Inside Etsy Labs!

Episode 5 is here.

If you're tuned into do-it-yourself blogs like Make, you've likely heard about Etsy Labs, the new work and social space opened by online craft marketplace Etsy to give its online community an offline presence. So, thanks to employees Anda Lewis and Mary Andrews, I was able to go on a fun tour of the new facilities and learn about how Etsy Labs fuses its high-tech site with old-school cottage industry. Plus, this video showcases even more of my Mooninite addiction. Mooninites are the new penguins!

And a special reminder: If you're in the NYC area, every Wednesday at 4 PM you can go to Etsy Labs for tea time.
