 Seriously just spent a super long time on etsy... Where did those 2 hours go???LOL There is some many awesome things to look at on that site. I think I'm getting ideas for my DIY's. As soon as I get home from Africa the fun begins.. =) Anyone else  addicted like me? :P

LOL I think we all are.

I have bought a tonne of stuff off of etsy, too much to list!

I even shopped on Etsy before I was engaged.

 

Great site.

I have bought off etsy before but only soaps. Never really took the time to browse. Now that I have something to shop for... I'm in big trouble.. I think I have decided to grab inspiration and see if I can make what I like myself. I love crafts so I am really looking forward to getting back to civilization so I can get to work!!  :D

I know a few brides who take inspiration from there and make things themselves.  I have done it too, others I just can't replicate the same so pay for it LOL!!!!

 

I think I like the high of waiting for something to come in the mail, because I swear I am done shopping but continue to find things I could purchase :)

I've done lots of looking but I haven't purchased anything. I'm just wondering how is the shipping and wait time on things? since you all seem to be professionals :)

It really depends on how quick the owner of the shop is. They usually post about in their terms. I read their reviews first!!

Depends how quick the seller ships (which is listed in their policies section of their listing), also where you live and where they are shipping from.

 

For USA to Canada I would give anywhere between 1-3 weeks.  Generally I get things in 2 weeks, but have had some come as quick as 1 week, and some longer at 3-3.5 weeks.

 

I have ordered 2 things from the UK and got them both in 3 weeks.

 

I have considered ordering from China, but being about 2.5 months out I am a little nervous too.

 

I also look for any Canadian shops too (you can search for Canadian shops to see - options on left side).  Have ordered a few things from Canadian sellers which of course come the quickest since I am in Canada lol

I love etsy. It's almost like youtube, where you start off with one video, then you look at the suggestions on the side and before you know it you've been sitting there for 2 hours hahha. 

 

I'm so reluctant all the time to buy things off of etsy. I find that usually when I love everything I don't buy anything because I can't decide. I've been looking at some jewellery for the wedding and I can't decide what I like better. Same thing with the hair piece. I have a few favorites but I think I should do a hair trial before deciding what style would look better. 

 

I also use it for inspiration. I'm quite crafty so I can usually find a way to replicate things if they're not too complicated :).
