Really, I LOVE ETSY!

Yesterday afternoon I was reading one of my favorite blogs, WeddingBee and one of my favorite "bees" Miss Perfume, posted about her gorgeous invites! Read her post here!
She used Etsy and their wonderful Alchemy service to find someone to create her invites.
You may be feeling somewhat confused after reading those first few sentences, but here's what you really need to know...
If you are looking for a particular item, wedding related or not, you can use this service to obtain bids on what it is your looking for!
For instance, you desperately need a blue necklace, with a vintage look, to complete an outfit your wearing for your birthday party.
Well head over to the Alchemy section of Etsy and fill out the form with a description of what your looking for and the price range your looking to stay in.
Different Etsy shops will send you bids and their description of what they can make for you.
It's genius! I just submitted my first request this morning and I'm so anxious for feedback!
Hope this wasn't confusing!
Let me know if you have any questions and I promise to give you an update of my experience with this service in a few days.

  1. I used Alchemy for our rehearsal/dinner invites. I got 14 replies within 24 hours! I'm thinking of using it for a couple more things, too. It's easier than wading through all of the listings.

  2. I just placed my first Alchemy request the other day and had 3 responses in the first 30 minutes! I love it! :)
