so sad!

This isn't a big deal in the grand scheme of things, but I have been ogling a very specific purse on etsy for 6 months now. I talked to the seller, and she was willing to make a smaller size for me. ($70 vs $120). And I had a good friend of mine get me a gift card to etsy for Christmas ($25) specifically so I could get this purse into a price range that wouldn't make me cry.

Well, got the listing all set up, and then I realized she doesn't take etsy giftcards!!!!!



Now I don't know what to do. I mean, there are plenty of other things that I could get on etsy that I also love, but I asked specifically for this purpose...and it was my own fault. I should have looked.

I did. I guess there are reasons she decided not to set it up (she is a pretty big seller...tons of sales).

That's what I would try. With as many people here love etsy and all the cool stuff on there, I bet it won't take long. Heck, I'd almost bet you won't even have to list it. You might get offers in this thread! If there was something I knew I wanted our needed there I'd be tempted!

I'm guessing she is either international (Etsy won't allow those shops to accept gift cards yet) or she doesn't want to have to accept direct checkout payments, she just wants her shop to be totally with Paypal.
