Etsy's at 325 Gold Street, in the Clocktower Building.

"On Flatbush, right next to the Toren Tower and the Mobil Station." - Instructions on how to get to Esty offline

From Last Friday: Where the heck am I? Why so late? I just got back from visiting the folks at Etsy in Brooklyn and stayed way too long because it was too fun. Etsy, though a bit younger than AT, has grown quickly as buyers and sellers of handmade items have flocked to the one good place they can all get together. And it's not just about purple tea cozy's anymore....

Welcome to Etsy!

Etsy sellers are now dealing in artwork, furniture and housewares and Etsy's blog, The Storque, is doing video How-To's and currently filming house tours all over the country to show off handmade decor and collections. It's a full on online commune over there. Following are a few pics of their offices that will give you the local flavor and a behind the scenes look. Enjoy and thanks to Matt and Christina for having us out!

In an old printing company, the new crafty style has taken root

The main room where customer service is taken care of

The executive offices of the old printing company were all wood paneled. While the rest of the floor is concrete and windows, there is a beautiful row of wood paneled offices.

On a lower floor is we visited the Etsy Labs, where classes are held once a week and video's are shot

This is the main room. There's another off to the right.
