Amazon's Universal Wishlist

I discovered something on Amazon a few weeks ago that I think will be quite a boon to those of us selling on Etsy. You can now add ANYTHING to your Amazon Wishlist. TELL YOUR FAMILY! TELL YOUR FRIENDS!

It used to be hard to make a list for someone with Etsy items - they were likely unfamiliar with Etsy and had to look up items by links or by usernames. Now they can just cruise on over to your Amazon wishlist and start shopping (for more than the usual books and cds).

If you already have an Amazon wishlist, all you have to do is go to it. On the left side of the screen, you will see the above logo. Click it and download the toolbar attachment. Then anytime you find something you'd like to add to your wishlist, be it on Etsy or Pottery Barn or L.L. Bean, click the toolbar link and it will pop up a window where you just enter the price. Then it adds it to your list! Brilliant!
