Ree Leibrand from RaggedyRee says
Um, did Dev take one look around and run away?
DT: Sorry for disappearing. I finally found my way back from the bathroom. Etsy's front door was locked and I don't have my key card yet. Yikes. Did I mention I just started today?
Angela Curtis from AllThingsGranny says
Welcome Aboard !!!
DT: Thank you! It's good to be here. The offices are really cool.
Chris from CopperLeafStudios says
If we currently have a Trunkt account (i.e. lifetime membership), what will happen to it?
DT: I was finally able to put up the announcement to Trunkt members on the Trunkt blog ( trunkt.tumblr.com
) which was supposed to go first. All the relevant questions from Trunkt members will be answered there and not here on Etsy.
Caroline from peaseblossomstudio says
How can Trunkt benefit us if we are not a member and membership is currently closed?
DT: Trunkt will not change for existing members but I won't be accepting any new members on Trunkt while I focus my attention on my work at Etsy.
jill from jill2day says:
I would like to know more about how to wholesale OOAK items. Does this make wholesaling impossible, or at least much more difficult?
DT: Not at all. Many Trunkt members make OOAK items and sell them to boutiques and galleries on a wholesale basis. Wholesale does not equal mass production. Wholesale only describes a relationship where you sell your item(s) for a price that lets a retailer mark it up to make a profit when they sell it to their customer. Anyone of any size can do wholesale.

I'm rather interested in learning how this will be integrated with Etsy.
DT: Me too! Did I mention I just started today? Obviously, this news leaked a little early and we weren't ready to announce anything. This is just the beginning of a thoughtful and thorough process that will involve all of you. We want to build something that works and is very, very useful to the Etsy community. Doing that will take some time and I thank you, in advance, for your patience.
Elle from AustinModern says
Trunkt was one person??
DT: Yeah, me! Now I'm off to find a security guard. Everyone's gone and I don't know the alarm code.
