On the Today Show this morning! Does Etsy have a PR Department?

Like a lot of other sellers I try not to keep all my eggs in the Etsy basket. I'm on a couple of other sites and even though I may not get a lot of sales from those sites it can certainly help to get seen.

I have a shop on Cargoh.com and through their Marketing/PR department, was given the opportunity to have my monogram vases on the Today Show this morning. Here is the clip: video.today.msnbc.msn.com/today/48146846#48146846 I guess Cargoh's PR people/person sends out pitches of the items available on their site to various media outlets and that is how my vases were chosen. It cost me nothing other than the postage to send the vases to NY. Does Etsy have anything along those lines? I know they don't advertise per se, but sending out pitches doesn't cost anything, though it would probably open another whole can of worms on the favoritism subject
