    No, you've already created a registry. People will figure it out. : (9 votes)

    As a frequent shopper of Amazon and the other retailers that they sell from/use, I know enough to research and figure it out myself. I can’t imagine people not looking into the sellers themselves and figuring the process out. But, that’s me and maybe I’m being “snobby.” I wouldn’t include any note.

    Amazon is one of our three registries, and I put notes on a few items- “Also available at crate & barrel, amazon is usually less,” etc. Gives guests the option to purchase in person vs. online, if they prefer. Since Amazon gives the “buying this gift elsewhere” option, I don’t think it hurts to add notes. Our mini food processor isn’t available at amazon currently, but two other web sites offer it, which I listed in the notes.

    Amazon’s quantities change all the time, unless an item is and has been out of stock for a while, I wouldn’t worry about it.

    This is one of the main reasons FI and I decided against an Amazon registry.  I shop online all the time, so I would figure it out.  But I don’t think most people will…  But I also don’t think a note will help anything because a lot of people still aren’t totally comfortable with shopping online, and will be even less comfortable shopping through a third party that isn’t as well-known and trusted as Amazon.  Frown

    Sorry, I know that’s not super helpful.  Just giving feedback!  Is there a way you can register elsewhere for the china you want?

    I’m of the opinion that you should never assume anything about common sense. 😉  So, I’m pro note on the registry (ie: if the item you wish to purchase in unavailable via Amazon direct, storex is a reputable source).
