Is anyone else setting up an open source registry at all? We’re using alternativegiftregistry.org to register for things sold more by independent people than by big stores (we also have registries at BB&B and Williams-Sonoma). If anyone else is doing this, are there any sellers you’re particularly fond of with nice home goods etc? For example, rustdesigns.com or etsy sellers… I’d love to hear from other people!!

I love this idea and hadn’t heard of it before. Thanks for sharing it!

This is a great idea, and I’m probably going to go down this line too. I’ve also seen wishpot.com used a lot for alternative registries. We might register for our china through this (we’re going with Heath ceramics), as well as some local potters, etc. I like the idea that I won’t be limiting the look of my home by which store I register with. Good luck!

@emrw: wow, what a cool concept, it’s like etsy but for a registry!
we’ve set up a wish fund at upon our star which equates to ‘wishes’ that we get as cash after the wedding. we’ve been living together for ages now so we don’t need ‘stuff’ so for us, it was the perfect fit. i know some people have an issue with asking for money, but in my group of frineds it’s been quite common – i’ve given cash as a gift at other weddings, so i felt ok asking for it.
