I don’t know if Viva Terra has any actual stores, but I love them so much that I figured I’d add it anyway =)  I really hope people buy from there though, I like the few things there more than anything else!

 I’ve heard of a lot of people having the problems you mentioned with Target, Jaime, but I’ve also known a lot of people that got through fine.  The convenience finally convinced me. 

I didn’t do BB&B because their quality seems to vary a lot among their products, and I didn’t want to have to do any of my registries in person =P

Bloomingdales! Awesome service and selection!

I refused to go to Macy’s so Bloomingdales was a nice alternative.

i tried to register at Macy’s but hated the website and have heard horror stories about their poor customer service…

and then i found out that bed bath and beyond also has a great selection of fine china, which is what i wanted to register for at macy’s anyway.

so we’re probably registering at BB&B and Pottery Barn.

I’d really love to register at Cost Plus — but it doesn’t look like they have a registry.

I have to agree that the customer service for the Target registry is really bad. I was at a shower last year and the bride got some duplicate items from her registry at Target because they did not update her list. The gift givers were a little embarrassed and their return policy is very stingy.

We are using alternativegiftregistry.org for most of our stuff since we are trying to support local shops and artists as much as possible. We also registered at BBB for some stuff b/c 1) its easy for people and 2) we want to update our mismatched stuff.

Target=bad!  Not only do people have problems with duplicate items, but they also only allow so many returns AND I have heard that you must exchange the item for another item in the same department.  You are also only allowed so many returns, they keep track of that with your driver’s license number.  I love Target, but I will not be registering there.

We are registered at:

Crate and Barrel-"fine" china and everyday dinnerware and other misc.

Fortunoff-crystal glasses, vases, etc.

BB&B-random cookware and kitchenware

Pottery Barn-bath stuff

I like random things from everywhere…I couldn’t just pick one place.

I figure if we don’t get it for gifts I still get the completion discount.

So far the customer service at all have been wonderful.

Well, being in Canada and not lucky enough to have BBB, Macy’s, Bloomingdale’s, C&B, Sephora (I know totally not related to registering, but still not lucky enough to have one)…. oh I could go on forever about our lack of options, and its not like I live in small town canada, I live in Vancouver!  Anyways, back to the topic at hand we are registering at the Bay (read Canada’s version of Macy’s) and probably a furniture store… we know no one is going to buy us a new desparately needed couch to cuddle on, but are hoping for gift certificates to go towards a large ticket item. 

Has anyone else done this?  I am a little weary that its takcy registering for gift cards, but I suppose its not all that different than a honeymoon registry.
