What a Hoot!

Search Result Shows the Same 26 Designs on Page 1

I don’t understand how this can be under “handmade”. When I did a search for “coffee owl” with and without the handmade filter, 26 of the same design appears on the first page! Many are new stores from different countries. I was very disappointed because there is not enough diversity or originality, something Etsy used to be known for. How is this happening? They are clearly resellers.

  1. I experienced something similar just a few days ago. I was looking for an iphone cover and found a really cute, “handmade” wooden one, with carvings. I then saw the exact same one in several other shops. All from China. Extraordinary how all these handcrafters have identical ideas!
