Etsy, No Longer the Darling of Handmade?

When a blogger, normally dedicated to favorably spotlighting Etsy and its’ sellers, begins a post with –

Etsy’s reputation as the darling of handmade is starting to crumble…

it is pretty much a given that…. well…. Etsy’s reputation as the darling of handmade is starting to crumble (to again quote Brittany.)

Insightful post, The Degradation of Handmade: Etsy’s Fight With Itself,  from Brittany’s Best.

  1. This piece from Brittany’s Best is a great blog post. Comprehensive and insightful. And it’s very interesting that this is coming from a blogger who used to be completely favorable to Etsy. There were too many sharp barbs in this blog post of hers to count! Clearly, the wind is changing direction. Puts me in mind of an old Elton John song that says,
    “Holy Moses I have been deceived
    Now the wind has changed direction and I’ll have to leave
    Won’t you please excuse my frankness but it’s not my cup of tea
    Holy Moses I have been deceived.”
