Etsy Has Fleas

Etsy needs to add a new category: Used. Because no matter how twisted or contorted the definition of handmade (vintage or supplies), the term does not apply to the hundreds of items being listed by many new shops opening on Etsy – the Etsy fleas – those who use Etsy as a flea market to sell whatever they pull out of their closet. Etsy. Get a flea collar.

  1. So glad I bailed out of Etsy and this is the reason. I don’t want my items that took me hours to create to be seen with garage sale items or cheap manufactured junk. Association with such devalues my work.
