Juicy Questions

It has been interesting to watch some of the shops and items Rusetsy has called out being pulled from Etsy. Coincidence? Or does Rusetsy have a reader from Brooklyn?

There is one shop Rusetsy called out that, disappointed to say, is still up and running….because…

wouldn’t want to miss out on that little fee, now would we?

I am almost certain Etsy is aware of the existence of this shop… because how else would a sold listing photo get deleted????

Why would Etsy go so far as to delete a sold listing photo??

Maybe the missing sold listing was the same as the missing active listing…. a Juicy Couture sweatshirt?  If so, why would Etsy want to sweep it under the rug that it profited from the sale of a Juicy Couture sweatshirt?  Etsy doesn’t normally delete sold listings.

Is it because Authentic Brands Group, the owner (recent buyer) of Juicy Couture, tolerates no copyright infringers?

Or. Is Etsy trying to protect the Juicy Couture brand, and if so, why

This one has Rusetsy stumped.

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.
