  1. Ya, he should be committed O.K.
    Just spoke to a person about Etsy.
    The first thing they said was,”Oh, I’ve bought some junk on Etsy”, referring to jewelry….
    Way to go Silverman.
    QUEUE the New “American Hand Made Crafters” venue !

  2. One perceived problem remains: There is still no dedicated antique site. Etsy is great if you want to glue seashells together and sell them but I don’t see them emerging as the go-to site for antique collectible historic stuff. There is a void.

  3. Etsy STOLE money from me under the term “Shipping Labels”.
    I NEVER use their labels. I have Stamps.com
    Is an authority going to STOP THIS ?

  4. RETRACTION : Etsy din’t steal money (directly) from me.
    Turns out, when Etsy first added “Purchase Labels” to the layout,
    they craftily hid the option of using my own source for shipping.
    It gave me the impression the Only Place to get my labels was from them.
    So, I used them ’til I figured out the Secret. The hidden truth. The public scam.
    Too bad they resort to this kind of tactic to skim even more money from unwary artists.
    GO TO : “Orders and Shipping”, click on the order to be shipped, at the top left — click on the “New” tab next to the “more actions” tab. Click on “Mark Complete”. Select the shipping service, enter the tracking number in the window, edit the “note to buyer”…I always put the tracking number in there as well….hit save. Then down at the bottom right, hit “mark order complete”. DONE !
    Etsy should have made this routine the DEFAULT. But they decided to be sneaks and hide it in the background.
    So they only snookered me for a little while. Now, I save a TON of money NOT using their labels.

  5. Hahahaha! Does this explain why sellers of GENUINE vintage get harassed by the semi literate muppets in “marketplace integrity” (none of whom know anything about vintage)
    when some spineless snitch or a jealous competitor flags an item in their shop?

    Meantime there are stores fully stocked with fake vintage direct from Ali Express which are allowed to trade unchecked.

  6. Antique category, = No feedback, No returns 25 yrs old or >. it is understood items older than 25 years require servicing! Either Etsy or eBay needs to wake Up!
