As many people know, or at least hope they do, all of my work is made with my own to hands... and my sewing machine Tallulah. I cherish handmade things. I set up shop on Etsy because they claimed to value handmade things and wanted to provide a marketplace for artists to sell their wares. Recently though, on several occasions, it has come to light that resellers have flooded Etsy. The most recent incident coming about that a reseller (claiming the products where her own made by her and 4 carpenters) made it into the seller spotlight. Etsy's response as in any case of anyone reporting a reseller? Silence the person reporting it by banning them.
On May 10, Little Nightengale Designs will go on vacation mode for 24 hours as part of a protest. We're not sure what will come of this, I may well loose my shop. That's all the more reason though to look elsewhere to set up a store front again.
