Good Reading "The Skinny on Etsy"

"Our mission is to enable people to make a living making things, and to reconnect makers with buyers. Our vision is to build a new economy and present a better choice: Buy, Sell, and Live Handmade. ... Who is Etsy? Etsy was founded by Rob Kalin, Chris Maguire, Haim Schoppik and Jared Tarbell in June, 2005. We are a community and a company." -- From Etsy's web site.   OK Rob.  How about all the resellers of crap you can buy online from China etc. ??????????????????

Mifasooo...WTF? Those air fresheners aren't handmade, no matter where they came from. I'm sure Ditzy Soldier Sailor HeyMichelle checked them out, and they're fine. Uh huh.

Yeah maybe you can report them too.. I've been reporting that store since before HeyMichelle said she was taking this on. I accidently found it when I was searching for true handmade iphone covers. :(
