agree and those of us who take time to make things like I do in my OTHER shop can NOT compete pricewise with resellers...please get them off etsy..when I brag about etsy and promote it I always say with pride-vintage AND beautiful HANDMADE things

So true, and I witnessed the scenario you spell out in real life a few weeks ago:

My friend needed a travel bag for an upcoming trip, so I suggested she try Etsy. She found the perfect bag, at an awesome price, but then figured out it is made in a factory overseas (she's a smart lady). Needless to say, she did not buy the bag and is now pretty over the idea of Etsy.

How can I change her mind if resellers are indeed here to stay? :(

Great post, but as much as I love etsy - I feel it has long since compromised with resellers as well as customer service to both their buyers AND their sellers!
