what do you do when some buys the same thing they sell online? say someone bought a tutu from me. they don't sell on etsy although a shop is set up, but the do sell tutus online. should I ask the person or let it go? I feel very weird about this. I mean if you make the same exact thing, why buy from me?? and they look similar in quality.

I have had the same thing happen to me on a number of occasions. I just let it go. It takes a lot more to start a business than just to copy one example. Your shop is totally unique to you. Consider it a compliment and move on :-)

Yes, however, go with your gut and just keep an eye on the shop! Similar things have happened to me...to good and bad ends. I have made friends with other like minded people and I have encountered copiers with zero creativity. I hope it is the former for you :-)

I bought a decal from someone on Etsy even though I sell decals. It was made differently though then I could do and I probably could of made something similiar but decided to buy it instead. I have no intention of trying to copy it. Just wanted it for my car :)
