I think Etsy really, really needs to crack down on newly made items listed in the vintage section.
1. People (sellers) have been complaining about this for at least two years. To my knowledge nothing has been done.
2. New items pollute the marketplace and are a major turn off to buyers. I'm also a shopper on Etsy and I stopped searching for shoes in my size because I'm tried of seeing items from Forever 21 and Target.
3. Vintage listings get lost in a sea of new items that shouldn't be there in the first place. It's hard enough to get your item noticed - they shouldn't have to compete with listings that violate Etsy's policy.
If you agree with me, please comment.
Etsy - show us that you value your vintage community and get rid of these new items.
