Popogirl says

I saw some things on etsy that are definitely mass 'handmade' produced in China (I have seen them at dog shows many times).
Are they allowed here?

Just wondering!

Oops right if it's not a supply that is.

It's not a supply. It's a ceramic item.
I did flag it. Just wondered what you all thought.

you know what we all think -- if its against etsy rules it shouldnt be allowed here

if you've flagged it there is no need to bring it to the forums

UH...YEAH there is! Don't be snotty!
I was just trying to be conversational and see what others opinions were.
No need to smack me.

I know what you mean Popogirl.
I was searching drawings just now and saw what are obviously mass produced paintings, I stopped searching after the first 4 pages as that was all there was!

I have personal experience of this from ebay, this all but killed original art selling on ebay.
I hope etsy dont allow it here.

I see a bunch of 2008 Olympic stuff in vintage. Did I fall asleep for 20 years?
