Etsy is discriminatory and predjudice

Hickory, North Carolina

Top shop for gifts.

Buyers bought gifts from this shop and gave them 5-star reviews!

Announcement    I can no longer sell on Etsy. It is no longer about handmade as it was back in the beginning. It's just another mini eBay now. All about the profits.

I recently had all my listings for brass shell casings and items made from brass shell casings cancelled as they stated that they were in violation of Etsy's policies.

Well when I checked there were thousands of listings with exactly the same components listed on Etsy yet I was singled out and had all my items cancelled. I could not get anyone from Etsy to tell me why I was singled out and hundreds of other sellers were left alone. I feel like if you do it to one seller then to be fair you have to take the money out of the pockets of all sellers with identical items. If I had deep enough pockets I would sue Etsy for discrimination but sadly I do not.

Hello.......My name is Jay and I live in a small community in western North Carolina up near the mountains. Any sort of woodworking for me is a work of pleasure. From my wooden buttons, all the way up through an entire bedroom suite or dining room suite. I love working with my hands which is why I probably enjoy fly tying as well. To be honest I got involved with Etsy because I was making too much stuff. The wife said I needed an outlet to sell my wares and suggested Etsy to me. Honestly I would love to sell some of the larger furniture pieces I've built over the years that are just collecting dust. But the logistics, packing, and shipping seem to me to just be a major headache. So the stuff I am making now can fit into a cardboard box and ship through the post office. I'm happy, she's happy, and it is my goal for everyone who buys from me on Etsy to be happy too. So please take a chance with me and my products. I don't believe you will be sorry. And if you are.........well, just see my return/refund policy. That should give you some comfort.

Returns and exchanges
100% customer satisfaction is not my goal, it is my promise to you. Selling my wares on Etsy is not my occupation, it is a hobby. Hobbies are supposed to be fun. Fun for you and fun for me. To that end, if you ever receive anything from me and are not totally satisfied, simply return it in the same condition in which you received it and I will issue a full refund less the shipping cost. However, if you purchase an item and opt not to insure it and it's damaged in the mail I cannot be held responsible for this item. I only accept returns of unused and undamaged items.

Insurance is CHEAP costing you just $1.00 for insurance for every $20.00 in value of product. So if you buy for example a set of cufflinks from me your cost to insure them would be only $1.00 So why not protect your investment?
Payment
For payment I accept cash, checks, money orders, and pay pal. Payment is required within 7 days of your purchase. If for some reason your payment will be late please have the curteousy to let me know. After 7 days I will relist the item on Etsy and will not allow you to purchase from me in the future. I charge NC Sales tax to NC residents.
Shipping
As most of my items are small, I use the USPS and generally First Class or Priority mail. If you need something more quickly you can, at your expense, upgrade to Express mail. Although I do not require insurance on orders. If however the post office loses your package or does not handle your package with care and the item is damaged in transit I cannot be held responsible. Insurance is CHEAP ($1.00 for insurance per $20 dollars of value) so why not protect your investment?

For my international buyers, know that I will not fudge (lie) on customs forms. Whatever is in the package will be noted on the customs form. I go to town three times a week. Monday, Wednesday, and Saturday. Those are the three days I ship each week. So if you buy something from me on Sunday and pay me on Sunday your item/s will ship on Monday.
