he's from ebay, isn't he?
Chad's post says nothing new and just chides all us 'unruly children' for making so much noise. But they have reiterated again that having items produced overseas, purchased by an importer in the US, and then resold through Etsy is PERFECTLY within Etsy's terms.

It is crystal clear.

Unless YOU or I do it, then it's a violation of the TOU and our shop will be shut down with no appeals process...

Dear ETSY,

With your *stated mission* you could have been the WPA for current generations.

You could have been THE site for SAHM, the disabled and under employed to have a way to make ends meet.

You could have been a contender.

Instead, you are JUST another venue.
So I guess Chad's words are in lieu of anyone answering questions in this thread.

Trudy! OMG! I remember that poem from maybe 7th grade... wow...

yes indeed.

Could have been THE destination site for actual handmade (straight from the maker), vintage and supplies...
