Etsy acquired Trunkt?

Near what is currently the bottom of this page:
pandodaily.com/2012/04/30/etsys-growing-pains-3300-etsy-sellers-ral...
there is a comment claiming to made by Adam Brown, Etsy's head PR man, that Etsy has acquired Trunkt.

Is this something that just happened recently? Should this matter to those of us that sell on Etsy?

Hey georgiaf,

I'm Adam Brown, the PR Manager at Etsy. You're right that we acquired Trunkt, a one-person operation, and we have more details coming up about that soon. As you can see, we've written about wholesale since 2007, as it has always been an area of interest to Etsy sellers. www.etsy.com/blog/en/tags/etsy-success-wholesaling/

I wanted to respond to you on this point, "Etsy is changing and bigger manufacturers are the future of their success." With Trunkt, we're making an investment in a really talented person who has a deep understanding of an area of business that impacts a number of our sellers. If and when we do pursue wholesale tools on Etsy, it will be in service of bringing new channels to existing Etsy sellers to meet their needs, not working with large manufacturers.



Wonder if that means my lifetime trunkt membership is history??
etsy wholesalers? What is that?
Trunkt was one person??
Ugh
Huh.
SHAZAM!
