I Phone App excludes Vintage as a choice?

It appears that the Etsy I phone app ignores vintage sellers when it comes to 'customizing' your choices. I am Sure this must be a bug, or an error, as there is a 'channel' for supplies. Can you please fix this? Vintage sellers have a hard enough time being found already, the app needs to be equitable and fair to all who generate revenue for Etsy,
Thank you.

Hi RareBeauty,


This is not a bug. Though you are correct that there is not a dedicated vintage channel, vintage items are mixed into every other channel that's available, and can be seen along with their more recently handmade counterparts!

I'm going to move this one to Site Help in case other members have the same question. In the meantime, that's a very striking Haskell brooch in your shop!
Interesting. FYI, when I want to look at vintage, I only want to see vintage.
Sigh...hard to understand when vintage is such a popular category....
well thats just ducky
I am wondering if this ties in to the new search Etsy is putting in place :(

Wha?
oh, this is going to be popular on so many levels - vintage sellers that want to be found, & handmade sellers annoyed to have vintage mixed in to what they think should be handmade only searches.

Etsy has been signalling for months now that the lines between categories are on the way out. Anyone want to predict what the site outage brings? :)
If Vintage sellers are getting less as in a dedicated channel, should we get a discount? We seem to be less important .
