Handmade or Resold?

Show Thread Summary

I found a shop today selling coconut beaded watches from the far east as handmade. There is a shop in Norwich that has thousands of them, and I bought one, they break easily. The point is they made be handmade in a factory but not handmade as we know it.

The OP must have left the room, since it's been awhile since she posted? Therefore I think I'll pass on my comment.
Aw, OP, many newbies come into the forum asking this question.

Since we can't see what you see, there is no answer for you.
Posting links isn't allowed either.
The only thing to do is flag the shop and let etsy decide.

Since Etsy allows the purchase of ready made components for the seller to put together in any way they choose, then it isn't hard to make a thousand or so of these if you have help and not rocket science to teach others to do it for or with you. These would probably look very much like reseller items, but are Etsy legal. Not HGW legal, but hey I'm just another seller who has no say in how Etsy sets their rules regarding what can be sold on their site.
