If you cannot do something about a BLATANT re-seller here on etsy, how do you expect to have the trust of other authentic Etsy sellers and Etsy customers when it comes to the smaller re-sellers? We complain about the re-sellers each and every day and yet nothing is done about it.
I know someone is going to come along and "wrap this thread up" and that's just not fair. This isn't communism! This is ETSY. People are mad!
I don't understand how the Featured Seller shop is still up and running. If you go to allfromboats.com her "Furniture Showroom" address CLEARLY is pointed out on their website as a "Distributor".
This shop is NOT a "Collective" no matter how much this seller tries to say it is, and no matter how many lawyers she throws at Etsy.
Regretsy found the Bills of Lading from this shop on the internet - the Bills of Lading CLEARLY INDICATE that her company is importing FURNITURE. Not wood. But FURNITURE. The Bill of Lading goes on to point out WHAT TYPES of furniture.
If you aren't actually going to do anything about the "reseller problem" (as you, yourself, have said) here on etsy, then why are you leading us to believe that you are? Why lie to us? We are the ones who pay the fees every month!
This shop, along with other resellers, need to be closed down.
I shop on etsy - a lot. I may have to move my shopping someplace else. And you know who suffers? The staff at etsy, when more and more people will move their shopping (and shops) elsewhere, who will lose their jobs due to decreased revenue, and more sadly - the shopkeepers who are losing the business of customers like me who are fed up.
