My Dear Customers,
With a sad heart, I write this to inform you that Etsy has shut down my Shop without prior notice. My issue started while reporting another wedding seller who was using 6 of my photo’s as her own. I asked the seller to remove my photo’s, or I would be reporting the offenses. This seller refused to remove them and I was forced to report the listings to Etsy, along with numerous other listings of items that the seller was selling that were not handmade ~ but for resell (not allowed on Etsy) . The seller retaliated and reported untruths regarding some of my listings in my Etsy Shop. I found this out when I received an email from Etsy that they removed my lists (177) and shutdown my shop. The listings were purchased and owned by me and won't be returned by Etsy.
Long story short, instead of Etsy doing the right thing and reinstating my listings and selling privileges ~ it appears rather than admitting fault that they made the final decision to not reopen my Etsy Shop. They did this by email and stating they have the right to close a shop on their own terms. I spent many hours conversing with different departments on Etsy (Integrity, Support, Legal) by email as there are NO telephone numbers available to speak with anyone. Very frustrating experience!
PLEASE REST ASSURED THAT ALL PENDING ORDERS WILL BE CREATED AND DELIVERED. PLEASE CONVO ME IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS.
I would like to thank each and every customer for your support of my artistry. I have had an amazing time serving you over the past 2 1/2 years ~ with a 100% feedback rating and 1,098 sales to date. Even though I feel I have been mistreated by Etsy I still believe that it is an amazing venue for talented artistisans...and there are many! I encourage you to enjoy this venue for the talented artisians, suppliers and vintage items available. I am moving on and hope to be able to set up my own website in the future.
In the meantime, you may view past items sold and contact me through my business Facebook page, my Blog and/or by private email:
