A better version of Etsy without the resellers Answered
Etsy has made it pretty clear that they don't plan on closing down the high volume resellers that list cheap imports as "handmade." Helen Killer (April Winchell) of Regretsy wrote an excellent explanation of why this amounts to bait and switch on Etsy's account.
Most people go to the site thinking the majority of what they'll find is handmade. Real makers, crafters, and artists post their items at a reasonable price considering how long it took to make the items. Customers go to the site to find a specific item, search for it, and find a bunch of cheaper options listed with the handmade ones. The cheaper items are often listed as handmade, and customers don't often do the extensive research to find out 1. how long a handmade version would actually take 2. the cheaper options were made in a factory overseas. Considering that handmade was Etsy's big selling point, they have no reason to believe they're being duped by a reseller.
Etsy also prohibits "calling out" in their forums, and often ignore the private reports of resellers. Even if you have proof that the exact "handmade, unique" items in a seller's shop can be purchased for next to nothing elsewhere online (and in huge quantities), you're not allowed to mention it in Etsy's forums in order to warn others about what they're really buying.
So far, shopdelighted.com is very small and new, but I like the clean interface and their promise to never allow reselling except in the case of crafting supplies. I might be a naive idealist, but for now I believe that this site will actually keep their promise.
