Etsy states clearly what handmade means, but the site is full of items listed as handmade that are just drop shipped from huge sources. This is obvious when you compare what they are selling with what is available from other people on the net.
The same stuff. There does not appear to be any screening on Etsy's part as to seller's claims. False labeling abounds. For example, a number of sellers sell genuine hand-collected sea glass.
But Etsy has a number of sellers selling "sea glass" that is clearly fake - it is machine made.
I have complained about this (loss of revenue to genuine sellers) but Etsy does nothing. In the photo you can see the fake sea glass sells cheap and robs customers plus robs the sales from the genuine dealers.
