Etsy is a “venue” for selling so every one of them is a different person or company. It’s impossible to tell you if they are all authentic or not. Etsy does have a problem with many resellers (especially in China) that are not selling authentic handmade items. However, there are many lovely honest sellers on there who have beautiful products. Pricing is all over the place, but it can be lower because they are selling online and do not have the overhead associated with a storefront. And pricing can be high because they are not mass producing something and the material cost and labor are higher. It really varies per seller and product.

If you give the seller name, I can take a look at it for you an offer an opinion.

The best thing you can do is to read the descripton, reviews, and shop policies REALLY REALLY thoroughly. Convo the shop owner to ask questions about the items. If there’s something that doesn’t sit right with you, then move on. Etsy is supposed to be handmade artisan goods, so I would be careful of anything that looks/sounds like it’s more of a mass produced item from overseas. Etsy is actually cracking down on those vendors.
