Did the seller say it was handmade? There are a lot of people that do re-sells on etsy. Not saying it’s good… but etsy doesn’t seem to care. You should follow regretsy. Lots of crazy items on there.. and they also do a post every once in a while showing resales.

@bananapancakes96:  Before writing a review, definitely send them a message and ask whats up! That is very strange. Did the veil say “handmade”, or was it just assumed because it’s Etsy?

It depends on how upset you are. Are you happy with the veil itself? Is it what you like? Perhaps you can message the seller and see what she says. Was the description itself misleading? Did she say that the veil was handmade or anything about the origin? Were you led to believe it was handmade as much of Etsy’s goods are? I think that some more information would give a better picture on whether or not you were misled, and whether or not to give negative feedback.

@bananapancakes96:  It’s really sad that you went through something like that. However, you must check whether or not the item was specified to be handmade. Furthermore, did you have any conversations with seller, prior to purchasing the veil? Were your conversations about whether or not the seller would create it for you? Or was it a unique, one of a kind item that was in stock? If indeed the seller did state that it was to be handmade, I would converse with him/her immediately and inquire as to how it was made, and the fact that you saw the same item at hobby lobby. I would only write a bad review if the seller cheated you and gave you a store bought veil when handmade was promised.

Etsy is supposed to be a handmade marketplace. Now-a-days it is infested by resellers. Everyone needs to research their sellers thoroughly before buying something that claims to be handmade, especially in the jewelery and clothing department.

The best you can do is write them a convo asking for a refund and why you are upset (If you want a refund/return, that is) and when it comes to feedback, that is a touchy subject.

If you leave a negative and mention you found it at hobby lobby, she can negative you back. Chances are a negative feedback will hurt you as a buyer more than it will hurt her, so take that route carefully.

@Woodstock:  +1

@bananapancakes96: Did the seller say that it was not handmade OP?? I HAVE seen other items on Etsy that are ‘brand name’ or not handmade. Is it good quality?? I too would be unsure as to what to leave as feedback. Just use your best judgement, darling.  Perhaps it’s just similar to the veil you seen in Hobby Lobby? Is that a possibility?? Either way, I hope that you’re happy with you’re purchase 🙂

I’ve seen tons of stuff on etsy that I could do myself or buy at hobby lobby or Michaels cheaper. Or in the booth-rented home decor specialty ‘handcrafted or vintage’ shops around town. hobby lobby has some dang cute stuff for home decor and so that doesn’t surprise me. I didn’t expect a veil to be one of the things turned over tho.
