Am I the only one that doesn't like etsy?
I love the idea, I love the fee structure, I love seeing kooky handmade items that I've never seen before, I even love the little "heart" thing.
What I cannot get over is searching. It is useless! I stop by every once in a while to try to unearth a fun treasure and I get sick of it almost immediately. Sure the little square pictures are cute, but the titles are all cut off and people seem to use the 3 most useless words for the first words of their their titles. The whole "tags" things makes sense in theory, but many sellers use tags that seem to have nothing to do with the item.
I know many see it as the future of selling vintage clothing, if it annoys me this much as a buyer, I can't deal with it as a seller.
As much as ebay has wrong with it, it is soooo much easier to shop for something specific.
Am I missing something? Please educate me!
