This is what bugs me about Etsy...

Look at these glasses...I know the quality of the plastic, etc., and don't think they are worth 36.00.
vintage sunglasses

The same sunglasses sold on Ebay for 10.09.
Same glasses for less than a third of the price.

It's one thing for a dealer to get up early in the morning, make it to the flea market or estate sale and pick up bargains to resell. Sitting on your butt, buying off of Ebay to resell on Etsy is not only less lucrative, it drives up the prices for the consumers. I don't know if that is what this dealer did, but if they didn't do it, they should research their product before listing.

OK...rant over!

I don't much look on Etsy, so often people won't ship to the UK, mind you same on US Ebay, or I've been quoted $36 for posting a sewing pattern, crazy! I know that international postage isn't cheap but I also know what it costs!

Etsy sucks !

Just because it's "vintage" sellers thought they could put crazy prices. They could wait before Big Mama buy something !!!

Been doing this a long time and I'm sooooooooo fucking sick of the prices on vintage. Everybody's a dealer now and competition at auctions/estate sales are insane...I use to sale just when I wanted to clean out my closets and make some$$$ but fuck it I'm gonna start hoarding it now!

Mauhahahaha
