I’ve just seen something sold on the Front Page that looked way too cheap to be genuinely handmade, and when I checked the shop it’s quite obvious it’s not. The exact same items are for sale on ebay, with the same photo, at the same price, and are probably imported from China.
I feel vaguely sorry for the buyer, who probably thinks they are getting a handmade item, but not too sorry as they didn’t pay anything like a handmade price for it, so I guess they are getting what they deserve.
I feel angry and disappointed that re-sellers are opening shops and getting sales on here, when so many genuine makers are not, and that Folksy is being devalued by them. I’m also disappointed that Folksy is attracting the type of buyer that would buy something so cheap without questioning why.
