Another ‘Etsy calls this vintage, even though it’s not’ Sunday on the FP and the Dorque.
I didn’t think you could grab something a few years old at a yard sale or thrift shop, sell it with something else unrelated that may or may not be 20+ years old (can’t tell from the photos), and list the marriage as ‘vintage’? There’s no assemby of the items, it’s just collected unrelated stuff.
But then the Etsy staff doesn’t know any better. The staff continues to ignore so many items that are handmade and look kinda cool, or are really vintage, to promote copyrighted items and yard sale castoff stuff.
Oh, and the few people I know who have been into the real equestrian thing would gag at Etsy’s idea of ‘equestrian style’. I think Etsy is confusing costumes for comedy rodeo acts, or what people who just collect items related to a specific animal (the horse, in this case) buy, with ‘equestrian’. Doesn’t matter so much now. Read an article on MSN about fall fashion trends last week, and it said the equestrian thing is ovah.
