Another interesting email that I received this morning that can be another discussion… When Etsy says “new & undiscovered” is that strictly the seller or shop?
I am new to etsy and responded to a forum about new sellers. MaryMary said it was for a storque article. I am not mad that I wasn’t included (frankly my pics blow) but the main pic and a featured “new seller” actually has another store, selling jewelry like her new one, except the new one is in Spanish and the items look more professional with item #’s also.

Original Forum Question:
Are you a new or undiscovered seller on Etsy? Post here if you or a shop you know of and love has either:
* Only been active on Etsy for less than or equal to 3 months.
* Has under 15 sales (no limit to time on site).
* Both of the above!
Please withhold from posting shops that do not meet the above criteria at this time. We’ll be using this thread for a few upcoming features and appreciate your taking the time to let us know who you are or nominate those you love!
Here is a link to the forum question (btw they haven’t wasted their time to close this one, even though the storque article is done):

Here is a link to the “new seller”‘s store:
Her other store, with 97 sales since Jan 2009:
This seems misleading to make people think they were buying from a “new” not a new store from an existing seller.
Misleading or not?
