Can anyone find a more recent “vintage” item that actually admits to its age?

    Ha. Buy a t-shirt from Etsy. You have got to be kidding.

    This is a seller who is confused about ‘vintage’ and ‘collectible’. Because they didn’t bother to read the rules, or just don’t care.

    or they are stooooopid.

    Could be, BeenThere. But most other sites that have vintage shops allow collectibles that are only a few years old. It is mostly the crafty sites with a minority vintage presence that don’t. I am not saying that Etsy should allow new collectibles, though. The Etsy staff hasn’t even figured out what 20+ years old AND not altered means. A marketplace standard for ‘collectible’ in a variety of categories would be beyond their grasp.

    This says it’s vintage from the 1700s but it was designed in 2011?

    The above mentioned Isle of Vue “postage stamp” of the 1700’s must be a typo, 1990’s is more realistic. It should say vintage looking; it’s strictly art, not a postal stamp, but postal art.

    Whether or not it is postal art or art, it was not made by the seller and cannot be listed for sale on Etsy. This is the same problem as the callout for the tee shirts — the seller is listing new collectibles as vintage.

    reseller much?

    This really makes an intelligent person EAGER to buy:


    ★ If you do not receive my work or my work is broken during the long shipping time, please tell me before you give me the feedback. We can discuss the best possible solution.”

    in other words, this happens all the time.

    did they ever return? No, they never returned, so….whatever the rest of the song goes.

    BlackBaroque has 22 negative for doing nothing about damaged and lost items, and for incredible rudeness. Just check out this convo:
