How easy were these items to find? I typed the number 2004 into Etsy Search for ‘All Items” and there they were! Easy for me, but apprently beyond the expertise of the Etsy staff?
Found this shop with my 2004 search, but they have more than one violation here for selling newish items as ‘vintage’.
Another shop that is a mixture of old and new items, some listed in handmade categories. Also found in my 2004 search.
And again, found by searching for 2004, this shop also has a bunch of listings for newish collectibles less than 20 years old.
http://www.etsy.com/shop/OneStopBeadingShop This shop has a bunch of Hallmark products listed as Supplies, all too new for viintage. Found with my 2004 search. Ornaments and photo frames from Hallmark are not supplies.
Shop for art not created by the seller, most (15 out of 18 listings) too new for vintage, listed as Handmade Art.
These shops were easy to find. Granted I had to look through 14 pages of items, but mostly that was just paging past a lot of listings for crafting patterns and artists selling their own work from 2004. Come on, Etsy, you don’t need us to find these things.
