Couture Curtain Desgin
is a seller of handmade and hand-altered items on Etsy.
Problem is she lists her “significantly altered” items in the Vintage category. As a reward for ignoring the Dos and Don’ts, she was included in the Sunday blog feature Get The Look Decor on Nov. 13 with this item:
which used to be a brass lamp. Now a painted metal lamp. And it sold, thanks to Etsy promoting abuse of the vintage category!
She has only a small number of listings in her shop. But there are more misuses of Vintage included in that small number.
Like this item:
which uses a supposed vintage frame, repainted, to make a hanging chalkboard. This is not a ‘vintage frame’ as the misleading title states, but a new handmade item.
