And on her new website she finally admits she doesn't make the furniture and even shows pictures of the craftsmen that do make it.
Given this new turn of events, Etsy really needs to make a public apology to the members of their community. Why they kept covering for this Etsy shop will always be beyond me. It has to be the inability to admit a mistake. But now that the real truth has come out, Etsy needs to make that public apology and admit their mistake.
People have very long memories. But most people are very forgiving if the mistake is admitted and apologized for. Then everyone can move forward.
Always reminds me of the saying "those who forget the past are doomed to repeat it".
Etsy and CEO Chad - It really isn't that hard. Just make an Etsy blog post and apologize. You don't even have to name the store as everyone will already know.
I am off on vacation this week. Wishing everyone a great week of sales!
