Well, after nearly five years of selling with Etsy, all of my shops have been closed. No, not by me. I was finally having some success, was really pleased with my progress. No, my shops were closed by Etsy. They didn't even bother to email me about the closing of two of them. One was shut down for copyright violation. The other two, neither of which featured any copyrighted material (one featured entirely original art, the other entirely vintage goods) were shut down without a word from Etsy or any explanation.
I will be finding another way and place to sell. I'm just not sure where. Several of my designs are available via DeviantArt and Cafepress in the meantime, so I hope you'll check those out and tune in here, on Twitter and on Facebook for updates. Thank you all for your support!
