    When I first heard about Etsy I was so excited. I found a TON of cute stuff, and ordered some things. Well I just got them all in the mail this week, and I'm seriously dissapointed.

    I do not feel like the things I purchased look as nice, or are as well constructed as the seller made them out to be.

    I bought this thinking it would be a really cute wedding purse.
    This one said it was very rigid, and fully interfaced. It's not anywhere near ridid. It's a double layer of fabric with a snap. And the fabric is so thin that the white appears gray because you can see the black fabric that lines the purse. It's weird. And what's the most wierd is that the flap that is sewen together to make the pocket of the purse is only 3-4 inches tall. The pocket isn't as tall as the purse itself. Making the actual storage space super small, and things will totally fall out.

    Then I bought these make up bags - one for MOH other for me. In the picture they look nice and square... in real life the top is totally uneven.

    And I got 4 of these for the girls - my idea was that key cards, money and chapstick always get lost in your beach bag, and these would make a cute place to keep it all together. Not only are they not the size in the description (3.5 x 4.5 which would fit CCs with room to spare) but the lining is significantly smaller than the outside fabric, making the pouch even smaller than it was to begin with.

      hmm... that's a bummer.. i love etsy..

      can you express your concerns to the sellers? your concerns sound pretty valid. maybe they would give you your money back?

        What's their return policy? That sucks. I've only ordered a few things and loved them. Hopefully they will work with you. :)

          One seller does not do returns unless something is not as listed - which is the little pouches, so I'm going to measure them tonight, and send her the pictures. I do like them in general, they are just too small.

          Another seller does not have a return policy listed, so I emailed them to see.

          And the other, the clutch, says it can be returned, so I emailed her to see where I send it to.

          I'm totally bummed. I was so excited to get all three of these purchases. The little pouches are my favorite, so I hope I can get those resolved and the others returned.

            Sorry! I definitely think you should speak to the sellers, they should be able to work something out for you even if it is remaking them.

                Well for what it's worth- I love the little pouches too. I think they will be perfect for chapsticks and room keys. Your right- mine was always hard to find in the bottom of my bag.

                  That totally sucks! Didnt you have a poll on which bag to order at one point? (it looks like something I voted on)

                  I dont know whats up these days-2 things I got on ebay ended up being totally not as described. I went thru hell to return the crap but got the money back-luckily. Good luck :)

                    Do they have a feedback section? I always check that out (just like e-bay). I'm having my crib bedding made from a vendor on Etsy and I had wedding jewelry (that I loved!) made for my bridesmaids....

                    sorry you've had such bad results

                      i actually did check the feedback.. all were positive...

                      I know so many have had really great Etsy purchases. Mine might just be a random set of 3 bad items, and bad luck.
