I bought a lightweight poncho from Etsy. I was impressed with how well-made it was, it had a zipper closure. And then I found the made in China label. It was coated in polyurethane and I decided it would be too hot to wear. I contacted the seller concerning a return. I never heard anything from the seller. First and last experience with Etsy.

Re: Have you ever ordered from Etsy?

I ordered from them for the first time two weeks ago. I ordered three masks from three different vendors. I received one in about a week, the other two I haven't received yet. I emailed them, they said they're sending them out this week. I did get my credit card bill today, the charges were on it! The jury is still out if I would order again.

I have ordered multiple times from Etsy and always have had a good experience. In fact, I am waiting for some headbands right now. My hair is growing like a weed because of social isolation. I work on zoom so I thought it would be fun to have a cute headband.

Re: Have you ever ordered from Etsy?

@Sue98   I've ordered from Etsy for over ten years.  I don't think I've ever had a bad experience.  Just like anywhere else, you need to read the reviews on the Seller you're buying from before purchasing. 

 

Make sure you know where your purchase is coming from.  It tells you on the page with the listing.  I have ordered a couple of things from Europe, but usually when I get the large list of everything I'm looking for I go to the left hand column and mark it to show items in the U.S. only.


Day after day the whole day through, wherever my road inclined, four feet said 'I'm coming with you!' and trotted along behind. Kipling
