UGH Etsy fucking sucks these days. I spent way too long looking at magnetic needle minders for embroidery, and found some really cute ones, just to realize that the shops they're from are pretty sus. Like, the warning signs serious pin makers have listed for spotting stolen designs are cropping up left and right, and I hate it. I don't want to convert anything from my pin collection because I can't think of a non-destructive way of doing so, and I know there must be people who make their own fucking designs out there, but they're getting drowned out by sketchy shops with tons of listings.
I just want the old Etsy that wasn't flooded with dropshippers and bootleggers back.
