Due to Etsy's policy changes for commercial supplies...

Due to Etsy's policy changes for commercial supplies we are listing all new memo pads and letter sets on our yahoo store. The reason is this:

" A commercial crafting supply is not a commercial item that, although it may be used in crafting, is ready to use as is (for example: mass-produced clothing, dollhouse furniture and clothing). "

These new rules came into effect in the last couple of days but only affect new listings. Stores with listings that include these newly prohibited items are given a grace period, till the end of the year, to remove the items. So, all of our older items will be removed by us on our etsy shop at the end of the year and all new items will be added to our yahoo store.

It is a bit of a bummer in that it will be a ton of work to move everything over! But, I like the idea of building up our store more. We will have to move over more than just letter sets and memo pads...pencils, wooden clips etc. At least we have a grace period!

Awww! Really Etsy?! I can't imagine the time and effort it is going to take you guys to move everything. I wish you luck!

It's a shame that Etsy is going to shut out items like this. They may not be items specifically intended for crafting, but they can be used that way. And a lot of people who buy these items are also interested in handmade and crafting items. It's kind of like with "vintage" -- which Etsy allows; there's not a direct connection to handmade or crafting items, but there's some overlap in the audience.

I am just really happy that we set up this shop last year....still it will take some time for people to find these products on this site. I think most sellers don't even know about the changes and it doesn't just affect sellers like us but jewelry sellers and well...many others!

awww... that's too bad. I hope it doesn't take too much of your time to transfer things over....

I wonder why they would do that?

Hey Grace-they did it (and other changes to commercial supplies like pendant makers not being able to sell commercially made chains as options) because other etsy people were complaining that they aren't supplies. I know many of my customers cut up things and make magnets, pins etc with them but it is etsy's decision. I'm guessing though that many sellers don't know about the changes!

That is truly a bummer :(
I'll be sure to bookmark your yahoo website for some of those awesome memo pads!
Wonder what the other memo pad and such sellers would do...
