I love handmade. Handmade furniture, handmade jewelry, handmade clothes and especially handmade signs. I also sell handmade. Handmade jewelry to be precise. But all too often handmade artists like myself are trampled by big company's and mass produced foreign items passed off as handmade. This is exactly what has happened and is continuing to happen in the land of E***.
Don't get me wrong, I sell on E***. I've been selling my jewelry there since 2010 and bows for several years before that. E*** was a great way for me to get my feet wet in the world of handcrafted artisans and help me get my name out there. E*** proclaimed all items were handmade, vintage or supplies for years on end, and then they sold out.
These days E*** is a machine run by corporate big wigs and shareholders. Search just about anything and you'll find fantastic handmade items being flanked by cheap knock-off imitation mass produced crap. While it's still an OK place for me to sell my items I want something more. Something more personal, like my jewelry. I want something unique that not only SCREAMS handmade but IS actually all handmade.

So a crazy thing happened to me this morning…. I was DENIED as a wholesale seller on a certain platform.
Like I do wholesale all the time. I actually really enjoy it. And honestly... I don't think I've ever really been denied, business wise... It's new to me and It really has me shook.
