Holy Shop Closing!!

Today I had just a little touch of good luck and can buy a small amount of seedbeads. I have been marking favorites in Etsy suppliers because one thing I had decided awhile ago was any time I could buy my supplies from an Etsy shop I would. So I decided to go through my lists of favorites tonight. I had a good amount of shops marked. Going down my list I found several on vacation but imagine my surprise when I got 10 shops that no longer have an open shop on Etsy. What a shock. I know that sales have been down. I know there has been alot of negative stuff going on in the forums but this makes me feel bad. I don't know why, I just feel bad that these shops are gone!


  1. Wow, really? I know at least one Etsy friend who had to close temporarily, but it was due to things going on in her life that made the upkeep of her shop too hard...but she plans on being back in the Fall. I have another friend who said she just needed a break and might close hers...kinda sad.

    I make it a point to get supplies from Etsy sellers. I like to share the love and I get some unique supplies...better than I can find locally.

  2. Wow! I always feel bad when I see a going out of business sale...I'm hoping the economy will get better and maybe they'll open again.

  3. That is to bad. I saw that some people were taking off baby stuff,and thinking about closing. Wonder how much that the consumer act did to close them, or if it was just the economy?? Taking peoples dreams not a good thing no matter what the reason.
