  2. Etsy sucks and is from hell… They just shut my girlfriend down again after 6 months of intense work building the store up again after they shut her down a couple years ago after tons of work… I'm afraid she might have a heart attack or nervous breakdown now…. I told her to never have anything to do with Etsy again but she didn't listen to me
