I've always had really good experiences with working through Etsy. Customer service has been great. Stuff ships quickly. People do some great work, a lot of it custom.

I use Etsy frequently.

I've placed a number of orders from a number of stores and I've been very happy with all of them. I do buy using Paypal every time so that I have some ability to dispute if need be.

I've bought 3 items total from two different sellers, all dog tags. They were all exactly as orders with good communication from the sellers, good shipping speed from the time of shipping, and even good turnover time for them being custom orders. The use of the website itself is pretty simple and easy too, if you've ever used ebay I found it just as if not more simple to use.

Only time I ever did it took me months to get my item. Doesn't mean its like that for everyone though,that was just the individual seller.

I've bought quite a few items from Etsy and never had an issue. The only small "problem" I've had was where after about a week my item still hadn't shipped, and I ended up cancelling because I was buying it as a secret santa present and didn't have time to wait.... money was refunded quickly, no biggie.

I've really loved everything I've bought from there. Lots of high quality stuff. It's my go-to place when I'm looking for something a little "different."

I've bought oodles of stuff off of Etsy. One single time it took FOREVER to get my purchase, but otherwise my experiences have been uniformly good.

I've bought TONS of stuff and have only had good experiences.
If I feel a shop is questionable, I read the reviews.
I talk to him when I'm lonesome like; and I'm sure he understands. When he looks at me so attentively, and gently licks my hands; then he rubs his nose on my tailored clothes, but I never say naught thereat. For the good Lord knows I can buy more clothes, but never a friend like that. ~W. Dayton Wedgefarth
