Be careful if you're buying something off Etsy. In recent years people have started buying cheap Chinese stuff from sites like alibaba.com and re-selling it on Etsy as if it's locally made by them.

Here's an example:
Etsy listing [www.etsy.com]
alibaba listing of same thing [www.alibaba.com] (country of origin Belarus)

Crazy stuff! As a consumer you need to be really onto it!

Someone I know has a very cute online clothing store. She makes things look beautiful and trendy however, her stuff comes from those type of sites - its very common.

Fidget spinners were another example. They were in high demand and selling everywhere however if you bought lets say 10 at a time, you could get them for something like 2-3 dollars a piece. Toy world had them selling for $15 at the time.

Kids at schools were making money doing this. Same thing with the Japanese foam kawaii squishy toys.

Be clever
Shop wisely
