Etsy Elephant...Or Is It?

I love etsy. This is no surprise to you all, my loyal readers. My favorite things to search for are elephants and jewelry.

While searching for elephants today, I came across this one. It's cute...but it's also not handmade. I know this because Junior bought me the same elephant at walmart for about $75. It comes painted, exactly like the picture here shows. The only thing this seller did was attach a ribbon to the back so she could call it a hair bow holder.

And she's selling it for $5, with $2.50 shipping.

I thought the whole point of etsy was that it was all handmade stuff?

Me too. I thought you could only sell "stuff" if it was vintage. Hmmmm...you should report this :(
