Not as Advertised

I ordered an ethnic outfit from the country of my heritage on Etsy. Advertised as "homespun cloth", handmade etc. It took over a month to "make" and another month and a bit to arrive. And it's a cheap polyester- machine sewn- looks nothing like the photo mess! I doubt that I can return it, but am hoping because it isn't as advertised AT ALL that PayPal will issue a refund. Buyer beware I suppose. Guess I will have to learn to spin cloth and sew myself for a real authentic product.

I’ve heard this same story over and over so that’s why I won’t order any clothes online unless it’s from a well-known retailer. Sorry that you had to find out the hard way; it must have been so disappointing.

You can travel there and buy in person in the future. I don't know about Etsy but some places allow you to request a refund if what you received isn't as advertised. Also in the future you can ask for real photos or a sample from the seller before ordering if it's an expensive item. Online shopping is hit or miss. I've found great deals and bad ones. Don't forget to leave reviews for future buyers!
