Posted by Jingjing Tong on

For a long time, in the clothing world where there are many neon shirts, feathers and brocades, I have only been fascinated by the classics and elegance of the qipao.   It interprets a kind of authentic Confucian culture, which is unassuming and revealing, but can give a panoramic view of the delicacy and charm of women.

What Happens After Etsy Suspended Your Account

Posted by Jingjing Tong on

No one seem to talk about much about what happens after Etsy suspended your shop. This is what I am going to share. After the appeal, Etsy sent out a template message and saying that they will not reinstate my account and they will not reveal the reason as to why as well.
