What prompted this post was seeing three posts in a row on my friends page by user foyerdesarts, trying to sell "victorian and rococo" jewelry (clearly they left out the word "inspired") on seeking_ophelia,victorianera, and victorianlife. According to the userinfo on these communities, NONE of them welcome people selling things.
So mods, please do something about this. To people selling: please post your crafts somewhere more appropriate. And at the very least, STOP CALLING YOUR WORK VICTORIAN here. Unless you've miraculously learned time-travel, in which case, clue us all in.
And just to show that I'm not a complete curmudgeon, I'd be more than happy to see adverts here for antique dealers who sell actual period jewelry.
Just one person's opinion. Thanks.
