No, it was several shops. The white rough wood floor against the fake wall is very, very popular on etsy.
The point of the story was that the people taking the pic aren't really putting their products on a dirty floor (that rough wood white one can give that impression). But the consumer doesn't know that.
They think it's actually a floor.
And, when you think about it, why would you want to buy something that's been on the floor? Especially because it's ribbon, light colored fabric, etc. and you're buying it to put in your kids' hair?
