Total sense. I can see why they might think that way.

So, if they see it being worn (meaning modeled), they think it is now used (because it has been used for what it was intended for). They believe the bow they'll receive will be from the seller's stock. (I can understand what they mean. I'm sure they don't want to pay full price then receive a bow that has scant hairs on it or whatnot).

With the bow on the floor, they can see it isn't being "used". It's just getting dirty lying on the floor.

(geez, I hope that all made sense lol )

Oh, I love these. Man, I keep meaning, and forgetting, to try the inside of a book. Can you get scrapbook paper with tiny manuscript writing on it? That would be super convenient.

My daughter actually slept through the night and I have had a lot of coffee this morning so I'm feeling pretty "genius" compared to other mornings when I'm not so lucky.

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?
I think even if we were to point it out in the description people don't always read the whole description.

I do love the look that people were achieving, however it is still the customers we are trying to attract to our products, if they think it's been lying on a dirty floor they will move onto someone else. I will say it is hard to please everyone, so if you find something that is working great for your photos and you are selling your products, then go with it. But never be afraid to try something new, you may just find something that is perfect and grabs more peoples attention=more sales.

Lol, iteresting, but I can see how people could think it was a real floor. Good thing for me, I like to take all my pictures on a bright white back ground(or black if the bow/clippie is white)

I have to agree. I don't think the majority of etsy buyers read the full description.
