Why is an item missing from my favorites?

There are a few reasons an item might be missing:   

  • The seller removed the item from their shop. 
  • The seller closed their shop. 
  • Etsy removed the item or shop for breaking site policies.

Sold out items will still appear in your favorites and collections. If you want to purchase a sold out item, try contacting the seller to see if they have another similar item or can restock it. 

It may take some time for new updates to appear from shops you’ve favorited. If you’re using the Etsy app, pulling down from the top of the app will refresh your favorites.
