Drop down menus should not need an extra click. They should automatically display all items.
Depending on what category you want sometimes you have to open View All. So unfair advantage of some shops over others. For example, if you want a beaded bracelet then the category is on view when you select the jewellery item. If it's glass you need then you have to View All. If you are a new shopper to Folksy then it's possible you would not know to do this. Also research shows the less clicks a potential buyer has to make the more likely they are to buy.
Yes! It is annoying because it means all my jewellery has to be under Beads just so it shows up on the menu. I don't think people will know to View All either.
