Do NOT Buy From Soapdeli

31 Mar

Remember all the anti-Etsy posts and all the super lovey Artfire schlep she delivered in the forums for months?! Well, boo hoo.. she is not getting the sales over there like her Etsy shop so she is thinking about leaving there.

What a indecisive trouble maker. Steer clear!


30 Mar

I’ve flagged this shop which is blatantly violating TOU by using their banner as an advertisement for their website with a 50% off coupon code, their shop announcement also directs customers to their website to buy using coupon codes.

The shop announcement contains the following information:

Coupons have to be used on my instant download site

“My online website has been doing great and Thanks so much from all The ETSY customers you guys are great, I am so happy and excited, keep in mind I will have nearly 10,000 files to choose from when I am done, hopefully I will start adding about 50-75 files a day, keep checking back for new coupon codes each week!” and my online store

Pretty ballsy to steal & then give permission for it..

here’s another one QBTots who advises the people who buy her stolen images that they can use them in a commercial way:

Terms of use: You may NOT share, sell or claim these digital images as your own. You may print these images and use them in any other personal and commercial way.

It’s disheartening. Some day someone is going to go vigilante on these people and start calling Disney et al.

“I’m glad you’re here!! I am amazed that this shop is constantly on the front page with her mistagged Items, I have flagged the items, but nothing happens.

She has several hats tagged (I copied and pasted)

“clothing, cape, corset, costume, dress, girl, handmade, hoodie, vintage”
“clothing, cape, costume, corset, dress, girl, handmade, hoodie, vintage, wedding gown”

Hats are not supposed to be tagged as clothing but as accessories first, not to mention the other ingenious ways she has tagged. The wedding gown sent me over the edge!!”

This shop mistags a lot. I have reported her a few times.

Search needle felted in her shop you get 20 items none are needle felted

Search crochet in her shop you get 17 items none are crochet

Search Knit in her shop you get 16 items non are knit

That is an example I did not go through each item to read all the tags.

“Look what I found in Bags and Purses ~ Soap!!

All of her tags are wonky. How can you tag soap as toy?


(etsycallout adds: She also calls an oreo a cupcake.)

Tagging conflicts..

24 Mar

Apparently Etsytreasuryteam’s advice on how to tag conflicts with Etsy’s rules as discussed here:

Here’s another seller who has taken the advice to heart about multiple word tagging:

I’ve flagged a few times, no changes.

Wacky Etsy Stuff #1

23 Mar

This sort of thing doesn’t fit in with mistagging or reselling but every once in awhile we have a guest poster that would like if we could break it up with some picks for weird and wacky stuff they find while they are searching around. Take it away Miss Guest!


1. CitrusTree Winker Photo- I love the big cracks in his forehead, like someone hated him as much as me but took a bat to him.
2. kateblack MoTowne Vibrator- I’m confused, the title says vibrator..but when you read the description it’s not and for decorative purposes? A wacky head hooked to an electrical device is decorative??
3. cobysbaba Tampax Notebook- This whole shabby thing looks like it needs to be shoved where the sun don’t shine.
4. Doodlemonkie Alien Brooch- Ever seen a dead fish that’s been at the bottom of the tank for a couple of days?
5. TBen Mini Cthulhu- with santa’s.. a true WTF if I’ve ever seen one.

Natural Inspiration..

Natural Inspiration on Etsy claims to hand make these:

But crazily, uses the photo’s direct off the website where she buys them in bulk:
