Annoying Mistagging- Apron/Dress

29 Apr

untitled-13
Unless you are a VERY free spirited woman, no one will wear an apron as a dress.
These shops (just a sample, there are way to many of them) beg to differ..boo to you!

*TheRedDolly Pink retro polka dot apron
*LulaDahl Poppy Dot Half Apron (it’s cute but not a dress honey)
*tinderdesigns The HOLLYWOOD HOSTESS Apron – Designer Fabric Romantic Vine
*amyquarry Pink Domestic Diva Full Apron
*FrenziedArtists Brenda Apron

Question for Vonlady-

22 Apr

Reader Comment from De:

Vonlady is this you as well? If so why does this item say just arrived? It sounds like it was purchased, not handmade.

and the user name is ybmimports? same picture and the description is almost identical.

same item on etsy this one says handmade http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=8569014

Worst Feedback Record on Etsy?

22 Apr

I’ve always wondered how bad someone’s feedback would need to be before Etsy closed up someone’s shop or account.

These examples show it might be alot. Who has the worst feedback record on Etsy?

*The Buyer BeadworkPaula has 156 negatives!!! Really Etsy?!?
*The Seller gemmafactrix has 21 negatives and 56 neutrals.
