“DO NOT MAKE ANY PURCHASES WITHOUT CONTACTING ME FIRST!!!
Read directions carefully. I want this to be a fun new way to purchase on my etsy page!
I have decided to go about this in a new way.
If an item says $1.00 that means it is part of the sale.
This sale is called “Name your price”
So….contact me on etsy and tell me what you think the dress is worth.
If I agree, I will change the price and you purchase the item.
Offers will be considered based on 3 criteria:
1. Degree of dufficulty in creating it
2. How cute it is
3. If you want to purchase more than one item.”
Does this look like a resell to anyone?
Kind of breaks my heart, since I was an inch away from buying them…
The seller has mostly “charms” in their shop- I can (maybe kinda) understand sticking a mass-produced charm on a chain and calling it “handmade”, but it looks like the earrings in question are just a blatant resell. I hope I’m wrong on this one…
Love the “Thank you etsy for featuring these earrings in the Equestrian Chic Gift Guide!!!” *roll eyes*-ECO
*disclaimer* A note on the wholesaler’s website states:
Cut and pasted from their source:
But wait, you can buy shoes too!
I’m sure you can think of all the ways to wear these incredibly comfortable boots from TSUBO.
huby06 is selling assorted indian, thai & mexican silver jewelry (he’s calling it vintage and designer).
Take a look at his Profile: “i have been selling vintage and designer jewelry for several years now. i am currently expanding into the english speaking countries. my current webshops are available in german and french only.”

Another seller who buys sale crap at Target and Michaels and resells it on Etsy. Left For Others Feedback is a fun read, as well:
In the shoe listings she says she found them in her travels and had them shipped back home (so she can ‘share them’ — sheesh, I am tired of resellers sharing their stuff on Etsy), but her announcement says she’s taking orders.
As for the rest of the vintage shop, her announcement says her vintage items are ‘reworked’ but the listings make no mention of any alterations to the clothes. So who knows how old they are or if they are original.
A) They have been kicked off the site before – and just signed up under a different name.
B) This is a Chinese company: (http://www.sockdoll.net/) Yes, handmade, but sure as hell not by one person… they are all over the wholesale sites and offer special deals on 500 sock dolls or more.
What annoys me is that people can just come back under a different name, and even flagging them doesn’t seem to work. It took me months to get their first shop closed, and is probably taking me months to get their new shop closed again.
In the meantime, they are selling like crazy – which is no wonder with those prices. But who can compete with a Chinese sweat shop?
Wow, a shop full of $2 rings and other super cheap jewelry. Insane.
From the inbox:
I have flagged/reported this shop to Etsy for a few days now and haven’t seen anything done about it! The seller is selling mass produced products and claims to be handmade:
Here are a few links to some sellers over at TaoBao that are selling the same items:
There are at least two shops on Taobao that sell the very same brand items:
<a href="http://maomaobag.mall.taobao.com/ http://shop33047493.taobao.com/”>http://maomaobag.mall.taobao.com/
The first shop states themselves as the manufacturer of this line of items and their company name is 聊城市猫猫包袋有限公司, and here is a company profile page:
They currently have more than 40 employees and two offices at two different provinces in China. And this seller on Etsy is located in Canada. Reseller or not, this shop http://www.etsy.com/shop/SilviStore clearly violates Etsy Do’s and Don’ts rules!!
With more and more of these fraud sellers appearing on Etsy, I really would like to see something done to prove that Etsy cares for its image and does not encourage this type of fraud!
