this seller is really pushing it with these mass produced knock off sunglasses that you can get at
Forever 21 for ten bucks. She lists them and moves it to the ‘back’ of her shop so it doesn’t draw any attention.
I’ve already flagged this and Etsy just doesn’t care it seems. She needs to be called out!
can be purchased here as well and claims they are “NEW IN PACKAGE”
This seller was called out back in March. Here: http://etsycallout.wordpress.com/2010/03/03/etsy-3-artfire-1/#comments
Well guess who’s back? Just dropped by Etsy and who should I see but TwigGarden? http://www.etsy.com/shop/TwigGarden
Exactly the same jewelry seen in these shops: Wicopy, Beadwitches, Elvendale, Glenamara, Greengages, etc.
Guess this seller will just sell until she gets her first negative feedback, then go “on vacation” and pop up in another shop in a few months.
And really? She just opened up yesterday and already has 13 sales? Something ain’t right there, if you ask me.
While this seller DOES have some nice, unique items, it seems a lot of her things are blatant copyright infringements.
This section calls itself out….True Blood and Twilight
The images are just simply stolen, not even creative.
This section seems to be the worst:
All of the images used in her buttons are stolen from commercial websites. Most seem to be rip-offs of Tshirt images from Spencers, Hot Topic, Tshirt Hell, Snorgtees, and other known places with funny Tees.
Then of course there’s Disney, Dora, Hello Kitty….
And I’m SURE that all of these have been approved by the CPSIA, too…
