Wow! Same table, same photos but one is a faux finished table and one is Imported from France.
I suspect both interior designers buy from the same supplier.
This entire shop is full of tag stuffing. Almost ever item has “hello kitty” in their tags. Drove me crazy when I was actually looking for a hello kitty headband and every one of her hair clips shows up in the search!!!
Clearly reselling and the images have the actual branding of the company that they purchased from!!!

A reader wanted to know why these shops were duplicates:
TheRosySnail has items with a watermark on them from the other store? They are also both from Temple, TX. Why duplicate a shop?
I have a great one for items listed as vintage that are all clearly upcycled (she describes what she has done in her description to upcycle them) Even worse one of her listings is on the FP right now. I don’t believe this is a mistake with not knowing the rules because she has other listings that are in the handmade categories that are also upcycled vintage. She’s playing the odds here to get the best views.
BrisNanaJoy – A joke of a vintage seller.
This item from Nicholsan1: http://www.etsy.com/listing/81709246 straight up copy and paste stolen from this shop: http://www.etsy.com/listing/62752976
Most of the other items in Nicholsan1′s shop look dodgy too. The jewelry is all listed under handmade, but I have my doubts that it is.
I’m willing to bet that this one: http://www.etsy.com/listing/45933387 is stolen from somewhere too since it actually has a real description but none of the other listings do (except for the other stolen one).
