Electroplated earring holder. Anyone else up for some home electroplating?

From Monique’s own blog:

Welcome to the beginning of our busiest time of the year…… Earring-Go-Round makes the perfect gift! Arrives fully assembled, easy to use and affordable.

We are receiving over 2,000 Earring-Go-Rounds this month and expect to once again receive our award for “Best Holiday Gift Item”. ”

So she’s outsourced the entire manufacture of the item, has been in the top 25% of sellers on Amazon, sells 2000 units a month and is Handmade?

Elysian Organics copying again?

23 Dec

Wow, actually Elysian Organics is copying MY ( HerbivoreBotanicals ) listings.

Every time I come up with a new listing…there they are right on my trail…

Case in point…earlier this month I created this product and listing:

http://www.etsy.com/transaction/67110441

Today I logged on to find this:

http://www.etsy.com/listing/89111791/6-mens-organic-vegan-soap-samples-2-oz

For Christmas I posted these items:

http://www.etsy.com/transaction/66854138

http://www.etsy.com/transaction/66761609

http://www.etsy.com/transaction/63464358

and within a week or so Elysian posts these:

http://www.etsy.com/transaction/63844488

http://www.etsy.com/transaction/63788866

I believe Elysian Organics is not even organic and may be reselling soaps. I have no proof of either one but do know they are immature, aggressive and copy my listings relentlessly…

I will continue to post on here whenever they directly copy an item of mine, just so you can all be up to date! : )

Xiaolizi has been called out before on ECO a year ago

http://etsycallout.wordpress.com/2010/12/09/xiaolizi/

Xiaolizi is YanHuaTang on Dawanda site. http://en.dawanda.com/shop/yanhuatang

Which is Yanhua Tang on Taobao

Which sells this skirt http://item.taobao.com/item.htm?spm=110-B0N-213zD.3wvD-1nBHS.3-4OGP_O&id=7881227857&
translated page http://translate.googleusercontent.com/translate_c?spm=110-B0N-213zD.3wvI-1nBHZ.s-41sTOA&hl=en&ie=UTF8&prev=_t&rurl=translate.google.ca&sl=zh-CN&tl=en&twu=1&u=http://item.taobao.com/item.htm%3Fid%3D7881227857%26spm%3D110-B0N-213zD.3wvI-1nBHZ.s-41sTOA&usg=ALkJrhjFrXttF9AEF9NARD3dGcya5QmsGQ

of which 327 were sold (if my mandarin guesses are correct, it isn’t translating out well) in the past month at 198 yuan, about $32 USD

Their own website: http://yanhuatang.com/

Which looks an awful lot like this skirt on Etsy http://www.etsy.com/listing/47125638/black-linen-knee-long-skirt for $59 USD
