An update…

17 Aug

Here is an update on shops that have been called out. One person owns all these shops under different names. They also changed the names after being called out here. Here is the update.

http://www.etsy.com/shop/FakeGaugeOrganics?ref=seller_info_count

this shop has been called our here a number of times. They tried to shake it by changing their name to fakeguageorganics

The same owner had this shop removed, he was selling junk from China. He now is coming back selling the same earrings.

http://www.etsy.com/shop/blingGo?ref=search_shop_redirect

He has made his photos to look like other peoples photos. Blinggo was removed for a short time for violations.

This shop now has come back. It was organicdreams before, same owner

http://www.etsy.com/shop/TribalOrganics?ref=search_shop_redirect

Now look at Thaisaket, the same people with a different story. Look at their early
feedbacks, this was an earring seller.

http://www.etsy.com/shop/thaisaket/sold?page=71

this shop has been a reseller from the first day. He got smarter, went after other clothing sites by copying their styles and photos, all of which he buys in the local market.

He is not running a 50% sale and shipping DHL. Does that sound like a reseller?

Here is another site run by these people.

http://www.etsy.com/shop/AnyonesFashion?ref=shop_sugg

Once again, goods you can buy on Ebay, websites, or just about anywhere. They are claiming they make these goods. They have 5 sites I am showing you, probably more, all with different names, ATM cards, that is how people expand. They are selling $365,000 a year or more, not to mention they screw up the market for honest people making stuff.
They should be gone yesterday.

Okay, I am not saying she didn’t make these, but isn’t it weird how these types of bracelets are available all over eBay and wholesale sites? Anyone else find this strange?

Here’s hers:
http://www.etsy.com/listing/100758686/rhinestone-shamballa-bracelet-pink

And, numerous sites where you can find the same ones:
http://www.artfire.com/ext/shop/product_view/anna0088/3865368/Hot_Sell_Shamballa_Disco_Magnetite_Ball_Beads_Macrame_Bracelet__Pink/Jewhttp://www.alibaba.com/product-gs/518333387/Hot_Sell_Shamballa_10MM_Disco_Magnetite.htmlelry/Handmade_Jewelry_Supplies/Beads
http://www.aliexpress.com/wholesale/wholesale-shamballa-bracelet-wholesale.html
http://www.overstockjeweler.com/shamballa-bracelets-c-332.html?gclid=CMDoiP6qpbACFVMetAod7SpHYg
http://www.ebay.com/itm/Shamballa-Bracelet-9-Pink-Crystal-Disco-Ball-Magnetite-/390419924116

And those links were gotten from a very quick google search.

Why do I think she is lying about making them? Well, the links I found when I searched for “Shamballa bracelet”. Then in her video about it (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Sxd9pYUW), she doesn’t know the term “macramé” when she describes the “little thingy” which provies closure and adjustment for the bracelet. Also, she’s selling 50 identical ones which if she were making them by hand doesn’t seem likely. Am I off-base here? I would hate to call someone out that didn’t deserve it, but this seems so fishy to me. I mean why not just sell them on eBay? Why pretend they are handmade? She has tons of followers so I’m sure they wouldn’t care.

Ring a ding ding, isn’t it funny how all of these shops seem to have the exact same rings and bangles and for such a great price? Regardless of how much work it would be if they actually were making them. And isn’t it funny that you can find these by the truckload at any gem show?

TheTeardropShop, StumblingOnSainthood

3 Apr

okay, someone explain this to me.

This shop sells a cute little umbrella necklace:
http://www.etsy.com/listing/88403867/umbrella-charm-necklace-with-wire

This other shop sells a cute little umbrella necklace:
http://www.etsy.com/listing/81144837/rainy-day-umbrella-charm-necklace-in

Two different shops, same exact photo. I get that they could be legal if they were buying the umbrella as a part and adding it to a chain (which other sellers appear to be doing)..but this is the SAME necklace, same wire wrapping detail, etc. Same photos.

Are the two shops the same person? Or just two different people reselling a premade necklace and using the stock photo of it?

As a buyer, I want a pic of WHAT *I* AM BUYING, not what was sold 100 pieces ago and renew sold all the time.
