Question for Vonlady-

22 Apr

Reader Comment from De:

Vonlady is this you as well? If so why does this item say just arrived? It sounds like it was purchased, not handmade.

    This is almost like shooting fish in a barrel.

    So Von Lady says she is Babes and Dolls Jewelry in a post below.

    So this would be her as well? https://www.alsoshop.com/shop.php?user_id=9&parent_id=1211

    Read where she states I discovered handmade jewelry for a fraction of the cost here in the US. The items in stock are either designed or handpicked by me.

    Google “babes and dolls” then look at the cached version of their old website babesanddollsjewelry.com. You will see this:

    “We are a family based company located in Easley, South Carolina. Our company was founded in the year 2003 selling plus size women’s clothing. After selling clothing for a number of years, we discovered our true passion, unique, handmade jewelry from throughout the world.”

    “In the past 3 years we have developed a rapidly growing import jewelry business. Some of the jewelry items we offer are handmade overseas, and others are handcrafted by local designers. We import from China, Mexico, Peru, Chile, India, Thailand, Italy, and of course, the USA. We are constantly on the lookout, during our travels, for new and exciting items.”

    Dee, I see that Vonlady/BabesandDolls is also on AlsoShop with a different I.D. # it seems:
    http://www.alsoshop.com/shop.php?user_id=9&parent_id=474
    Apparently handbags are Vonlady/BabesandDolls’ next enterprise…
    “IT IS A DESIGN THAT I DESIGNED MYSELF AND IMPORTED FROM CHINA. IT IS IN LIMITED PRODUCTION.”

    Oh boy.

    Has anyone linked to their Shop Handmade store yet?

    Just tossing it out there.

    Please fix the first link if you can. I want people to see where she says this item “just arrived”

    I think she may have taken it down or it ended, although I am still able to see it here:
    http://www.plunderhere.com/auction_details.php?auction_id=867077&option=item_watch

    I have a screencap of it, if Callin’Out wants it.

    Here’s a link to the rest of her “ybmimports” listings:

    That isn’t turquoise, either, it’s dyed howlite. When will people stop swindling others?????

  9. Me April 23, 2009 at 3:21 pm #

    Wow, this is just a disgrace! VonLady, go sell on Ebay and leave handmade sites alone. How truly disgusting!

    THE ONLY MISTAKE I HAVE MADE IS THAT I RESPONDED TO ANY OF THIS MADE UP TRASH FROM THE BEGINNING. MY ORGINIAL DESIGNS WERE USED BY THE CHINESE (AFTER I PUBLISHED THEM SEVERAL YEARS AGO) AND EVEN A COUPLE OF AMERICAN SELLERS COPIED THEM. YOU SEE WHEN I BEGAN THIS BUSINESS, IT DID NOT OCCUR TO ME THAT THIS WOULD HAPPEN. IF YOU LOOK HARD ENOUGH YOU WILL FIND ABOUT 7 OR 8 OF THE ITEMS I DESIGNED AND MADE ON VARIOUS SITES. MINE ARE THE ONLY ONES WITH 925 STERLING SILVER AND REAL FRESHWATER PEARLS. IT HAPPENS. I COULD NOT CHANGE IT, IT JUST HAPPENED. WHAT WAS I SUPPOSED TO DO? IF I HAVE WRITTEN SOMETHING THAT IS WRITTEN WRONG, THEN I WILL CORRECT IT. MY IDEAS AND MY DESIGNS WERE COPIED. MAYBE NONE OF YOUR JUNK WAS GOOD ENOUGH TO COPY. MAYBE YOU WERE NOT IN BUSINESS AT THE SAME TIME, MAYBE YOU WERE NOT ON THE SITES I WAS ON AT THE TIME. I AM NOT THE ONLY PERSON THAT IT HAS HAPPENED TO. IT HAS HAPPENED TO MANY OTHER PEOPLE. CAN YOU IDIOTS NOT GET IT THROUGH YOUR THICK SKULLS TO LEAVE ME ALONE! I HAVE A FRIEND IN CHINA THAT I BUY MY PEARLS DIRECTLY FROM. YUAN LI’S PARENTS OWN A PEARL FARM. NOW FOR THE LAST TIME LEAVE ME AND MY BUSINESS ALONE. THIS IS THE ONLY WAY THE CHINESE CONNECTION COMES INTO THE PICTURE. GET A LIFE YOU BLOOD SUCKERS AND LEAVE ME ALONE. NOW I AM MORE UPSET THAN EVER YOU HAVE ALL ASK FOR AN OUT AND OUT WAR! BY GOD ALL OF YOUR CRAP BETTER BE IN ORDER. I AM GATHERING UP AN ANTI-WITCH HUNTING ETSY ARMY TO COUNTER ACT YOUR LIES AND ASSUMPTIONS. I ASKED YOU NICELY TO LEAVE ME ALONE AND NOW I AM NOT BEING NICE! TOLD YOU TO LEAVE ME ALONE. GOOD LUCK TO EACH OF YOU WITCH HUNTING CREEPS. YOU ARE CERTAINLY GOING TO NEED IT. OH YOU HOLIER THAN THOU SO CALLED ARTISTS…..YOU ARE ONLY USING ME AND OTHERS TO SMOKE SCREEN YOUR JUNK FOR SALE AND TO HIDE YOUR LIES ON YOUR SITES. YOU ARE NO BETTER THAN THE TERRIORIST THAT PLAGUE THIS COUNTRY! THERE ARE WAY TOO MANY GOOD PEOPLE ON ETSY AND OTHER SITES THAT WILL NOT ALLOW YOU TO GET BY WITH YOUR HIDING BEHIND YOUR CUTE LITTLE SITE! HIDE AND ATTACK, HIDE AND ATTACK, KILL THE OTHER’S BUSSINESSES SO I CAN SELL MORE…..IS THAT NOT WHAT YOU ARE DOING???? AFTER ALL YOU SAID YOU WANTED PEOPLE OFF ETSY SO YOU CAN SELL MORE.

    “I AM GATHERING UP AN ANTI-WITCH HUNTING ETSY ARMY TO COUNTER ACT YOUR LIES AND ASSUMPTIONS.”

    Oh noes! The voices in her head are gathering together! Hell bent on destruction!

    RUN FOR YOUR LIVES! RUN FOR YOUR LIVES!

    ROFLMAO!

  13. Me April 24, 2009 at 6:38 am #

    HA Ha Ha….

  14. forum rubbernecker April 24, 2009 at 8:25 am #

    I didn’t understand most of that….bottom line, is she saying she makes her own jewelry? If the Chinese stole my designs, I um, wouldn’t be making those ones anymore, because of, um, you know, the obvious problems.

    Who pissed in her Wheaties?? http://www.etsy.com/forums_thread.php?thread_id=6128478

  16. Gern Blanston April 24, 2009 at 12:10 pm #

    Does really think the Chinese needed her designs to come up with beads on a string? I mean, these aren’t complicated.

    Jesus hates liars and scammers. Just sayin.

  17. LearnedTheHardWay April 26, 2009 at 5:07 pm #

    Holy. Crap.

  18. Dee April 29, 2009 at 8:14 pm #

    Even after all the references to imported jewelry, and I’m sure the shop has been reported, the shop remains open. /rant
