Sweetest Batch of Resold Goods..

30 Jun

EtsyWTF sent me an email about the shop TheSweetestBatch who is claiming to be selling “unique wedding toppers”. They are all found at My Dream Wedding.

Just an example:
“best hand painted porcelain you have ever seen.”
http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=25771177 is found here
http://mydreamwedding.weddingstar.com/6082+Comical+Couple+with+the+Bride+%22Having+the+Upper+Hand%22_category:cake_toppers

Every other one of her cake toppers is on that website as well.

    Whoa! Did you see her mark-up? $56 USD on Etsy, $35 CDN on the wedding site.

    Nice theft of their pictures, too. ‘Subtle’ isn’t in this person’s vocabulary, is it?

    There are some people on this earth that deserve a personal email detailing their douche baggery. This is such a person. And they’ve been informed…. by me.

    A douche bag of the highest order.

    I also contacted the web site that actually produces these items – went to “contact us” and wrote them to inform them of this seller. Since Etsy obviously has no interest in getting rid of this reseller – then maybe the manufacturer will.

    Here’s a shop I just came across in Pounce:

    I’m confused as to how laminating magazine articles is considered “handmade” and “art”. Maybe I’m being too critical? What do ya’ll think?

    I noticed Sweetest has now recategorized everything as “supplies.” I can’t believe that makes it alright.

    VA, you’re not being too critical. Selling laminated ads with celebrities in them is just sad. I can’t imagine them selling.

    It’s gone now.

    They may have taken down the cake toppers from MyDreamWedding, but they are still selling these:

    only that one is gone – after the asshole wrote me back and said “Opps didn’t realize I was in violation”. You didn’t realize you were stealing photos and claiming to “hand make” items that you were actually buying from a manufacturer who mass produces? Seriously. Darwin would roll over…

    Changing the tags to Supplies doesn’t change the fact that she is stealing the photos.

    I hardly think they are supplies, either.

    Wasn’t there a featured seller who laminates things?

  13. elizabeth July 2, 2009 at 1:43 pm #

    Yes, there was a featured seller who laminated things, I was trying to find her but I think she’s gone now. I don’t see anything wrong with the mag pictures other than the obvious celebrity do you have the right to resell the photo thing, I have some pendants in my shop made from laminated pictures from vintage childrens books.
