this shop Shmena

http://www.thegreengiftbox.com

Sells candles, jewelery, seed kits etc. These products are all over the net from a wholesale distributor.
They are not handmade, the seller has copied the pictures, and also used the descriptions, from another site .

There are also links to their website in the shop announcement and product descriptions

UPDATE:
Received this in my inbox-
Regarding the Reseller I wrote about yesterday, http://www.etsy.com/shop.php?user_id=7107242

Now they are incuded in the gift guides! Look, most of the stuff might be okay if listed under Supplies. But it is being listed in handmade categories, and is clearly not handmade. Can you please do something to correct this?

They even state the manufacturer in the listings.
This is in the gift guides

Look at the tags, paper goods, stationery, set, recycled paper, eco, pencil, commercial

THIS IS NOT HANDMADE.
PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE do something about this!

reader comment-
check this shop out…seems a little over kill the emphasis on “handmade…one of a kind” yet no where does the seller say they hand made them.

also, love how it say male in the profile but the name of the shop is sarahworkshop.
I’m not buying it…but who knows I could be wrong.
yeah they could be handmade but I doubt by the seller.

same as the first…bag lady is back.

http://www.etsy.com/shop.php?user_id=7528423

I think she was trying to hide from us by calling herself “villagelace” this time and not having the word “bag” in her name. Nah, we always find you.

Would somebody convo her with some chinese translation to quit opening shops?!

A huge WTF..

funny rant of the day from ebay:

They bash eBay and claim superiority over us… they lock threads and suspend posting abilities too… Ive never been so insulted in all my days by such an inferior group of tards and misfits..

Can you see I am a little peeved off LOL…. I contacted their support and complained and probably to no avail anyhow.. who gives a F.. I dont.. They can go to h e double hockey sticks for all I care….

Anyhow how are yall eBayer’s doing this evening ? Good I hope..!!!

Let me hear from you all, sound off 1 at a time …..
