    Can you say “WalMart”?????

    Do a callout on this seller, please – they’re selling the same vintage items on Etsy as they are on eBay. I was thinking about bidding on the leopard bench at eBay, and decided to first search first on Etsy to see if there was one I liked better, and saw the same bench, same photo. Everything in the Etsy shop’s also listed on eBay.

    Even Wal-mart won’t stock counterfeit designer goods like this.
    Ebay has a policy against it too. This is more like something people sell on the street. Black market trademark-pirated goods.

    I wanted to search that to see what I could find, and I found this as well. Not vintage, brand frickin’ new, with the damn tags still on it. Insanity.

    Do they not even bother to follow up on the flags? This is a rhetorical question: NO, only if it is called out in the forums, but not until the thread is locked and the caller-out is muted.
    Fuck Etsy “Staff”.

    I guess Etsy is more interested in getting their listing and sale fees. Maybe they should just offer to sell themselves to eBay and get it over with.

    I flagged this when it first appeared. I even sent links to them on how you can tell it’s a knock-off. But it’s still there! I’m not sure what’s worse. That it’s marked as vintage or that she’s charging that ridiculous price for a knock off! Gah!

    Even IF it was real Chanel, and even IF it was really vintage, it’s still listed in the wrong category. It’s in the purses category!

    It’s gone. You can thank me. I confronted her.
