    My favourite part of this is the promise of a “gift rap”.

    Mass produced item.

    Wait… they’ve sold 16 of those hideous bedding sets already?? No way.

  4. imwithya October 5, 2009 at 12:51 pm #

    Oh the bedding all sold to one buyer. I guess buyers lyudmyla1965 and tony1959 really love svetlana1963’s items. At least it doesn’t look like any shilling is going on here.

    yah. right.

    Yes, look at the buyers’ names……..their name with the year they were born……hmmmm, just like the seller’s name! Coincidence?

    Here, to be more specific:


    And here’s the manufacturer:

    This is a reseller shop. The linen clothing listings used to say they were made in Europe, but they were deleted. Some linen items have been relisted with a revised description to make them coform to the Etsy TOU.

    I found a cached listing of the long linen coat on Google by searching for the phrase “hand dyed with unique technology”. The description used to read:

    This fantastic pure linen long coat from exclusive clothing collection demonstrates virtuoso tailoring and immaculate stitch.
    Created by artist from natural wrinkled linen fabric hand dyed with unique technology.
    Made in EUROPE>
    Size:UK 42, US 8.
    New with tags.
    Boutique price is 2800 EURO!
    Added on Sep 9, 2009 ‘

    The listing now looks like this:


    Did Etsy help this reseller bring her shop into line?

    I’m not sure about the jewelry.

    Countdown to this seller appearing on the front page in 5…4…

    Seriously, if this seller shows up on the FP in the next couple of days, I’m going to SCREAM.

    She lifted this too, image and all. And quite a price!

    Don’t look now, but those darned Bodhi leaf lights are back on the front page.

    Eesh. Etsy lacks creativity AND credibility.

  11. Life During Wartime October 6, 2009 at 10:31 am #

    Saw the lights on the FP. Difference: this time the item did not sell before the collection was replaced.

    At least the “shilling” feedback was left a couple days after the numerous items were “purchased”. How do you flag for shilling?

  13. Poppie October 10, 2009 at 3:56 pm #

    Interesting too that both Tony and lyudmyla misspelled “againe” in their glowing feedback left for Svetlana. This seller has had 53 sales, but only four buyers.

  14. Poppie October 10, 2009 at 4:31 pm #

    OK, I’m not ready to let Svetlana go.
    Compare the listing
    to this item sold on eBay
    sold by ethaimarket
    One of several items bought on 7 October by eBay user lyudmylam2006
    Lyudmyla?? No kidding!
    Lyudmyla paid $38 for a necklace and earrings set on eBay, and is selling the necklace for $115 on Etsy.
    Looking through ethaimarket’s feedback you’ll find at least one more batch purchase made on 29 September. I didn’t go back further in time.

  15. Poppie October 10, 2009 at 4:39 pm #

    Oh, and if you are looking for the matching earrings? Svetlana/Lyudmyla is offering to make it for you. With LOVE.

    “Just let me know if you will need maching (sic) earrings.I will make with LOVE!”
