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.

    Good find! So we know now that she buys at least some jewelry on Ebay for resale. Her old deleted listings for the linen clothing say they are European boutique items. A link was posted for the girl’s sweater set. The bed linens are obvious resale.

    You can’t see the items she got FB for after 30 days, but I looked at the sellers on Ebay she bought from earlier. They include at least 2 sellers of Baltic amber jewelry, and one seller of leather bracelets — including stingray leather.

    Why is this reseller shop still open on Etsy?

    Found the link in the comments (this one from Michelle) in an earlier blog post about Svetlana (‘Handmade’ ugly something is the title). Here it is again for reference

    I feel really bad for those that have been duped into buying this jewellery – not only do they think its handmade and one of a kind but the price they are being swindled out of is insane! Etsy should refund all these buyers in my opinion.

    (those buyers that are actually real buyers, i shoud add!)

    Wow, she even steals the pictures too!

    I don’t begrudge someone from making a profit – I do it, and when I sold designer bags on ebay I made a profit as well. But it DOES piss me off when people sell non handmade stuff on etsy, of course. And steal pictures. I almost want to convo the people who hearted the necklace with a link to the ebay listing….

    Her feedback looks like real buyers may only have made a handful of purchases. The rest of them could be herself as a shill, and family members or friends.

    I don’t get how having this Etsy shop benefits these shilling resellers. There are venues where they could move their merchandise without being called out for breaking rules. Besides, it actually costs you money to list items and then buy them from yourself: listing fees, PayPal fees, Etsy FVF. Another shop laughing all the way to the bank, I guess.

    If you go to goofbay.com and put her username in ebay bidder history, you will see she has bought about 50 of these necklaces over the past months and now they are all in her etsy shop!!!

    I did that and sent it on to Admin. Not that it will do a lick of good.

    posted this in the comments of the relevant thread but thought you might be interested to see that beadstyle/catalystphotography/catalusticexpression etc etc is back with Jars and Dreamscapes!

    Yeah, Amy. And she closed her CatalystPhotography shop altogether, although the beadstyle one just says she’s “taking a break from Etsy.”

    Short break.

    marumaru on etsy buys pendants and earrings from urbanrose on etsy and resells them (upping the price by a lot). look at marumaru’s feedback from urbanrose then look at maru’s first page of listings — the hepburn, owls and monroe.

    outrageous….

    Actually marumaru adds a finished chain which is allowed by etsy rules, and the mark up is reasonable compared to Svetlana1963’s markup and not to mention, violation of etsy rules.
