    Seller’s profile:
    Thanks for viewing my work. I appreciate your notes. 🙂 Keep them coming. Many of you are kind enough to send me a note when you come across a piece you like, even if you can’t afford to bid right then. I love your notes and I thank you for them. I try to answer each one within 24 hours.

    Purchase with confidence- I have 100% feedback and my paintings are rising in value.

    Considering they just signed up today, I doubt they’ve received so many “notes” they need to address them in their profile unless the notes say, “Get the hell off Etsy!”

    As for their feedback, it’s 0%, not 100.

    Well here’s another reseller of paintings that crops up about every other night.

    I really want to open an account- HKNPB, and shop shop shop.

    Thank you ECO!

    At least the seller is making it easy by using the exact same cut and paste wording!

    Shit reseller:

    $9 for those bracelets? I don’t think so, Tim. Same with the purse.

    Sandra McCray appears to be a manufacturer, not a reseller:

    But it’s not handmade.

    Another crap reseller:

    I know that a collective can open a shop on Etsy. But what about a group of business people who employ native artisans to make traditional crafts to sell to tourists and in hotel giftshops, and are now on Etsy?

    Here is a reference to this group I found elsewhere

    I dunno that six business people equals a ‘collective’ even if they hire out their work to native artisans.

    I would agree Life.

    What do you make of this shop – the pashminas seem very dubious as is the jewellery:

    Hi Amy

    I think you are right to be suspicious about ClassyWedding. I have a scarf that looks like this one and which I bought at a fair. It is made in China.

    It is always suspect when a shop has such diverse items and in such big quantities. I don’t think the brooches or pashminas are handmade. And the silk flowers glued onto hair clips are a favorite handmade cop-out on Etsy. The minimum effort makes a very pretty item and is considered handmade. Gag.

    Re: ClassyWedding


    It’s just a different color…

  18. Life During Wartime November 15, 2009 at 12:04 pm #

    ClassyWedding is another one of those Etsy shops that has diverse items, low prices, and no language in the descriptions that suggests the seller makes all the items in the shop.

    How exactly does this seller ‘handmake’ her shawls and scarves? Does she weave them? Dye them? Add the ‘handwoven fringes’? Or her set rhinestone brooches? She may be hanging the pendants on the chains and making the earrings…hard to prove either way.

  19. imwithya November 15, 2009 at 12:42 pm #

    ClassyWedding has sold tons of those scarves! What is wrong with Etsy’s buyers??? If she makes them, even just dyes them then she should be able to do a custom order in any color right? Like a bunch to give as gifts to bridesmaids. Anybody have a sock puppet account they can ask her with?

  20. Poppie November 15, 2009 at 1:21 pm #

    I posted a link earlier to FashionUnic who is a likely supplier to a store like ClassyWedding (The comment is awaiting moderation.) It sells an identical pashmina for $5.75

  21. Poppie November 15, 2009 at 1:50 pm #

    And her brooches probably comes from this wholesaler, or one like it:
    who also sells scarves

    She has this same brooch design in her shop.

  22. GernBlanston November 15, 2009 at 3:21 pm #

    ClassyWeddings does not make her pashminas. Asked and answered ages ago.

  23. Freckleyredhead November 17, 2009 at 10:34 am #

    Those shawls from Classy Weddings are available in China for a buck or two apiece in the markets. A friend of mine brought me one from her last trip.
