For about 2 1/2 years I have been fuming over this particular seller, who has shops everywhere!!!. I have flagged her numerous times on Etsy and i even sent an email to Artfire admins last week about her being there under false pretenses.
The name is Janine King Designs, and from my Google research, I have found listings for shops on Etsy, eBay, Artfire, Bonanzle, Mintd, and Ecrater, and that’s only on the first 5 pages.
The number of her sales is what got me nosing around originally, cause the type of item she puts out is not a 10 minute deal, and how anyone can make and sell 362 pieces in just the first 16 days of December on Etsy, (and still have close to 100 items in shop) is an impossible feat! She makes purses, wristlets, iPod pouches, laptop covers, and the like, so you know it it not an easy item to make…certainly not in the numbers she has been selling.
On Bonanzle she has 4,977 feedback…and she has only been there since September 7th of this year.
She has over 12,324 feedback on eBay, but I guess she started there back in 1999 or so.
The site where I found the employee info is start.cortera.com/
here is the link http://start.cortera.com/company/research/k3q3nus4s/janine-king-designs/
Every time I think about this woman and her devious ways I just about scream, and I’d love to be able to get her the hell off Etsy, and Artfire as well…someone should be able to find a way to show her up for what she is…a fabricator and conniving toad!
Of course, she has now put her shops on vacation mode for the holidays, so you can’t see her inventory, but you sure can see her sales.
Hope someone can come up with a way to blast her out of the water. Would love to know someone in Ithica, NY who could check out her little “cottage industry”.
Anyway, just had to vent, so hope you will see fit to post this on the blog.
Thanks for listening (reading)
