Weird hodgepodge of stuff with the usual blurry photos but then a couple of knitted hat pictures with one being VERY professional looking that has to be hijacked from elsewhere.

*Sure enough, a reader found the hat from the shop NuxieMade.

**UPDATE 12/20- (When asked about using the striped stockings photo this was a response that was sent in)

    Love the copied and pasted description too.
    Also, the statement that the item is in stock and in the next sentence that it is a custom order item.

    Yeah this piece ( ) is a wedding cake charm made by Pandora. Here’s the link to the Pandora site for comparision.

    OMG! I hope they shut her down quickly!

    No sleuthing required past my purchases page. My daughter has that same hat in brown and blue, looks damn cute in them to:-)

    looks like some shilling going on as well.

    Check out the tags on this:

    Do you think she is a member of etsykids or etsymoms? And do you think she made these either. I don’t have time to sleuth but my guess is this isn’t her’s either.

    Oh and the blurry photos are a dead giveaway of picture theft – pixel distortion because they were not cropped for etsy.

    ugh!!! I really hope NuxieMade doesn’t get the could shoulder from Etsy when she reports this waste of space.

    Love those tags – “esty moms, esty kids, esty” LOL! I’m sure the Twilight people will be all over her ass soon too with that pic of Bella.

    There is even someone else’s watermark on some of the pics. But what really gets me is she’s had more sales on etsy this month than I have – a legitimate seller.

    Really makes one discouraged 😦

    I’m sure the Twilight people will be all over her ass soon too with that pic of Bella.
    I really hope so!

    Those “Twilight”, wooden dollar store religious bracelets drive me crazy to no end. There’s a WHOLE lot of those on etsy!

    I love her profile and her policy page too…Just the facts Mam.

  17. HappySnapperPenguins December 19, 2009 at 5:54 pm #

    Looks like the hat is gone from her site. But, there is another hat with a great photo still up. I’m betting it isn’t hers.

  18. Lu December 19, 2009 at 7:11 pm #

    I’m not 100% sure but I googled the listing title of the other good hat picture she has up and this other shop came up
    to me could be the same kid at different age (maybe a year of difference?) Not sure tho

    Here are the legwarmers.
    And the original seller has them for $2.99! LMAO

  20. Marky December 20, 2009 at 6:06 am #

    Identical leg warmers are available all over the place:

    …Who copied who? Who’s reselling who?

  21. GernBlantaclaus December 20, 2009 at 7:10 am #

    I bought the same leg warmers a few years ago and they are not handmade.

  22. JajieBo December 21, 2009 at 8:37 am #

    “her just put her name”? yikes.

    I am a fellow etsy hat seller, sadly this has been happening alot and I am sure she is telling the truth I have found many placed with nuxie mades pictures as well as mine (sitefuzz) and several others being sold by wholesale companies in china and Taiwan.
    They are using our pictures and making our hats…
    I hate to think that my hats are being made by children who make almost nothing.
    Please help me stop this.
