    Apparently one is paying for the assemblage.

    I GIVE UP!!!!!

    Yet again, a reseller is featured in an etsy finds; this time it was the UK Edition Artifical Ink. Cool idea, shitty researching.

    It was sanfranblissco or whatever their shop name is, selling those “handmade” tribal earrings you can find on alibaba. Yay, more sales and FREE advertising for wholesalers who do NOTHING but list, markup prices to make a profit.

    They do.not. care. I’m not emailing Michelle or flagging anymore.

    While I find that incredibly cheesy and way over-priced, it IS hand-assembled, isn’t it?

    No different than that Arizona tile shop, really.

    Apparently etsy is OK with that.

    Ugh.

    This is disgusting, but then again, it’s Etsy.

    Knock yourselves out making these from the free patterns you can find all over the web 🙂

    One thing to be technically OK, another thing to fucking feature it.

  9. WTFISAPDF March 16, 2010 at 8:29 am #

    Or buy it all put together from Megahobby for $23.95

    Not sure if that shop is actually putting them together. Search online and you can find them assembled- for a much lower cost.

    If you scroll down and read the TOS on papertoys site it clearly states that it’s not free to steal and sell? The details are a bit messy.

    I’ll gladly give a call out here to the OP in that closed thread!

    kimkdep — altered vintage is not Vintage. A vintage earring that has had it’s clip torn off and replaced with a stud isn’t really vintage any more. I don’t have pierced ears myself, but the thought of a typical 50s clip earring hanging from a hole in my ear makes me howl in pain. OMG, some of those guys were heavy… Hint: ladies with pierced ears can wear clip earrings, and unconverted earrings retain their value as vintage. I double dawg dare you to convert some 80s mega clip earrings to post and wear them for 10 hours straight. Love, LDW

    I was wondering if the OP’s shop of the closed thread was going to get noticed here! LOL!

  14. MadeByM**** March 16, 2010 at 12:10 pm #

    Now she can see on her GA that we did look at her shop from here!

    Wow, that’s pretty cheeky of the shop, then.

    But they’ll stay on etsy, despite flags. Etsy has that whole don’t-care thing going on. And a lack of integrity.

    am totally making all of them. for me mind – not to sell.

  17. notvintage March 17, 2010 at 12:07 pm #

    I guess integrity is too much to ask the hipster doofuses who run and work at Etsy. They don’t know what the fuck it means.

    Their colosseum is on the FP today!
