I came across this store today on etsy. http://www.etsy.com/shop/Lana0Crystal It has “handmade” right in the banner, so you KNOW it’s good!
First of all, read the profile. It sounds like a pod person wrote it, trying its best to pass for the “typical” etsy seller.
There are the massive amounts of stock, the dirt cheap prices: offensive, but not a smoking gun of someone misrepresenting herself. Or himself. What gets me are the stud earrings that she claims are handmade, which are WHITE GOLD PLATED. Do you think Lana O’Crystal does some gold plating while she’s getting dinner ready for her kids? If so, she should really keep that voltometer and the arsenic solution well away from the mac n’ cheese.
Sorry for the sarcasm, but this makes me so angry. Etsy will not do anything about it. As far as I’m concerned, you are performing a public service. Thank you.
What is this shop announcement about?! Did they just admit they have employees?? Support my employees- when they have things to sew because I got paid for it that is important to me!
I will give you the lowest price, because I need a well-known design. In June, I will resume my price. Hope my dear friend seize this opportunity. You will get beautiful clothes. All my clothes are hand-made employees. I need your support and encouragement. I hope you like our design. Please enjoy, feel free to contact me. Your support will be my motivation.
