    And it’s still farking there. Could it BE more blatant????

  2. Etsy Person May 6, 2010 at 9:25 am #

    Flag it!

  3. it stinks May 6, 2010 at 10:59 am #

    Their items are all gone now, so I guess etsy admin are helping them rewrite their descriptions, etc in order to be etsy legal.
    I’ll bet $1 that they’ll be back with new descriptions.

  4. Stephica May 6, 2010 at 11:51 am #

    Some of the items are still there, such as the “beautifully designed one of a kind (OOAK) flower honey drop earrings” that you can “Let us know if you are interested in special wholesale pricing.”

    Sounds really unique.

    If you read the thread you can see peasblossom stalking me. She posts in most of my threads; guess she is still angsty about the treasuries I made that revealed they waste your fees to put peasblossom (71 times so far) and other favorites on the FP repeatedly.

  5. Stephica May 6, 2010 at 11:52 am #

    Sorry, that’s peaseblossomstudio. In case she Googles her name.

  6. uh-huh May 6, 2010 at 12:25 pm #

    she may be in training for the next round of forum moderator hiring. apparently there’s a quota for obnoxiousness you must achieve prior to acceptance by admin.

  7. Life During Wartime May 6, 2010 at 12:27 pm #

    All the items seem to be back now. I guess this is another reseller who has received the Etsy Seal of Approval. Hello Kitty and all…incredible.

    “If you read the thread you can see peasblossom stalking me. She posts in most of my threads; guess she is still angsty about the treasuries I made that revealed they waste your fees to put peasblossom (71 times so far) and other favorites on the FP repeatedly.”

    Wow. Are you STILL talking about those treasuries and the unbelievably amazing things that they revealed? All they seemed to reveal to others was that you spend way too much time on craftcult, typing in the names of other etsians. And that you have a one track mind. Seriously, get a life. That’s not what this site is for.

  9. tweetwo pies May 6, 2010 at 1:03 pm #

    Yeah Stephica, you are so busy stalking craftcult and getting high! You would think that all this hemming and hawing over Etsy would be a buzz kill for you.

  10. Aggy May 6, 2010 at 1:05 pm #

    Hmmm, doesn’t sound like the peaseblossomstudio I know. I think she is on the front page a lot because her work is really good and lots of people are in the forums a great deal. Picking on her doesn’t seem kind or warranted at all.

  11. Stephica May 6, 2010 at 1:17 pm #

    I love how quickly peaseblossomstudio found this post, tweeted it to her friends, deleted to the tweet linking to it and got upset!

    Gee, I wonder if these three posts supporting peaseblossomstudio are from her three friends she tweeted or if they are regulars of callin’ out?!

    “That’s not what this site is for.”

    “other hot topics since admin won’t let us.”

    Reading is your friend!

  12. tweetwo pies May 6, 2010 at 1:22 pm #

    Oh no how dare she talk to her friends! Isn’t that awful? Oh she has friends? She doesn’t deserve friends, don’t you think? I mean don’t you think she only deserved enemies?

    Not everyone sees the world the same way you do stephie-sweets.

    If you want to play detective expose, figure out who shot JFK, you tool.

  13. tweetwo pies May 6, 2010 at 1:31 pm #

    wanted to add that with all the reseller bullshit going on, you choose to focus on honest crafters who do hand make their items who happen to get featured a lot. Maybe it is fair but maybe it is not.

    However with the reseller bullshit, stephie-darling, I think you are going to tough row to hoe trying to get people on your bandwagon. Maybe refocus your efforts. I know you may have to dig deep for that motivation but, I have faith you may find it through the haze.

  14. pease May 6, 2010 at 1:37 pm #

    Oh noes! I make the front page! Here’s the secret: I make lots of treasuries and I get in lots. That’s all. My first year on Etsy I hardly knew anyone and I hardly made any treasuries and I hardly got featured and my pictures sucked. I got a new camera and took lots and lots and lots of new pics and got to know people by making treasuries.

    There’s a ton of people who have made the front page far more than me who have somehow slipped under your radar.

    And yes, I tweeted! OMG, call the authorities. And yes, I tweet to my friends. The horror!

    Have a great day Steph. ♥

  15. JK May 6, 2010 at 1:43 pm #

    Can’t this cutesy-poo passive-aggressive personal drama bullshit stay in the Etsy forms where it belongs?

  16. Stephica May 6, 2010 at 2:01 pm #

    You’re right peaseblossomstudio, lets look at how many times some of your friends who have included you in FP treasuries have been featured. This took less than ten minutes to research, because all I had to do was look up peaseblossomstudio on craftcult.com and see the people who made lists featuring her.

    GlitzGlitter 67
    TheFancyLamb 93
    theBeadAerie 140
    slinkymalinkicat 180
    Lirola 190
    maclancy 201
    jessjamesjake 230
    ThePeachTree 231

    Yep, clearly no unscrupulous abuse of the system by spamming bland treasuries and constantly including your front page buddies there! It must be hard work.

    @JK I will stop engaging in dialogue with them.

  17. tweetwo pies May 6, 2010 at 2:15 pm #

    Thanks for doing us the dialogue favor! This will give you more time for you all-important research.

    Next thing you know you will be unraveling the human genome. You should be proud of all your noble causes.

    Bland treasuries is all a matter of opinion of course. I am glad you are taking up this cause though, good for you. The world and Etsy needs more people with ridiculous campaigns and nothing else to do with their 10 minutes but call out decent sellers.

    Like I said…… you spend way too much time on craftcult, typing in the names of other etsians. Thanks for proving me right.

    You’re being disingenuous and contradictory here. You posted those treasuries feigning innocence at the animosity they caused, pretending that you just wanted to honor etsians who had been on the fp a lot. I recall a lot of “oh gosh, gee, wow!! you guys are so awesome!!!” type of comments from you in the treasuries. And then you came here and laughed at them behind their backs.

  19. kitten May 6, 2010 at 2:51 pm #

    Stephica, don’t sweat it. Pease is one who is always arrogant and obnoxious in the forums. She enjoys talking down to people, but runs crying when someone calls her on it (as she did again right here).

    It’s nice to see her knocked off her lofty pedestal she’s placed herself on.

    Oh, and she probably is stalking you. I’ve seen her do it before… seems her new “stalkee” is WIAPilot. She’s so cruel towards her.

    Pease – being a nice person – FAIL

  20. WTFISAPDF May 6, 2010 at 2:51 pm #

    As a buyer only on Etsy, it’s just wonderful to see sellers acting like complete idiots.

    I see all these theads scolding Etsy for low sales, views, etc…
    From a buyer’s perspective, all I can say is it gets pretty old, pretty fast, seeing the same stuff on the front page over and over. The buying public has no clue how much stuff actually is for sale.

    Is that the resale Budda head that is on the FP curated by Etsy right now?

  23. Stephica May 6, 2010 at 3:22 pm #

    There is a reseller on the front page right now that someone pointed out in the comments here last month: http://www.etsy.com/shop/theroomnexttoyours

    I can’t remember who mentioned it, but those are resold items from the Dollar Tree.

  24. crazy cat lady May 6, 2010 at 3:23 pm #

    It takes two seconds to look something up on craft cult – the same amount of time (or less) it takes to tweet and come over here to post a snarky comment.

  25. Life During Wartime May 6, 2010 at 3:24 pm #

    I mean BuddHa head LOL…that’s what I get for having ham and cheese on flatbread for lunch. Go meat!

  26. ugh May 6, 2010 at 3:41 pm #

    Well in all fairness, WIAPilot is kind of a snob, always bragging about how successful their business is ( they are an etsy buyer only), how busy they are to respond to convo’s right away but expect sellers to be quick about it, because they are dealing with her, starting “advice” threads but really telling sellers how to run their shops, and disparaging certain crafts.

    I have never dealt with WIA personally, and I hope to hell she never comes across my shop.

  27. Sarah May 6, 2010 at 3:49 pm #

    ECO delivers! As soon as I saw Stephica’s closed thread, I knew I’d get confirmation that it was the Buddha if I darted back here.

    And I’d be a little terrified if WIAPilot bought something from me. All sales are good sales in my book, but I don’t think I’d breath again until she’d posted positive feedback.

    ———————

    Yup. except I don’t have a shop.

    That was too bad about the FP buddha as I really liked it. Figures.

    Also:

    Pease gets on the FP because she makes a shitload of treasuries, and has them made with her in them. She and her friends or whatever make treasuries that fit with Etsy’s hipster vibe, and they make a lot of them, so altogether they get chosen often for the FP. Why this surprises or bothers anyone is beyond me.

    Facts:
    Etsy has a “look.” Sites with looks, IMO, look cool. Witness Artfire.

    Pease has taken photos that look like Etsy’s look.

    Pease makes a lot of treasuries, and has friends who make treasuries, and they feature each other. Also they promote the treasuries. I see absolutely nothing any weirder about this than about people who use facebook/twitter for advertising. Anyone *can* do this (esp. now), Pease just *does*. It’s how she invests her time and the medium (FP) to which she gears her photos.

  29. ananemone May 6, 2010 at 4:10 pm #

    Wait, so I can get that Buddha for like $1 somewhere? Awesome…. 🙂

    ^^^Recapture obviously isn’t old enough to know that there was no spandex blend fabric in the 1960s – early 70s.

    And I hate it when vintage sellers refer to their factory made wares as ‘one of a kind’ because that is gross misrepresentation…just like handmade sellers who use all new materials to create something of their own design and call it ‘vintage’. What are these people on? Maybe I need some of that…

  37. pease May 6, 2010 at 4:49 pm #

    that was probably not the best thing to say. kitten–if you are someone I’ve offended directly (other than a difference of opinion about admin or sales and stuff), then I do apologize.

  38. GucciBooty May 6, 2010 at 5:30 pm #

    Please. I know you are all frustrated, but this is BUSINESS not personal. If you don’t like someone, who gives a shit? This blog is for calling out resellers, is it not? And it performs a valuable service, as long as it is taken seriously.
    Let’s keep it pertinent and keep the blog’s intent intact, guys.

    There was a blog post on front page favoritism (dubbed Treasury Mafia):

    https://etsycallout.wordpress.com/2010/02/09/treasury-mafia/

  41. detroit May 6, 2010 at 6:46 pm #

    I don’t know a lot about this ‘treasury’ crap-ola. But something about the ‘treasury-mafia’ practices do strike me as a bit disingenuous, and gaming the system.

    I dunno. Can’t blame someone too much for exploiting the system, but, IMO, it’s oogy. Working the numbers to get on the front page. Not acting out of genuine love for items.

    CMON! Be honest. You know what you’re doing.

    Yes, this blog is for calling out resellers. But also for calling out other crap too. See the byline, ‘resellers, mistaggers, AND OTHER HOT TOPICS.’

    I think treasury stuffing falls under the category of other hot topics.

    Well at any rate, now with Treasury East there are an unlimited number of treasuries and therefore no reason to complain that I can see.

  47. Etsy Person May 7, 2010 at 5:45 am #

    I agree about WIA – think there are cocktails served while she posts in the forums because the posts get weirder and weirder as she holds court.

  48. it stinks May 7, 2010 at 6:15 am #

    The complaint is not with being able to make treasuries, it’s that etsy admin picks the ones created by the same group of people (who use the same etsy shops) over and over, ad naseum, for the front page.

    So it’s not the “treasury mafia’s” fault for making treasuries that are basically always the same, it’s etsy admin’s fault for putting them on the front page. Frankly, I think the “treasury mafia” should just be honest about what they are doing. Working the system to benefit yourself is what business people and companies have been doing for hundreds of years (or maybe forever). Alot of people would consider them smart – not lacking ethics or anything.

    And I would like to say that a couple of weekends ago, I was in about 12 different treasuries – so that must mean I have nice pics and nice items in my shop – yet none of those made it to the front page. Of course, none of the treasuries were beige and that seems to be the only color that etsy admin can see.

    I look through the treasuries and see so many with COLOR but none of those get picked. Basically, if you want to “work the system” like this treasury mafia does, you need to create bland treasuries, using beige and only beige (or shades of beige – which is beige) and maybe send etsy admin a box of cookies and maybe they will notice you and put your treasury on the front page.

    It doesn’t have anything to do with quality of work, handmade, ethics, morals, or anything else. Basically, if we want to be successful on etsy, we need to learn to play the game. This is also true in other jobs. We can wrap our “I’m better than them because my craft is pure” cloak around us all we want, the fact is, these other people who are working the system are also the ones making the sales because they are the ones getting the free promotion. So they’re laughing all the way to the bank.

    It’s sad, but it’s the situation.
    Basically, if you want to make money on etsy or any other “handmade” site, then you need to work the system or be a reseller. It’s not about handmade or what a great artist you are.

  49. MadeByM**** May 7, 2010 at 6:41 am #

    I’m curious to see if the FP will change up with the Treasury East…..my guess is not. Etsy admin. likes a certain look and they will stick to it. Sad cuz I have made up some cool looking treasuries (good photos, price ranges, themes, colors, etc.) but they have never been chosen….because I’m not in the “in crowd”. Etsy does not cater to the buyer, they cater to the seller to get their $$$.

    This blog IS for more than just reseller call-outs. The front page favoritism falls under “hot topics”. And the way that certain sellers get on the FP all the time bothers those that pay their listing fees but never get the free advertisement.

    I understand AND feel the frustration about the treasuries and the FP, but name calling and attacking is rather childish and unprofessiona (even though the FP favortism does remind me of high school and how the cheerleaders and jocks were put on pedestals and how they voted for each other for everything).

    If there was ever any doubt of who you were, this is classic TwoIndustriousFerrets style. Didn’t you just go over all this on the other topic? Remember, I won’t convo you because I don’t want a thread started about me, don’t want to publically be called a retard and dickbag by you even though it speaks more about what kind of person(s) you are.

    It’s probably not wise to have a melt down as you did above on a public blog, especially since most know wahwah is TwoIndustriousFerrets.

    ______________

    Thank you pease, but you’ve never offended ME, we’ve never talked. My point was, why are you offending ANYONE? (and I’m not talking about Etsy differences in opinion).

    Why would you continually post in the forums just to take a sarcastic jab at someone? You’re not posting anonymously, you’re representing your shop. Also complaining over and over about a buyer who returned something to your shop… IMHO not good for business.

    (Recently you joined into one of WIA’s threads to add a mean post about what she does for a living (that has nothing to do with Etsy). If you don’t like her that’s fair, but what you said (and it had nothing to do with the original topic) reflected badly on you/your shop, not WIA. She should be able to start a thread without getting insults thrown at her, which ends up getting her thread closed. (and you weren’t the only one guilty of harassing her)

    I would of bought one of your journal necklaces long ago, but your forum presence turned me off. Who knows how many buyers you have done that to?

    Just some observations, take them or leave them.

    sorry but I agree with the comments about pease – her books are gorgeous but she is petty and mean in the forums and to me that is unprofessional. i saw her comments about someone returning a book to her too, you would have thought someone drowned some kittens, the way she carried on about it. i mean, really? no one has ever returned something before in the history of the world??? why was that such a huge deal, i still don’t get it. get over it already my gosh, you make yourself look bad by talking about your customers.

    Etsy staff totally fucking coached Red Button Box instead of shutting them down. Check out the new edited listings and shop announcment:

    “Red Button Box is a boutique and retail supplier company based out of northern California. We are passionate about creating fabulous and tasteful accessories. Each item that we add to our online catalog has been handmade with attentional detail and LOVE! Our goal is to delight and inspire educated women ages 18-35.”

    Ooooh, handmade with attentional detail and LOVE!

    Once I’m done with classwork tonight I’ll be writing a thread that I’m sure will get shut down, even if I don’t “call anyone out.”

  63. Sam May 7, 2010 at 5:50 pm #

    Atleast Red Button Box changed there shop announcement, but this shop Chicleather; http://www.etsy.com/shop/chicleather
    were called out in an earlier thread (april, 27) https://etsycallout.wordpress.com/2010/04/27/location-paris-shipped-from-morocco/
    have changed nothing, the location is still Paris and the Items are shipped from Morocco.

    I wrote an email to Etsy but they have not bothered to reply. It seems I have made a fool of myself shoping on Etsy thinking that Etsy had genuine artisan stuff.

  64. ananemone May 7, 2010 at 6:00 pm #

    We just want some clarity on one kind of reopening – when a shop is shut down, or all the items removed, after clearly alluding to using manufacturers in their announcements or profile, why are they allowed to start up again after removing or rewording the allusion to manufacturers, even while the items are still the same? Very specific answer please from Etsy admin, as this is a great worry for those of us following the reseller issue and a fundamental matter of the site’s integrity.

    Yeah, sure, RedButtonBox makes their own items, like this one with bugle beads or seed beads, she doesn’t know which:
    http://www.etsy.com/listing/45343256/brass-monkey-earrings-by-redbuttonbox

    Maybe it’s just because I refuse to pay retail++++ and never shop at bead stores for supplies, but all my bugle beads and seed beads were purchased in little packages that say which kind of beads they are, the size, and all that jazz.

    What a fake!

  66. Stephica May 7, 2010 at 7:48 pm #

    I made a post on Etsy, lets see how long it will last.

    I noticed that redbuttonbox’s “blog” still has the reseller phrasing: http://redbuttonbox.wordpress.com/

    No, I wouldn’t. I stay away from people that piss me off. Otherwise it leads to high blood pressure for no good reason.
    There are plenty of assholes in the world, stay away from the ones you can avoid. That includes aggressive drivers and people who swear at you for shit when they don’t even know you.

    The Ultimate Avoidance. If you cannot straighten someone out to their face and get it over with, get over it. This does get easier with age and experience…..

    You are Gucci. I am 42 years old. I should learn to ignore immaturity. I get enough of it at home…I have three kids.

    I like how in the redbutton link to the ‘seed bugle bead’ earrings LDW posted above, they’re described as OOAK, then, in the next breath the listing says they’re available for wholesale.

    Yeah. Right.

    My favorite, hence my alias. Overpriced designer vintage handbags and shoes on Etsy. For those who must have designer mass produced but feel better about it if it is ’embellished’ or ‘vintage’.
    Just my own little quirk. If you like this stuff, have at it. SUCKERS.

  79. jenn May 10, 2010 at 4:04 am #

    Re # 74, FryShopping’s policies and profile look like they have been flagged and told to make their shop more handmade.

    There are “HANDMADE” proclamations all over the shop.
    (rolling my eyes at this point…)

    Regarding copyright infringement, EtsyBitch has a new post up about a shop closed by Etsy for apparently no reason, but if you see their sold items its A LOT of copyrighted images – Disney, Lego, Star wars. I don’t think that’s why they are closed but if only!

    And Etsy Bitch expects ti get people riled about this? Ridiculous.

  86. PussDaddy May 10, 2010 at 9:12 am #

    The only thing dumber than an Etsy Bitch is, well, another Etsy Bitch.

  87. ugh May 10, 2010 at 9:16 am #

    Its so stupid! And one of the Bitches posted to “get over it” to someone who thinks its fine. I can’t believe the Bitches think its wrong that Etsy closed this shop! Talk about being single minded in their Etsy hate.

  88. PussDaddy May 10, 2010 at 10:25 am #

    The only way the Bitches can actually make any money is to rope all of you in to read their blather so that you keep their blog up and running so people buy ad space on it.

  89. Stephica May 10, 2010 at 10:53 am #

    There is nothing funnier than people getting indignant about being closed down or about “being copied” when they themselves profit from copyright infringement. They got rightfully pwnt.

  90. detroit May 10, 2010 at 1:32 pm #

    I want to get excited. Monkeysnmermaids (with near 2,000 REsales of Thai sweatshop clothes and crafts) – is EMPTY.

    Way to go Etsy – you’ve facilitated 2,000 fradulent ‘handmade’ sales with one seller alone! Woot!

    I’m probably getting too excited at the emptying – right? I’m sure it’ll reopened in a couple days with “HANDMADE WITH LOVE’ in the banner – lol.

    Anyone notice anything else in their reseller list closed? Or at least empty, and getting coached – lol?

  91. wahwah May 10, 2010 at 2:10 pm #

    One copyright infringer down, seven thousand to go…..

  92. PussDaddy May 10, 2010 at 4:21 pm #

    peaseblossombitchio is in my suggested shops. I can’t stand her obnoxious ass and can’t wait for her to get the hell out of my Etsy.

  93. uh-huh May 10, 2010 at 9:52 pm #

    ……since she’s mentioned here, I noticed this in the Etsy forums:
    http://www.etsy.com/forums_thread.php?thread_id=6517759&page=1

    peaseblossomstudio says:
    Anyone who is anyone online gets picked on. Generally it means you are important enough that people (who have no life) notice what you say and do. But it also brings publicity to the (nose) picker, does it not? Because some people wouldn’t get anywhere unless they piggyback on others’ success by talking about them.

  94. MadeByM**** May 11, 2010 at 5:34 am #

    Oh, yeah………like we are all trying to ride the coattails of peaseblossomstuido……give me a break!

    I am curious if all of you act this way in person. Lighten up….no need to take treasuries so seriously. There are entire teams based around making treasuries. Why are these handful of ladies such a thorn in your side?

    Also, cussing and putting other people down is not an effective way to voice your opinions because it only upsets people and fuels the fire. If you accuse someone of being rude, why be rude in return? That doesn’t really prove your point or make you better than them.

    Wow. It is amazing what Etsy Buyers find on these blogs. I actually am very easy to deal with as a buyer, but of course those of you posting these opinions have no clue. You don’t even know me, but yet you make all these assumptions about me.

    Yes, in the past I have tried to offer my opinions as a Buyer and a Businesswoman on etsy. Have I always come across in the manner that I intended to? Probably not. And if anyone has noticed, I rarely post on the forum any longer for just that reason.

    For the record: I DO always respond promptly and I always pay promptly. I wish you all great success on etsy, but it certainly won’t be found by tearing down the very etsy Buyers who strive to greatly support the etsy Community.

    …………………………
    You post in the forums every damn day. I think you feel that all the sellers on there are total idiots and if you weren’t there to tell us what to do we’d be totally lost. I especially love how you pitch a total fit when someone disagrees with you, then you go totally off the deep end and the forum gets shut down. You have mentioned how the forum has a school playground mentality, it’s funny because you run to admin and tell on anyone that you feel is “picking on you” ie-disagreeing with you.

    The funny thing is you really think you are welcome in the forum. Bragging about how much money you spend and what you do for a living (in EVERY SINGLE post) makes you look desperate and very sad. It seems you’d have more to do than troll the etsy forums all day.

  108. Mokie July 23, 2012 at 2:24 pm #

    Wow. I got here because I was googling “peaseblossom studio” to find out what that chick’s deal is and I’ve come to find out that not only is she a racist, but apparently she’s an all around c*nt (and has been for some time.)

    I don’t understand why her tacky journals are so popular, either. They look like they were made by someone who can’t sew and has no interest in learning. Etsy has really dropped the bar for what is now considered “quality hand made.” There isn’t a single thing in her shop that is finished properly. Not a binding seam to be seen anywhere in her leather section. And don’t get me started on the fabric journals. Are they SUPPOSED to be puckering like that? Is that on purpose?

    She should spend less time being nasty to other people in the forums and more time HONING HER CRAFT.
