“I do not make jewelry, but I saw a pair of earrings that looks exactly like these when I was out shopping yesterday. I could pick them up for you and ship them on Monday.”

NICE.

    What an a hole.

    I sincerely hope that whoever bought those did it as a joke/it’s shilling, because the alternative is that Etsy has in fact hit a new low.

  4. um no August 16, 2010 at 7:37 pm #

    Totally not surprised.

    Other than obvious things like sending jobs overseas, blah, blah. How much of this do you think the “new” dot coms like Ebay, and Etsy helped by selling their counterfeit, imitation, and bootlegged items? And how long before they surpass the U.S.? Japan was second because of their innovations in science and video games, etc.

    This was fulfilled through an alchemy request. I submitted this to ECO because I check the Alchemy and flag almost every day. I click on the pictures, and when this one popped up, it pissed me off.

    Nice that a supposed ‘artisan’ would steal a possible chance for a jewelry maker to craft one. What a way to support your fellow artisans.

    Maybe we should all start suggesting big box stores and offer to go and buy it for the customer and take more work away from handmade artisans.

    That was a good call-out, Inspector! Amazing brass in UrbanPlayground’s underoos.

    Why shouldn’t an Etsy seller suggest a big box store?

    Seriously. Etsy as a site features factory ‘handmade’ goods on the front page daily. Etsy features ‘vintage’ shops that sell factory fresh repros daily. There doesn’t seem to be a lot of difference. And Etsy has curated front pages with nearly new Target items included in the collection. If someone had a shop with ‘samples’ of big box items in it, they might wind up as featured seller!

    Nothing is surprising anymore.

    gross!

    Good job, UrbanPlayground. smh

  13. Anonymous August 17, 2010 at 2:37 pm #

    Now that’s just A MESS.

  14. JohnCock August 17, 2010 at 3:53 pm #

    That is just all kinds of wrong.

    Forgive the OT, but I cannot be the only one who considers this offensive:

    http://www.etsy.com/shop/sexoffender?ref=seller_info

    notice the avatar

    I apologize to any who are offended by this posting.

  16. eyefortineye August 17, 2010 at 7:07 pm #

    omg, off to flag….

  17. jelly belly August 17, 2010 at 7:20 pm #

    Just fyi, that avatar is of a (strange) family, fully clothed, wearing knit outfits that make them look naked. Like, knitted with pubic hair and testicles and stuff, knitted. The daughter is examining the dad’s junk. His knitted junk, that is. Sooooo awkward. Really creepy. So, the ppl in the avatar aren’t actually naked, they just look that way.

    Gak sorry about the double. Here’s a larger image of what I mean. nsfw maybe…..

  20. eyefortineye August 17, 2010 at 7:28 pm #

    I could tell they were not naked, but thought that it was photoshopped. them wearing knit “costumes” including public hair is just well, so flaggable because it involved minors.

    The “artwork” drawing of a young girl squatting, peeing and throwing up is FETISH child porn.

    Simple.

    FLAGGED.

  21. sick of cupcakes August 17, 2010 at 7:29 pm #

    That shop gives me the skeevies. The description of this print is just wrong.

    I don’t know that a girl fondling her father’s (?) knit penis is any better than the actual thing. Does that somehow prevent him from getting aroused? It’s so disturbing!

  23. bellacruz August 17, 2010 at 7:47 pm #

    How is that any better than the girl fondling the real thing? Does the knit suit prevent the adult from getting aroused?

  24. Life During Wartime August 17, 2010 at 7:52 pm #

    WJW…if this stuff isn’t illegal, it comes way too close to that.

    Proof once more that Etsy has no S(r)CAM bot. I would think any venue the size of Etsy would be looking every day for the characters S-E-X-O-F-F-E-N-D-E-R as a shop name or a user name or even an item title. C’mon, Etsy. It’s time to grow the f%ck up already, and take responsibility.

  25. eyefortineye August 17, 2010 at 7:54 pm #

    Exactly. And I’m shocked that so many people are laughing about it on regretsy. I’m not prudish, but this is child porn. There is no fine line, this is something created for specific fetish lovers. That avatar alone is disturbing, where’s child protective services for this one!!

    Do what you want drawing adults as long as no children are depicted.

  26. Akhenaten August 18, 2010 at 2:28 am #

    Wow.

  27. jelly belly August 18, 2010 at 6:11 am #

    In case there’s any doubt, I find it disgusting. The little girl examining the penis thing is gross because she’s doing it while it’s on HER DAD. It’s just……..there are no words.

  28. boots August 18, 2010 at 2:12 pm #

    if this got into the right hands it could really harm etsy! i hope they remove it soon

    Way late to respond to this, but, YES, e-commerce has made sales of this crap boom. Used to be, you had to go to markets in Asia, or at least to a Chinatown in a big city to buy the fakes. I remember being in college, and some dumb girls talking about how they couldn’t wait to hit Canal street in NYC on their vacation to buy fake designer goods (I guess I just gave away my advanced age – lol – I went to college b4 the internet boom).

    Anyway, now you don’t even have to leave your living room, much less your city / country to buy that crap.

    I think I told this story before, but I worked in IP once, and an attorney in Asia told me about accompanying police on a raid of a factory making counterfeit goods. He said they were met with automatic weapon fire!!! It is BIG, multimillion dollar business. Facilitated by sites with no morals, like Etsy.
