Mudd, Steve Madden, and Nine West are not vintage shoes
Something tells me ModernLibrary doesn’t care.
Hey all you dumb fucks, Steve Madden was established in 1990 the likelihood that any of this stuff is from the first year of manufacturing is pretty slim. And that 80’s steve madden brown suede coat? I don’t think so!!!!!!!!
What a garage sale full of tat! I think I’m wearing more vintage items at the moment than there are in that shop.
It’s a common occurance. Just do a search under ‘handmade’ for vintage shoes, heels in particular, and you will see more than you ever want to.
It’s rampant in all the categories.
My birthday suit is vintage times two.
Very easy to google one’s items in most cases to determine if they are vintage or not.
I sent a nice convo.
Your convo must have worked! Thanks bellacruz :)
Well, some of the remaining shoes aren’t vintage either, but, I can’t convo about each pair. *Sigh*
fabricute includes her other shop in her treasuries all the time – many go front page. looksie – http://www.etsy.com/treasury/4c80c8a16f5f6d91f290867e/after-dinner-we-may-have-a-walk-through?index=6
fabricute swapped out her item and and deleted the comments calling her out! she is sabahnur
in the treasury comments, what is meant by the curator fabricute when she asks “will you join me?”
Glad she took the item out, maybe now she’ll play by the rules. That pisses me off. Admin don’t have everyone’s extra shops memorized, for crap’s sake. I hate it when people try to circumvent the established rules for their own gain. “oh I wouldn’t put an item from my own shop in the treasury, that’s tacky!! but I will put in an item from my other shop……” Yeah ok. You suck.
Will you join me refers to the title of the treasury…..going for a walk after dinner.
I just found out an interesting tidbit by experimentation. If you know a seller has two shops, you can put both names in the searchbox and it will bring up all the treasuries both are included in, whether they’re curator and featuring their other shop, or another curator has put an item from each shop in.
Just don’t use a comma between the names, put a space. Works like a charm.
Inspector, sometimes I’m astounded at your genius! off to explore!
modernlibrary’s sold items….wow. i don’t think a single piece of clothing was more than a couple of years old.
The “vintage” suede coat was sold through Victoria’s Secret catalog in 2006. I own it. $45 is a good deal. I think I paid $80-100 for it.
Very interesting Inspector, and ironic that at this very moment, there is a thread on Etsy discussing the FP and some comments about the sneaky 2 shop promoting going on….
Tragic and ridiculous! The only things “made by bang” are TOU violations.
Juicy Couture was founded in 1994-so not vintage. And ya gotta laugh at the ‘Gevench’ listing it’s right on the tag for gosh sakes. Ya lying, suckass moron.
Okay, I reported madebybang’s socks listing. One of them. I explained why, I also explained that the rest of the shop is not vintage either. or handmade. The socks are removed, but the other socks and stuff are still there. go figger.
Maybe Etsy corporate is super excited to have a shop run by Bang, handmaker of goods under famous couture labels. Gag. I mean, if ever a shop needed to have its items ‘disappeared’ that shop is MadeByBang.
made by f****kedup!!!
And check out their feedback- they have a website, ArmyNavyDeals .com where the “vintage” stuff is no longer vintage but is half price.
Read the title and description on this one: http://www.etsy.com/listing/55089911/vintage-ww2-european-rucksack
Titled as WW2, which according to the description was during the 1920s and the bag was also used during the Irish Revolution. All certified by a historian nonetheless.
Well, that is the way that Etsy corporate likes its vintage: not as it was, but as it can be sold and resold and resold again, by an imaginary reseller shop.
I wonder how many times this bag-o-crap has been flagged?
I don’t think you can send hand grenades thru the mail even if they are dummies. Can you imagine the mess one of these babies would make if they xrayed the package? They’d have homeland security and the FBI at that post office. The seller is clearly an idiot.
babiesworld is marbled. when will they stop? gee louise, i didn’t promote myself because the treasury bot would remove me but my other shop……. it is fair game
Everyone one of babiesworld treasuries has a marbled bag in it. Hey, etsy…wise up. There’s lots of manipulating going on in the treasuries. Do something NOW!
Awesome. Look at that craftsmenship! HA!
They didn’t have this type of synthetic lace in the 1940s. What a turd.
Where did these photos come from?????
“The only things “made by bang” are TOU violations.”
Nine west shoes can be vintage. If the label is: 9west
Sorry guys, problem fixed, inappropriate listings removed. Thanks to the one kind member here who gave me a heads up.
Just for clarification, since someone so “eloquently” brought it up; the black 40s taffeta dress was given to me by a woman who wore it to a school dance in 1948. The lace is a machine made Chantilly, likely nylon or rayon, both of which were seen on fashions during the 40s. Particularly after WWII when nylon was available again. It has a much more uniform pattern than earlier laces.
So, I’ve made my apologies, admit that I wasn’t thinking when listing, so please refrain from the name-calling.

I had delicious 9 West boots back in the early 80s – my first pair of expensive boots at $210 and they lasted through years of frequent wear – the genius of buying non-trendy!
I had a pair of 9West cowboy boots in the 80s. I wore them constantly in HS with a vintage tuxedo jacket.
