One of the WORST things I’ve ever seen on Etsy:
This shop goes on “vacation” after getting tons negative feedback. Basically customers are complaining about never receiving their purchases and needing to file PayPal claims.
Of course we get the “I’m sick” old standby in the announcement. Boo hoo, poor thing. That really sucks. Maybe you should have put your shop on vacation mode as soon as you realized you wouldn’t be able to keep up. But do you? NOOOOOOOOOOOOO! You keep trucking along, all the while knowing you won’t be filling the orders you are receiving.
What’s a girl to do? Does she do her best to catch up on orders and take care of her customers? Oh hell no! Instead she opens a NEW shop: http://www.etsy.com/shop/DearestClementine
Check out the photos in these two listings:
The first is from SparklePeach and the second is from DearestClementine. Here’s where the sneaky part comes in. She takes the time to change the thumbnail photo and the wording in each listing, but is too lazy to retake all the photos. So in effect, busts herself. How sad is that? Deliberately not disclosing her other shops, when she full well knows she should be (she disclosed a supply shop on SparklePeach) is beyond deceitful.
I’m sure her customers would be interested to know that she’s too sick and busy to take care of orders she’s already been paid for, but isn’t too sick or busy to create an entirely new shop and take brand new orders.
Classic Etsy. How are they unaware of this? Yes, I realize I’m beating my head against a brick wall, but I just had to post this here.
