ebay http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=170543402331&rvr_id=145978555821&crlp=1_263602_263622&UA=WXI6&GUID=f4db59cc12a0a02684e2fdd2ff8201ac&itemid=170543402331&ff4=263602_263622

why buy them “handmade” on Etsy when you can get them on E-bay already in a package and for a few dollar less?

    Why pass on the chance to pay twice as much?

    I don’t think she makes anything in that shop. In other words….she’ll do just fine on etsy.

    Welcome to Etsy Bay!!! Like Ebay but with cheaper fees and more weird crap.

    $5 shipping on an items that weighs 2-3 oz ??? This is an example of someone who either is really stupid or very clever. The new face of etsy!!!

    Yup, looks like eBay.

    Congrats Boots! Yeah – when I contemplate having children, I get scared when I think about all the things I have NO CLUE about – lol. My kids will probably grow up totally wild, ungroomed, uncivilized urchins.

    To the ‘Victorian’ dress from Hong Kong above, ummm. Jeebus Etsy! In finds? Please, you’re fucking with us, right?

    That whole store is a disaster. And that dress looks looks nothing like genuine vintage victorian. I know the Etsy employees are like 15 years old, but JEEZ! Just b/c something has some (probably synthetic) lace on it – does NOT mean it’s Victorian.

    Boots I put socks or booties on my children feet until they were able to walk because their feet got cold while they slept. Congrats to you!

    For the post, if that is handmade I’m Britney Spears

    Congrats Boots! I loved the little leather booties with the elastic on my babies. They stayed on the best. In the summer, my kids had bare feet.

    Speaking of Mary Kay:

    Yes, more than once.

    Baby tube socks are good. Shoes in bed, not so much but socks, yes.

    Awesome news, Boots! I’m sure you will do fine as a Mom because you realize already it’s gonna be a huge learning experience.

    Vintage collectible Avon stuff is on Etsy, as Vintage, and that’s okay. But I think I recall comment call-outs with links to new Avon products in shops.

    About the aptvwt shop with the ‘victornian vintage’ dress:

    — The bodice is made from stretch material according to the description, so it’s probably newer than 20 years old.

    — The listings all claim that the shop owner works as flight crew for an airline to account for any delays. But her policies says she is the store owner, and she has no profile. So if she is always up in the air, there is no way she can handmake anything…just in case Etsy coaches her to change her category from vintage to handmade.

    — All the clothing items I looked at in aptvwt fit the same size, so they are contemporary Asian factory made garments.

    — She has sold the same ‘vintage’ pieces multiple times if you look at her sold items.

    — Her policies say she sells new items (as well as ‘vintage’) including homewares and clothing. She says some of her items are ‘deadstock’. She offers wholesale discounts for mass purchases. I think she resells factory overstocks of contemporary Asian clothing.

    — aptvwt is a self described shop owner, not a crafter or a designer. So she isn’t protected by Etsy’s factory/collective policy. aptvwt is a long term reseller on Etsy.

    Anyone else notice the tag stuffer in the Etsy Promotion Lessons From the Stars email today? That’s the secret to success…..cheat.

  24. madmomma October 12, 2010 at 3:37 pm #

    Nice detective work Yuk! I also figured those curvy dresses were not hand made by the seller- but I couldn’t find anything on them. Well done!

    and on the seller aptvwt – all of that stuff is so NOT vintage… what the hell is wrong with Etsy? and Love how the seller says “WE agree it was probably never worn” – what a-holes, of course it hasn;t been worn, because it is effing new.

    ya the etsy finds often features seller VintageChase who title stuffs like no other!

  26. LoveAndRage October 12, 2010 at 4:29 pm #

    Off Topic-
    but -is there a spike in posters here because the forums are so damn boring?

    Just wondering.

  27. sick of cupcakes October 12, 2010 at 5:13 pm #

    I steer clear of the forums. Too icky.

  28. jenjasmine October 12, 2010 at 6:12 pm #

    I’m muted for calling out, haha, so I can’t post in the forums.

  29. freckleyredhead October 13, 2010 at 5:02 am #

    Ooooooh inspector – thanks for the link to that curvy girl clothing site . . . cuuuuuuuuuuute clothes there!

    SO HA fake Etsy seller, I’m buyin’ – but not from you!!!!!

    And yeah, the forums have been a snooze fest lately!

  30. Inspector Yuk October 13, 2010 at 10:39 am #

    Yeah, I’m liking curvy girl myself, being all curvy and suchlike. I got my eyeball on a thing or two.

    And the reason the forums are so crappy on Etsy is because everyone is on the forums on Artfire asking questions and setting up their new pro shops. Hehe.

    the sellers over there actually welcome and support newbies, not bash them and make fun of them. Even when the newbies make asses of themselves (and a few etsy refugees have tried to start the same kind of drama on artfire) they are met with understanding and support, rather than the drama feeding frenzy you find on Etsy.

  31. RealDeal October 13, 2010 at 11:24 am #

    Another reason: The Large Group of Permanently Muted Truth-Tellers.

  32. WangFu October 16, 2010 at 2:32 pm #

    Another muted seller here too.

  33. PussDaddy October 16, 2010 at 7:11 pm #

    This is the kind of stuff that pisses me off most. Because there are people who DO make stuff like this themselves.

    the baby cribs should be as protected as possible and it should have additiona safety features *:~
