Seller states right in the shop description that she sells NEW items!  Dreamsicile deco from Hallmark, and Yankee candle are a couple of brands in her shop marked as VINTAGE :(

She has items like Fitz and Floyd listed, and they’re only 12-14 years old at the most.

Also New with tag items, and listing it as vintage…she even states in her item descriptions that she bought them from the company store and Dept 56 or wherever…
Here’s a couple of examples;
brand new with tags..but she has it listed as vintage? lol

    She’s been on Etsy a while, and has made quite a few sales — all newer items like these. She’s safe. The burden of proof is upon the flagger. With items which are no longer for sale, but way too new to be vintage, it won’t be easy to find documentation for most of them proving age. Of course, most of her items probably have copyright/date marks on them, but I doubt Etsy is gonna maker her show photos of the marks to prove the stuff is vintage.

    She’s safe and will last longer than I will. Her Fitz and Floyd set can be found for much less on Ebay. I bought mine back in 94. Not vintage.

    I just realized how redundant my post was! I’d just woken up, LOL.

    This crap makes me so mad I might need to take a nap with my head resting between faux vintage blow up boobies.

    I remember the boobie towels from some kind of gift catalog in the 90s. Don’t remember which one because I think I was on every mailing list before I got internet in 2000.

    These Halloween molds are not vintage in any shape or form.

    I have the orange one. I bought it about 4 years ago. I think you can still get them at places like Michaels or maybe even Walmart.

    I just saw them at Michael’s.

    Don’t you just love how in the call out threads someone is always super quick to let the OP know that their thread is a callout. Like duh, you think the OP did not know that?! And it was a good callout too since the object/shop in question is now gone. So that’s what it takes to get some action on Etsy.

    YES, and it bothers the crap out me me! Even more so in ETC.

    It’s like..”We are so COOL and Edgy, but we are still clammering for Admin to give us a cookie and pat our heads for a job well done at their finger wagging ”

    Lining up to be first for the “gold star”. *GAG*

    The Admin Hero Worship in ETC is sickening.

    Right, Abby? As if OP didn’t know exactly what she was doing. I can’t stand that, it reminds me of the little kids in my son’s class all running to the teacher to be the first to point out that someone is being naughty.

    We need to call out specific as well as general Etsy staff for publishing that blog article, esp since they rub it in our faces with non-apologies and are leaving the article up,

    I hereby CALL OUT ETSY for mulitiple instances of TOU offenses.
    In particular:
    Juliet
    RobWhite
    name anyone who is on the “editorial” staff. MaryMary has done it by featuring items clearly against TOU as well.

    Maybe its just me but I am seeing a lot of ECO shops in “other items you might like”. Very strange.

  20. jenjasmine October 19, 2010 at 5:59 pm #

    Hahaha, gotta love Miss Eclipse!

    If she ever decides to leave etsy, it will be a sad, sad day.

    lol, this is too funny. an exchange between me and pink from october 25.

    hi!
    this is the first time i’ve ever been to etsy so imagine my surprise at seeing the pillow i sold on ebay back in feb of 2004. i about fell out of my chair, lol!

    i’m not sure if you’re the gal i sold them to, (name removed) in (state removed), yes i looked the item up in my old sales book. she purchased several similar pillows from me, all in the pink family. how cool to see my old work online again; i thought for sure most of those things were in landfills by now.

    i was trying to decide whether to start selling online again and exploring etsy instead of ebay. i was thinking that there wasn’t anything similar to my items appearing in the searches when i saw my own item!

    i’m still on the fence about listing, but i will be watching the activity on the rose francesca pillow closely. oh, and the fabric is 100% dupioni silk. sort of makes it sound swanky ;>
    good luck with the pillow and your store!

    thanks for the blast from the past,
    paula

    Hi Paula,
    I actually couldn’t remember where I got the pillow from as I get so many of my items from estate sales.

    I have someone locally that was wanting to purchase this.

    You should definately start a shop on Etsy…you would love it here!

    Take care….and have a wonderful upcoming holiday season!

    i should follow up by saying that she removed the pillow immediately. i was unaware of the reselling-nonvintage-handmade guidelines on etsy when i started looking around at what was being offered :>

    as a buyer on ebay, pcb was one of my best customers.
