    no idea why the person has the same item in 2 different shops. It is against the rules.

    Handmade? Even though the shop is in the US, it reads like imported reselling. http://www.etsy.com/shop/FryShopping

    Polestar on the FP ftw! She’s only had 255 features (as of 4:30-ish EST). Poor thing.

    AND now it’s ThePeachTree’s treasury on the FP.

    Fuck the front page. I never look, never did, and never will.

    PT’s list was new shops, and I do respect that. No buddies were included that I could tell.

    yes we are watching.

    This one has been called out before. Etsy has probably helped them reword it all because there is now a lot of noise about their “team” and “handmade” and all that horse shit.

    Those wire winders are cute! They don’t belong on Etsy, though 😦 Also, $5 for a little piece of rubber with $12 shipping? That would send me running for the hills.

    in fact, all their rings are listed by ‘item number’ from that wholesale site 😦

    Well let’s see. I surf around the net for other people’s work that I like, I steal it and then I profit.

    It’s too bad she steals other peoples’ works. She is actually pretty talented and has good design sense. All she needs to do is to learn to take her own photographs.

  12. The Unknown Etsian November 20, 2010 at 5:31 am #

    At some point, she will be sued. Then we will see where she gets her “inspiration”.

  13. JK November 20, 2010 at 1:16 pm #

    My complete respect to anyone with the nerve to point out some of the places she find her ‘inspiration’! I’d do it, but I’m in the middle of researching a massive haul of vintage jewelry and it is so sweet that I can’t bring myself to be as biting as usual.

  14. kitten November 20, 2010 at 4:55 pm #

    I like what quirke said in that thread…

    “I am often inspired by other people’s beautiful photos and artwork.

    I don’t use them in my own artwork, of course, that would be intellectual property infringement.”

    Wish someone would call out ImagineStudio. Anybody got a sock account they can direct people to her Call Out page? lol
    I hate that most people in those threads don’t know she is hack.

    Well Thomas, are all Chinese as professional, courteous, and as intelligent as you? If so, your country is in trouble.

    Seems like you have an inferiority complex with respect to the US! lol. You need to take your little bitty 小弟弟, and go cry to your Mum that a US company won’t let you break their rules! Boo hoo”

    Dear every one, Do you know what “小弟弟” means in Chinese Slang? here I translate it into English :”Penis”
    Dear every one, Do you know what “肏你祖宗十八代” means in Chinese? Here I translate it into English: ” Fuck you 18 generations of your family”

    Dear every one, please read this blog from the beginning, Did I commented detroit in a unfriendly way initially before he made the first insulting comment about me?

    detroit and etsycallout:

    We are a registered company in China, We have registered business number, office address, contact number even my Chinese name in my website.
    We are responsible for what We say and We do.
    But I have to ask:
    etsycallout, detroit,
    Who are you? what is your identification? what is your true name?
    Who autherized you to use “etsy”‘s name to publish blogs about etsy sellers?
    Who give you rights to accuse etsy sellers?
    Who give you rights to judge etsy sellers with your own “rules”
    furthermore, do you have any certificates of distincting ” true handmade items” from ” fake handmade items” issued by any official or folk institutes in US or in any other countries?

    Esty’s statement do testify that “estycallout” has nothing do with esty company and etsy website, nevertheless, etsy also apologized to us for your harrassment caused to us .

    Etsy closed our store as we requested today, We abide by Etsy’s rules, no matter whether it’s decision is correct or wrong.
    We respected etsy’s decision.

    but for you guys,
    detroit and etsycallout,
    I am sure You are illegal!
    If you are legal, why don’t you guys don’t publish your names,identifications? why only use your anonymous web names?

    Why don’t guys make statements on your blog like this:”
    We are XXX and XXX, this is a personal blog, which has nothing to do with etsy website and etsy company, We we publish is our personal comments, We are not liable for liability of infringement of laws and privacy, We are not responsible for any insulting and harrassments to anybody!”

    Dear all,
    So, If you etsycallout guys can’t testify you are not illegal.
    You guys not only infringes Etsy’s intellectual property rights by ” use “Etsy” word on your “Etsycallout ” blog, You guys also infringes other sellers’s privacy and rights.
    Besides, Did any customers authorized you guys to make gossips on any sellers? No.

    My conclusion:
    Neither Etsy, nor any official insistitues, nor any customers authrozied you to do this illegal gossip job,
    So, What you guys are doing now is doing evil and committing crimes!
    Did you guys realized it?

    I can bet someday, if you guys publish your identifications, Etsy company, any honest seller sure will sue you guys on US courts and get you guys punlished by US laws to get justice for the Etsy users both sellers and buyers.

    Dear all,
    I am wondering why etsycallout guys are so angry about us and other sellers on etsy and make rumours around.
    Here is my answer after considerable thinking and investigation:
    1. these etsycallout guys are the true resellers and sellers of fake handmade items on etsy. I read many of their comments on their blogs, they are also etsy sellers. they are in US.
    So, why they are so afraid of sellers in China and other countries out of China?
    as everyone knows:
    handmade items or vintage items made in China and other developing countries are much cheaper than in US, actually now nowadays,there are very few handmade items and vintage items are made in US, because of very high cost of human labor.

    So these guys purchased many items on Alibaba and Tao and other websites, which are made in China, and then list them on etsy to cheat customers they handmade those items.

    But the true makers of the those items find this way to sell they items on etsy. and flood in to sell their own handmade items.

    So, this becomes the disaster and nighmares of these etsycallout guys, because direct sellers in China and other countries compete direclty with these etsycallout guys, these etsycallout guys will surely be defeated, and lose their business.
    So they find wordpress, this free and anonymous blog to attack the real sellers on etsy. at the same time, in case that they will be caught and prosecuted by laws for their crimes, they hide their names and identifications.

    detroit:
    You bitch cheater, criminal, real reseller,
    why you are so angry with me?
    Why you don’t dare to use English to insult me, instead using ” Chinese”?

    Now I found reasons:
    1. You surely are a Chinese American , if you are an American citizen, You probably are one of Stowaways without Ameican ID.
    So you even know the worst slang of cursing in Chinese.

    2. You puchased huge lots of items in Alibaba and Taobao and sell them on etsy, So you are very familar with items on those websites, once a true sellers comes on etsy, you found them and start to blogging , commenting and cursing them.

    3. if you are such a Amerian with your Ancestor in China, I am sure every Chinese will whip you this stupid pig, and every Good Chinese man feel shamed of you.

    4.Besides you, there are some other active etsycallout guys seems to be Chinese origin.

    Why you guys don’t feel shamed what you are doing now?
    Why We can’t call you guys criminals and bitches after you shit guys insulted me, even we initially are very polite to you?

    5. The last words, I give you these guys:

    Get fuck off Etsy and your damned Etsycallout!!!! don’t destroy Chinese’s reputation and etsy’s reputation !!
    otherwise, every honest and brave Chinese and American will fuck you off!!!

  16. The Unknown Etsian November 21, 2010 at 7:48 am #

    Hey Thomas,
    1.If you are a “company” in China, you are considered a “manufacturer” here. That means that your products are not handmade, they are factory goods. People who sell factory goods on Etsy are called resellers. Thank you for clarifying what you are for us.
    2. I know that you communists do not have what we have here which is called “Freedom of speech”. Its actually guaranteed by our government. That means if what we say is true or mostly true, we can pretty much say what we want, when we want. Unlike a communist regime that must control all the actions and deeds of its own citizens. This means we can critique you as much as we want considering that you have identified yourself as a law reseller who did not play by Etsy’s rules. And Americans are very big on playing by the rules.
    3. You are the one destroying China’s “reputation”. Or maybe you are adding to it. While Chinese people on a one to one basis, seem to be very good people, the country as a whole has a reputation for shortcuts when making items that poison people and animals, shoddy workmanship, copyright theft, intellectual theft etc. If you would like China to succeed, perhaps you should be honorable in your dealings with people and not resell on a handmade site (for a start).
    4. After reading all your fantastic conclusions, I think you would do well to take some classes in logic and ethics because you seem to be lacking in these areas.
    5. We have an old saying here in America. BLOW IT OUT YOUR ASS.
