I know that this person has been called out before, but since she’s still around and apparently has the gall to list more and more impermissible items, I think it’s time to revisit her.
I have flagged this shop: http://www.etsy.com/shop/dorothyprudiefabrics numerous times over the last year. I’ve finally given up. While she does carry fabric in her shop (perfectly fine, of course) she also carries “vintage style” tablecloths, towel sets, chenille blankets, and hankies — all brand new and all manufactured by Moda. Examples:
This isn’t even a close call. This stuff is brand new (she even says in the description of many of these items they are “brand new and in mint condition.” Nice.). It’s cute stuff, darling even, just not even close to being Etsy legal. But of course she has not been closed, despite being repeatedly flagged. To the contrary, she lists more and more of these items in her shop as time goes on. It proves to me that Etsy really doesn’t give a crap. I stopped flagging her shop last month and won’t bother anymore.
Maybe I should get a wholesale license from Moda and add a few of these “vintage style” items to my shop? Sigh.
