Here’s the Christmas self-callout. http://www.etsy.com/forums_thread.php?thread_id=6725966

Giving this it’s own post….so far the comments have been:

The thread has been closed, but I dunno if the shop will be.

Had to laugh at the notion this seller never read the Etsy TOUs and other site info. Aw c’mon, cupcakettes! The boilerplate in the shop shows that they have studied Etsy carefully before setting up. An ignorant reseller wouldn’t bother typing in all that bilge about ‘handmade’.
——————————————————————————————————-

LOL at that thread. Love how loosewire closes it by trying to say that flagging is the “most effective and efficient means.”

I call BS!!!
——————————————————————————————————-
Yup, BS and nothing but. Another violating shop called themselves out a bit later, and admin blew it off the site as well as closing the thread. They deleted the second reseller because it was some kind of precious metals and coin dealer (guessing from context because all links go to the UH OH page) with no possible fit for Etsy. Calling out in the forums works best, if the shop isn’t going to be coached and coddled by Etsy. Obviously, Etsy admin would like to keep NaturalBamboo around as a pet.
——————————————————————————————————-
NaturalBamboo has rewritten their announcement and bio. Coached, I’m sure.

Here’s the bio from 12-25.

    Reseller found on the FP:

    http://www.etsy.com/shop/greenduckweed?ref=pr_shop

    Shop has woodworking, jewelry, children’s clothing, fiber crafts, metal work, and supplies. WARNING: POLITICALLY INCORRECT COMMENT English seems to be their second language. Looks like import shop to me.

    Here are the sold items from reseller greenduckweed’s second shop:

    http://www.etsy.com/shop/baskets8899/sold

    Currently they have only 3 items for sale. I wonder if Etsy coached them into giving up selling Asian import baskets after they got tons of flags when Etsy put them in Dorque features? It looks like greenduckweed has been on the FP 4 times, including one curated by Etsy. Etsy — your place to buy everything made in China!

    Funny thread:

    http://www.etsy.com/forums_thread.php?thread_id=6726563&page=1

    It’s so sad how most of the buyers and sellers are blind as bats when it comes to spotting resellers.

    Here’s the Treasury that made it to the FP for the call-out:

    http://www.etsy.com/treasury/4d0d1de227d38eef446b067b/nostagic-story?ref=pr_treasury

    I think the treasury curator should get ECO points for including a reseller item in her collection, complete with a watermarked photo and a ship from address in China.

    Another reseller on the FP:

    http://www.etsy.com/listing/59256107/papas-old-america-chalkboard-recyle-bins

    Uses photo of item from vivaterra.com, where it is no longer available. But there are still links to the item with the photo visible, such as the one here:

    http://simplystated.realsimple.com/simplystated/2009/06/7-cool-chalkboardinspired-finds.html

    Shop has sold quite a few of them.

    Oh, and my shout out to the treasury it was in and the curator:

    http://www.etsy.com/treasury/4d0d1c1d07306d910f589c70/im-obsessedwith-taste-test?ref=fp_treasury_curator

    This is the second treasury by this curator I’ve seen on the FP today, and BOTH included resellers! Way to go….

    Metal drawer, deer in picture unrelated to item, bad photographic print…she was a shoe-in for the fp.

    This shop is on the front page right now. I’m only sort of good at picking out resellers, (most of my knowledge comes from what I’ve learned here). What do you all think?

    This one has me curious. “All our wares are sourced from the underground” ??? Lots of “we” comments, but no mention of a collective or other parties involved.

    —— they were on my list to look into, and i couldn’t find anything to prove they were re-sellers, a lot of the pieces look one of a kind and handmade (i say they are ok until proven otherwise, but would’t worry too much about them)

    Yet another fp reseller:

    karen’s dream home –
    everything in that store comes from various stores on taobao…

    This shop is on my list of shops I want to see closed – SOON!

    totally a reseller that needs to be shut down ASAP. less than 2 months selling and already 30 sales. It took me two YEARS to get that many sales.

    Not even sure where to start looking to find their source.

    – are that so lazy that they cannot manage to take a photo of it on their own? well then again- what is nice about people using product photos from the source is that they are easier to pick out. so I thank this seller for giving us a chance to see the truth.
    it really irritates me when they are nearly neighbors of mine (living only a hundresd miles away) how embarassing.

    flag away.
