Azuretreasures

28 Dec

I’m just sick because I stumbled across the fact that I believe a long-time Etsy seller may be a reseller. Azuretreasures http://www.etsy.com/shop/AzureTreasures sure has a lot of stuff that is exactly like Happy Jewelry Manufactory. As a matter of fact, the photos are exactly the same. So somebody is stealing photos from somebody else.

This from azuretreasures: http://www.etsy.com/listing/63799596/filigree-moon-and-crystal-heart-necklace?ga_search_query=moon&ga_search_type=user_shop_ttt_id_5366593

Is exactly like this: http://happyjewelry.en.alibaba.com/product/265855332-209602717/Swarovski_Jewelry_Swarovski_pendant_Swarovski_necklace.html

This: http://www.etsy.com/listing/51403257/swarovski-bordeaux-crystal-heart?ga_search_query=sparrow%2Bheart&ga_search_type=user_shop_ttt_id_5366593

Is exactly like this: http://happyjewelry.en.alibaba.com/product/265904931-209602717/Swarovski_necklace_Swarovski_pendant_fashion_jewelry.html

This from AT: http://www.etsy.com/listing/64706082/victorian-sparrow-pearl-necklace-and?ga_search_query=sparrow%2Bpearl&ga_search_type=user_shop_ttt_id_5366593

Is exactly like this: http://happyjewelry.en.alibaba.com/product/265956212-209602717/swarovski_jewelry_set_fashion_jewelry_set_Swarovski_jewelry.html

Actually pretty much every photo from Azuretreasures and Happy Jewelry is exactly the same. So someone is stealing photos from someone else.

Every…single… item … with the exception of some of the knotted pearl necklaces.   Maybe.

    The links work fine for me and that is really sad that almost her entire shop seems to be from a wholeseller in China. With over 2000 in sales, I can’t believe no one has caught this before. Sad.

    Does it look like her “daughter’s” shop is also all reselling?

    At least they took the time to take the watermark off “insert sarcasm here”

  4. lynn December 28, 2010 at 11:54 am #

    Her profile says she enjoys handknotting pearls yet there is not one strand of knotted pearls here – unless I’ve completely overlooked one. It’s this sort of thing that makes me feel like a schmuck for trying to sell ANYTHING handmade on etsy.

    I doubt that the mass manufacturers stole designs from this shop so they could reproduce them in quantity. And stole her photos as well.

    Etsy can’t shut down shops like this (including her daughter’s shop, too) because the sellers can claim to do as little as attach ear wires or hang one crystal heart on a chain and — voila! — it’s handmade a la Etsy.

    Either way, the ‘victorian’ and ‘vintage’ references crack me up! This look is contemporary.

  7. Life During Wartime December 28, 2010 at 1:54 pm #

    Here’s another seller with an almost identical product (the earring findings are different).

    http://vivianfeilerdesigns.com/product_info.php?products_id=301&osCsid=191743c4f5db2d1d86e35ca379e876bc

    Could be they are both purchasing the filigree wrapped bermuda blue swarovski pendants and adding the earring findings? I noticed the finding attaching the necklace pendant in both shops looks the same.

    Unbelievably Etsy seems to have suspended the listings for this shop and now they are open and making sales (a blatant jewelry reseller) on Artfire if anyone cares to flag products to get them off!!

    I actually have 2 posts that are callouts on this seller that are pending moderation on the About comments page. That person has 3 shops on Etsy, with each of them favorited, and a good majority of the items are resell items.

    The one associated the most is instyleboutique, and it has several items that are from Alibaba. I don’t want to repeat the information here if ECO moderates the comments.

    Just seen on the Etsy FP:

    http://www.etsy.com/listing/58133780/the-worlds-greatest-electric-motor?ref=fp_treasury_7

    WTF? Isn’t this item a motor vehicle? The website mentioned in the item description (and it’s a site for sales inquiries) says its speed is limited by a special device to conform with CA law. Did the shop owner make it, or anything in the shop?

  11. Life During Wartime December 28, 2010 at 2:22 pm #

    SilverPath’s items (AF studio) look like Thai import jewelry to me.

    The resellers are on Artfire, too. They even out themselves in their listing:

    Has this website listed right in it: http://www.fashionjewelryforeveryone.com/Under5Static/UNS051.html

    I swear, stuff like this makes me just want to give up. Nothing like busting your rear to try to come up with something only to have someone put cheap crap on there that you can’t possibly compete with.

  15. Lu December 28, 2010 at 5:56 pm #

    I’ve flagged the artfire resellers, of course I can’t promise anything, but if I read of resellers call outs with proof I will do my best!

  16. done with Etsy December 28, 2010 at 6:17 pm #

    Try asking the seller if they can make it with a different kind of bead. Like say, the one in the pendant blue and one red and one black. Throw these sellers a curve ball.

    Hell create a sock and go to town, just remember to not use your Etsy IP address -computer- for your sock puppet accounts.

    Bombard these a$$ holes with a million questions, or a million and one. Ask them about multiple orders. What about bulk orders? If Etsy won’t get rid of them maybe we can pester them till they just pack up and leave.

    I am really sick of people getting scammed by resellers and I know people are flagging and reporting these shops why won’t Etsy stand up and protect the buyers?

    I am more than happy to buy the cheapest item in these shops, get the item and then leave feedback about the item not being handmade.

    Call up some blog that has $ to blow and get them to buy stuff from these shops and reposrt on their findings.
    Anything. I no longer have any faith in Etsy.

    Amused…. they have their pieces in the “Design” category, not handmade, so they are legal, unfortunately!

  22. Cat Power December 28, 2010 at 9:26 pm #

    However the fashionjewelryforeveryone is in the handmade category, and definitely not handmade by the seller, in my opinion. Going back to see what else they have.

  23. Dee December 29, 2010 at 6:55 am #

    interesting that the mass producers make stuff that seems so etsy-ish.

    interesting that Lucinda posts in business topics about her mothers passing and asks that it not be moved to etc. My heart goes out to her for her loss, and in the same breathe wonders about her posting in the business section. It leaves an icky taste in my mouth.

  24. Artfire Seller December 29, 2010 at 7:09 am #

    Excuse me…. fashionjewelryforeveryone.com. Got to make sure I get the name right. 😉

  25. Life During Wartime December 29, 2010 at 12:22 pm #

    The reason mass-produced items fit the Etsy style so well is simple:
    the Etsy marketing trend reports are lists of themes and concepts being pushed by the homeware, giftware, and jewelry industries.

    When those little lists appear monthly in the Storque, you are seeing info that the manufacturing sector received many months ago to get their production on track.

    There are dozens of very successful and visible shops on Etsy that resell mass-produced homeware, giftware — and of course jewelry, the topic of this particular call-out — listing in either Handmade or Vintage categories. These items have professional photos, get included in lots of treasuries, and wind up many times on the front page.

    I mean, search the web for owl items, antler items, cast iron, stuff made in China from ‘recycled wood’, ‘rustic’ giftware and decor, wall decals, new vintage style letterpress blocks, mason jars, wire baskets….anything on the Etsy trends list…and you will see similar or identical items for sale made by mass-manufacturers, during the same time frame they are ‘hot’ on Etsy. If an Etsy shop claims to be ‘shabby chic’ there’s an even chance that shop is reselling at least some of their inventory or violating the TOU in some significant way. Ditto for ‘Paris’ or ‘French’.

    Taking jewelry as an example, the biggest volume jewelry sellers on Etsy don’t design and fabricate their own components/findings. These come from China. The jewelry assembler shops that do big volume sales on Etsy purchase supplies in quantities from off-shore manufacturers. I have no doubt at least some of them subscribe to the same industry trend forecasts that Etsy and its investors do.

    Once you stop thinking of Etsy as simply a nurturing environment for the individual artist or artisan, and see the site as the world’s largest online shopping mall for young females, Etsy’s unwritten policy changes (like allowing resellers) make more sense.

    Wow, just STFU, Dee. Her mom died.

  28. JK December 30, 2010 at 10:07 am #

    WJW, it’s tragic that her mom died but that really isn’t the place for her to air her grief.

  29. hagwithmorals December 30, 2010 at 5:25 pm #

    I’ve got to agree about Lucinda. If I was truly grieving, the forums on Etsy would probably be the last place I’d go. I’ve seen lots of people discuss losing a loved one there but they certainly don’t post about it in business topics. I’m truly sorry Lucinda has lost her mother but I still find her (Lucinda) to be an attention whore.

    I’m not basing my opinion so much on the thread about her mother as I am all the preposterous, grandiose ideas she’s posted about in the past and then never follows through on or mentions again. Like the time she said she was going to spend every spare moment listing new items in her shop so she could have 5000 items by the end of the month and put a challenge out there for others to do the same thing. When someone pointed out what her Etsy bill was going to end up being for the month, she totally disappeared from the thread.

    She constantly pulls this shit and tells everyone she’ll report on her “progress” regarding whatever stupid idea she’s posted about but then she never comes back to the thread. I pretty much ignore everything she posts now.

  30. em December 30, 2010 at 6:03 pm #

    you raise a good point, hagwithmorals. I noticed that she tends to post and run a lot.. but pretty much every post in the forums is a thinly veiled promo, or at least it seems. I don’t even know why I bother going there any more.

  31. hagwithmorals December 30, 2010 at 7:15 pm #

    agree! Business topics is full of promos. I rarely post or even visit the forums now.

  32. ananemone December 30, 2010 at 11:12 pm #

    I never (hardly ever) think of posts outside of Promos as promos; I guess I just can’t imagine it as an effective marketing tool for time spent, nor do I buy from the forums, particularly.

    I think Lucinda was posting honestly; she may be a bit of an attention-seeker but I don’t see her as dishonest or wheedling or whatever.

  33. ananemone December 30, 2010 at 11:13 pm #

    Plus her mom died, which sucks, and she spends enough time on the forums to feel connected to people, which is fair enough.

  34. kitten December 31, 2010 at 10:07 am #

    I thought it was odd post to put in Business. I’m very sorry her mom died, but now will EVERY seller/buyer be allowed to post about their tragedy in Business or which ever forum they spend the most time? It’s not like anyone wouldn’t of found her post in ETC., as her friends were posting in other forums and unrelated topics alerting everyone to her mom passing.

    I think Rob did a great job in commenting and moving it when he did – if he would of moved it right away, he would of been bashed by that group for another month. Most other forum users wouldn’t of been handled with kid gloves.

    My heart goes out to her and it’s a shame that even announcing her mother’s death was turned into a big hoopla by her, another one of her give me preferential treatment (but I’ll still bash you Etsy every chance I get, once my grief subsides).

  35. madmomma December 31, 2010 at 10:16 pm #

    It bums me out to see people so quick to jump all over someone for posting about her mom’s death in the business section (and all of the other comments made).

    Death can really mess a person up. Take it from a person who lost 13 loved ones in less than 10 years. I handled each death differently.
    When my ex-boyfriend died, his mother went off and spend money on getting her nails and hair done, and it looked like she wasn’t all that torn up over his death… (she was, she just didn’t know how to deal with it- and yeah it was weird)
    Point is everyone grieves differently. It isn’t fair to judge someone on their behavior at the time of a major loss.
    Unless you have been there, and even if you HAVE been there, you don’t know what is going on in the other persons head.

    I am not going to tell you how to behave, but take a minute to consider that everyone deals differently.

    While I am on the subject… I just wanted to say that I haven’t been here in a while due to comments like those above. I am all about calling out resellers, but (and I know snicker and call me whatever you want) I just don’t get the mean talk.

    Yeah, some sellers make some really BAD mistakes and make bad choices and I may not like the way certain people act or behave in the forums, and I will admit that I have jumped on the bash bandwagon a few times, but I always try to remember what it feels like to be the other person and I really do regret not considering that before opening my mouth

    same stuff happens over in the forums on E. dialog and open dicourse are great, disagreements are fine, but getting nasty- not needed. I am not sure what is going on but it feels like a LOT of cliques are popping up and people are all of the sudden taking sides??? why the inter Etsy tiffs? aren’t we all there for the same reason to SELL stuff? I think ALL of us are more alike than different, we just don’t “see” the common ground amongst us all.

    i’l be back. you know this place is like my second home… : )
    off the soap box and open for punches.

  36. Dee January 1, 2011 at 4:06 pm #

    You are right, my apologies, people do show their grief in different ways. I lost my mother in 2010 and handled my feelings in a much different manner. It just struck me as strange and shame on me for being so judgmental.

    No one needs to throw any punches. I hope 2011 is a much better year for all the deserving (nno re-seller) etsy buyers and sellers.

  37. PussDaddy January 1, 2011 at 6:36 pm #

    I am very sorry about Lucinda’s mother. Everyone has a mother, and some of us have lost ours, so we can relate, and yes I am sorry about it. You should be expecting a nastygram from her shortly tho because you blogged about her with her having a fit because you mentioned her name. Don’t ask me how I know this.
    Regardless-love her, like her, hate her, her or anyone else, we can all pretty much relate to death in some way, and I figure it’s not that big a deal to make a major fuss about because in a year who will even remember she made that thread anyway? Oh wait, WTF and am I talking about here-it’s Etsy-of course they will remember it. And who made it, when, what day, what time, how long the thread was, who expressed condolences and who said go get screwed, who moved the thread and when and why, what was the OP’s reaction to it…….you get the picture. They will probably remember every scintilla of the thread except what her mother died from or where or how old she was or anything else-because that shit isn’t important to anyone-and where threads are started is-fucked up priorities and blah blah blah and all that bloody rot.

    As far as the mass produced handmade crap is concerned-I am sick of it myself and am pretty much going to stop buying handmade except from people I have already dealt with and who I trust to be making their own stuff. I figure you can be a part of the problem (by buying handmade) or a part of the solution (by not buying it). One takes effort, the other doesn’t, so it’s not that hard to figure out which one is easiest to choose.
    Fuck a bunch of cupcakes hunting all over the internet to make sure what they buy is legit-stop buying the shit and you don’t have to worry about it. You can’t get any simpler or easier than that. Because no one owes any of these people the time it takes to research this shit, not even cupcakes.

  38. madmomma January 1, 2011 at 7:48 pm #

    Dee, I am sorry to hear about your loss also…

    Wishing everyone a happy new year!
    Keep up the good work and stay positive , may this year bring about good things for all!

  39. PussDaddy January 2, 2011 at 1:08 am #

    I mean let me clarify what I said earlier-you sellers talk as if it is buyers, or cupcakes is what I think you call them, who are mostly responsible for the quagmire that Etsy and handmade is in. Buyers and cupcakes are supposed to conscientiously research everything they buy before buying it to make sure it is handmade kosher and google it to death and background check it and blah blah blah. I believe it was said before that it is because buyers keep buying it which is the reason reseller crap exists on these sites. Buyers and cupcakes should do a better job of buying. By buying the buyers and cupcakes support the venue that has this crap listed for sale and so mostly are responsible for it’s existence.

    So, WTF exactly does that make you sellers who keep listing your stuff on these sites even tho you know this reseller crap is sold there? Are you marble cakes that have lost your fucking marbles? Because don’t you support the venue that has this crap listed too? I mean you can go on and on about how you are trying to make a living and feed your family and blah blah blah, but in reality the have-nots far outnumber the have’s in the making a living department selling handmade on Etsy and most anywhere else. Most don’t make anywhere near enough to support a family (search the numerous “quit your day job is a farce” complaints), so that arguement as a reason to keep listing and being there doesn’t hold a lot of water IMHO. No, you keep on listing and supporting the venue because you want to be there regardless of the reseller crap and then go rant and rave on blogs while using fake names about buyers and cupcakes who don’t know how to buy. You do this because it makes you feel better-in your mind blaming someone else, anyone else, relieves you of some of your own responsibility for being there listing right next to the reseller stuff. If it means that much to you then use your real names is the way I see it so people take your complaints seriously, and take some responsibility yourselves for continueing to list and sell and support venues that have reseller crap for sale, because you too are a part of the problem as long as you continue to do this, just as much as buyers and cupcakes who buy it. Don’t you think? Why should buyers care more and spend lots of times conscientsiosly researching stuff they want to buy if you sellers ignore that it is there and continue to list and sell as if it doesn’t bother you-why should it bother buyers or cupcakes anymore than it bothers you sellers? It shouldn’t. Just by virtue of you using fake names so that no one recognizes you so what you say isn’t held against you and jeapardize your shops is proof already that you care more about listing really than you do this reseller bullshit , so why the fuck should anyone else care any more than you yourselves do?

    However, at least one person has made comments here and at Etsy basically outing themselves about how they think Etsy should make a reseller category and be done with it. I’m not saying the person is right or wrong, only that they did somewhat jeapardize their own shop-life by making statements that could be traced back to them if anyone cared to take the time to do it. No, they didn’t use their real name, but at least they took an unpopular view and voiced it, and someone could figure it out, so at least you have to respect that person for doing that even if you don’t agree.

    I still say it is simpler for the buyer cupcakes to solve your problems just by refusing to buy. You take the easy way out bitching anonmously as sellers, so why shouldn’t buyers take the easy way out as well and just not buy it? That seems pretty fair to me.

  40. Abby January 2, 2011 at 2:58 pm #

    If my mom died a few hours ago the last place I would be is Etsy forums, asking admin not to move it so that as many people as possible could see it. To me it makes me look at the seller in a light less than admirable. But to each their own. Some people treat Etsy as if the people there are an extended family. Some literally live in the forums.

    The cliques are sickening. Everyone tripping over the other to gang up on someone, or support this person or that person. Everyone using those silly duck avatars. Yeah, we get it already. Really, its getting old.

    Oh well, everyone needs someone to admire, I guess, even if it’s a fake ass set of sparkly lips or fake fucktarded duck on the internet..

    PLEASE BE AWARE THAT THIS FOREIGN WEBSITE IS STEALING PICTURES!

    Etsy investigated me and I had to prove step by step processes of me making my jewelry! I HAVE BEEN CLEARED!!!

    ETSY informed me that many sellers are having their pictures and designs stolen from this site!
    BEWARE! YOU MAY BE NEXT!

    I have worked very hard this last 3 years to build my shop up and to try and be an Etsy success and to have Etsy shut me down (temporarily) RIPPED MY HEART OUT!

    I am a wife and mother of 3 children. I live in Alabaster,AL a suburb of Birmingham.
    My shop is in my kitchen on my kitchen table – that we can no longer eat on!

    Please be careful before calling others out. They may have had their pictures and designs stolen as well!

    Please feel free to convo me via Etsy if you are in the Birmingham, AL area and would like to visit my kitchen jewelry making shop! I welcome you!

    Check out some of the pictures on Alibab. Some pictures they have stolen still have the original owners watermark on their pictures, that Alibaba didn’t care, they used them anyway! THIS FOREIGN WEBSITE IS RUTHLESS!

    WAKE UP PEOPLE!!!
    Alibaba is a foreign website that is stealing pictures and designs on Etsy!
    You have falsely accused my shop and my daughters because you found my pictures on a China website.

    FALSE ACCUSATIONS!

    How cruel and hurtful can you be? What comes around goes around!
    Alibaba may post YOUR PICTURES next!
    You’ll have loads of fun proving to Etsy that you are authentic!

    *To the person that posted that I have no hand knotted necklaces, did you look?
    No, I don’t think so! I have around ten and guess what? I can size them, change details,color of pearls or whatever you like to have changed!

    *To the person who suggested bUy my cheapest item and then leave me negative feedback! —
    WHAT KIND OF PERSON ARE YOU?

    STOP THE WITCH HUNT!!! Before you accuse make sure you have more creditable proof than ALIBABA!

    I just checked my shop and I have 13 hand knotted necklaces on Etsy. My very first sale was for a hand knotted necklace!

    OVER 2000 SALES!!!
    THAT’S RIGHT and I hand made every single item myself. I worked very hard to make my shop successful and because a few of you are jealous, you are trying to take away everything I have worked so hard to achieve.
