STLvintage, CalistysCreations

19 Mar

This was in an FP treasury page, listed as vintage:
http://www.etsy.com/listing/69464749/vintage-large-enameled-butterfly-moth?ref=fp_treasury_10

It’s not vintage and easily found all over the web in various colors.

I imagine the seller may have left out the word “cicada” from the description in hopes that it might not be caught as easily. I don’t know anything about vintage but even I could tell, just by looking at it, that it was suspicious, and found the duplicates on the web in seconds. I didn’t look at her other items but I would bet most are new junk jewelry.

Another seller touting vintage and stealing photos – reported to Etsy 2 weeks ago and still there. The seller’s “Color Me Happy Vintage Bouquet” for $47.

Here’s the original, from Signals.com http://www.signals.com/cgi-bin/hazel.cgi?action=DETAIL&ITEM=HK2614&websource=rssfeed&source_code=S02RS1 for $24.96. Stolen photo, stolen description, incorrectly marked vintage…way to go CalistysCreations.

    I see a bunch of Chinese import jewelry in STLvintage’s shop. A few of the other pieces may be old, some look like (and are priced like) repops. Oh, and no way does that little critter pin look like a butterfly, WTF?

    CalistysCreations has got amazingly huge gonads to resell something AND use another retailer’s description to boot.

    Two good vintage violation callouts!

    I thought I’d add in for good measure that CalistysCreations is labeling a good many of her creations with “Howlite” components. I found “green howlite”, “green-dyed howlite”, “blue-dyed howlite”, “Vintage Aurora Borealis Howlite”, “sage green turquoise-dyed howlite”…the list goes on.

    Out of all of those “howlite” stones, 90% are really just ceramic beads- and obvious ones, at that. Of the remaining mislabeled pieces, one set was obviously glass beads, and the last 2 were maybe (and with her track record- I stress MAYBE) howlite, (although they could be turquoise or another stone -that I couldn’t say without actually seeing them better). I didn’t look through the rest of her jewelry- but really, how do people get away with such ridiculous mislabeling?

    Passing off ceramic beads as stones? The ONLY “creative” things about Calisty are; her creative labeling of her jewelry… and her grasp on reality.

    Hey Sydney, I see you’ve been slumming in the lower bowels of Etsy.
    Shame on you!
