Just found this Chinese fauxtiques shop on Etsy. One of the items was shown in a tiny just-listed thumbnail, and I said WTF and had to click it.
Here’s the shop:
Note the way the antique paintings on paper are tacked to a background for the photos! I took a course on antique Chinese painting at college, which involved weekly trips to the Freer in DC. And a tour of the basement archival storage area for pieces not currently displayed. I can tell ya for sure that antique art is NOT handled this way.
OMG – I just went back and added up the front page features raceytay has had since Jan 1!!!!!! 167 – yes, one hundred sixty seven times she has been on the front page this year thus far!!! 3months
wow….ok, I got nothin’…. except I smell a rat, and there seems to be a whole damn herd of rats on Etsy! WTF????
ECO ETA: All of TeamX gets overexposure. Can the admin picking the treasuries not take the time to look at the tags and when they see “teamx” decide that maybe they don’t need to feature them 10x’s a day and to pick another out of the thousands?
