“Sexy Hair was founded in 1998 by…”

Clueless (1995)


“In 1992, it created a short-lived chain of apparel specialty stores called Everyday Hero with two stores in Minneapolis.[17] They attempted to compete against other apparel specialty stores such as GAP by offering private label apparel such as its Merona brand”





“New York based Dollhouse has been regarded by industry leaders and consumers alike as a leading fashion brand in the juniors market since its first denim jeans hit retail in 1995.”

this is just the easy stuff. I’m tired of flagging to no avail.

    The Sexy Hair clutch is listed as Handmade/Bags and Purses, not Vintage. So that’s a pretty obvious violation right there.

    The CLUELESS VCR tape is listed in Supplies. I am guessing that whatever CLUELESS admin looks at a flag for this will be frozen with bimbo-envy at the photo, and just give it a pass…to avoid being seen as a jealous bitch.

    The yellow espadrilles…WTF? Those aren’t kitten heels. I see wedges!

    The Betsy Johnson stud earrings are listed in Supplies.

    Great callout, great research! This shop needs to be closed, and the seller spanked back to Ebay where she belongs.

    I just finished reading most of this shop’s Profile. This pair has been on Etsy for more than 3 years now as sellers, so they sure as f*^# know the rules for listing.

    Maybe it’s time for Etsy to drop its pretensions about selling vintage and handmade-by-seller items. For all the peeing and moaning in the forums about Asian factory reseller shops, it’s really sellers like this that make Etsy cheap and crappy looking. Personally I’d far rather see shops selling Korean or Chinese cute clothing than someone selling a bunch of thongs as crafting supplies. So creepy.

    The BJ thongs are gone…

  8. Life During Wartime April 25, 2011 at 5:25 pm #

    All of lovepennies items have been disappeared. Here’s a link to their shop for future reference, to see if they reappear?

    And they were the ones I could find after 10 hrs of no sleep.

    She (they) also sold a pair of SJP Bitten shoes.

    “In March 2007, Parker announced the launch of her own fashion line, “Bitten”,[22] in partnership with discount clothing chain Steve & Barry’s.[23] The line, featuring clothing items and accessories under $20, launched on June 7, 2007, exclusively at Steve and Barry’s.[24]”


    And what is “vintage-ish”??


    This seller really got under my skin with her fake vintage/yard sale shit.

    I actually found her on the FP but the folks over at etsy have deleted all traces of that particular front page.

    Must be really embarrassing for you guy, huh etsy?

  10. etsy flea market April 25, 2011 at 9:06 pm #

    And the Clueless VHS tap and Bulldog earrings were both listed as vintage. She must have changed them.

  11. Life During Wartime April 25, 2011 at 9:51 pm #

    Thanks for that info, etsy flea market! I wonder if the thongs were vintage, too, at some point?

  12. etsy flea market April 26, 2011 at 12:15 am #

    the thongs were always supplies. Maybe they can be reconstructed into hats?

    I have a comment awaiting moderation but the ridiculousness of this seller doesn’t end here.

    it’s all gone! it’s almost like etsy’s trying!

  14. Yaya April 26, 2011 at 10:20 am #

    I’ve seen a definite uptick in removals. Sadly, many of the long term resellers who’ve made hundreds of sales and who’ve been reported with pages of links are still up and running.

    I am fairly new to etsy and noticed immediately how many people are importers. All you have to do is read the profiles..they avoid “I made, I worked, I anything”, they may say “handmade” which everything in the world is made by someone! The point is did you make it, or is some person working in a factory often at sub par wages make it.
    I too am tired of flagging. I also am tired of “fake pricing” to get to the top of the pile.
    I have an item that I made that took almost 8 months to make. This is listed for top dollar, now there is an item that is copper wire with blue beads, listed for $100,000. I am frustrated. Really fair pricing? What a joke. This is a runaway train with no conductor.

    ps..there is also someone who is selling a brother sewing machine. i dont make it a point to spend time with these sites, so I am unsure of the name. I flagged it, and never rechecked to see if it was removed. It was the only thing in this guys shop. He had a used sewing machine for around $500. and that was all. try to search for it. along with being a flea market, it is becoming a “craigs list”

  17. pam wolfersberger April 26, 2011 at 10:43 am # last comment. If you care to really look, probably 75% or more of etsy is an import of some kind. I asked about the fairy shoes being made in a color and design I wanted…no could do…why..they are imports! Any hand crafter could use the things they already have to slightly alter a pattern and color. Please look…and read carefully all the profiles before you buy…the clues are all in there. Some are so dishonest they try to even make it difficult for you to discern whether or not a craft person or artist actually makes the items

    Pam, I think your observations are spot on! Many reseller shops say how they ‘love’ handmade or art and want to ‘share’ their items with us, rather than writing about their training, skills, experience, etc etc in their profiles and announcements.

    A huge percentage of shops on Etsy are selling manufactured items now. Of course commercial supplies and 20+ year old items (vintage) are okay to sell according to the Terms Of Use. But when you add to that the number of shops that are listing resale items, vintage, and just used stuff under handmade, the handmade reputation of the site is trashed.

    It was nice to hear from you lovepennies.
    I am glad others have observed what is going on. I myself am considering other avenues for selling at this point. The numbers of manufactured jewelry alone is enough to make me bolt. The pages are full of wedding bands and diamond rings that one can purchase anywhere. Since I have only been on for about three weeks, I am just now discovering what folks like yourself are saying. I am so happy to know that I am not the only person that sees through this farce.

    I get so disheartened when I read the profiles, which I do with every search I make. I am fairly certain my percentages of 75% are frauds is unfortunately close to correct. I am not even considering folks who sell vintage, but once again…who can prove the age of an item. As for supplies….? But for just handmade items, I am more than suspect of most.
    You are correct, they avoid any info about themselves, and the ones that try to deceive let the cat out of the bag by not being able to perform to simplest of alterations to an item, that they do not already offer. This is not asking for custom; I requested a color change of one of the pieces of decorative leather on a pair of shoes.A color that is used in their shoe line. No can do!! I also asked for the change of a color of a felted ball on a little change purse, they couldnt do it even though, again the color exists on another felted change purse. I will continue to ask these questions, just to prove to myself what is going on.
    Is there any recourse other than bolting or being constantly frustrated?

    lovemypennies is back up with non-vintage crap.

    Obviously, the labels have been photoshopped out. What a couple of cunts.

    Right here is the right webpage for anyone who would like to
    understand this topic. You realize so much its almost
    tough to argue with you (not that I personally will need to…HaHa).
    You certainly put a new spin on a subject that has been written about for
    ages. Wonderful stuff, just excellent!
