Just saw this shop on the Etsy front page
with this item
and guessed that the handmade lamp would be listed as a fauxtique in Vintage — and I was right!
The shop is full of new items made from vintage bits and pieces, as well as reproductions. All self called out in the descriptions with words like “vintage style” “reproduction” and “one of a kind” but listed as Vintage.
FleaMarketHoax also lists comercially produced postcards as Handmade Paper:
Notice the ripoff of the publisher’s description of this item on their own site in FleaMarketHoax’s description:
They are listing copy/prints of the graphic work of other artists under Handmade Art. Do they have permission/license to make and sell these?
“Purchased early 1990s” clothing item
might be vintage if it is pre-1992, otherwise not.
Shop full of issues sailed thru the Etsy admin vetting process and onto the front page.
