    So SICK of seeing mass made crap labeled as handmade… You would hope people are smart enough to know it is not…

    Why is Johnny Depp on the FP right now?

    That picture is from an old issue of People Magazine (I have the magazine). The item for sale is designed after the cuff he’s wearing in the picture, but it’s copyright infringement to post that picture online and it’s even worse to use his image to sell your product.

    Many people might not be aware, but posting any content from magazines without permission is just as illegal as ripping a CD and posting the music online. If it’s wrong for someone to steal a picture you took and post it elsewhere online (especially to sell something), why is it any better for you to steal another photographer’s picture and use it as your own?

    Both the Ebay seller and the Etsy shop may be the same company — Indigo India. If this is a village craft distributor (reseller), or even a factory, that may be okay with Etsy as a collective. Yeah, that sucks.

    Personally, I think anyone who makes purchases from Asian manufacturer boutique shops on Etsy without checking the net for similar, or identical, products knows what they are getting and probably feels they are doing the politically correct thing by overpaying for cheap mass-produced items.

    It’s rather ironic that the wholesaler is selling lots of 10 for about the same price as the other dolt is selling a single piece! I’d say anyone who buys from the first seller, deserves to overpay for not doing their homework…and I know there are a lot of people who don’t bother to compare prices, even in this terrible economy!

    It’s been a while since I’ve been on here, but I found this shirt and actually liked it and thought, hmmm…..kinda cheap. So, I googled it. I mean come one?

    Stuck in the damned sixties. The same shit for a different time? No, just the same old shit.

  7. Priya August 23, 2011 at 8:11 pm #

    @life during wartime – No they both are not same company I have researched on that personally.
    The wholesale shop is a jaipur, India based company while the reseller is based out in kerela way down south in India. ANyone familiar with India can find the differences from there photo backgrounds itself

  8. Priya August 23, 2011 at 8:17 pm # she is using photos straight of from wholesaler website. Definitely not handmade

    here’s a blatant one Pivva from Italy:

    She has even taken her photos directly from the ebay seller

    Priya, thanks for the clarification. I don’t know anything about how business works in India. When the question is about businesses selling online, geography doesn’t have much to do with it, though. There are Etsy shops that have been called out here who mail from the USA, but their items are made in another country. The question I had was whether the Etsy shop and the Ebay seller were the same company, but maybe both of them are buying from Indigo India? The Ebay seller might be able to still sell at a wholesale price if they are buying large enough quantities, but the Etsy shop obviously is selling retail.

  11. Life During Wartime August 24, 2011 at 12:57 pm #

    Oh, okay. Just saw the link in a comment on the previous ECO topic about IndigoIndia’a Etsy shop.

  12. OldShit August 24, 2011 at 2:13 pm #

    The pashmina bus left a long time ago. There are lots of Etsy shops that sell “hand made pashminas” for under twenty bucks. Pill City!

  13. TootieSkates August 25, 2011 at 2:43 am #

    A few handmade items in among gift catalog scholck here:

  14. TootieSkates August 25, 2011 at 4:18 am #

    Do you think all of the turkish towels listed on etsy are handmade by the sellers? I think not.

  15. Life During Wartime August 25, 2011 at 10:43 am #

    Here’s a commercial item described as dated 2004:

    being sold as a handmade supply?

  16. TootieSkates August 25, 2011 at 2:56 pm #

    Well, LDW, I guess you could hang it on a chain, make it into a necklace and call it handmade…

  17. TootieSkates August 26, 2011 at 3:46 am #

    I love the cross body bag listing. “I have no idea when it was made”. She needs to be esquela’d.

  18. jessica August 26, 2011 at 11:47 am #

    TootieSkates.. Thank you ssooooo much for your input but I had it listed that way for a reason. If you have a problem with a listing in my shop then contact me with it.

  19. TootieSkates August 26, 2011 at 4:18 pm #

    Jessica, I have major problems with all of your listings. If you have no idea when it was made, then you shouldn’t be listing it for sale. Vintag items must be more than 20 years old. You clearly have neither the expertise or the ability to do research and so you have ZERO business selling vintage on etsy. Take it to craiglist.

  20. TootieSkates August 26, 2011 at 4:19 pm #

    Oh, and selling counterfeit handbags is a crime. Not to mention a violation of etsy’s Terms of Use. Classy!

  21. TootieSkates August 26, 2011 at 4:23 pm #

    Lastly, you are a flagrant mistagger. Why would you mislead sellers by tagging a Fendi bag with “Louis Vuitton, Chanel, Gucci, Dooney” when it is none of those? Another violation of the Terms of Use.

    By the way, you might want to read them because you clearly haven’t done so. Best of luck!

  22. jessica August 26, 2011 at 5:35 pm #

    First off I got that cross body bag at a VINTAGE store, but I knew I should be honest about it and let people know I dont know much about the item.. i could have EASILY lied and that would have been wrong. Secondly tagging an item isnt claiming that it is what its tagged but you are right when I got the update about tagging I meant to change it I give you that. There is nothing wrong with my replica Louis Vuitton. and may I suggest getting a more fullfilled life other than coming on here and making complaints about things you have no idea about. What a classy person to come on here and try to bully other people around because you dont like it. If you dont like my items don’t look at them simple as that. So pleasde stay away from me, my shop, and my items.

  23. TootieSkates August 26, 2011 at 5:45 pm #

    Again, it is ILLEGAL (specifically, a felony) to sell a counterfeit bag. A replica is the same thing as a counterfeit. Louis Vuitton takes the sale of counterfeits very seriously.

    Hon, I have been selling vintage for longer than you have been on this earth. This ain’t my first rodeo. You have 4 items listed and you haven’t a clue about when any of them were made. Just because you buy something in a vintage shop or a thrift store or Goodwill means NOTHING. Your skill and research amounts to “I found this in my grandmother’s closet.” Awesome.

  24. jessica August 26, 2011 at 5:46 pm #

    Oh and you don’t know anything about me OR my expertise OR my ability to do research thank you very much. You obviously like coming on here and creating issues because all you had to do in the first place was write me a message and say.. hey this can’t be on etsy if you don’t know the year. (Like some nicer person did letting me know about you) and it would have been fixed. I am new to etsy and selling all together so give me a break. Im not one of those people who purposely misrepresent items or try to rip people off. maybe you should go after them instead of a 20 year old girl. talk about classy…

  25. jessica August 26, 2011 at 5:54 pm #

    Sweetie don’t talk to me about law.. I know more about it than you think. I think my grandma should know when the she bought the items in her closet.. after all it is her closet so when she says .. I bought this in the 80’s.. im gonna take her word for it. And yes.. when I walk into AMERICAN VINTAGE on melrose.. look it up.. i’ll wait. It should be vintage. I believe you when you say you’ve been doing this a long time. I have no doubt you know what your doing.. all im saying is putting me on this call out site as opposed to talking to me directly about your issues is a little insulting and unappreciated. Now I don’t appreciate your attitide and Im apologizing for mine and Im gonna let this go and just hope that the next time you decide you have an issue, you bring it up to the person rather than resorting to this.

  26. peace August 26, 2011 at 8:02 pm #

    If you think there’s nothing wrong with selling a replica handbag then try selling that thing on Ebay and see how long you last.

    Also, found this on a website if anyone feels so inclined to use it:
    “1-866-NOTFAKE. This hotline is for the international anticounterfeiting coalition (ACC) in order to report manufacturers, sellers and distributors of fake designer bags. The source of this number comes from a Harper’s Bazzar article in the January 2005 issue. It is a crime to manufacture and/or sell fake designer bags.”

  27. jenjasmine August 27, 2011 at 12:35 am #

    Jessica- you got an update about tagging? From Etsy?

    Hahahahahaha! I have been there since 2006 and have never gotten one email about any of their policy changes.
    They must like you, for some reason.

  28. jenjasmine August 27, 2011 at 12:46 am #

    Oh right, because they love fakers and liars, because they ARE fakers and liars.
    And people who don’t have a clue about what they are selling in their own shop, and then go crying wah wah wah you are so mean, why did you call us on the carpet, well shee-it , are you just plain stupid?
    Oh wait, you won’t be stupid anymore because the more you read here the more you will realize that ETSY does not care!
    So go re-open your shop, and go merrily on your way.
    Don’t worry about us, we make no actual difference at all in the lives of etsy crappy shops who lie cheat and mostly, lie.

  29. TootieSkates August 27, 2011 at 3:24 am #

    Follow the rules and you don’t get called out. Its so very easy.

  30. Velamint August 27, 2011 at 3:30 pm #

    Jessica, I’ve been in American Vintage. Just this spring, in fact. I walked right past the new and merely used crap and dug until I found a 1930s dress they’d drastically underpriced. As true vintage has gotten harder to find, shops across the country are carrying more new and secondhand merchandise like jeans and sunglasses. Just because something comes from a “vintage” store, doesn’t mean it’s vintage.

    Lesson #2, don’t just “take grandma’s word for it.” Even if she’s still sharp, grandma only thinks she remembers where and when she got that. She has, as a friend of mine used to say, “forgotten more than you’ll ever learn.” Sometimes the owner’s story is correct, but if you can’t verify it it’s worthless. You need to learn how to research things for yourself.

    #3, don’t post angry rants that can be traced back to you/your shop. The internets is public.

    And TootieSkates is right about the counterfeit bag. You really COULD get in trouble. Legal trouble. (Not to mention that they are tacky! C’mon! I bet even Snooky doesn’t carry a fake bag!)

    You can do better! Why set such a low bar for yourself?

    You screwed your own pooch, Jessica.

    Another loser of a shop with fake bags and bag new items tagged vintage:

  34. Doodie September 1, 2011 at 7:35 am #

    Check out the profile page for the shop

    That’s great information.

  35. Life During Wartime September 1, 2011 at 12:24 pm #

    Etsy should have bots coded up to search vintage listings for contemporary designers and manufacturers too new to be vintage. There is no reason why Etsians should be wasting time reporting shops like cmreategui. These sellers should be spotted as soon as they list an item that is not allowed, and their items disappeared while the staff contacts them with a reminder to read the rules.

  36. priya September 1, 2011 at 7:27 pm #

    southindiabazaar is still open :((
