This item from Nicholsan1: straight up copy and paste stolen from this shop:

Most of the other items in Nicholsan1′s shop look dodgy too. The jewelry is all listed under handmade, but I have my doubts that it is.

I’m willing to bet that this one: is stolen from somewhere too since it actually has a real description but none of the other listings do (except for the other stolen one).

    The copied (stolen?) listing, the prices for the jewelry items (too low!), no Profile, does not take PayPal. Does not give me a feeling of confidence as a shopper, at the very least.

    Found this shop through the FP treasury — she is selling a lot of old HC books ‘for decor’. Nowhere in the listing does she clearly show the titles or authors, and there is nothing about what the books are in her description. Looked like the kind of ‘vintage’ shop Etsy admins love to feature. So I checked out the shop, and found this listing:

    Definitely the kind of ‘vintage’ shop Etsy boosts by putting on the FP. A slap in the face for vintage book sellers, vintage clothing sellers, and just vintage on Etsy in general.

    I was JUST about to post the crocs but LDW, you beat me to it! On the FP right now – unbelievable! How can they be vintage? Unreal.

    Nothing in this shop is handmade, and check out the shipping!

    Here is the same shop on Amazon, um no:

    Same photo and description, but compare the price!

    Item in pearlnecklaceonline’s Etsy shop:

    WJW about the shipping price! Actually, the jewelry prices, too, considering the stuff is base metal plated with gold or silver.

    I saw those books “home decor” on the FP earlier today and laughed out loud. I guarantee you I could go to a yard sale this weekend and buy a stack of ragged old books like that for 10 cents a piece. Tie a ribbon around them and I’ve got Etsy approved “home decor” – and for a lot less than $33!

    The ‘decor’ book sellers sometimes actually do show a clear photo of the spines or mention the authors and titles in the description, but selling old books on Etsy isn’t about what’s written in them. Sometimes valuable books are included in those lots that someone would be willing to purchase them for, even at that silly ‘decor’ price. It’s the same kind of nonsense as the ‘decor wall forks’ listing that never mentions kitchenware or says what the forks were used for (not decor). Sadly, Etsy is more likely to feature mis-labeled or under-identified items than any other kind of vintage…except for the used shoes and newish eyewear. Sucks.

    One of my genuine vintage items was featured in a treasury with this……
    It says right in the listing it is vintage inspired from a home decor store. Geez.

    Several issues in that shop. Like this ‘vintage’ item, with the back of the cards showing the publication date of 2011!

    here is the same bowl for 1/2 the price!

    This shop is part of the current front page treasury, but dunno if their item made it to the front page. They sell handmade mason jar lights, but date them by the jars, making them show up in both vintage and handmade searches as ‘vintage handmade’ which they aren’t:

    They are simply handmade. Notice the ‘vintage’ part goes away when they list the age of the item as ‘made to order’ instead of using the (supposed) age of the jar.

    Tiffany, I think I have seen those bowls in Tuesday Morning, cheap. There are too many gullible customers,
