Another seller of brand new counterfeits. Their sold items will make you ill. I bet they have a table on Canal Street too.


The “make me an offer” is priceless.

    I’d love to see the new Etsy Transaction Spam “You might like” based on that sale!

    It goes something like this…
    “Thanks for your Etsy purchase based on your purchase you might also like this Hello Kitty Alarm Clock, this Steampunk Owl Pendant, or this
    Single Stone wrapped in wire necklace. Enjoy! Much Love-Etsy”

    Exactly right, WittyBird! Resellers infest so many of the Etsy categories. For the average cupcakette buyer, it won’t matter — she is just looking for the appearance of style at a bargain price. The new transaction spam seems meant to drive discerning shoppers away from Etsy,

    Check out the new featured seller…any copyright issues?

    How much creativity is involved in printing common catch phrases on pencils? He belongs at a school craft fair not as Etsy’s featured sellers. And, yes, he’s totally ripping off original copyrighted material. An opportunist at best. Please don’t call him an artitst. Embarrassing feature.

    I don’t usually look at featured sellers on the front page, but after reading your comments I clicked over for a peek. Holy moly! What is feature-worthy about that? Making pencils with unimaginative pop culture references on them? Seriously? I remember visiting the YES! bookshop in Georgetown when Twin Peaks was the hot thing, and they had their register programmed to sit idle with a message “COOPER….COOPER…COOPER…” running across the screen. Now that was damn funny. If it had just said Twin Peaks that would have been lame. If you must reference dead pop culture, then at least be clever and make it your own.

    Is the Etsy staff a bit dim, or what?

    He’s probably not even doing the printing. AWESOME.

    I noticed he had the nerve to borrow from ATLAS SHRUGGED. Freeloader!

    Another wig reseller – http://www.etsy.com/shop/wangjing1

    Ha- look at the profile on the wig reseller:

    “We are all God’s children, so to comply with God’s will, to do an honest, trustworthy person, I will continue to, believe me, I will provide you high quality products, excellent service! Thank you!”

    Yeah, sure….

    Yes, take the word of a stranger trying to make money. Right.

    WJW, when I see any seller anywhere dragging in the Deity to cover their butts, I keep walking. Almost all the fauxtique private auctions I used to see on Ebay named god as their rip-off co-pilot. This new wig seller looks to be using some of the same photos as the two shops shut down last month. Where the heck is SCRAM?

  13. Life During Wartime November 5, 2011 at 4:40 pm #

    WTF, Dinger? And they already made a sale.

    I see words like “imported” and “drop ship” in the text of their shop. Too bad Etsy never bothered to use bots to find these resellers. Resellers need have no fear of being caught by Etsy…only of being caught by us!

  14. Dinger November 6, 2011 at 10:15 am #

    yes, I want a piece of crap that has to travel all over the place from who knows where.

  15. Trista November 6, 2011 at 9:11 pm #

    Looks like the wig & leather shops are finally emptied out.

  16. AssGasorGrass November 7, 2011 at 4:44 am #

    I don’t understand why the shop gets emptied but the account stays open…why not just delete the whole thing?

  17. Life During Wartime November 7, 2011 at 10:21 am #

    I don’t think Etsy deletes a shop for reselling. Because I think Etsy tries to find a way to keep resellers on the site, and adapt their shops with a little coaching, a change in inventory or the way the text is written. I think the shops that are gone and get oopsie girl were deleted by the seller.

    Agreed, it’s pretty easy to find the callout, and they keep a low profile until the heat dies down.
