    They are a retail store, so another fauxtiquer shop that buys vintage style new decor items wholesale to the trade:

    I think the price tag is attached to the blue and white flowered candle holder.

  7. Chinese Junk Sold as "handmade" on etsy November 9, 2011 at 2:14 pm #

    Take a look at this seller, “New York Crafts”

    http://www.etsy.com/shop/newyorkcrafts?ref=seller_info

    They are reselling from Chinese Wholesale companies. They even use the chinese sellers’ pictures with chinese characters on them!

    Look at these fake Betsey Johnson rings they are selling!

    http://www.etsy.com/listing/84771258/princess-octopus-ring

    They even have the Betsey Johnson tags. I cannot believe they allow this on their site.

    More fake Betsey Johnson:

    And how are these handmade?

    http://www.etsy.com/listing/85363344/octopus-ring

    I have seen them on Chinese wholesale websites for $0.45 a ring!

    Check out these, also from a Chinese wholesale company, being sold as “hand made” by new york crafts

    http://www.etsy.com/listing/85263009/peas-in-a-pod-necklace

    LOL and this “angel ring” even has the original wholesale companies pictures labeling it their ring:

    http://www.etsy.com/listing/85042777/mini-cupid-wings-ring

    How can etsy allow these ridiculous “handmade” items on their website. It is so obvious they are not handmade. What has happened? This seller is just reselling chinese junk!

    This is a fun shop. Here is one WTF listing:

    Don, vintage clothing is really becoming infested with new items. What a mess!

    Fun update to the closure of Crusty Insane’s Etsy shop. I am now on the bad buyer site, even though I never was stoopid enough to make a purchase in her shop:

    http://badbuyerlist.org/buyer/35173acc4877ebe077cd

    So the bad buyer list is a total fake because anyone you dislike online can wind up on it. How old is this person?

    A new listing from Marmaladeonetsy:
    http://www.etsy.com/listing/85795545/ceramic-santa-clause

    Check out the description…’measurements to come’ WTF? You own a bricks and mortar store that sells furniture and you don’t have anything to measure items with? Huh?

    Sorry for the random comment, but if I see another set of Vintage Antique French Keys I’m going to swear profusely in French. Pretty well anything tagged vintage french is the new rustic woodland.

  12. Life During Wartime November 10, 2011 at 12:38 pm #

    susan, sometimes vintage, French, and rustic, woodland, too. I mean, don’t you have to unlock the trees to get at the felted acorns?

    LDW, perhaps she started the site herself. This may be a bit too personal, but I assume she made up all the Satan worshipping stuff. :0)

  14. dinger November 11, 2011 at 5:24 am #

    Thank GOD those people will not buy from the lucky person who won;t have to deal withher nasty hyperbole

  15. DonCholodecki November 11, 2011 at 5:33 am #

    Wow. That woman is certifiable…

  16. Life During Wartime November 11, 2011 at 11:54 am #

    Lisa, I am a student of all things esoteric, and have been interested all my life in the unusual side of comparative religion. Crusty moused over my avatar here, and found my pen name (who doesn’t even have a bank account or credit card, so has never bought anything from anyone) and googled the name. Obviously if she found anything I have written on the net, she wouldn’t have a clue about understanding it. What this tells me is the Bad Buyers site is a fake because you can just put anyone’s name there, and no one asks for proof that a purchase was ever made. So darn funny!

    What the hell? Why osnt the Report this shop button working?
    ????

    WTF??

    Anyone else but me?

    I love the way iamsuperstar has ‘handmade’ rings made from pendants with the top hanging loop still attached. I mean, who would buy a piece of sloppy carp like that? Someone is making a statement here about the inferiority of real handmade to factory made cheap jewelry. As in: this looks handmade, doesn’t it, because it is poorly made and ugly? And Etsy corporate is too stoopid to figure out that their business is under attack by these Chinese factories dumping junk jewelry on the site. I don’t sell handmade, but I am furious. I am almost ready to want Etsy to ban the Chinese factory stores outright by closing them immediately as they open. This has gone too far!

    We purchased the buoy set at a barn sale and thought they were cool and weren’t aware that they were new. thanks for letting us know, it has been resolved. also, we have recently closed our brick and mortar store and are now an online only shop. I am also a knitter, and a sewer and hope to have more supplies and fun stuff uploaded as soon as my busy family schedule allows! keep on calling out!

    You should not be a vintage seller if you find items that you think are “cool” and assume they are vintage.
