nestingpretty

18 Nov

Just a reminder before we get angry mobs for these copycat posts- this is someone’s callout, not written by us. Don’t shoot the messenger. Now then, discuss…

NestingPretty copies NestPrettyThingsShop down to the name!

http://www.etsy.com/shop/nestingpretty
http://www.etsy.com/shop/nestprettythingsshop

It’s so obvious she’s copying the original shop (NestPrettyThingsShop). Their designs are similiar but some listing descriptions are flat-out copying the original Nest PrettyThings shop.

She also copied Dreams by the Sea with her leaf bobby pins.

I confronted NestingPretty on Facebook when she linked her leaf bobby pins telling her she was a copycat and even though she KNOWS she’s a copycat she has the ballz to say:

“I don’t really understand your comment. All of my designs are original one of a kind designed my myself. If someone else has something similar I am not aware of it. Maybe you could inform me??”

Yeah right! Loser!

**Definitely check out the comments with lots of interesting links…

    But the nest pretty things was open in 2006 BEFORE the Nesting Pretty.in 2009… so I am confused, which one is the copy cat? … and …. their personal names are even copied…. er … VERY similar… just saying

  2. Discord Threads November 18, 2011 at 1:45 pm #

    Weird….are you sure it isn’t the same person, but they live in multiple locations… Once says Tamara in CA and the other is Tamar in VT….
    Not sure if this is a copycat or possibly the same person with two shops???

  3. 123 November 18, 2011 at 2:47 pm #

    Tamar of Nest Pretty Things is the original–she’s been featured in the Storque and has a very successful shop. I came across Nesting Pretty awhile back and did a double take, because I thought for a moment it was the same shop, but they aren’t the same person. I wonder how many sales Nesting Pretty has gotten as a result of that confusion however…

  4. Trista November 18, 2011 at 2:59 pm #

    Looks like NestingPretty changed their shop name from from tamaralove1 on Oct 18, 2011.
    NestPrettyThingsShop changed their shop name from tamar on Oct 18, 2011.

    NestingPretty’s profile is totally different and leads me to believe she is the copycat. It doesn’t sound professional at all, the way NestPrettyThingsShop does. It looks like NestingPretty is a hardcore copycat and stalker, down to copying the other person’s real life name. D:

    People like this make me absolutely sick. I’ve had some bad copycats before (and of course when confronted they play totally dumb) but this is waaaaay more extreme than anything I could ever have imagined someone taking the time to do. I mean, even copying someones REAL LIFE NAME?! What kind of psycho does this??

  5. Tara November 18, 2011 at 3:03 pm #

    Well, the question would be then… since you say Nest Pretty Things is the original… it was opened LAST… so IF THE first shop opened in 2006 was NOT pre-existing… when did it change to be a copy cat? … …

    so looking back through Nest Pretty Things sold items… it seems the store has ‘evolved’ quite a bit in product and even types. The type of products that were sold originally, are not still sold AND they recently changed their shop name. The shop was originally just called TAMAR until October 18…. I can’t see exactly when the product line changed, but it definitely did at some point… these are all points to take into consideration when pointing fingers I think.

    Further NOTE – Nesting Pretty also changed their name on the same day it was originally Tamaralove1 and product line has basically stayed consistent since opening. With 343 sales in a little over 2 years….

    I have no idea why someone would want two identical shops- that makes no sense so can’t reason that one.

    I wanna know when Nest Pretty Things product line changed- but I don’t have that long to sit here… I just don’t think this one is as clear cut as many of the others and I don’t believe that whoever was published really has anything to do with who is the copycat… It could be right and could not be but copycats have been published before. That’s not a factor IMHO.

    Who’s on first?

  7. chatty November 19, 2011 at 10:05 am #

    This is confusing. All I know is tamara (the nesting pretty things shop) has called out this other seller multiple times in the etsy forums. Like…..a LOT of times. I would have to say get over it, it is not a clear case of anything at all, and the “alleged” copycat has 300 or so sales in comparison to her thousands. It is very very strange that both shops changed their names on the same day. It would be interesting to know which shop changed their name first.

    The very first thought that popped into my mind, and admittedly it’s probably crazy but it was my first thought, was that these shops are somehow in cahoots or even owned by the same person and the more popular one is using the copycat as a way to keep getting publicity by continuing, over the course of years and years, to call her out.

  8. sickofetsyshit November 19, 2011 at 11:05 am #

    Well, I like Nest Pretty Things shop – but I’m that kinda gal. Sadly, her shop name is pretty awkward and much too similar to the *other* shop. The other shop is a cheap imitation and I do understand the original’s frustration at having someone ride their coattails and reputation. It isn’t that the jewelry itself is so unique – difficult to be when the components are the same – but that the copycat duplicated the look and feel of the original. I’d be pissed, too!

    Thanks to this callout, I’ve found I like the Nest Pretty Things shop and will actually buy something there. On the other hand, it’s not like I need to know of more places to spend money, lol!

    I think you guys have taken it a little too far with the accusations.. Even if the shops are similar.. with all your creativity-is-king mentalities you forget that we are businesses.. and it’s completely LEGAL and ETHICAL to open similar shops with similar interests so close to each other. There are no identical products being copied here.. their branding might appeal to the same type of consumer, and they sell in the same category of products, but they are not copying each other.

    If things worked out the way you want them to work, there would not me a Macy’s and a JC Penney in the same mall.. there would be no Foot locker and Champs store in the same mall. When we open our Etsy stores, there’s no requirement that says that our product should be innovative or require a patent… or that we can’t buy from the same vendors.. so similarities are bound to happen..

    I think you guys need to step off your high horse and start realizing what having a business is… Etsy is not a competition on who is more creative than who, or who hasnt thought of this or that first…. call outs should be about people reselling or selling fake brand products, no for defending friends that think that they are only unique creatives in the world..

    And I leave you with this thought.. One of my design teachers said this once (after a student was complaining to him that another student had stolen his idea for a school project) : “The important thing is not that he stole the idea from you, ideas are things that come and go, what’s going to hold up is who has executed the idea the best”
    In other words, don’t worry so much about whos stealing what from you.. just try to make it better than anybody else…

  10. Life During Wartime November 19, 2011 at 1:19 pm #

    I find this callout confusing, too. There are similarites between the two shops, but they really are not identical.

    Etsy actually encourages copycatting through its merchandising trends. What I see on the front page are small groups of items from different sellers who all present their items in the same way. A lot of successful Etsy shops do handle their business in a very commercial manner, which includes a certain amount of copying in materals, design and presentation. In some categories, at some price points, Etsy does look like an online shopping mall.

    But this does not imply unethical behavior on the part of shops that work to get the right look for the season, or whatever.

  11. Loving life November 19, 2011 at 6:38 pm #

    I agree with Juju totally and completely. anyone who doesnt get that doesnt have a brain or any business sense whatsoever..and have a little more to add.
    I know tammy of Nesting Pretty. In fact she lives in the same small town I do and actually works really hard making her shop her own. When she even noticed the weird coincidence, she contacted tamar of nest pretty herself just to make sure she wasnt offended and aware her shop existed and contained those pieces before she had knowledge of tamars shop. She’s a wonderful mother, wife and friend and would not flat out copy someone’s necklaces.

    and on that note- what is up with this site? so you guys can get on your high horses and maliciously attack people? turn on the news and then take a look in the mirror- this is cyber bulling at its best. for some ass hole behind a computer to “call people out” and then everyone chime in..im sorry, i dont believe the world is some candyland fairy tale..but I havent been this disappointed in a while.

    and heres a reality check- you think Tamar is the original and sole creator of that style?

    you guys are the freaking losers. Dont you have anything else to do?
    etsy has hundreds of jewelry shops, hundreds of letterpress shops, hundreds of soap shops.. thats the point. its a marketplace!! God forbid Tamar make enough for the whole world herself. Id love to see if this even gets posted.

    ______________________________

    Am I misunderstanding what you’re saying? Nestprettythingsshop opened in 2006 which would make it the FIRST shop opened. They are saying “nestingpretty” is the copycat.

    ____________________________________

    Many (most?) Etsy shops that opened in 2006 (and the early days of Etsy) have evolved quite a bit. Trends change, tastes changes, some things were big sellers, but now aren’t, could be any number of things so I don’t think that’s odd at all that their products would evolve.

    If you look at nestprettythingshop’s early sold items many of their purses have a small fabric tag with “nest pretty things” on it. The earliest I found was May 12, 2007. Just a guess, but were they using that as a shop name (like on their banner) all along? Since it’s very recent that we’ve been able to change user names (was October 18th the date that went into effect?), they changes their user name to the name they’ve been selling under since 2006/2007. Makes sense to me!

  14. Tara November 19, 2011 at 8:22 pm #

    I will attempt to explain why it matters to those that want to call Illegal activity legal. It is NOT legal in any way to copy a shop as one of these shops have been obviously copied. As incorrectly stated above… it is NOTHING like Macy’s and JCPenny.

    When I walk into a Macy’s I am SURE that is is in fact a MACY’S that I am walking into. When I walk into JCPenny’s … again, I know that for a fact. They are clearly different, in name, look, style, atmosphere etc. These two shops are NOT. They are almost identical. It is ILLEGAL to make yourself look and sound so much like another shop as to deceive your clients or potential clients into thinking that they are in fact another shop. Anyone that thinks that this deception is LEGAL- is poorly misinformed and I think it is a horrible testimony to the turn our country has taken that our consciences have been so weakened.

    You let Macy’s or JCPenny’s find a shop that is set up like it is so closely that customers are confused walking in the doors, like one would be with these shops. That shop would have a lawsuit slapped on it so fast it would feel like a tornado hit!

    If there ever was an infringement, this is it. If the shop owner that was infringed on does not care, then that is her prerogative. But why do you think that Patents, Trademarks and Copyrights exist. Infringement of ANY kind is ILLEGAL… and it may be standard where some people come from… but I assure you it is NOT legal in this country. I will refer you to the United States Patent and Trademark Office for the Official judgment call.

    That is the issue plain and simple. It is really irrelevant what products these two stores sell… because when you sell this type and its not handmade 100% there are going to be many similarities. But similar is not the exact same. these two shops are same in name so much so that I have to keep referring back to the shops page to distinguish them apart by the date they opened. Otherwise, it is difficult to tell. The problem is in the confusion that it creates and the deception that it involves. If they are different shops then one person could think that they are the same and therefore they are confused.

    I am sure there is plenty that can be found on the internet about Intellectual Property rights and infringements. I am also sure that there is plenty at the P and T Office as stated above. If you think is is directly okay to copy any business, you should read through some of the case law. If you make a design on a blue jean pocket that looks too similar to the designs on a Design Patented jean pocket- you are going to get slapped wiht infringement. That is NOT business, it is NOT in good taste, it is NOT legal and is NOT advisable.

  15. kitten November 19, 2011 at 8:30 pm #

    @Tara In your opinion which shop is the copycat (nestingpretty OR nestprettythingsshop)?

  16. Tara November 19, 2011 at 8:35 pm #

    The OTHER problem… and why some of us LOSERS care about what these shops do… because it affects the entire reputation of Etsy and its image and trust to all of its and our clients and customers. I don’t want to be associated with a disreputable untrustworthy business and I am sure most of us would agree. We want our customers to trust us and NOT to be confused about who we are. I AS A customer have a RIGHT to NOT be confused and to trust the people I am shopping with. Surely our conscience and morals would dictate this. I am not sure how ethics came into play… but I am sure the definition was reversed when it was read. If this was taken before the Patent and Trademark Office- I am sure they would find that one of these stores infringed the other.

    Etsy’s reputation directly reflects the reputation of each of us. I have had clients tell me at shows that they had a bad deal with ONE Etsy seller and will never shop on Etsy again… That is a BIG deal. It reflects on ALL OF us. That is why we care.

    Customers have rights too… And Etsy has stated clearly what it stands for and doesn’t. The main reason we are hear is because there are a lot of wholesalers and resellers that buy from places like China and try to pass if off as handmade or buy knock-offs and try to pass them off as Vintage brand names, etc.

    We do this… primarily because we are asshole losers that CARE ABOUT OUR CUSTOMERS AND OUR REPUTATIONS. First and foremost.

    It doesn’t matter what one’s opinion is. The opinions are honestly irrelevant. The fact is, we are all confused to a point looking at these two shops and if were were any kind of moral human being or decent business owner, we would have to stand back and put ourselves in the shoes of our customers and potential customers and say- how would they feel to be treated this way? Is it right morally or not? This is NOT ‘just business’. Business competition is totally different than this. I also care, because I would not want this done to me.

    Further, deceiving our clients into thinking that they are buying USA handmade or where ever it is… and then come to find out its a cheap 10 cent bobble that was bought from Alibaba and made in a another country on a machine… that is deceiving! Deceiving is lying. In business it is illegal. Please look it up! Don’t take my word for it. Its in our country’s laws… no need to exercise a lack of tact and come on here yelling at everyone. Without our customers, we don’t exist and we strive to be reputable and trustworthy and completely clear… that is by the way, a standard in Business… Open Air. Please do your research.

  17. Tara November 19, 2011 at 8:37 pm #

    Kitten, I have no idea. I don’t have all the facts and its really NOT for me to say. I was simply pointing out that things are NOT as cut and dry as they first appeared. Someone came on here and said that they knew one of the shops and she was very ticked… someone else comes on and says she knows the shop and she is not mad… both can’t be true.

    I don’t know either of these shops- but I do know for a fact that I had to click back and forth SEVERAL times before I could distinguish and I have to put myself in a customers shoes.

  21. kitten November 19, 2011 at 8:49 pm #

    Are there any “exact” items in the shops? Both these shops seem to be using supplies that are readily available all over the web (including Etsy) so there are bound to be similarities between these shops and others on Etsy. The photography style is also not original to either seller (imo).

    In my opinion the shop name is the only thing that is copycat/stalker-ish. If nestprettythingshop has been selling under this name since at least 2007, that was before the other shop opened on Etsy… sooooo I would take a stab that nestingpretty is the copier??

  22. Juju November 19, 2011 at 9:57 pm #

    Tara:

    Obviously, you have 0 experience in retail visual merchandising and marketing.. with 12 years in it, I can tell you that this case IS like a Macy’s / JCPenney dilemma.. they are selling to the same target market, with the same type of merchandise to sell…

    http://michelgutsatz.typepad.com/.a/6a00e55371cb7d88340120a799252b970b-800wi

    Without Googling the source of these images, ,tell me what stores those are…

    Yes, I understand there are differences, in their materials, the fonts they use, the logos, the posters on the wall. But both of them sell the same thing.. In this section, they are both selling makeup probably the same brands and they have to compete to get the attention of the same target customer. They cannot sue each other, because they sell same makeup in a similar environment feel that the other one does…

    Also, I think you are the one that needs to consult copyright infringement laws and realize, that ideas and concepts are not able to be patented. You can only copyright (with certain limitations) original images, original writing, original music, use and purpose of an object (including design plans), physical & chemical composition of synthetic materials. They need to be tangible ( I actually should say perceivable with any of the 5 senses) and unique in arrangement. Therefore, the idea of a romantic/flowery jewelry store, with similar color palette, cannot be COPYRIGHTED like you say. The names do have a similarity, and is the only thing that keeps them associated.. let’s say Nesting Pretty’s name was.. “Birdies Rose Garden” and the problem disappears..

  23. susan November 20, 2011 at 9:01 am #

    I’m skipping the walls of text. What’s frying my bacon is what Life During Wartime posted: the shop ShiningGift, which has been called out here many times and flagged for reselling has made the front page. I just don’t get it. Etsy can shut some shops down the first day they list (recently with WeddingLisa, qiaoxitingpeng5) and yet leave the PROVEN chinese jewelry resellers alone. There were a couple of call out treasuries made about the chinese jewelry resellers but they have been deleted and the sellers go on and on.

    So when two North American sellers have a war between each other over who was first, it stops the focus on the resellers who don’t even pretend to be jewelry assemblers as they all use the same catalog photos.

    Seems like there are very loud people here who have very little personal sense of ethics. I say, blow it out your ass if you don’t have some sort of inner compass that tells you that illegal and immoral are not the same things. I think you have those terms confused.

    I am on the side of ethical, legal or not, and do not like people who can’t tell the difference. They clutter up my universe.

    Juju and Lovinglife (although we know you are Tamara, but that’s okay since my name is obviously not sickofetsyshit lol) the facts are that these shops’ situation is nothing akin to macy’s and penney’s and nordstrom, et al. None of those stores try so hard to copy and look and feel of the other. They are their own entity in spite of the fact of selling similar merchandise to the same audience. If I walk into a macy’s I’m pretty sure I know I’m not in penney’s or saks or urban outfitters or forever 21.

    These etsy shops have several deliberately similarities. This is confusing to the average consumer.
    1) Coincidence that their “real” names are Tamar and Tamara

    but it’s not coincidence and just plain unnatural that
    2) the shop names are too similar
    3) the items being sold are pretty much the same
    4) the shop look and feel is too similar as well and it’s just all around confusing.
    5) one shop has been here longer, has been published dozens of times both in print and on the web.

    People who copy will always exist and it’s just kinda tacky. It would be another thing entirely if the second shop had the same look and feel but sold different items or that the second shop sold the same items, but their shop had a different (unique) esthetic.

    This is most definitely not bullying – as far as I know, no one has contacted the second shop for any reason – that might be considered bullying.

    We are allowed to express our observations and opinions just as you are 🙂 However, your posts might have more credibility and your status as a seller viewed as more professional if you refrained from calling people names. Just a helpful tip. 🙂

    Turd grande…I love it!

    Funny that when Etsy cleaned out what they think are all the brand name bag resellers, this shop was left, with their reseller goods available. Etsy’s merchandising trends for this month include designer brands – high fashion, but the staff doesn’t have a list of names to search for to keep their promotion honest. WJW.

  33. Tara November 20, 2011 at 4:21 pm #

    Seems like something has been working… there are a lot of shops that have been featured on here in the last month or two that when I went back to look for them, they are not there anymore.

    I wish people would just ‘get it’… There is a WHOLE world of ideas and stuff and that is what creativity is about. We all have to have something like it… if we would just find it and use it…

  34. Nesting Pretty November 20, 2011 at 5:50 pm #

    Hi There ~ This is Tamara of Nesting Pretty. The REAL Tamara. I am not Juju or Loving Life, who seem to have made the only intelligent comments here. Thank you both for your supportive comments.

    Back to the accusation at hand.

    I have been reading this nonsense for a day and a half now (not that I should be wasting my time on such foolishness) but when people like yourselves decide to come in here and try to slander someone you do not even know without knowing the truth, it has finally gotten to me.

    ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!!!!!!

    So here is the real deal.

    My real name is in fact Tamara, given to me at birth by my mother 42 years ago. It states this on my birth certificate. I have been creating jewelry for many years under the name of Nesting Pretty, although not on Etsy until 2009. I created the name Nesting Pretty while trying to think of something that would match my signature blue bird that you will find as my avatar, in my shop banner, on my blog, my Facebook page, as well as the cards that go out with each one of my sales. I simply looked at it and told myself he’s nesting while also pretty, hence Nesting Pretty was born. Pretty darn boring… Right!! But true!!

    I am aware that there is a shop called Nest Pretty Things Shop with a shopkeeper by the name of Tamar, however I did not come across her shop until months after my shop had been opened. As any normal business minded person might do, I decided to search for shops with similar items as mine. I guess you could say I was sizing up my competition. It was at this time that I stumbled upon Tamar’s shop, along with hundreds of other shops that also had similar items as mine. Tamar’s shop did however stand out to me not solely because of the huge similarity in our birth names but also our shop names. By this discovery I did not respond negatively as all of you have responded, but in fact I found it to be uniquely sweet that there was another lovely lady out there that could think so closely to myself. I have had conversations with Tamar in the past and have found her to be nothing but lovely as is her shop, and wish her only continued success, which she most certainly has accomplished.

    As for our creative styles, the only similarity that I see is that we both seem to adore using beautiful flowers in our designs. PERIOD!!!

    I have two pages of rings where Tamar has 2 rings. Tamar has an entire page of flower bracelets where I have zero. Tamar has three pages of flower necklaces where I have only 2 necklaces of a similar style. Our hair accessories are nothing alike, outside of a feather bobby pin which I have seen in tooooo many shops to count.

    I have many vintage lockets including perfume lockets where Tamar has none.

    If you can not see this then you are either blind or extremely stupid!

    As for us changing our shop names on the same date. HELLO!! That is when Etsy allowed us to finally change them. If you were so up to date on Etsy’s rules you would have known this.

    To the woman “Jana Hastings” who started all of this. You claim that you contacted me on Facebook, when in fact you did not contact me, but instead you took it upon yourself to leave a nasty, accusing comment on my page deliberately set out to hurt me.

    If you were so damn curious to know about me or my shop, all you had to do was message me and ask, instead of being the evil cowardly person that you most certainly are.

    SHAME ON YOU!!!!!!

    As for the person that I am. I am a wife, mother, daughter, sister and a best friend to many. I chose Etsy as my creative outlet so that I could stay at home with my two beautiful children. PERIOD!!!

    If any of you so called supporters of Etsy and the handmade commitment would like to know more about the real Tamara of Nesting Pretty.. Please.. I welcome you to contact me. Or you could just stay the same cowards that you have shown yourselves to be in this awful thread.

    I am a loving compassionate person to all. What are you????

    I apologize for my type, but I certainly did not want to waste time on you very hurtful people so that I could get back to enjoying a lovely day with my sweet family

    The last thing I was going to share with all of you was another lovely shop that I came across a few weeks ago that has almost identical items as the Nest Pretty Things Shop, but I would hate to see her become your next victim and have to endure the same hurt that you have inflicted on me.

    You claim that you contacted me on Facebook, when in fact you did not contact me, but instead you took it upon yourself to leave a nasty, accusing comment on my page deliberately set out to hurt me.
    _________________

    I never said I contacted you on FB, I said I CONFRONTED you. And that nasty comment? All I said was, ‘She is a copycat.’

    To which you said something along the lines of thanking me for my comment and then saying (I quote), “I don’t really understand your comment. All of my designs are original one of a kind designed my myself. If someone else has something similar I am not aware of it. Maybe you could inform me??”

    Of course, before I had chance to reply, you DELETED your leaf bobby pins link including all of the comments along with it and then changing your listing of 4 leaf bobby pins to two in different combinations instead of keeping it the way you originally had it. Doesn’t take a genius to figure out why you did that.

    Don’t make yourself out to be the victim when clearly you aren’t.

  36. Juju November 20, 2011 at 7:02 pm #

    You got it wrong, I’m not Tamara.

    I just don’t like so called victims bullying a person before asking the facts first. And if you can’t confirm them, at least question the 2 sides of a story. Etsy has washed your brains so much that you guys only know how to think one way, all the answers are the same as what the admins rinse and repeat when it comes to TOU, visual merchandising etc. that you have no idea how the real world works. I’m a seller too, I design my own characters so I don’t worry too much about how Etsy wants me to sell, but about making my customer service experience be worth it.

    For the record, I didn’t call anybody names, I did use the phrase about “riding on a high horse”, just because you sound like you are the Etsy police and you need to pick and judge as you see it on your one-way narrow view…

    I don’t think myself better than anybody else that has self respect for their own work and their own personal values. But come on seriously? Questioning a persons life? A real name? I mean, are you in the need of some fantasy justice adventure that you make up these things about people?

    You guys need to step into a court where there’s copyright infringement issue being handled so you can see what real infringement and to what extent are the cases followed.. Specially when is about competitive branding.

    Oh, there was also someone that mentioned about JCPenney and Macy’s not copying each others strategies when it comes to promotion and marketing… Little child, please don’t come into an advertising meeting by yourself, you might be scared.

  37. Nesting Pretty November 20, 2011 at 7:37 pm #

    Hey Jana. You are by far a genius!!!! If you must know I changed my bobby pin listings because I thought they would look better in my shop that way not to mention of having a better chance of selling at the lesser price. And of course I deleted your rude FB comment. Who wouldn’t. You are by far the meanest, nastiest person I think I have ever met that is associated to Etsy. If you are even associated. I wouldn’t know since I have tried to view your info on Facebook with your page being set to private.

    You are in fact a BIG LOOSER that needs to seriously get a life!!!!

    And yes!!! I am the victim here with you being the victimizer!!!!!!

    I bet you are a single lonely unloved girl. That’s why you chose to lash out at us loved happy people.

    I’m done here!!!

  38. Nesting Pretty November 20, 2011 at 7:39 pm #

    Really you need to leave Nesting Pretty Alone! She Clearly makes all her own items. You have no life and are just jealous of others success. If your Etsy shops were doing as good as most that you call out maybe you would not be as upset! It’s sad for you all that post these “call out’s”

  46. Nesting Pretty November 21, 2011 at 2:01 pm #

    hahaha. Ella Bella.. You are funny. How else would one describe a comfy ribbed headband. but exactly what it is. Comfy and ribbed!!!!

    and I noticed that most of Tamar’s items that you shared with us were already sold way before mine were even listed. Hum!!! I wonder how I would know about something in her shop that wasn’t even there because it had already sold. and I soooo do not go poking around in other shops sold section. obviously like you enjoy doing!!

  47. Nesting Pretty November 21, 2011 at 2:51 pm #

    I don’t have time to post item by item.. but here is a shop that has items similar if not exactly to Tamar’s and my shop. Ooh!! I wonder who she is copying.

    http://www.etsy.com/shop/rosesandlemons

    also from her shop these pretty gold rose bobby pins that I believe you tried to find a comparison in my shop and missed by far..

    I would say that they are almost exact to Tamar’s.. wouldn’t you???
    http://www.etsy.com/listing/83441249/on-sale-pure-romance-bobby-pin-set-two

    This is a marketplace. and there will be hundreds if not thousands of shops that have similar if not the exact items in them.. THAT, however does not mean we are copying each other!!!

    I didn’t share this shop to hurt her as well. I only wanted to show that there are other shops on here with pages and pages of like items.

    You wonder how you would know about something in her shop that wasn’t even there because it had already sold? Duh, by looking at sold items! I think you just outed yourself Nesting Pretty, lol. You’re getting an AWFUL LOT of inspiration from Nest Pretty Things, so yeah, no doubt about it you’ve checked out her sold items.

    I know you’re all obviously buying the same supplies, but damn Nesting Pretty, put your own spin SOMETHING!

    Chatty above said that Nest Pretty Things has called out Nesting Pretty in the forums a LOT of times. Nesting Pretty has said she has conversed with Nest Pretty Things in the past and has found her to be lovely. Perhaps whoever submitted this call-out would like to ask Nest Pretty Things if they care to give their version of the story.

This shop is handmade period the end you fools!

  53. sickofcopycats design your own stuff bitch November 21, 2011 at 7:46 pm #

    I see several items copied by you nestingpretty – things that you say are unique to you. Uh, sure. You copy a necklace but instead of 8 yellow beads per side of the SAME FOCAL PIECE you used 7. That’s merely one example out of dozens of your items. And besides browsing through the original artists’ sold items, the other thing you could have done, probably do, (should absolutely do to keep current with the market – it’s called research) is favorite items you see currently for sale, make them and list them after the original shop’s item has sold. Clever girl you – but do try to use your cleverness to come up with your own designs.
    Not that it’s worth anything or makes you any less guilty, but your shop name is easier to remember than Nest Pretty Things.

  60. Megan November 22, 2011 at 3:19 pm #

    I’m sorry Nesting Pretty, but it’s not only the jewelry designs! You’re using almost identical backdrops for your photos. So, not only do you claim to merely have come up with similar jewelry as her, but you also photograph it in almost the exact same style? Such a coincidence!

  61. Nesting Pretty November 22, 2011 at 4:34 pm #

    Megan.. you must be blind.. The only thing I use is china plates and teacups. Solely because I adore them and have been a collector of them for many years. Tamar’s shop is filled with color, created by what appears to be wallpaper or card stock. I wouldn’t know because I do not use it, unless it’s placed underneath my china plate so as not to see the deck I am shooting on. When I look at my shop I see light blue and a white doily background. which Tamar does not use.

    You people are sick!!!!!!!

    My shop looks nothing like Tamar’s. Who cares if we have a handful of similar items. or even if we have a few of the exact same items. HELLO. So do so many other shops on Etsy. How can you guys do this. It looks to me that maybe Tamar, myself and so many others on here simply have the same taste/style.

    I am so sick of you haters!!!!!!! You all seriously need to get a life!!!!!!

  62. Nesting Pretty November 22, 2011 at 4:53 pm #

    Oh. and EXCUSE ME!!!! I failed to mention that I also use clothing. This was a request from my customers so they could see the necklaces length. I’m sure you are aware that many shops do this as well. I use clothing simply because I have yet to find a dressform that I like. PERIOD!!!!!

    You people are sick!!!!!

    Why don’t you cowards have the balls to share your shops here. I would love to take a peek. Or are you scared that I will be able to find shops out there that look exactly like yours!!!!!!

    Sick freaks!!!!

  63. Hollie Moore November 22, 2011 at 5:33 pm #

    Nesting Pretty:
    I have not commented because this seems like a big cat fight to me. I rarely comment, but when I do, I show who I am. I noticed that no one gives their shop name either. I think if they are going to complain at least be candid about it. As far as your shop, i at first thought it was just a coincidence that your names where the same and your shops where similar. However, when EllaBella statred showing exact items that you have and the other shop has, it did not really seem that way anymore. there is a lot of repeat stuff on Etsy, but some of your stuff is an exact copy of the others. So, I am still up in the air about it. I really find the integrity of Etsy to be important to me as my shop is sucessful. I mix vintage with a little recycling of jewelry. I really hate resellers and this copy cat stuff is not nice either. I see Etsy Admin. really cleaning up house on the resellers. I know new ones open everyday, but I do see an effort on their part. Many shops that I have reported as obvious resellers have been shut down now. Before, it was not the case. I love Etsy and find it a great way to work from my home and do something that I enjoy. Best of luck to all.

    Hollie

  64. Nesting Pretty November 22, 2011 at 6:06 pm #

    Thanks Hollie. But in all fairness. Most of the items that EllaBella shared were not exactly the same. but similar in style. I admit that a few might have been exact. but there are other shops on Etsy with lots of exact items. In fact there are many shops out there with exact items as mine that have just opened, but unlike the people here I am not calling them copycats

    What I see is that Tamar and I have the same style and are putting jewelry together using the same supplies. Period!!! I imagine we both buy from Etsy suppliers. At least I do because I am a huge supporter of all Etsy.

    I too love Etsy and choose it to be home with my family while also being able to have an outlet for myself outside of caring for my family!

    Congrats to you on your success. I hope it continues.

    How on earth do you not consider yourself (or anyone else) to be a copycat when you COPY SOMEONE ELSE’S WORK? I’m tellin’ ya – 7 beads instead of 8 does NOT make it uniquely yours. Yeah, I’m harping on that one thing, but it’s so obviously the perfect example. “See, I used 7 instead of 8 beads, I’m NOT copying, I’m NOT.”

    Sheesh. grow up, quit your whining, take your lumps and accept that you are copying and move on.

    No amount of your protestations will change what we see with our own eyes.

    Own up to your actions. If you don’t like what we’re saying, ignore us 🙂 If you didn’t believe our opinions had merit, you wouldn’t be here posting so aggressively, unprofessionally and without much maturity.

    If you truly, in your heart and soul, BELIEVE that what you are doing is right, then ignore us and move on.

    You do a lot of good works in your non-business life for your community, so why don’t you complete your package as a person and continue your business, but in an ethical manner.

    You copy others. You copy others. You copy others.

    You copy other people’s hard work, imagination, creativity and talent.

    DO YOUR OWN THING GIRL! Just because you say “other people do it!” doesn’t make it right. Didn’t your mother teach you that? What are you teaching your children? That it’s all right to copy in school because it’s okay to do in business?

    Not everyone who posts here has a shop. Some of us had shops at one time and closed them because of people like you and of course, other issues, but you are one of the problems.

    Do we buyers not count? BTW: nobody here has to post using their real name or post their shop name. It’s prudent. Why do we need you stalking what do sell so you can copy our art, too? Not a chance sweetheart.

    Do the right thing.

  69. Almira November 23, 2011 at 11:33 am #

    I am do not understand why you guys keep mention Nest Pretty Things as an original and sole creator of that style.
    The things that she does are gorgeous. However, they are overpriced, and you are all in love with the pictures (she was a photo stylist you know) not the products. The only thing that she does in glued flower cabochons and cameo in a setting. There is not craftsmanship there. Besides, back in 2006 there was an artist in Etsy, Lara Lewis, and Nest Pretty Things might have been inspired by her designs and if you look in European magazine there are a lot of designs just like her. Everybody is taking inspiration from others.
    She also stated in most of her pieces that they are “handmade” as there are “handmade” by her. However, when I did a quick search in Etsy supplies there are made in China not by her.
    For example,
    1. The Tassel Pendant Necklace
    http://www.etsy.com/listing/82409941/the-tassel-pendant-necklace-choose-your?ga_search_query=tassel&ga_search_type=user_shop_ttt_id_5142300

    This is a mass production product from Bead Supplies and they even suggest a design that is the one that she did. http://www.etsy.com/listing/81231295/fa-fl-03003-fabric-pom-pom-m-pink-2-pcs?ga_search_query=pom%2Bpom&ga_search_type=user_shop_ttt_id_5157577.
    Also, a very similar one is available in Anthropologie.

    2. Yellow Russian Doll Charm Necklace
    She said that this is “my own custom made Russian doll oval cameo (20mm long) with a yellow background and blue with red doll>
    http://www.etsy.com/listing/80985128/yellow-russian-doll-charm-necklace

    This is a mass production from Trendy Supplier: http://www.etsy.com/listing/77010539/russian-doll-painting-pendant-charm-1?ref=sr_gallery_11&ga_search_query=russian+doll+pendant&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_ship_to=US&ga_page=4&ga_search_type=supplies&ga_facet=supplies
    I am not defending Nesting Pretty, but everybody in Etsy has the same things because they are buying from the same suppliers. Just let people live and work!
    Just my two cents.

  70. kitten November 23, 2011 at 9:04 pm #

    @Almira

    Regarding the tassel pendant necklace, to me it is handmade by Nest Pretty Things. She states the description of the tassel as tulle, the supply description states it’s organza. Tulle and organza aren’t the same. I really like the necklace she made. Yes the supply suggests a design, but how else would you use the tassel?? It looks like the tassels you hang on a hook that have been around forever so the supply seller didn’t invent it. NPT’s tassel looks a lot better than the supply in my opinion.

  73. Tamar November 24, 2011 at 1:44 pm #

    Hello everyone, this is Tamar from Nest Pretty Things, just to put things straight my name is really Tamar, my shop has been around since 2006 and was called Nest Pretty Things on the banner from day one, on Oct 18 2011 Etsy finally allowed us sellers to change our shop names and that is why both our shop names were changed on the same day, hence the confusion. This person from Nesting Pretty has been copying my designes forever, I get tons of mailes about this and Etsy also knows about this and promised to look into it, I confronted her at first but then decided to just ignore it, it’s too frustrating and upsetting and maybe I should just see it as a compliment?
    anyway, I have a blog where you can see all my original designs and how my shop evolved over the years
    http://www.nestdecorating.typepad.com
    also my flickr pages with all my work

    @Nesting Pretty: Since Tamar has never contacted you, I take it you contacted her. Why, asking if she wants to in halfs on supplies? lol

  78. Tara November 29, 2011 at 9:34 pm #

    I think a lot of us are forgetting that there is a reason most of us are here other than anything negative. There is a reason that Etsy has a “report this shop” button on every shop’s profile. I won’t argue with the no life part. But I will say that there is something to be said for simple basic right and wrong and sometimes something is just wrong and needs to be confronted. And the one confronting is not evil … they are moral. Sticking up for wrong is NEVER wrong. As long as righteous judgment is used and not selfish.

    I wonder why people get it in their minds that its not okay to defend right… but these are the same people that are against bullying and animal cruelty and any other number of injustices. Wrong is wrong people.

    If we were complaining about a site like Ebay or something that has no specific qualifications… it might change things a little. They have tons of resellers and the thing is, their resellers don’t try to pass themselves off as handmade – or other infractions.

    Right is right and wrong is wrong and surely there is a fragment left that understands that and cares and is not going to be bullied into going along with wrong just because some people don’t like it. If someone allows wrong to be done, for whatever reason- they are no better than the offender.

  79. Ruthless December 23, 2011 at 3:07 pm #

    Honestly, almost all of the stuff in BOTH shops is glueing stuff to other stuff. You aren’t making those pieces yourself, you’re buying them in bulk (mostly) and then assembling them-how can you get pissed off that someone else is doing the same thing? Gluing cabochons to hair pins is NOT a new or original idea no matter what the plastic part is

  80. Junk Collector February 4, 2012 at 2:33 pm #

    This is hysterical! Fighting over Made in China products and woman who just superglue the garbage together and hide the China junk with beautiful pictures. LMAO~! A sucker is born every day, and it looks like they are all shopping at these two china inspired shops.

  81. kim yong il February 19, 2012 at 11:20 am #

    Tamar, why would you see it as a compliment that someone is copying a procedure to glue a resin/plastic//whatever cabochon onto a piece of base metal crap? You aren’t even using real silver or gold. There are some 3,000 listings for those plastic cabochons. How many shops sell the same design, the same idea, the same glued on flower resin onto Asian base metal findings? I bet over hundreds of shops are. Now, if you were a metal smith or made lampwork beads, then you would have a case. Heck, you can even by your own molds for that stuff. they are a dime a dozen! Gluing things together you buy overseas does not an artist make. Firing up a torch and melting your own sterling silver into designs does. All Nest Pretty Things is, is a good marketing fluff company selling premade glued together pieces, pieces probably made in Asian child sweat shops. Both of you are like the WalMart of Etsy, just with better pictures. So Tamar, you didn’t come up with the idea to begin with. So where did YOU ‘steal’ the idea from?

    Finding plasticy flower cabochons on Etsy – 3.00 for 100 cabochons
    Finding base metal findings from Asia – .99 for 1,000 barrettes
    Investing in state of the art camera equipment and selling .50 barrette for $20USD. Priceless

  82. Lydia March 12, 2012 at 12:17 pm #

    Kim young il, lol. So true!
    EVERYONE please stop slandering people. It’s not your place! You aren’t inspired to make what you make? Did you create the style you make? No!
    Famous clothing and jewelry designers make similar pieces constantly! If they didn’t we wouldn’t have many choices or stores!
    Like they say on project runway,” if you’re gonna copy, make it better,”
    When you put your designs out there, you’re agreeing to the chance that you might inspire someone.

    I have been googling etsy copycat issues and complaints. I’m doing so because I’m wanting to blog about the other side of this… The accused and supposed copy cats.
    I am also a jewelry maker and in school for fashion and merchandising.
    I sell at a few local boutiques and had met a fellow boutique artisan a few years back. She’s recently been getting etsy hate mail calling her a copy cat!
    This girl has been selling at local boutiques for years but only started selling on etsy a few months ago.
    Her shop is newer so now she’s labelled a copy cat. It’s sad! I’ve known her work for years!
    I know she’s not copying and neither do her friends and customers. So now what? Is her character and store damned? You people are ready to slander people?
    Are you really ready to ruin someone’s shop when you can’t prove a thing?
    Also, I looked at all these supposed copied pieces and photo styling lol. I’ve seen this same photo styling a thousand times!!!
    It’s very very common!
    As for the pieces that are obviously similar…. Guess what, I’ve seen those type pieces a million times too.
    There’s only so many supplies you can get on etsy that fit this type style of jewelry!
    Someone’s BOUND to come up with the same thing!!!
    I see designs I have sitting in boutiques right now! I can even prove mine have been in the boutique longer than the same pieces on etsy, but obviously they didn’t copy me cause they don’t live here and dont know what I’ve made!
    Nest Pretty Things, no one likes to hear drama. I would never buy from a seller who is childish and caught up in name calling. As kids and teenagers we learn to deal with people, I guess some don’t learn this.
    When someone copies me…I say, “That’s how fashion evolves!” I also say, “Well, it’s tacky to say anything, and what if I’m wrong?”
    Plus, customers know what they want, it’s their decision who they buy from.
    The styles of nesting pretty and nest pretty things are so common…so what’s the issue even if something’s really similar?
    The style is too common, etsy will NEVER do anything about it. They might get upset at you all and nest pretty things for bothering them over something so stupid!

    Lastly…
    Great minds think alike, especially when there’s limited supplies out there for this kind of jewelry! Lol.
    This copy cat stuff is silly. Etsy does have competing shops… That’s business!
    Like nesting pretty said…
    Let’s see your shops! I’d also love to see if you have similar or same pieces as someone else out there!

    Btw…. So long as the supplies from china are quality and lead free….who cares!
    The U.S. charges unreasonable prices most of the time. That’s the truth.
    Also, if you buy on Etsy… The seller is most likely buying their supples from china!

    I have loved & appreciated nest pretty things for many years. She is definetly a favorite shop of mine for a long time . I just took a look at this other shop you mention . Perhaps she has been inspired by the other shop. I so do not care . Her products are beautiful . I have been outrages when i felt copied years ago . My mom who is an artist & been through it for years told me – copying is the highest form of flattery . She clearly admires that style & I like them both . I feel bad if you made her feel bad with this post. Nasty attacking, intolerant attitudes just bum me out . They are both beautiful & there is enough room for us all . Haven’t you noticed everyone copies everyone on etsy – in the world ect . It’s not uncommon to be inspired by another & then make it your own . If someone hasn’t made it all the way their own yet – they are finding it by doing what they are inspired by .

    We know Tammy of Nesting Pretty personally. She is a mother, a cancer survivor and a truly wonderful human being to the children of our neighborhood. She and her husband are very real, honest, down to earth people who possess sincere heart.

    To the degree that some here do not understand business is mind boggling. To say this ‘original shop’ has been copied, stalked etc. Oh please! Anyone who has been shopping similar items for decades would laugh heartily at this accusation.

    Point being be thankful there is competition in the market place and be aware that timeless designs have existed for centuries.

    Just as JC Penny has/had a Sears and McDonalds has A Burger King so too will Nest Pretty Things have A Nesting Pretty and vice versa. It will always be so.

    Be glad you have such a choice! Be happy the market place is competitive to this degree for all of our sake.

    I sincerely wish the best for BOTH shop owners. No harm and no foul has been commited here in my humble opinion. There is more than enough room for both shops in our wonderful marketplace. Viva la business!
