    On the day after Xmas, this seller gave to me – at least 200 violations of the TOU, not to mention federal law:

    Besides being a fake, no where near vintage. LV’s Cherry Blossom line came out in 2002.

    Wow, they claim there are only 2-3 of each making them so special! 🙂 That is why I have counted at least 4 of these so far….. http://www.etsy.com/transaction/67157844

    I am not sure why the first shop on the list is considered a reseller? Where do they buy their items if they (supposedly) don’t make them?

    Number two on the list — definite reseller. We have all seen these items before!

    The leather bracelets in shop number three are very different from the ones in shop number one. Possibly a reseller, but if they are adding charms (like an owl) to a factory made leather bracelet, Etsy will allow it.

    The ‘unique and rare’ BS in shop number 4 suggests reselling, but I will have to find their sources to be sure.

    No wholesale surces for shop 5, but I doubt they make the tiaras.

    I don’t think KesTdesigns is a reseller. The How-to s for her bracelets are in tons of magazines. Her earrings are Etsy legal since she is attaching the focals to the earwires or chain.

    Kyeehy: Reseller.
    CuteCute: Ish…everytime I see someone shipping from HK I immediately assume reseller. That’s bad (of me).
    Number 4, because I’m too lazy to copy and paste. See above comment. I think reselling.
    Number 5: Like LDW said, I doubt the tiaras are handmade. As for the rest of her store, IDK.

    and for fun, I will add this store: http://www.etsy.com/shop/CoolPartyCreations

    CoolParty is probably not violating any copyrights. Shops like that purchase template software, and the folks that design the templates (in theory, anyway) pay the owners for licensed character illustrations. I would guess that customizing the templates to order is Etsy legal as handmade. Same deal as the ‘personalized’ children’s books using licensed characters that include your kid in the story — I know I’ve seen shops selling these on Etsy.

    Thank you for clarifying that, LDW. 🙂

    Jewelery is not my thing, but “chick” jewelry is for chicks, or for people who think they are CHIC? Is that like having Klass?

    Interesting feedback from this shop:

    All the items in gemandmetal’s shop clearly say they ship from China. And no jewelry artisan who makes their own items, and ships from the USA, would charge those prices. The cheap import jewelry does so well on Etsy because Etsy is working hard to focus on the lower age range of its target market (students rather than young educated women in the professions). Little chickies that say ‘cheap cheap cheap’.

    In regards to GemAndMetal’s shop- I scrolled through the sold items and here are the disturbing stats: 1528 sales with feedback from 195 customers shows only 8% bothered to leave feedback but thats how much she’s left for her buyers – perhaps a little shilling going on? 1100 sales in 90 days, 600 of those sales in the 30 days of Nov 25 to Dec 25, with 47 sales on Dec 12 alone. Thats an average of 20 sales a day, at conservatively approximately $12.50 per sale equals $250 per day in sales. Thats $7500 in sales in 30 effin days! This is why I pulled all the jewelry from my shop because I can’t keep compete with this shit. And it’s exactly why etsy lets this type of shop stay open $$$$$$$$$$.

    I have never heard of ‘natural gemstones’ called jade quartz and turquoise quartz.

  13. Really? December 29, 2011 at 5:47 am #

    Here’s a re-seller for sure. I have been to East Africa and you can get ALL this stuff in the gifts shops there.


  14. Life During Wartime December 29, 2011 at 11:11 am #

    I think she means ‘tell me which one you like, and I’ll order one’ or ‘pull one out of the package’. Etsy has really let the resellers take over during the last 3 months or so. I think things have gotten worse, but that could be me imagination?

  15. Really? December 29, 2011 at 12:51 pm #

    Not only is this shop a re-seller, but they are saving themselves a lot of listing fees by putting multiple items as one listing, then telling you to “tell me which one you want”.

    There is also no profile and no location given. Etsy should make it mandatory that the true geographical location is given in the shop description. Customers have a right to know where their money is going and where their “hand-crafted” item is coming from.

  16. Life During Wartime December 29, 2011 at 1:30 pm #

    The listings say the items are shipped from United States. If the items were made in another country, then the shop is reselling. And I think they are reselling.

    Lots of shops have the ‘tell me which one you want’ language in their listings. I consider that confusing and to be fee avoidance.

  17. Really? December 29, 2011 at 2:19 pm #

    I do feel that that the location should be required to be stated on the left side bar under the shop name. As a customer, I want to see where the seller is located before I start looking at thir individual listings, and not have to hunt for it.

    idea2lifestyle and spophiaclothing have been reported a million times and they are still here!!!!

  19. Really? December 30, 2011 at 5:54 am #

    Can someone explain how feedback is calculated? How can there be 110 neutral and 37 negatives and yet they have 100% positive as a rating?


  20. Life During Wartime December 30, 2011 at 1:54 pm #

    I think neutral FB doesn’t subtract from your postive score. The negatives are much less than 1 percent of her total FB, so maybe that doesn’t count, either.

    Possible resellers? All these shops look almost the same to me.

    All of them have similar photography style, same type of material and similar designs.
