Portobello is STILL selling unaltered bridal things which she buys (mostly) from weddingfactorydirect.com. And she is STILL using their wholesale picture too:
bought from here:
http://weddingfactorydirect.com/comb-5690-ivory.html ($12 with a suggested price of $29! HA!)
The picture is the same, only flipped 180 degrees to be “clever”. And you can see that the flower on the model head is identical to the wholesale pic shown.
There are so many things in her etsy shop that she bought at weddingfactorydirect and then removed some crystals or dangles and calls that “lovingly handmade in her studio”—combs, headbands, veils, earrings, etc. She was closed for awhile last year and apparently “coached” and given etsy’s blessing, because they ignore reports. I had to laugh at her recent negative feedback where the buyer was disappointed that she couldn’t alter the comb—no kidding!
