Etsy seller Jennifer of FaeryCouture
went wild in the Forums about a notification received from Etsy about items newer than 20 years old listed as vintage in her shop.
She started 3 threads to whine about her cruel handling by the Marketplace Integrity minions:
using the tragic loss of a pet as a variation of ‘the dog ate my homework’ excuse for not following the rules.
Other than providing a train wreck to gawk at, I found the history of repeated vntage violations in her shop interesting.  It shows how Etsy wastes sellers fees with gentle and very s-l-o-w handling of obvious rule breaking.  Seriously, does Etsy need to send repeated messages to a shop selling as vintage unaltered items with date information in the listings?  FaeryCouture has been listing new items with dates in the listings as vintage for a while!
this one was listed as handmade toys, dated 2008
Currently listed new stuff with dates:
These items are only the dated collectibles.  There are plenty of listings for shoes and other wearables that look newish to me as well, and many items are described as ‘Victorian’ which clearly aren’t.  I am guessing maybe half of her current listngs are actually vintage?

    After that 3rd thread I’m not surprised they shut her stupid ass down. She was warned. Half of her stuff looked like garage sale fodder. 🙂

    When the callout was posted earlier today, her shop was still active. It’s been closed only a few hours.

    Lord have mercy heavens to betsy but I do believe that Faro disappeared in that 3rd thread as well. Clutch my pearls Chad Dickerson’s ass on a fuckstick WTF is going on? I am sick and tired of the fucking E-holes over on Etsy harrassing and fucking with the Etsy elite! I am so tired of it in fact that I saw this shit coming and got my own account shut down long ago as s how of solidarity. All I have left to do now is to blog about the unfairness of it all. THAT will show thos E-holes over on Etsy! You hear that Etsy? Go fuck yourselves with a mustache on a stick! Stop harassing people and starting conspiracies against people! And bring fucking Faro and all her friends back too while your at it because your site ain’t shit without ’em! Who will lead the newbies and cupcakes and show them the way? We were doing that shit for FREE you know! I can’t stand these know it all E-hole admin!

    Here’s another shop doing the same thing, report these items:
    She claims to makes almost all of the items (watch the tags, they are all incorrect) – the other she says she repaints, which she doesn’t

    Faro’s gone? Well, well.

    Is Faro and OhFaro the same person? If so, was OhFaro muted? I can’t remember.

    It’s obvious that she doesn’t think much of etsy’s rule. It’s like running a red light…. it’s only illegal if you get caught. 🙂

    Wow I missed this one. And the first link shewhoruns posted is no longer for boots, but a pair of stilletos. She changed the item then which is also against TOU because it’s fee avoidance. smh
