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

    best comment ever goes to stiffler’s mom!

    It looks to me like she thinks she’s selling on EBay. Or maybe a garage sale…

  4. Kori Houghton May 21, 2012 at 2:40 pm #

    Exactly! Seller thinks Etsy’s handmade categories are the same ones used for selling nonvintage decor junque on Ebay. Some of the framed pieces are signed, and not by the seller. Not handmade.

    Just. Plain. Junk.

    How do you know she doesn’t paint the cups and glasses that are personalized? Have you seen them somewhere before?

  8. Sickofetsywhores May 22, 2012 at 2:46 am #

    If she does paint the cups, those are the only legal items in her shop.

    Love the braless corpse they have featured now!

    Anyone else being over run with BOTS?
    It’s insane at Etsy right now, Favoriting ( heart ) Bots to bring attention to Pinterest Marketers…Treasury Bots to falsely add views to treasury. What the hell is going on over there?

  11. Karana May 22, 2012 at 2:51 pm #

    Okay well, the leathersachel seems fine. I did some more research into it. http://the.leathersatchel.co/ Sorry! They look indentical though! Couldn’t help but be suspicious!

  12. A May 22, 2012 at 2:59 pm #

    If the item says upcycled it is usually painted, these etsy sellers buy or have on hand several vintage items that is brought back to life to go with our decor we have now. There are so many of the same items on etsy that this seller has as well, if you dont like the items then dont buy it and honestly do not just assume things if you have a question ask the seller and the personalized glasses are made by hand and designed with high quality vinyl that is waterproof maybe you should read the listings a little closer before you assume things.

    I am so tired of spray painted crap. It’s handmade Etsy legal but doesn’t mean I have to be nice about it.

  14. Sickofetsywhores May 22, 2012 at 4:51 pm #

    A, tell me how she upcycled these, since you seem to know all about the crap in this shop.


  15. Yellshe May 22, 2012 at 5:14 pm #

    Sickofetsyw’s did you take a good look at the framed artwork… not one of them has the same signature, and they are all signed (not by the seller). That should be good for a laugh.

  16. Sickofetsywhores May 22, 2012 at 6:14 pm #

    A couple of them look like framed wallpaper. I’m guessing she frequent Savers or Goodwill.

  17. Kori Houghton May 22, 2012 at 6:36 pm #

    A, no one called out any of the decorated drinkware. A few of the metal items may have been repainted by the seller, dunno. All the rest of the listings linked in the callout were not made by, or altered by, the seller. These are commercial products less than 20 years old.

  18. Funny Bird May 22, 2012 at 7:25 pm #

    The new scourge of Etsy.


  19. Stiffler'sMom May 23, 2012 at 5:02 am #

    The thing is, she makes not mention of how the items are upcycled and they do not appear to be repainted. This seller is a scammer and a liar and should be removed from etsy.

  20. Sickofcupcakes May 23, 2012 at 7:57 am #

    Oh please.

  21. A May 24, 2012 at 2:19 am #

    I don’t know much about the shop
    Just reading the listings and looking at products. I have seen other shops with much more illegal items maybe this person didn’t tag correctly or something or doesn’t know all the rules you never know I would say they are a liar or scammer that a bit harsh to say. I am all about following rules but some people are just leaving rude comments and that is never nice.

  22. Sickofcupcakes May 24, 2012 at 2:43 am #

    Those of us who actually do follow the rules and still get treated like crap by Etsy are frustrated.

  23. EtsyGivesMeCramps May 24, 2012 at 7:00 am #

    Get over it, A. This isn’t the Etsy forums.

  24. Kori Houghton May 24, 2012 at 9:00 am #

    A, if you cannot bother to even read the rules, you shouldn’t be selling on the venue. Every time ahindle78 listed one of those thrift store items as handmade by her, she was deceiving potential customers. There are rules against intentionally misleading buyers on all venues, not just Etsy.

  25. Sickofcupcakes May 24, 2012 at 11:54 am #

    Kiss my ass crampy.

  26. Life During Wartime May 24, 2012 at 12:04 pm #

    On the FP right now:
    Is this shop licensed to use the image, I wonder?

  27. CDC May 24, 2012 at 7:48 pm #

    What a train wreck!

  28. Sian May 25, 2012 at 3:32 am #

    The most tasteless case of image theft I’ve seen: “Katie Dudley” favorited one of my items.


    She has over 6000 *pages* of favorites. Not bad for someone who was murdered four years ago — Compare Katie’s profile picture with the woman here:


  29. Funny Bird ( unfunny situation ) May 25, 2012 at 5:06 am #

    I found her in my feed this morning!

    I think we need to go to MyCheapJobs(dot)com and spamm the sh*t out of them! I have reported, this is just SICK!

  30. Sian May 25, 2012 at 6:35 am #

    And “Katie” has already been deleted: well done Etsy!

  31. Marky May 25, 2012 at 6:51 am #

    That Katie Dudley fake is horrific…. but stealing dead peoples images is common! This shop seemd just a bit too homey-twee to me:


    …compare with…

    Grandpa on Porch 1976

  32. Funny Bird May 25, 2012 at 2:48 pm #

    New ONE! That was fast!


  33. Funny Bird May 25, 2012 at 4:05 pm #

    I am so sick of people who come to the forums to say how this type of preditory spamming is somehow a “good” thing, as if they are doing you a favorite by making your item they didnt even look at their 2859th of the day?
    Maybe they also have no problem with autobots working the treasury? Maybe they just like to argue & be a dick- who knows?!
    Spam, sucks. People who spam hoping you are desperate enough to try anything for a sale suck even more, but people who do all that using a murder victim as an avi are just evil.
    …AND….Etsy forums SUCK.

  34. Funny Bird ( less funny all the time ) May 26, 2012 at 9:15 am #

    After very minimal research I found MyCheapJobs and his other businesses, many of which are Auto Play Cheat sites for Online Gaming , “AutoPlay”. It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out who this spammer is & what he has in mind, and if Etsy doesnt get a handle on it any seller on Etsy can & will have that kind same kind of bot for 10.99, just like they can buy a bot to play Pogo games from them. THIS IS A NIGHTMARE.

  35. SlayBelles May 26, 2012 at 10:30 am #

    This item was featured in today’s etsy finds. Looks like another ecologogicamalibu situation, but that’s OK! Collectives are our friends. What’s wonky, though, is the actual listing. Only one listing in the shop, but each pic is for a different item. Not just a different color, a different item http://www.etsy.com/shop/brikabrakcolombia?ref=seller_info
    TOU violation, no?

  36. Life During Wartime May 26, 2012 at 3:08 pm #

    SlayBelles (luv your name!), the single listing with multiple items shown in images in that shop is not for any of the items shown. The description says to contact the seller to find out what is in stock. The listing is just an ad. TOU violation, yes!

  37. TheBargainBabe May 26, 2012 at 6:06 pm #

    I can not believe etsy features crap like that without vetting it. Did none of their employees get past first grade? Ugh.

  38. Hollie Moore May 26, 2012 at 6:13 pm #

    Here is the latest spam in my activity feed

  39. TheBargainBabe May 26, 2012 at 6:15 pm #

    and BTW I left a comment on the flirkr photo of “grandpa”…hopefully the guy whose twitter that is just also has teh etsy shop…and it isn’t some jerk stealing the photo.

  40. Pam Gari May 26, 2012 at 6:45 pm #

    THIS just came in an email from Etsy… “Good news, folks! Earlier this week we started rolling out a new billing structure. You will now only be charged $0.20 USD to list or renew an item, regardless of quantity. Fees for additional quantities will only apply when an item sells. It works like an auto-renew feature — when your item sells and you still have quantity left, your listing automatically renews for $0.20 USD. Add the true in-stock quantity of items in your shop and you’ll not only free up time you would have spent monitoring and renewing listings, but you’ll also make it easier for buyers who love more of a good thing!” Right. Real good news.

  41. yikes May 26, 2012 at 8:14 pm #

    thinks that anything that lame and pricey from colombia could possibly be anything to do with drugs or money laundering?

  42. Stiffler'sMom May 27, 2012 at 5:08 pm #


    Family is important. Integrity, not so much.

  43. Looseycaboosy May 29, 2012 at 1:44 pm #

    @ Stiffler’sMom I was Absolutely right! The only decent thing that Wisconsin pumps out of its state is Cheese, and you are a big part of that! 41 and a tattle tale! LOL I see you are bitter because You cannot get people to take your junk for free on CRAFTSTER! LOLLL Making Frida Shrines are soo Original! LOOOL http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?PHPSESSID=3ppvu0hfea6rbg2qn7lb61cn97&action=profile;u=40296 You gotten eaten and spit out. Bitterness is a like a disease and you are tainted

  44. Pam Gari May 29, 2012 at 2:29 pm #

    Um…Wisconsin is NOT IN Minnesota. And that shop looks like a Goodwill store in an expensive area got picked over and listed on Etsy. Personal opinion but I still don’t believe true handmade artisan craft should be tossed in with second hand junk. It’s kind of like going to an art gallery and finding a bunch of yard sale tables in between the sculptures and paintings…

  45. Kayley May 30, 2012 at 5:00 am #

    This blog is a travesty! You should ALL be ashamed, it takes a rotten egg to know one and all of you are the rottenest! You are ruining peoples lives! There are WAY more civil ways to handle these things! Only Nasty Mean Bitches do things this way. SICKENING


  46. Pam Gari May 30, 2012 at 2:22 pm #

    Really Kayley? NAME ONE. Or should we all just be “polite” and let the only real venue for artisans go down the shitter having been turned into another Ebay? People who try to cheat ruin their OWN lives, we just report what we find since Etsy seems to want to protect it’s FOOD, Rotten is when some greedy pig buys cheap from Alibaba and turns around and cuts the throats of honest craftspeople. The REAL travesty is that we are FORCED to do this here since Etsy refuses to enforce its own rules. OBVIOUS lies, (mis tagging,etc) mass produced crap, stealing photos of the DEAD. Which of these are you Kayley?

  47. Wolf June 4, 2012 at 8:35 am #

    @Pam Gari ‘Kayley’ is really Stephanie who is Prettywithinkinvites and was featured in the next entry here. She’s not only a reseller, she’s a copyright infringer as well.

  48. Miya June 4, 2012 at 9:24 am #

    Oh..Hey Stephi.
    Still hacking up other people’s art and stealing it? Stay classy.

  49. sickofetsyshit June 4, 2012 at 11:30 am #

    Stephanie Carpico of prettywithinkinvites.com and etsy is posting as kayley

    Stephanie Carpico of prettywithinkinvites.com and etsy is selling cards using other people’s art but CLAIMING it is her own

    Stephanie Carpico of prettywithinkinvites.com and etsy has a serious problem with ethics and copyright infringement and out-and-out stealing other people’s work and selling it as her own – see dozens of examples in her sold items on etsy

    Stephanie Carpico of prettywithinkinvites.com and etsy has a serious lack of integrity as evidenced by her usage of other people’s art and photography, slapping it on a Vistaprint card and selling it as HER OWN WORK – AS HER OWN GRAPHIC DESIGN ORIGINALS

    Stephanie Carpico of prettywithinkinvites.com and etsy … well, just pretty much has big problems.

  50. Pam Gari June 4, 2012 at 2:57 pm #

    Oh, “prettywithothersdesigns” tried to trick us?! For shame FOR SHAME Ms Carpico. I wonder if Vistaprints lawyers know about her ugly thieving practices ? Pathetic whinging crook that shits where she eats.
