I never realized that etsy had some many resellers. I thought it was a site of real artists, till I went to buy some earrings. Look at this person,
This is Earringchest, all items that are made in Bali, but the person here claims they carved them. I just happened to find them on this website.
They are a wholesale shop selling the same earrings for $1-$2. What a rip to sell on etsy and say you made it. I looked at more shops and found, wow, look at that. The same people are selling same earrings and even make clothing that are all over ebay and selling it for 3-10 times more saying they made it. They are selling $1000 a day doing this. Looks like a great living, but a bum sale for people wanted to buy handmade goods. So, maybe etsy has a few real artists, but not many. Read the profiles. Etsy is selling a lot of stainless steel, something you cannot make in your home???

The shop is actually called -- TheEarringChest

Wow you realized this too!

TheEarringChest and ThaiSaket are as bad as they get, They claim to be handmade items but they are not. The earrings all come from a wholesaler in bulk (I have been to the manufacturer's website) and the clothing also comes from a large wholesaler called which is in thai but the exact clothing can be seen on there. If any of you can help report these sites to Etsy and get the cheaters booted, That would be greatly appreciated. So many of us are working hard actually hand making items. It just makes me sick that these 2 stores are making a endless amount of money reselling under false pretenses. Thank you :0)

Hello! I'm following and watching and reporting. What sales I have are form buyers with no Etsy history. In other words, I'm pulling in my own with SEO. Glad to be aboard here.
