what do u mean? can share ur story?

Firstly, I am well aware of some sellers that sell things from tao bao. Its just business and they will sell at a "reasonable price". I try to steer away from those unless i want some "disposable" fashion item.

ok back to my story  :'(

I frequent popup events and was out shopping for a nice piece of earring for my upcoming meeting up with one of my bff that I have not meet for months.

Went back to search for some from my recent fav store that sell "handmade pieces". (Or in my dream... :'(). The seller claim it for herself both online and in person......

*backflash*
Meetup with friend. Have a nice dinner. Everything seems to go well..... hairdo, makeup, cloths, shoes, jewellery. Until I tried to showoff and claim how nice my recent purchases is. My bff is those who does not do small talk and is pretty direct. Told me that this is probably from tao bao, no offense.

*after*
Out of curiosity, did a check and realise that the exact same pieces that I bought can be purchases at a friction of the price. Worst thing is, the exact picture is use down to the details....... u scroll thru the pictures in the instagram post above (I believe you need to open in instagram app)........ I tried play spot the difference multiple times due to disbelief.... Isnt it copyright infringement as well?!OMG.... sell items that claims handmade herself and also use photos from taobao 100%... OMG... *faintz*


Can't imagine who in my office notices n never tell me........

YES!!! My dear... And that was what it fumes me!!!.... It was advertise on her website that it is locally handmade by her. When I found her stall in one of the local handmade craft market. I asked her in person did she made them herself, she said YES! ....So thinking of supporting local designer, I shall buy from her to show my support... Only to find out it was from Taobao!!!

To even think that I praised her for being a local designer and taking such good photos.... Photos were taken straight from Taobao too!!! :'( :'( :'(

I wonder how many other sellers in the local handmade market sells stuffs from Taobao and uses pics from Taobao AND CLAIMS CREDITS.... Now I lost my trust in supporting local designer(s). Is such a disgrace.  :'( :-[

Sad right?.....
