A little shopping…

June 3, 2008

My best friend was shopping for a new bag… she is addicted to bags, the really nice kind! Well, as she was browsing this site in search of a bag, something very familiar on the bottom caught her eye… and she was so excited and in shock to see it was my Cakies crowns!!!

Of course, she emailed me and was “freaking” out about seeing the crowns! I mean how random is that, that she would be shopping and come across a rolling advertisement with my crowns on it, that link to another site. Well, this site Yokiddo, I guess found my crowns and their site is about cool things for babies and kids, but instead of saying my “by Cakies” it says “by Sweet Rosy,” which is the name of the crown. Oh well… maybe I will just email them and correct them. Nevertheless, I was excited to see my crowns on another cool site!

Thanks Lin for doing a little shopping and randomly discovering this!

  • At first I was afraid that they weren’t your crowns… I just read a post by another artist whose work was being sold by someone not licensed to do so. Your things are so cute… it’s no wonder that they are popping up everywhere!!!

    That sucks! 🙁

    bunny b- yeah it sucks they had the name wrong, but it still linked to my shop, so that was good!

    bethany- yes, it is sad how people steal someone else’s idea… i have already found a seller on etsy that has re-done my Cakies clip and it looks the same, but messier! it made me sad. then, i found out this seller, also has some stuff at a boutique i sell at, in which the owner is my friend, but didn’t know this seller was a copier, and the owner told me she remembered this lady buying one of my clips… which made me even sadder!

    but i think God takes care of it in the end, but it is still frustrating.
