It's Mr. Danita.... Danita is still foaming and the mouth because we found out that someone is using her images in small notebooks and she asked me to write a post to warn everyone about counterfeit items. (She's afraid that all she can write now is swearing and curse words)
They are signed by "Doris' Garden"... Even had the nerve to change her signature!
So far, we've only found notebooks, but who knows what else is out there now. If you see more of these knockoff items, please let us know so we can report them and hopefully do something about it. They are being sold on Etsy and they started appearing today, we got the tip from a good Samaritan at Etsy.
We want to remind everyone that we are a small operation and we do not mass produce our items... We love handmade and that is reflected in our products.... Danita just asked me to ask you to support your independent artists =)
Please remember that our ONLY Official venues are:
Etsy, as danitashop (Prints, Originals, Jewelry and Handmade items)
eBay as danita.art (Prints and originals)
PFATT Marketplace (Originals)
Poppytalk Handmade (Prints & Originals)
Stampington's Artist Emporium (Originals)
And you may find her stuff also at:
Boutique Nana on Finland (Jewelry)
Birdie Design Studios In Californa (ACEO's)
Here's a few examples of what we've found so far:
Unfortunately, from now on, all the images released will be watermarked to prevent any more theft.... or at least not encourage it >=( .... Danita's Fellow Artists, check out places where your art may be sold, I hope your art has not been stolen and someone is pulling the same trick on you.
If you see something, shoot us an eMail so we can be on top of it.... Thanks in advance!
