Several weeks ago a kind follower contacted me and shared that she felt, due to what she had seen on Etsy by following two sellers there and what she was seeing on eBay, that this seller could possibly be Magic Beans Reborn Babies on eBay.
Remember Magic Beans Nursery was using pictures that were not her own to gain custom orders and Etsy finally shut her down.
Well, I've been watching the two sellers that my follower shared with me and both of the sellers have auctions with either several locations or they have changed locations when they relisted the doll.
One seller has changed the ID since I began watching them.
I am going to post a lot of links here.
One of the first ones I came across:
Same seller, different location. She told me that she HAD been on vacation in Alabama.
I'm sorry, I simply do not buy that.
The seller wmdagumwj came on board in ~March of 2014~, at about the same time that Magic Beans Nursery got shut down on Etsy.
This seller is also in Anniston, Alabama. The ID name WAS
SouthernStyleStudio but changed to
coincidentally the ID name of that seller changed the same day wmdagumwj replied to my post here on the blog adding the ID name wmdagumwj to my blog post regarding Magic Beans Nursery.
Craftprincess keeps relisting dolls that were "sold" and is also
Interesting enough, craftprincess listed this doll as
The relisted the same SOLD doll as
Now, here is where it gets really good and how I can tie all of these sellers together and link them with Magic Beans Reborn Babies.
Because I had been communicating with "Anna" from Magic Beans Reborn Babies on Etsy, even though she is no longer permitted to sell on Etsy, I was still able to access her profile page.
On that profile page, you can see a picture of reborn baby "Joseph" as listed in the first link I have added to this page under the seller ID wmdagumwj:
And interesting enough, when the link comes up, it shows "SouthernEnvyDesigns" in the address bar.
I could not find anything like that on Etsy but it is a similar name to the first ID for craftprincess on eBay, SouthernStyleStudio.
And while I'm at posting links of shady sellers, let's add this one
I do not know yet if these are all related but just because this new reborner is using all prototype pictures to gain custom orders, and they are in also in a random place in Alabama, and the descriptions are similar to the other two sellers (especially when Anna was on Etsy), I am going to take a wild stab that they indeed are.
One thing I will say about the two eBay IDs mentioned here, they are using their own pictures.
My blog follower who shared with me said that she was watching the two sellers on Etsy, Magic Beans and another one she did not give me the name for and the pictures used were identical across the two sellers.
The eBay seller wmdagumwj currently does not have any items listed.
with locations in Dearborn Heights, Michigan and Oxford, Alabama.
I would love to hear your comments regarding these sellers.
