42 ‘Kitsy Lane’ Reviews
Watch out this company is a scam!
Kitsylane is a scam! They lure people in with claims that they will make money selling their jewelry when the only one making the money is the guy running the scam. They now have a new scam veiled as a "contest", except when you enter the "code" for a $100 credit, the code suddenly doesnt work. Save yourself the time and trouble and just stay away.
I can't believe it
I can't believe how many people don't know what a pyramid scheme is..
Educate yourself people, nothing is free, this boutique is a sham. You're being offered little pay for loads of work and selling out whoever you sell to, especially if they follow in your foot-steps and join under you in the pyramid scheme.
Just run away from this. I doubt your friends would want cheap costume jewelry after waiting forever on shipping. Great surprise, huh?
Craft something yourself, sell it on esty, repeat.
Bauble Bar on a Pyramid Scheme
This company is a joke! Sadly, the financial backers are all actually successful business people. I know because I happen to be related to one of them. When he told me about it (because I legitimately work in the jewelry industry) I told him it looks like Bauble Bar on a pyramid scheme - because it is. Sad. And the fact that they compare themselves to Etsy is a joke - they could not be farther from Etsy. What they sell is mass produced crap. I get it - America loves cheap crap. But you get what you pay for. Etsy is individual designers and merchants selling handmade and vintage items. Kitsy Lane is cheap, mass produced crap. Just remember folks - you get what you pay for. Enjoy it for the one or maybe two times you'll get to wear it. Also, just thought I should let all you boutique owners out there know you're getting ripped off on commission: I guarantee you this crap is selling at margins of at least 300-400% MINIMUM. So your 25% commission is a joke and insult. Go out and get a real job. Stop letting the rich get richer by sitting on their lazy @$$&$.
Waste of time
My mother in law ordered from my boutique in May. She NEVER received her order and kitsy lane would NOT answer me or her about what was going on with her shipment. Here it is August and they are still giving us the run around about where the order is. No commission. No shipments. TOTAL SCAM.
Decided not to open a boutique
After reading all these reviews (which I am glad I found before putting my time and effort into this business opportunity) I have decided not to open a boutique. It sounds like a nightmare or something that someone may be able to do if they don't have anything better to do. I already have a full-time job and plan on returning to school. I just don't have the time or energy for something that doesn't work. It looked too good to be true... Thanks to everyone for sharing their experience. I appreciate all of you.
