Default "Not stamping"

This is not related to stamping, but I check the forums almost every day. Have you noticed the Darling tunics in the pop-up ads for Zulily are NEVER for sale on their website?!!

I haven't noticed that particular thing, but....When I first heard of Zulily, I tried to order some baby clothes for my daughter who was expecting. I didn't like the idea that they had such a time frame for filling orders. It was very confusing to me.


Now, I just order baby stuff (and lots of other things) on Amazon, and it comes in two days, usually for a good price and free shipping with Prime.

Careful of them, Shein and others like them - truly remarkable number of complaints and some say they're a huge scam, and are all one company in China. Here's one review from BuzzFeed, and it's one of the better ones (and is bad):

Yes - most FB ads are Chinese ripoffs. I've been burned once.

I will say that zulily definitely has offices in the US because I company I do some things for has been contacted by them in an effort to get their products on there.


But the tunic thing drives me nuts

I hate the idea of anyone here getting ripped off. It would be nice to have them gone... There were advertisers on a manufacturer's website I used to moderate for that would be banned for either inappropriate, religious or highly misleading ads. But I realize every website handles these decisions differently.

BTW, I x'ed out their ad; google asked why, I selected and answer, and other ads took its place.

I've downloaded AdBlock Plus for IE. It works really well and it's free.

You will have to download it to each browser you have separately.
