I do not normally join in these petty squabbles as i left the playground a long time ago! but now this is affecting me personally..so i feel i have a say now...
Amanda (owner of tagger scraps) has been the target of a hate campaign recently... the latest stunt of someone hacking into the store and deleting everything..is beyond shocking!
1st there was some blogs bashing her, and various bashing emails floating about...its shocking enough the things that were said on these blogs!
I am sorry IF some designers got a rough deal, although I am still waiting on that PROOF that you said we can all read if we email....
I emailed asking for proof...received nothing....????
so to me these are unfounded allegations....so all i have to go on is ..
1.someone who is trashing Amanda through blogs and various sharing groups!
2.my own personal experience....
I have been a designer at Amanda's store for months...and I have NEVER had a problem with not being paid the money I was due.
then i woke up yesterday to the Store being down....thought maybe it was a technical hitch..emailed Amanda asking her what was up?......then we get an email from Amanda informing us that Taggers Scraps got hacked and everything was deleted!
Amanda had backed it up so its back up again for now....but she is throwing in the towel and taggers scraps will be closing.... so that's it... now we have to find a new home to sell our designs, I was happy there, had no problems there, but now this.....so to be honest do i really want to?
so think people before you jump on that mob mentality band wagon, just think for a minute of the lives that you are affecting, we are real people with our own struggles and battles....
because of your personal vendetta against Amanda, which had nothing to do with me or the other 20 or so designers..we now have to move stores or give up?
i hope you are pleased with your victory...merry christmas
