Default should I say something???

Ok the gal that loves to use me for alot of her "inspiration" is now going to possibly change the name of her business.... to fancy schmancy.... My business name is Julia Schmoolia. Should I say something?? they are too similar. or am I crazy?? she is taking a poll on her fan page. I feel like I should email her and ask her to keep it the same "Bows by Us".... What to do???

and if you are reading this because you found this site. then I guess you know how I feel about it...

No I wouldn't say anything. Nothing is more unprofessiona then to harass other sellers. Just let it go and stop paying attention to competition.

Ditto. I mean you could talk to her but it may not matter. It does sound like a bit of a copy but she can name it anything she wants. I would just ignore it.

Got to say you should go and read my thread in the general business section from yesterday. This is how mine started out as well. Her old business had the word cute in it and a phrase that someone made on my FB page.

My advice to you is to ignore it and hide your page from her. It would seem like contacting a crazy copycat person will only make her copy you more as you can see from my post. Since me contacting this person regarding my copied pants she has now copied everything that I have. This person will do it out of spite. Best to think you don't care. People like this are obviously so filled with envy that they must be like you. It must be a sad and very pathetic life for them. As you can see I never mentioned this persons name in the thread at all and there she was front and center. Sorry to say but this person IS following you around all over the place. I fanned your page and your bows are really cute.

My other advice to you is that FB pictures and date stamps don't lie!! It is interesting when some people try to deny logic by saying you have not done something that pretty much is in black and white with a date stamp on it. It will clearly show that you did it first. In my book those who do these things should have it done right back to them, although you can see it just made her do it more. By the way don't be shocked when everything you sell she will sell for half the price because that will happen as well. Sorry it sucks and I am in the same boat.

I don't know all the history here but I don't think that the names are similiar but it obviously bothers you. I actually considered this several years ago because of "Fancy Nancy" and thought it was cute. However, I do think that if you say something to her that will bring it this issue to light and if she truly is a "stalker" then she might do it because she knows that she has struck a nerve. Just my two cents for what its worth.

I really think that if a persons products are quality, then that's all they need to be worrying about. None of us have the market cornered on any word or style or shape or anything like that. There are too many who came before us who have already done it and many many more who will come after us who will do it all again. If we choose to pay attention to the going on's in our own "home," do them well, do them consistently and do them professionally, then it's really not going to matter what someone else is doing. I tell my children all the time, if they would pay as much attention to what they themselves are supposed to be doing, as they pay to that of what their brother or sisters are doing, then they would be far ahead of the game.
