Interesting find!

So out of curiosity I searched for "Eiffel Tower Necklace" to see if anyone else was using the charm I used in my recent necklace.
Here is my listing:

Simple eiffel tower charm with a bright red heart, theme of "I love paris."
To my surprise, there were at least 10 other listings who had the SAME idea. I honestly don't think anyone copied anyone (I sure didn't!) But this is too funny:
1. http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=8942743
2. http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=9530523
3. http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=8331165
4. http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=9476350
5. http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=7515253
6. http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=8877636
7. http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=8192647

How weird is that? :P I guess great minds think alike!
PS - I posted this in the forums and one of the responders (another seller on Etsy) bought my necklace! Proof to all that the forums ARE a good marketing tool (I've sold countless items off of the forums! Just ... not the promotions section, haha.)

Very cute necklace! Yes, great minds do think alike sometimes, but it is the way they are made that makes them entirely unique.

I think great minds think alike too. I have come up with designs, thought I was being so unique and then saw the same design somewhere else. I love your eiffel tower necklace and I love Paris!
