The recession has become an interesting time period especially for those seeking to switch careers and market themselves as artisans. I’m not knocking the trend as I am a full support of it in the form of my jewelry collection, Hurricane by Jane L.L.C.
Like thousands of others, I have opted to list my products on ETSY, the site that features everything “handmade.”During my year on the site, I have seen plenty of great items listed on the site and only on occasion have I discovered things that have made me shudder in fear and break out in laughter. Now, thanks to Regretsy.com the search for frightening objects d’art and style have been compiled into one stop shopping at this irreverent web space.
Style is subjective, but bad taste is always out of fashion. Some truly repugnant items include:
Corn Poo Soap on a Rope, a bargain at $5:
Fish in a Squirrel Suit Taxitermy a lux find at $350:
Regretsy.com only has four pages of postings at this point, but I see a huge future for this website. Honestly, this posting has nothing to do with “Pear Shapely” ladies, except it made this one want to share the insanity with others.
My only hope is that they keep on keeping on and that none of my work ends up sandwiched between a “Catnip Fetus Toy in Pink” and a “Pokeman Menstrual Pad.”
