RegrETSY: 3 of the Worst Items on Etsy.com

The last time we caught up with Etsy, it was to praise how the start-up has created an online marketplace for crafty geniuses–small-time makers of beautiful objects who’d otherwise remain unknown.

But not everything on Etsy is great. Not by a long-shot. And that’s why there’s Regretsy. Tagline: “Handmade? Looks like you made it with your feet.”

Here’s just three of the gems they dug up, and their comments, in italics.

placenta

What exactly do you do with a handcrafted placenta? Do you leave itout on the coffee table? Do you put it in a shadowbox? Do you sprayEndust on it and run it over the piano? I mean you can’t even reallyplay with it. At least put some googly eyes on it. Then you can put itin a tree on Halloween.

fish squirrel

I rest my case.

plug rug

“Unused thrift store wool” sounds like the least sanitary thing in theworld to store a tampon in, short of a used coffee filter. Not tomention the fact that it attaches to your keys and sits in the bottomof your purse all day, which greatly increases the possibility ofgetting a piece of Dentyne in your uterus.

For the best, most NSFW, check out Regretsy.
