Not a bad profit margin…

Notice the mysterious ornament circles by the tail 🙂

    Another insane wedding thing. I do believe I saw this on regretsy a while back.

    They are “embellished” with Swarovski crystals. This is no different from charm on a chain jewelry, which people often sell at a ridiculous markup. Etsy legal.

    Not really a call out but the bridal categories are just so much WTF !

    The only thing I’d critique about her shop (other than the “I make things by gluing stuff together”) is that she says she’s a gold medal figure skater. That can mean a lot of things from winning a national competition to being the winner of the Big-Sparkly-Beginner-Invitational.

    Peacock is a new trend I’ve noticed. Possibly the new octopus.

    What a sloppy embellishing job since she leaves the hanger loops on. She should be able to just snip those off. Looks really tacky.

    Wow, it’s altered, so Etsy legal, but what a rip-off! Outrageous. I would feel like an idiot if I bought them and now were to see the original…

    Yum, glitter cake. Better than sprinkles.

    Maybe she’s charging for Glue Gun Injury?

    How much is Burn Cream , Band Aids and now?…

    AND

    Pain & Suffering!

    Women need to get a grip. Brides are insane and then you lose as assload brain cells with the placenta. Its a wonder we can function at all.

    I like how this same item and seller were featured on regretsy for the same reason… how ironic for this site, right?

    Estrogen and testosterone can be blamed for all the world’s problems:
    overpopulation
    violence
    environmental rape
    overspending on weddings

    We evolved this way. An All Powerful Creator would have nudged us down a different road, but mutations are the culprit. And here we are, the dominant species and up to no damned good.

    I blame men.

    Love the “2009” handbags buried in this vintage shop.

  13. Life During Wartime October 17, 2011 at 12:06 pm #

    Deliberately buried, like the 2001 monolith. With the date right in the title. Etsy sure is on top of this marketplace integrity thing. I”m impressed.

    I blame hormones. Men have the bad ones. Ours just make us believe the “I want you to have my baby” lies. Thank God for menopause.

    re the street treasures – why do we think the name “Coach” is in “quotes”…

    And I second that motion BadaBing: TGFM!!!

    hey! didjaall catch the WSJ article on etsy being the venue for handmade crafts? the company that’s trying to branch out INTERnationally? chad replacement of rk

  16. BadaBing October 18, 2011 at 1:45 pm #

    The WSJ would.

    Gosh, menopause is no big deal compared to puberty!
