Friday's F Word: Regretsy

Every product must find the perfect consumer.

Fetus kitty toy? Fish in a Taxidermy Squirrel Suit? Kitty Litter Bag Tote? Poo Soap? Condom Pillow? You know you want it.

Any crafter worth his or her salt has at least heard of Etsy, the marketplace where creative folks can list their wares. But lurking amongst the treasures are, well, bits of trash. Or at least items we can ask, as we wipe tears from our eyes and giggle hysterically, "what the bloody hell were you thinking??"

Luckily, there is a site that is dedicated to sharing these finds aptly named Regretsy. And each gem is presented with such biting sarcasm that it makes you cackle out loud. Regretsy's motto is "Handmade? It looks like you made it with your feet!" You can also follow them on Twitter.

Be careful, because like a train wreck, you can't look away.


  1. LOL Goat Coats? I think I might have to buy the Fly portrait for my family room... or maybe not!

  2. LOL To paraphrase the moderator: "art is subjective, if you really dig it, by all means, snap it up!" There are actually a couple of things that a kinda cool. :)
