really bad stuff on Etsy

I love Etsy. It’s provided me with a nice platform to successfully sell my paintings. With that said, the folks at Etsy really should consider opening an off-shoot site for artists through invitation only. When I first joined Etsy in June 2007, it still was mostly urban craftsers and artists. A good majority of the work was very creative and interesting. Since Etsy has hit the mainstream, with it came an endless tidal wave of crappy junk. Probably 95% of what’s on Etsy now is just boring, ugly junk. Within that 95% is just the plain insane which led to the creation of regretsy.com. There’s some crazy stuff out there.

Yes, the pink leopard pattern goat coat is still available for purchase.

I don’t really just float around on etsy, I go there with something very specific in mind and use the search tool. That said, I haven’t seen much on etsy that is too whackadoodle, but how can goat coat be topped? Nevermind, I don’t want to know! So baaad
