Handmade? It looks like you made it with your feet.
Regretsy is what is sounds like: a spoof web site that collects all the shouldn’ta products sold on Etsy…And all profits go to support Etsy artists.
Profits from Regretsy merchandise are used to hire Etsy artists to create handmade products for various charities, or to directly benefit Etsy sellers in need.
We are currently raising $200 for Project Linus. When we reach our goal, we will hire an Etsy seller through Alchemy to make blankets for seriously ill children.
Money raised to date for all charitable projects: $658.05
We heart Etsy. Just search “Etsy” on elephantjournal.com, you’ll find five hundred blogs giving them or one of their countless artists, props. Hell, this winter, I’m biking about in an Etsy-bought sock monkey winter hat (with ears!) given as Christmas slash goodbye present by one of my interns.
Still…Regretsy picks up on something horrifically hilarious: for every genius entrepreneurial handmade product, there’s probably one out there that didn’t fly, and crashed and burned.
