Novelty Treats: Regretsy

[Via Jezebel] There's a lot to be found on Etsy. Many a unique crafty item, some of them by talented folk, others...not so much. Luckily, we now have Regretsy, a site which seeks out and sheds light upon the dark side of handcrafted merchandise. According to their disclaimer, the folks at Regretsy believe crafting should be like karaoke: "You don’t have to be any good, but only your friends should have to put up with it." They take aim at the items, but try to shirk some potential embarrassment by leaving the artists out of it (not that it's tough to find). It is indeed like Cake Wrecks, but with Twilight sneakers and taxidermied unicorns (also, this amputee kitten demon, which i swear to god is not early Francis Bacon)! If you like a good fail, you can satisfy your schadenfreude as well as hunt for your own gems to submit to the site.
