Last night on the Regretsy Facebook page, we played a new game I’m calling IRON ETSY.
Here’s how it works.
I pick a seller who can do a custom order in 90 minutes.
I put the listing up on Facebook, and people have an hour to figure out what the seller should make.
The suggestion with the most “like” votes wins.
The seller has 90 minutes to complete the task, photograph it and send it to me.
I post the results.
I got this idea a few days ago when I noticed a custom listing on Etsy for a drawing of anything you want for $8. I thought that was a pretty good deal, but I was even more impressed when I noticed this drawing in the seller’s store:
You really can’t beat that level of insanity in my book, so Alana became the first artist tapped to play this game.
The suggestions came in pretty fast. At the end of the hour, we had over 200 of them. Here are your top suggestions from the Facebook page:
With 27 votes
With 60 votes
With 74 votes
And the winner, with 89 votes
The final product was so beloved, that we immediately put it on T-shirts and other crap, now available in our Zazzle store. Proceeds will be split between the artist and Regretsy’s charity fund.
Thanks for playing!
