In honor of the royal wedding, here are some special, handpicked Etsy finds!
Let’s take a look, shall we?
Aren’t those yummy? Look at all those pale things! I don’t even know what they are, but they’re muted, and that’s good enough for me. WANT WANT WANT!
Let’s keep looking!
Holy crap, would you look at that sapphire? What incredible workmanship! Let’s click through to see the talented hand crafter who toiled over that beauty!
585 listings? Well no wonder KNR INC quit his day job! He doesn’t have time for anything else! Well, except listing on Ebay.
What a great success story! The Little Diamond Wholesaler That Could! Just goes to show you what Etsy exposure can do. In just a few hours, KNR Inc went from a making rings in his garage to running a showroom in the diamond district with between 51-200 employees!
And just in case the men are feeling left out, here are some handmade pieces for the gents!
So keep chugging little crafter! All you need is a wholesale account and a few hundred listings, and you too can be one of Etsy’s handpicked favorites!
UPDATE: ETSY SPRINGS INTO ACTION
Regretsy reader Melissa sent an email of complaint to Emily, the person at Etsy who curated this assortment of fuckery. A company wide meeting was held immediately thereafter to discuss plans for the spring picnic, and who would sew the sacks for the three-legged race.
Later, Melissa received this reply:
Thanks for contacting me about this. If you have a concern, I encourage you to flag the item. The items for this email were vetted, and returned no concerns.
From the Gribsby web site:
The Gribsby Plate is a collaboration between Gribsby and Italian illustrator Emanuele Caponera, who created the loving and humorous image.
It is a limited edition of 1,000. Each plate has a numbered, signed certificate.
The plate is manufactured in Stoke on Trent.
“The Gribsby Plate is not an anti-establishment gesture. It is an expression of my belief that the way ahead for humanity lies in the loving marriage of the male and female energies. The British monarchy is a focus of joy and love for the whole world, and a Royal wedding is a time for us to experience that joy in an excitingly erotic way.
Of course the plate is irreverent, in the best best British tradition. This is why I have called it an ‘anal-ternative’ souvenir. Laughter is essential to emotional balance. But my irreverence is underpinned by a profound belief in the orderliness of life and a respect for marriage as an ancient sacrament.
My congratulations go to beautiful Wills and Kate, together with my sincere wish that they find lasting pleasure and nurture in each other’s bodies.”
