….How did the first seller get into my knitting bag?
And my hairbrush! I want a cut of the profit.
ALL that for only $1,000,000? What a steal!
Yes, as in “those freak crafting hags managed to steal my million dollars”!
I knew keeping all these cats would pay off some day. I figure I must pick up and throw away an easy half million every morning just in the dining room alone.
Don’t know about you but my cat would add some grass and the occasional bug parts are well as REAL hair so they’d be multimedia AND organic. I should charge 2 mill., yes?
OMG A PYTHON ATE YOUR BABY
I would buy it if it had a large python head built in to look like it’s eating the baby.
This is actually worth the money. The Boa version is too constricting.
The cobra too striking,
The asp too biting (not to mention too small),
the garden snake too common.
The drain snake, too draining.
The garter snake, didn’t hold up.
Somehow your avatar perfects that joke.
The cotton mouth was comfy and absorbent but too poisonous.
No no, Cakeasaurus… the trouser snake is the reason they’re in that mess in the first place.
The viper was just the pits.
Babies actually found the Rattlesnake version delightful, but parents found it annoying.
Ocean Washed Glass Stones take 4-8 months?
Is there a translater somewhere that took: “I can only be assed to walk the beach once a month and look for polished beer bottles?”
Those look like the decorative pebbles you get in the fake flower section of Hobby Lobby.
Sea-polished glass has a frosted look. Like here: http://www.etsy.com/listing/89722268/1-pound-of-sea-glass-ready-for-jewelry?ref=cat_gallery_5
Those glass “rocks” may or may not have been dipped into a sea, but they were never polished by a sea.
I’m thinking this seller got those decorative pebbles at local Hobby Lobby, as suggested earlier, and made up the rest. The 4-8 month time period? Seller never mails it, you forget about it in 8 months.
But seller is not greedy! “Due to the extreme rarity of their inherent nature, I should probably sell these stones for $more but I am not so greedy…”
Why do these look like highly polished gall stones? That must be why they take so long to produce
If you just throw them in the dryer every time you do a load and don’t mind a bunch of noise and buying new dryers you can have sea-polished stones in about 1/2 a year.
If I bought something for eighty-eight thousand dollars, I’m sure I’d remember the transaction.
Actually, the “sea glass” you linked to as an example has all been finished in a rock tumbler (description states this). So that’s really not a very good example at all.
At best, that’s “twice-tossed” glass, and at worst it’s “craft glass”. You can buy the latter at Hobby Lobby.
Actually, the listing does specify that these were “washed” in the ocean. Just a quick dip, apparently.
Well, passing them *hurts*.
I refuse to buy watercolors unless the figures are constantly in motion.
For some reason the hair and comb sculptures look really big and it’s kind of wigging me out. Where does one find a hair pick that size?
One can only find picks of that size on etsy.
You, of all people, would know that.
Etsy Pick of the Day?
I thought they were the size of patio furniture from the
photo – just goes to show you need a quarter to show size.
Me too–and they’re a lot more interesting that way. Still ought to be real hair, though.
A 100 grand for hairballs made from fake hair? How gauche!
IKR? I would insist on real human hair at that price.
I would insist on a real human head at that price.
Oooh how much for the picture of the penny?!
The above sellers’ collective dignity?
Oh wait, that’s for the cent itself. The pic could probably go for $10 easily.
$10 isn’t a bargain nor an insult, IT’S A CRIME!!!
Unless you meant $100,000. Then, it’s priceless!
[reminds me of a Three’s Company episode where Mr. Farley’s selling some wall art that he declares is priceless. To wit, Chrissy replies, “Oh, you mean … it’s worthless! “
I admit that sometimes I fantasised about a snake eating one of my children, but it was purely in an exhausted moment of weakness.
I always thought Karma stones would be free. And, that lamp? I bet you can smoke it.
For a moment, I didn’t think that first item looked too bad…”oh, that’s actually kind of cool. Not worth that much money, but cool. It must be made out of that stuff that they sale at Wal-Mart that you grow plants in…but why is it called ‘hair ball’? And why do those things look…like….combs?? Oh jesus!”
People! No one wants your hair! And if they do, they are probably a creepy stalker and you shouldn’t give them your hair anyway! Geez!

Hate to spoil the fun but… your math is wrong after item 2.
900,000 – 88,000 = 812,000
You’ve got another 176K to blow! Better get cracking sister!
There are three available, Holly. And we want all three.
Excuse me… missed that fine detail…. are we sure 3 is enough???
I only need one to throw at the seller.
I already bought the first one, along with the driftwood-and-kelp sea vag-a-whatchamacallit pictured. I’m well on my way to constructing my Love Mermaid.
I find it awesome that we have an official treasurer! Don’t downvote Holly! She’s just looking out for the bottom line so that we get our money’s worth.
I looked at it, and she’s off by only a dollar. But you can blow it on a small coffee at Dunkin Donuts.
As delighted I am that you figured out how to make a lamp shade, and thus, never have to set foot in another lamp store or what-have-you, you do not get to have $250,000.00. From anyone. Ever. At least not in relation to the lamp shade.
That is all.
I finally figured out how to put this Ikea chair together.
That’ll be $100K.
Ah, but the lamp shade isn’t hand crafted, just the lamp itself. And when I say hand crafted I mean the guy just got a new routing table and was experimenting.
My bad. STILL NO $250K!
Perhaps he failed to mention that he routed the lamp out of solid gold.
Or that the lamp is a caketopper and comes with a cake, and the cake is a house.
Am I the only person thinking a wooden lamp shade MIGHT present a potential fire hazard?
Also, it’s gonna be hella hard to read anything next to it. Unless you remove the shade.
Nah…the cake is a lie. Everyone knows that.
At first I thought the hairballs were the size of those plastic lawn/patio chairs. Actually, I thought they WERE plastic lawn/patio chairs, wrapped in hair.
Now THAT would be worth 100K.
Now take that penny down to the rail line and make yourself some art!
(Note: don’t use the third rail unless you’re looking to make performance art)
Nah. Penny squishers are more fun.
(Though, I admit, not free.)
I would only buy the stroller if the Python was still alive, then give it to a family with a child I don’t like.
Aaaaand my brain goes straight to “I would only perform in a scene in which there was full frontal nudity.”
What? The tequila was just sitting there. Don’t judge.
Tequila goes bad after a couple of weeks, anyway. You wouldn’t have wanted it to go to waste.
Harvey Keitel, is that you?
Does bedazzling things now qualify as being a “designer”? Is there a class at design school for how to glue rhinestones on things?
You just don’t understand! The glue from the gun is sooo sticky and it gets everywhere, and before you know it your eye is glued shut and a paper towel is glued to your hand and you’ve fallen and you can’t get up.
And the Life Alert button won’t press because it’s coated in Super 77.
Wax rhinestone picker pencils. Tedious, but not as hard as some people might like you to think.
Wax rhinestone picker pencils, say that 5 times really fast!
For $999 those should be the other kind of crystals that confer moon vibrational Goddess emanations of spiritus mysterium, empower one’s internal shaman and align the laptop’s chakras.
I guess $100,000 does not putting the Dalitastrophe completely into the frame.
In fact, I bet no frame will fit (sh)it because there are some discarded fake fingernails and a turkey wishbone in the way.
I feel kind of bad I haven’t appreciated all the lovely and clearly very valuable art my kitties created for our home.
No kidding. Finally! The little fuckers can start earning their keep.
I guess the karma stone maker knows no peace, because that listing is the product of a mind with a steely grip on ego.
I’m wondering if some of these people just have a very poor grasp of where the decimal point is supposed to go. I could see $88 for one of those, or $250 for the lamp. I wouldn’t pay it, but I could see that being the price.
The prices are in celsius.
I think that’s the funniest thing I’ve seen all week.
All this comment is missing is the Comment of the Day ribbon.
Agreed. – HK
Maybe Kelvin? That’s several more decimal places down.
…Or is it up? Damn American system, I never could figure out metric…
I wouldn’t pay more than Absolute Zero for most of this crap.
That was my thought as well. Or maybe a simple typo from pressing the zero key too long.
That said, some of it is still garbage. Hair on a fork? Bleh!!
As long as Etsy keeps their fees at 20 cents per item, Regretsy will have plenty to show us! Way too many items are priced for entertainment value!
And some have told me MY items are too much! I should respond with a link to this post every time…
I don’t think thirty bucks for some pretty intricate beading is asking for too much.
Seriously? Your designs are beautiful and very reasonable. Anyone who said that is just cheap.
I am reassured that the karma stone seller has set an honest price by the footnote
“* Due to the extreme rarity of their inherent nature, I should probably sell these stones for $more but I am not so greedy and misguided as to think it is actually worth that to me…”
Goodness, she wrote at the end that if you buy three you get as an added bonus “a permanent +3% to mana and health regeneration which you may give away freely or use internally to power your mission to benefit all sentient beings.”
+3% mana and health regen is my racial.
Did you give it away freely or use it internally?
*muttering about fucking elves*
Who is she trying to fool? Everybody knows that once you add stats, it’s soulbound.
Darn! I just posted that. Then scrolled down. :’(
I am not original!
I just pretended that the sellers had accidentally put the decimal point at least 4 places too far to the right for each of these. They make a lot more sense if they’re worth $10, $8.80, etc. (In some cases, $2.50.)
Of course I still wouldn’t actually pay $10 for a wad of fake hair, but still: my mind can at least grasp it that way.
With all the hair I’ve lost over the last few years, I’ve been throwing away a FORTUNE! I’m gonna go pull the tribble out of my hairbrush, fluff it a bit more into shape, cram some cheap plastic combs in it, and KA-CHING! One buyer, and I’ll get to keep my house!!
I’m guessing the crystals alone on the laptop would be at least $300-$600 themselves (if they are swarovski (price difference between kinds of crystals) and purchased in bulk). It would take a LONG time to apply that many crystals! While I don’t think it’s worth it at any price, she is definitely not marking her work up enough! Especially when selling to a Kardashian famous because her sister was in a sex tape.
Actually, it’s amazing the Kardashian laptop is the only one that’s not incredibly over-priced – not that I’d ever want one.
How much for the calculator?
Nice tangent. It’s exponentially more than you would think. You’ll need a loan and someone to cosine with you. Ah’m just sine.
Hey! It’s the Addams Family stroller!
It needs a craft shrunken heads mobile, though. Maybe Wednesday can make one at school.
With her classmates.
“Purification.” If you mean purify my bank account by removing all the money, then sure.
As for the eight month delay due to lunar cycles, well…
THE MOON IS WAXING HALF THE TIME YOU FUCKING DOUCHE-NOZZLE
So I could have made a lamp or a watercolor sketch and I would not have a mortgage?
Too little too late Etsy.
The 3D “Persistence of memory” piece looks interesting but–why on earth did they include a wisdom tooth that was not in the painting whatsoever. That’s biological waste. It can give people a disease. Dali was not that far out.
My thoughts exactly. The idea of using real watch parts, is actually pretty creative. Then I saw “wisdom tooth”. I don’t want your useless body parts in my art TYVM.
Well, Dammit, you’ve RUINED the surprises for your birthday!
That lamp looks like the one my great grandmother had in her spare bedroom, only without the tinsel woven in and the whole “survived the Great Depression” thing going for it.
There’s really not much I can say about this right now except to shake my head slowly and sadly while saying, “Holy shit.”
Actually, I should throw in that I like the lamp. Not the price, but the thing itself. I’d pay $2.50 for it. $25 at a push. And at least it’s actually functional. There are other functional pieces here but their function is to be ostentatious. Or else they’re decorative and/or “mystical” and just look like shit. “I only work on this during the waxing of the moon” translates to “I work on this whenever I think about it and you’ll be lucky to get anything six months after giving me your money.”
Actually I quite like the baby buggy, but wouldn’t the snakeskin require a certain amount of maintenance? I can just imagine the reaction if I asked my husband to pull off the python then go and polish the snake.
And without a doubt, you are an Australian. And quite possibly Judith Lucy.
Yes and no, in that order. And there’s Nothing Fancy about that.
I like the python baby stroller, too. Makes me wish I had a python baby to push in it.
I sweep up those hair ball thingies every day at my salon…who knew they were works of “art” *snicker snort*
Crystal Fetish is a great stripper name
The python’s offer to carry the baby was politely declined, but he refused to take NO for an answer. So we killed him and turned his hide into a stroller cover ( waste not, want not) … Also, be careful what you ask for.
Can noone else see the bajingo in the beach glass? Third one down. NOW do you see why they’re so expensive? I’d totally drop $88k on bajingo beach glass. Although it also kinda looks like The Scream, which I feel is also apt.
Isn’t it ROUTER TABLE, not routing table? Unless you sort squashed packages at the Post Office.
The lamp shade is a good value, because the actual description should have been:
Hand Crafted Wooden Lamp w/ Shade w/ 18 yottawatt death laser.
I made this lamp to test out my new routing table, and to destroy most any class M planet … FUN!!!
It would appear that I have finally found a way to make some serious pennies, by simply using the hucked up, vile smelling, balls of death that my darling puss-cats decide to leave on the kitchen floor every few weeks.
I need the Bedazzled Mac Book Case…it will go with my Bedazzled Car….
I want that car to be real, and for sale cheap.
That’s my daily driver LOL… it’s definitely for real but not for sale.
the hairball artists shop isn’t *all* that bad – except for the fact that almost all the items are $100,000 I might pay a little for a few of the things.
Oh wait there are a few that are $10,000 and i see one that is only $100!
this person is either crazy/high or simply delusional (or all three) to think someone would pay $100,000 for a painting – or a hairball – or anything from them. and if they actually do make a sale – well i guess there is someone more delusional than the seller
Maybe they’re all German? You know, putting the comma where we put the stop. But even if that is the explanation, the stuff is still…. *ambitiously* priced
Everything in the first seller’s store is ridiculously overpriced, including tons of stuff at that 100 grand price. The cheapest thing I could find is a print of a fly that also had a real dead fly on it – selling for $300.
I wonder, do these people ever ask themselves why they’re not selling anything?
