5.0 out of 5 stars Somewhat more gentle than I thought...in a good way!, April 15, 2010
This review is from: Regretsy: Where DIY Meets WTF (Paperback)
First let me say that I've paid some serious attention to this book. The reason is that I'm a ...um... 'contributor.' I'm featured in it, so the book suddenly has some real impact on me. If this part will make you think I am more biased for the book, then you can stop reading here.

April chose the item of mine she wanted to rip on, and I sent her some high resolution pictures and my consent. That's all the input I got as to what would be said about my stuff. I'm happy to say that she didn't make me cry! I also got to 'defend' my piece, but I honestly felt like I didn't need to defend it, so I spent that part in promoting my store. Hehe.

This isn't some bit of Etsy bashing propaganda, and it's not just to make fun of the stuff on Etsy, either. It's a sort of a window into some of the more eccentric things you can find on Etsy. Sure, you can search Etsy for stuff yourself, and you'll find some weird things...but there's no way one person could find all of the 'treasures' in this book all by one's self.

If you like shopping on line, and you like weird stuff, give it a look! It's good for a laugh at the very least.

Was it the Pregnant Sock Monkey? Igottaknow...This is the funniest book ever, because when I pick it up I can't stop laughing. It had that effect on me when it came out and I was checking it out in a Borders laughing hysterically to the point that a store security officer appeared not far behind me monitoring the crazy laughing lady to see what all the uproar was about. I didn't care, I continued to laugh like a hyena. It's a free country. I didn't buy the book then cuz I was broke-but I have been wanting it4ever. It's been in my amazon cart4ever. I just bought it for a penny used+ $3.99 shipping. The moment I opened it my bf&I died laughing. The funniest book ever. I have only shopped on etsy once. I would love to know if u still have a store there.
