Etsy, the yard sale site where junk goes to die. Remember, just because you couldn’t sell it your church’s Chinese auction, doesn’t mean there’s not someone out in Montana in desperate need of that crap in your basement that even the garbage men wouldn’t take.
In their About section, Etsy says, “We are bringing heart to commerce and making the world more fair, more sustainable and more fun.” That sounds like fancy hippy talk for “this is a quick way to make more money for weed and clear out grandma’s attic”. Just because you can glue some popsicle sticks together and slaps some paint on it, doesn’t make it “art” or “sustainable” or worth “$3.99”. Then again, if you’re a hipster dying for a macaroni picture or something else to spark conversation with your pretentious friends, check out these items.
