Ways to Find Ugly Shit

I thought I would share with you a few of the ways to find ugly shit on etsy.

First, the forums are an incredibly helpful tool in discovering fresh ugly shops. Check out the Critiques section. I've found loads of ugly shit condensed into just one thread!
Another great way to search is to sit in the Buy Sell Trade Chats. Just wait for the ugly shit to rear its ugly head on the right side of the screen.
Lastly, the absolute simplest way to have ugly shit come right to you is to watch the Etsy front page. The recently listed items box which refreshes itself ever 15 seconds, averages about 2-3 ugly items at a time.
Enjoy my friends.

You have WAY too much time on your hands...

Seriously. An entire list of ways you waste your time? That's pretty funny.

The photos of that Diva Coat confused me for a moment, until I realized that the fireplace screen was NOT a part of the garment :)

Aw, heck, we all feel a little meanspirited at times. And there is some ugly ugly stuff out there (some of which I've made :)

I do find a bit of snarliness in some of your comments, but that's what's great about life, we don't have to agree on everything.

I'm not saying I disagree with some of your observations. I've been on Etsy a while and there is a fair share of crud, not excluding my shop..hahaa

Keep doing what you're doing, only remember, there are people on the other side of those shops.

Please don't change.

I haven't followed your tweets for ages :(

...but in a team chat tonight for some strange reason I remembered your twitter ID and I instantly (and without any hesitation) recommended your tweets to my closest online pals.

You see I was chatting with genuine artists, many of whom often get down, moody &/or full of doubt. I figured your tweets might help put things into perspective for them.

Anyhow, I popped over to your Twitter just a few moments ago and... you didn't let me down! the creepy yellow vagina with teeth pillow - oh and the bloody tampon art... well need I say more?

Apparently you haven't lost your touch. woo hoo! And guess what? it only takes a few seconds and voila, your latest picks instantly brighten my day! Wow, even just a wee peek at some utter garbage and I laugh till I cry. What a blast!

Thanks for all you do. Your tweets are fabulous! Keep fighting the good fight :) Be as 'snarly' as you damn well please too. After all, fugly shit is fugly shit.

Cooking is a form of creativity where the sky can't be the limit. It is my belief that a person will not gain a very great cooking experience without visiting cooking sites. and are few for me to mention and to recommend as a part of the best. This isn't a theory. This is a fact. Both of these sites are likely responsible for publishing thousands of professionally chef qualified recipes over the Internet. Since I've found Kitchen Geekery as you have suggested, I'll be checking it out. Once it satisfied me, I'll be sharing it with my friends throughout the web. Thank you for sharing.
