For the Love of . . . Fabio on Etsy?

What happens—just out of curiosity, you understand—when you cross Fabio and Etsy? You might be surprised (not to mention amused—or at least, we were). A sampling:

Okay then! What's the strangest/funniest/most fantastic thing you've ever found on Etsy?

I must admit to being addicted to http://www.regretsy.com/ , which showcases some of the most regrettable things to appear on Etsy. Nothing I have found on my own could ever compare to the stuff they find!

Um, I never knew about Etsy. Now I do. Hubby will not be happy but I will!

A whole bunch of crafties selling their wares...

We just went to a switchplate site for stylin' new bathroom doodads, and this, um, "aperture placement motif" runs through many historical figures and characters of way less appeal. I'd never seen it before, but it's an authentic wang-thang these days!

Bwahaha. The things people will think of. Fabio is in danger of being forgotten by the public at large, so it's good to see all this interest in vintage "art." (Not!)

Just put away the credit cards before visiting Etsy! (Not before you visit my site -- http://www.etsy.com/shop/adeptmagic -- heehehehe.

I don't think Fabio is really in danger of being forgotten. I mention his name and everyone knows who I mean. Of course, I am "of a certain age," and so are my friends!
