If you read the book (and maybe the website), you'll find out that while April Winchell was actually harping on etsy "artists" (using the term loosely), these same "artists" started complaining that Ms Winchell was NOT linking back to the horrid item. So she did...and the items started selling....Crappy, crass, disgusting items started selling...amazing...here is the listing description for just one of the Regretsy items:
"Bertha, the pregnant sock monkey carries her "baby" in her "womb", and the baby can be "delivered" naturally with its "cord" and "placenta". The cord can be "cut" by unsnapping it from the baby's "belly"."
(Not only is this "disturbing", but how many air quotes are allowed in one description?)
Moving along....Debby Schuh wrote about this new magazine Flea Market Style on her blog a few months ago...during that same Barnes and Noble shortcut, I looked for it. I even had Miss Help Desk look it up for me. She was so helpful and said, "So you like to go to flea markets? I guess that's cool, but we don't have that magazine anymore".
I figured I had to wait until the next issue, but to my surprise last week there it was in Walmart. Apparently, the first edition sold so well, they reprinted! Stop it...There are plenty flea market junkies around and we NEED OUR FIX!!!! I'm not only drooling over every page, but following every web link.
