Etsy--an Italian word referring to overpriced junk and cheap, trashy, idiotic or otherwise useless items that are resold as "handmade" or "vintage" but are really bought from discount retailers, dollar stores, WalMart, and wholesale Chinese websites. A small percentage of items is actually handmade, like bracelets meticulously crafted by running a string through five beads bought at Hobby Lobby for .49 cents and then resold to suckers as "fine handmade jewelry" for a 2700% markup. "Vintage" items are anything weathered, rusted, stained with dog or cat urine, faded, or counterfeited in Chinese sweat shops, that can be pawned off on unsuspecting suckers. Etsy goods are often made by delusional assholes with no artistic talent whatsoever, and yet they have enormous egos and actually believe their friends who tell them "you are so talanted!" when, in reality, their friends feel sorry for them and think they are complete morons. Sometimes this word also refers to cheap trinkets--like shiny keychains--found in Italian gettos and then resold to American tourists who think they are getting some valuable work of art handcrafted by an Italian master. Etsy can also imply idiot pieces made by art posers. Art critics sometimes use the word etsy word when referring to idiot pieces made by celebrity art posers like Jeff Koons.
"Hey, Leonardo, how much etsy did you pawn off today to those stupid Americans?"

"Dude, this shit is complete etsy! I can't believe you paid $42.95 for it. My wife bought this exact item at The Dollart Store for .79 cents!"

"Oh man, this gallery sucks. What a bunch of etsy! Fucking art posers."

"Etsy"--an Italian word for Chinese junk bought at The Dollar Store and then sprinkled with glitter or decoupaged with cheap wrapping paper and then resold at a 2300% markup to morons who think they are buying a "handmade" item or, even more laughable, art.
