If you’ve got old junk laying around your house, don’t throw it out, ship it to Etsy seller Cappy Sue, who wants to "jazz up" terrible gifts, awful accessories and regrettable purchases.
Yes, this is an actual Etsy shop. For just $20, you can send Cappy Sue Creations any unwanted item that will fit in a medium Priority Mail box, and she will turn it into er, snazzier crap. "My work is all about making people feel strong emotions. If I can make someone laugh and someone else feel rage then it is a good day,” she wrote on Etsy.
Cappy Sue has transformed many common household tchochkes into conversation pieces, including an ashtray into a Dr. Who-inspired sculpture and an old wooden house into an old wooden house -- on fire. Not to mention, she’s a self-proclaimed “penis maker extraordinaire,” who creates pendants in the shape of male anatomy, just in time for Valentine’s Day.
She started her business in 2008 and has since sold 346 items. Click through our slideshow to see Cappy Sue’s work and be sure to head over to her Etsy site for more information. Hat tip to Buzzfeed for pointing out the wonderful world of Cappy Sue.
