Snooki's handcrafted oddities a hit on Etsy.com

Courtesy Etsy.comNicole "Snooki" Polizzi is producing ... interesting housewares on Etsy.com.

Good news: Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi has opened her own Etsy.com shop, just in time for Christmas. Bad news: On Wednesday, Polizzi declared herself “SOLD OUT!” Best news: Consider yourself lucky, because Polizzi's tacky trinkets are something only a third-grader could love.

“So excited to have finally opened up my own etsy store!” she gushes on her page on the popular marketplace for crafters. “Hope you guys enjoy my stuff, because I LOVE making everything offered here!”

Screenshots taken Wednesday document the objects of the former “Jersey Shore” star's affection: crudely decorated mugs, candles and wine glasses.

“You're the Jwoww to my Snooki” Polizzi's girlish handwriting screams on one mug ($30), which is accented with a practical tuft of tulle (the mug was hastily redone after a customer pointed out Polizzi had misspelled “you're”). Jenni “Jwoww” Farley co-stars on MTV's “Snooki & Jwoww.”

“This makes me poop,” chirps the writing on another mug, presumably referring to coffee it will one day hold and not the shoddy craftsmanship. The artist also managed to cram “Wine is like Pringles. Once you pop, you just can't stop” onto a wine glass ($25).

It's no Crate&Barrel, but the online store sold 159 items after opening Dec. 3 (including several of the $30 poop mugs). The priciest item? “UNITY CANDLES!” for $100 a pop.

Polizzi, who had her second child with husband Jionni LaValle in September, may not know how to spell “you're,” but she's definitely not stupid.

QUICK TAKES
