Some internet trolls have asked, "Is this the best Etsy store ever?" But we just won't tolerate stupid questions like that.

The store they're referring to is, of course, BTSJ, the pride at joy of Etsy. Artist Brad Troemel uses found materials and stuff to make what he calls "some of the most significantly organic, inscrutably rare, and immeasurably valuable products on Etsy."

Below you will find art at its purest, and highest form. Original work titles have been retained to preserve originality, and the artist's comments on each piece are listed below the item. Please enjoy basking in the ethereal light that is the artistic wonder of BTSJ.
