With just over five months to go until the federal election (which, yes, still seems like kind of an eternity), the internet’s craftiest citizens have seized on the public’s presidential fever with an array of bizarre political merchandise.
Don’t feel like you see enough of Donald Trump on the news? Why not get a cutting board with his face on it? Want to tell the world that Bernie Sanders is bae? You’re in luck: there are nail decals that say just that.
While buying official T-shirts and hats may be the preferred way of showing support for a candidate, since funds go towards the campaign, a cottage industry of Etsy sellers is flourishing with kitschy trinkets, gag gifts, and millenial-friendly merchandise like enamel pins and stud earrings cut to resemble Bernie Sanders.
One crafter, who makes piñatas in the image of Trump, Cruz, et. al, told The Guardian she’s sold at least 60 of the large $30 version and 120 smaller ornaments and brooches. The only candidate who seems to cashing in by creating her own tongue-in-cheek swag is Hillary Clinton, who has sold a trompe-l’œil pantsuit tee, an apron printed with the slogan “More Like Grillary Clinton”, and a set of can koozies reading—you guessed it—”Chillary Clinton.”
