After months of buildup, Amazon finally launched a marketplace called Handmade at the beginning of October. The marketplace directly competes against Etsy, selling crafts and handmade products from independent artisans.
Now that Etsy has some new competition, the question arises: who can do it better?
Obviously, that question is extremely complicated and needs to take into consideration reach, pricing, ethos, and a number of other issues. But for you, the consumer, it may ultimately come down to who "wore" it better.
Cast your vote for the following eight products. Both Etsy(ETSY) - Get Report and Handmade at Amazon(AMZN) - Get Report are offering you a unique product, and it's up to you to decide who did it better.
Each marketplace offers a slightly different take on this Breakfast at Tiffany's classic.

Everyone needs a sasquatch bottle opener. Right?

How artsy are you willing to go with your kitchen bar stools?
Everyone needs a superhero oven mitt--the question is are you more of a Batman kind of person or a Superman fan?
