The latter half of the famous words "Fancy shmancy". Shmancy is the word we use to describe useless crap that is SUPPOSED to be Fancy, but is in fact, far too gaudy and tacky to be anything but Shmancy. many things from the Victorian Era are Shmancy as well as pretty much anything found in your Grandmothers living room. Any over filigreed, carved, doo-dadded, ostentatious larger than life trinket fits into this catagory.

Like that weird china doll thing my girlfriend keeps ont the shelf...shhhhhhhhhh, don't tell her I said that.
