What if you spent every day looking for One Beautiful Thing?

Etsomnia™ IV: Shitshow


Mona Lisa mixed media

Mona Lisa mixed media “art.” And I thought I had weird dreams.

et·som·ni·a (/etˈsämnēə/), noun, 1. a sleep disorder caused by obsessive Etsy browsing. 2. the surprising arrival of weird handmade merchandise ordered in one’s sleep.

Last night, I couldn’t sleep, but this time, instead of looking for the best stuff on Etsy, I went on a  hunt for the worst. There’s a lot of fairly tragic meh-chandise on Etsy, but I was looking for the really special items. And yes, this late-night activity absolutely cheered me up.  So without further ado, here is the Etsomnia™ Shitshow.  Enjoy. Also, I’d like to apologize in advance for the weird dreams this offal will inspire. I had a few doozies last night, let me tell you!

These are referred to as “upcycled.” I don’t think that means what you think it means.

  7. Dawn, funny you say that. I was thinking about that very object this morning, that’s the one that stuck in my head. Like why? Are there Vader fetishists? NOT that I want to know the answer. Forget I even asked.
