Et·som·ni·a (/etˈsämnēə/), noun, 1. a sleep disorder caused by obsessive Etsy browsing. 2. the surprising arrival of weird handmade merchandise ordered when one is only half conscious. (True story.)
As you know, every week, I celebrate (okay, mock) the wonderful mix of vintage items and handmade things that is Etsy. When I was looking for the entries in last week’s WTF post, I came across the doll head lamp below, and it sent me on a fun tangent exploring Etsy’s lamps. I am thrilled to report that today’s theme has delivered up every bit as much excitement as the other categories I’ve explored. The lighting offerings ran the gamut from brilliant and beautiful to bizarre to just plain ugly.
As usual, links to the items for sale appear below each picture. For more Etsy fun, check out all my weekly Etsomnia™ posts.
