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.)
Etsomnia is a day early this week.
I would love to be a shoe designer. I think about it all the time, but it’s not the kind of thing you can dabble in. Even more than clothing design, shoe design requires a good working understanding of the body part it’s meant to cover. We’re not talking about scarves, here. People wearing the items actually need to be able to, you know, walk. Etsy sellers don’t let that slow them down, however. And if you expand the search to include slippers, things get even weirder.
