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.)
I celebrated my 25th anniversary with my firm last week, and it got me thinking. What kinds of craziness would Etsy deliver if I searched for “anniversary gift?” Of course, there were some really beautiful traditional gifts, some very interesting outside-the-box gift ideas, and in usual Etsy style, a few items in the other category as well.
