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.)
It is getting to be coat season. I love Spring and Summer, and I keep them going as long as I can. But as much as I try to deny the dropping temperatures (I’m still wearing flip flops to work), even I have to admit that Winter is Coming, and not in a cool Game of Thrones way, either. Here comes the ice and snow and wind and sniffles and general misery. Ugh.
On the other hand, there’s coats. I do love coats. I have a different coat for every 7-degree fluctuation in the temperature. But there’s always room for more. When you look for “coat” on Etsy, all kinds of crazy non-coat things turn up. And then there are the actual coats. Coats for every kind of weather, from full-on Arctic to it’s 90 degrees but I want to get noticed at Burning Man. Coats for when you’re happy and coats for when you’re sad and coats for when you don’t want to get out from under the covers. So here they are, in all their glory. The good, the bad, and the WTF.
