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.)
DISCLAIMER: Though I do enjoy a good joke, and Etsomnia™ is one of my favorite things, my intention is never to discourage artists or makers of any kind. All wisecracks and criticism are meant for humorous effect only. Please take them as seriously as they are meant, which is not at all.
As I mentioned last week, I currently have three baby presents to buy in a fairly short period of time. Guess what? You’re coming shopping with me. Like most of the categories I explore, baby stuff runs the gamut from glorious to grim, from adorable to abhorrent, and from wondrous to wonder-what-they-were-thinking. In this category, however, the awful seemed a little extra awful. And as usual, cost is no indicator of taste.
As usual, links to the items for sale appear below each picture. For more Etsy fun, check out all my weekly Etsomnia™ posts.
