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.
If you’re wondering why this week’s theme is pirates, there is no reason. I just felt like it. And I love nearly everything I found! Sure, the term “pirate” is pretty loosely thrown around on Etsy, encompassing everything from furniture to clothing to prayer candles to whatever this is. My biggest criticism of the pirate booty was that many of the prices are a bit ridiculous. And by a bit, I mean a lot. Of course, if your budget is more Smee than Hook, there are many awesome, more attainable, more reasonably-priced items, too. Predictably, though, it is really the pricey stuff that I love the best.
As usual, links to the items for sale appear below each picture. For more Etsy fun, check out all my weekly Etsomnia™ posts!
