Etsomnia™ 100: Quite a Few of My Favorite Things

14 Comments

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’s been a big month. First, on July 20, I published my 1,000th post, and now here is my 100th episode of Etsomnia™. (Technically, it’s number 102. There were apparently two number 52s because I was day drinking, and a 2a because I hit the wrong button and published two in one day by accident. Bygones.) Although it was more than two years ago, it seems like only yesterday when I found myself unable to sleep, and first resorted to perusing Etsy in the middle of the night. An Attack of Etsomnia (A.K.A. Etsomnia Volume I) was actually sweet and filled with beautiful things (if a bit aimless)! It was in Etsomnia Volume IIa that I published my first curse word, but it wasn’t until Etsomnia Volume IV that I started to explore the more, let’s call them surprising items on Etsy. Good times!

So this week, because I’m filled with the milk of human kindness, Etsomnia is chock-full of beautiful things, most which would make great gifts (or at least great gag gifts for people with a sense of humor). Mind you, there are 105 thousand – yes, thousand – $100 items on Etsy, and not even I could get through them all, though I did my best. So here, without further ado, are 100 of my favorite $100 items for sale on Etsy (plus one turkey). Now, go give these sellers some love!
