*Haunted by bad taste, primarily
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.) 3. An excuse for me to be an obnoxious, snarky New Yorker once per week.
This week, I took a look at Halloween decorations on Etsy. I don’t decorate for Halloween, so I wasn’t sure what to expect. There’s plenty of tasteful fare, mixed in with some adorable kid-friendly items, some really ingenious pieces, a few things I would call gorgeous, and an unfortunate amount of junk that’s positively inexcusable. (Sorry.) I really suffered for this one, but I was also largely pleasantly surprised.
