Etsomnia™ 130: Spring Forward

16 Comments

Ah, yes. The traditional Spring rabbit rectum!

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’s weather to the contrary, Spring is coming! So I thought it would be a good time to check out Etsy’s seasonal offerings. As with all things, Etsy sellers have some nutty ideas about what Spring means. I hope you are entertained by this lineup of losers (with some true winners thrown in for fun)!

For more Etsy fun, check out all my weekly Etsomnia™ posts!

Anyone else think there’s a camera in there?

Of all the things I expected to see, down-on-his-luck Jar Jar Binks Bunny was definitely not on the list.

Sometimes a cigar is just a cigar. Then again, sometimes somebody sticks a dress on a cigar and tries to sell it on Etsy.

Surprisingly Big hat.

Worm or sperm? Either way, they’re horrifying.

This is gorgeous! By FashionDress8 (And I’m in love with this one, too!)

Nothing says Spring like a chronically depressed rat.

Wicca as interpreted by Michaels Crafts.

Only you can stop the senseless murder of 1980s furniture. How many sofas have to die before you act? Operators are standing by.

Looks like Gaia Earth Mother could really use a good bra.

You know how floral dresses can remind us of the gardens of our youth? This one brings to mind mulch.

  3. If these atrocities mean spring, I’m going to duck back into my hole and wait for winter. Me and the Zombie Gnomes.

  5. I love the converse. That is all the positives I have. I am afraid the blue dress reminds me of a uniform I once had to wear so that’s a no from me. Cigar bonce girl is super creepy. I would definitely assume that the person who displayed that in their home had barely suppressed serial killer tendencies.
