What if you spent every day looking for One Beautiful Thing?

Etsomnia™ 175: Everything Must Go!

22 Comments

I know why this didn’t sell. Somebody put that baby together wrong. That is not where the leg goes.

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.

Even the most successful retail establishments have a clearance rack, so today, it’s “everything must go!” And happily, it’s not all poop slime and tooth brooches and other garbage. Mostly, sure, but there’s some really wonderful stuff in there if you have the time to look!

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

The description says “whimsical” but the eyes say “help me.”

This is meant to be a “Spanish Fascinator,” but it looks more like a head saddle. And the less said about that, the better.

Even on clearance, I can’t afford it, but still wowie! By JewelLUXEclassic

It’s a mystery why this “gourmet cupcake soap” didn’t sell, but I have a theory. I’ll bet you can guess what it is.

What? This didn’t sell? What a shame! All those Muppets died for nothing!

I love vintage fashion, but when I look at the dimensions, I think if I went back in time, I’d look like this. By TheBlackVelvets

While our parents made us wear ugly crap like this. I expect you young people to make better choices.

Hard to believe this one didn’t sell. It would be the perfect job interview accessory.

Looks like I’m not the only one who spent the winter only shaving above the boots!

I try hard not to buy more tote bags, but I might have to make an exception in this case! By SurlyBirdBoutique

Turns out that if an alien and an owl had a baby, it wouldn’t sell.

Most scents bother me, but I can’t imagine the size of the headache this soap made of many different scented soap scraps would induce. Ugh.

Okay, I know that it’s a slouchy beanie, but does anyone else see an angry sea otter?

I would characterize this as more irritating than fascinating.

Welcome… to my small intestines

  6. And here, I took the Etsy sale event seriously, and put a 15% off tag on my chainmail ducks.

    Guess I should have marked down some of my learners pieces, eh?

  7. Hahah – this had me laughing out loud !! Especially the cupcake and the angry sea-otter beanie…
    I am now following you as I need to see more of what my fellow Etsy sellers really should be thinking twice about selling. (Whatever happened to the hilarious ‘Regretsy’ blog ?)

    • Thank you! I like to think of myself as the honorary heir to the Regretsy throne. Consequently, I am also Etsy’s biggest fan. The Etsy bogey man gig is only a once a week thing. Thanks for the follow!
