Etsom·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.
During my weekly obsessive perusing of Etsy, I’ve noticed a trend toward unusual poses. I assume the idea is to grab shoppers’ attention on a website that’s over-full with competitors, but some of them go way beyond “Look at me” and head on over to “Look away.” I thought it was a topic worth exploring. No good ones this week, just head-scratchers.
