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

Etsomnia™ 253: Under the Micro-Scope

17 Comments

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.

Wasn’t last week’s Etsomnia™ great? It was such a pleasure to bring you so many gorgeous things. Nonetheless, that’s over. This week, I felt like looking for super-tiny things. From swimwear to toys to other gratuitously-tiny stuff, micro is one of those terms that can be applied to all kinds of crazy items. Most of it is cute and fun, but as usual, there were a few tiny nightmares, too.

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

This was listed as a “great Secret Santa gift.” Great if you like trips to HR, that is.

This, in case you couldn’t tell, is a “romantic Edwardian figure” attached to a bullet casing. This week’s winner of the “Because Etsy” award.
OMGOMGOMGOMG. By MinIrinaCrochet whose entire shop made me squint and squee!
Seems like this maker either has a fetish or an extremely short attention span…
These gorgeous DIY doll houses are making me drool! By LittleMissMiniature
No. Nope. No way. Eew. Get it away.
Super adorable, but you know I’d lose it in the first 10 seconds, then spend the rest of my life crawling on the floor looking for it. By AdoreMini (who also makes this gorgeous thing)
According to the maker, this 1″ micro pipe “packs a punch once you figure out how to smoke out of it.” I think they meant to say “packs a pinch.”
I’m sorely tempted to send these (anonymously) to a few people… By EppyCaps
Micro SD card reader/USB butt plug. Good luck getting that out of your head.

  1. “On the bright side, The Awkward Fairy is my new favorite pub name.” And because I was curious how much the Micro SD card reader/USB butt plug cost, I checked out Jesse’s etsy. And while she has many treasures displayed – the S&M taxidermy rats come to mind – apparently some lucky buyer has already purchased the Micro SD card reader/USB butt plug and I’ll never know the price

  7. That micro snail might be the smallest adorable thing I have ever seen. I cannot even begin to comprehend how one would make something that microscopic. As you know from our many previous conversations, I too am drawn to tiny wee things (though I don’t own many because sons and cats) but there are a good few items in this week’s episode that I would not give even a tiny wee bit of shelf space to.
