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

Etsomnia™ 297: WTF 2021 Edition


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.

Sorry this is late, folks. Technical difficulties!

Most of 2020 was unimaginable, but I suspect 2021 may have a few tricks up its sleeve as well. Accordingly, I thought it would be fun to take a fresh look at Etsy’s more… unexpected items. As usual, my favorite shopping site didn’t disappoint!

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

I don’t have a problem with this. If only all crazy people would identify themselves so clearly.
Silicone prosthetic toe, because that’s certainly something you’d want to buy on Etsy.
That’s a real (and really ugly) starfish. What do you think this winner smells like?
Nicholas Cage looks so much creepier without hair or a neck… Oh, who am I kidding? He’s always creepy!
“Easter parade hat,” COVID edition.
Here’s what I think of this…
When double denim just isn’t enough!
Silicone “seat saver.” This is actually kind of genius! By GeodeResin
Earrings from the Person of Interest collection.
This is supposed to be one of those nightmarish “real” baby dolls. Do you think this was her model?
Why would someone make a vase out of me when I have a cat hair in my eye?
“Statement ring.” If you wore this thing regularly, you’d end up with one arm that looked like this.
How badly do you think she wants to scratch right now?

I have committed to spending part of every day looking for at least one beautiful thing, and sharing what I find with you lovelies!

  1. Look at the fingernails on the hand holding the Nic Cage mug? There’s the deterrent right there! Have you seen his Netflix ‘History of Swear Words?” Shows not good, but Nic delivers!!!

  4. That seat saver IS genius! And I got a 404 error when I tried to follow your link about the creepy doll, but to me it looked eerily like Gollum.
