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.
I was reminded this week of the awesome item above by Rebordacao Embroidery, which happens to be my favorite item on Etsy. It inspired this week’s Etsomnia, a tour of some of Etsy’s “funny” items. Sure, there is an unfortunate quantity of crotchy, crass, questionable, and corny items, but in among them were plenty of actually funny stuff!
