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.
Mid-September. It’s hot. It’s steamy. I’m constantly damp, and generally desperate for a puff of air conditioning. And yet… every so often, amidst the searching for a breeze or a bit of shade, comes the teensiest hint of Autumn. Can you feel it? It’s delicious. It’s delightful. But it carries with it a touch of sadness for the impending death of another Summer. So this week, we’re looking at some of the inane, insane, inconceivable, and ingenious Etsy merch inspired by Fall. I can’t help myself. I love the season, but I loathe the stuff.
