Part of me thinks Etsy was deliberately designed to repel men. I know reading that must make the Etsy people cringe, but you have to agree that it is not the most “rugged” of places. With all of that said, I clean up over there on vintage stuff. Everything pictured here I bought in the last two weeks. It’s like fishing with dynamite over there.
All of this Etsy shopping makes me realize what a shit show eBay can be. Everyone is trying to snipe you on eBay and if you do happen to win you get ripped off on the shipping. It definitely still has an amazing power to deliver you anything you could possibly want at anytime, but the bay sure ain’t what it used to be.
It is amazing to me that Etsy hasn’t implemented some sort of section / tab for men’s stuff*. Maybe Etsy doesn’t care or maybe it is unnecessary, or maybe I am wrong and guys are shopping that piece like gangbusters. Either way, I’ll be enjoying my morning coffee from the set of enamel mugs I just acquired from the site.
*Any of the Etsy folks are listening, I’m down to assist on the guy stuff front — drop me a line.
