Etsy is both the most wonderful and horrible site in the entire world.
As a window-shopping time-suck for the slow moments in the life of a cubicle jockey, Etsy can both provide hours of entertainment and sheer genius at the same time.
When it is good, the shopping site can provide a devastating blow to the wallet. When it is bad, Etsy becomes a window to the soul of people who have both undiagnosed mental issues and a glue gun (RIP Regretsy).
However, looking beyond the “art” that consists of spraypainted tampons and knit hats for cats, Etsy can offer an outlet of expression for serious fandoms. The site can be a shopping haven for unique and original items that both glam up any habitat without making it look like Spencer’s had a fire sale.
Christmas is a far away, and you probably didn’t get what you really wanted for you birthday.
So, take a page from Donna and Tom’s handbook and “Treat Yo Self!” with these amazing, yet classy, items that celebrate the sitcom junkie.
Here are a few personal favorites:
Charlie Kelly’s musical opus about a little boy whose slumber is disrupted by trolls and possible rapists can now be yours forever in this wonderfully stylized poster that would make the folks at Mondo proud.
The Saul Bass-inspired look of the poster will class up any apartment while you discuss whether or not the lyric was “boy’s soul” or “boy’s hole.”
