Who told me about Etsy? Can they be punished somehow? So far, I have purchased Christmas cards, a button, a book, earrings, a necklace and 5 lip balms.
When you find me living in a cardboard box behind the train station, you can blame it on an Etsy addiction. So many things! So cute! And I am supporting artisans! All this shopping is for a good cause! Long live the artisans and their cute things! (my apologies to Amalah for borrowing her exclamation points.)
One thing I noticed - about oh, 99.7 percent of Etsy shops are run by women. Their prices tend to be ridiculously low. Check out these insanely cute baby shoes for $7.00! Crazy.
Then I find ONE shop by a man and his prices are well, a bit higher. These signs are really cool. but they are tiny little prints. Smaller than a postcard. And 8 are $51. It just makes me wonder about men and women. How is it that men seem to value themselves so highly, and women so little?
Thanks for all your comments on blogging and privacy. I really appreciate the perspective.
