Etsy Finds: Oddities and Curiosities

Friday, March 4, 2016

As some of you may know, I am (unapologetically) addicted to online shopping. It seems to me like whatever I want can only be found online, and in some cases, this is true. One of my favorite shops is Etsy (pretty sure you guys know about it already), and during the wee hours of the morning or evening, I am glued to the screen just browsing for things to add to my cart for future purchase.

Today, I'd like to give you a list of 6 things I found on Etsy that I find weird, a little funny, and/or something I want in my life. Here's to hoping you won't look at me funny from your end of the screen.


1. Parasitic, Extraterrestrial Maggot-Worm in a Jar

Just the word "jar" had me sold on this one, but the real treat comes from the "being" inside the jar itself. It has a longer title on Etsy, but I didn't mind since my thoughts were fixed on where I could place them in my room. God, if you could hear my brain right now, you'd think I'm a maniac.


It sells for ₱1,456.31 (excluding shipping, I guess), and I think it's a pretty good deal since it's sculptured and painted by hand. Oh, the joy I'd have waking up to this on my desk. Haha. 

Buy it HERE.


2. Smiling Eyeglasses Holder-Stand

While this item isn't necessarily odd, it's definitely something I need. As someone who wears glasses and sometimes forgets where they were placed, this is DIVINE. 


Even if I didn't wear glasses, I'd still want one of these for my shades or something (imagine the holder without the glasses - you'd just get a nose and a mouth smiling at you to double the fun, haha).

This costs 1,941.75 and ships from Connecticut, United States. Itching to get at least five of these for whatever.

Buy it HERE.


3. Human Tooth Bronze Bracelet

Promise, it doesn't look as creepy as it sounds. I've heard of people creating jewelry with their teeth (or other parts), and this is one I wouldn't mind wearing as long as it's my own teeth. 


Here's an actual description from the seller:
It's a cute gift for a special person with distinguishable space.
Hahaha, I find that funny for some reason. I don't have distinguishable space, but I'd love one of these. The sho even has tooth hair clips, tooth rings, and others. I'm surprised they haven't come up with a tooth hair band or something (or maybe they do but I didn't bother looking through).

This will cost you 904.26 but honestly, I don't think it's worth it (sorry, seller). I could probably do the same thing for less, and I get to choose which tooth I want pulled out to make one. Kidding.

Buy it HERE.


4. Urinal White Enamel Medical Display

I did not know this could be a thing. Seriously! A urinal? Who'd want that out in full display, all rusty and... weird? Probably me if I studied medicine and retained a love for creepy, weird stuff. But right now, the only urinal I want to see is in my bathroom.


Oddly enough, I think the price fits the item. You may get this (or have one customized for you at an additional cost) for ₱519.42. Any Med students reading this who want to get one? Up-top!

Buy it HERE.


5. 'Dead' Bookmark

I love this! As an avid reader and fan of creepy, strange things, it's an awesome bookmark to have in my collection. Imagine using this to mark Stephen King, or H.P. Lovecraft. Oh my. I wonder if you can get knife or 'pool of blood' bookmarks too?


This dude literally immersed himself in the books. Haha! This costs ₱1,213.59, and though I like it, I feel it's a little bit more than what I would be willing to spend on this (just a little, teeny bit).

Get it HERE.


6. Boadicea Vintage Cat Print

The moment I saw this, I KNEW I wanted this. I want the whole freaking collection (and I bet you'll want to as well, once you see the gallery). This is AMAZING! I'm neutral when it comes to pet-love and as long as it's cute and fluffy, I'm sold.



I didn't know I needed this in my life until I saw it. Do I hear a "yasss"?! Hahaha. The "epic-ness" of this alone is worth whatever it costs. The price ranges from ₱873.79 - ₱5,582.52 depending on the size (the largest available is Mounted Canvas 16x20 inches).

If you guys want to order, let me know so we can save on the shipping, haha. 

Buy it HERE.


Did any of these tickle your fancy? Tell me which one and let's both be weirdos together.

  2. Give it to Etsy for those odd finds haha... I've never ordered there actually but if ever I do I'd just go for the bookmark, or maybe that bracelet with a tooth because I sure as hell wouldn't be able to others if I keep those other 3 in my room. They think I'm weird as it is already I really don't want to further scare them haha...

  3. Only the Dead Bookmark appealed to me but I find it unreasonably expensive. The jar is somewhat creepy!

  7. Wow! I want to see your creations! I only recently got into air dry and polymer clay, and I'm generating ideas on what to do. I'm thinking of replicating some of the items on the list for myself. :)

  8. Hahaha, it's definitely pricey, which is why I'm thinking of recreating them. Love DIYs and crafts, so why not?

  9. Hahaha I don't get how these things are so expensive! :)) But the Dead Bookmark is pretty cool!

    1. I think I have a pretty good idea, haha. They're handmade, that's why. But yes. This is the reason why I'm planning to recreate them myself. Materials are cheaper than getting them ready-made.
