I’ve written about Etsy before. If you don’t know Etsy, you should. It’s the coolest site on the web. Ok, well, it’s the coolest site on the web if you’re into DIY (do-it-yourself) crafts, projects, art, fashions, etc.
I don’t remember how I discovered Etsy–oh, wait, yes I do, it was an ad in ReadyMade Magazine.
I’m getting to the purpose of this post in a moment, I swear.
Anyway, I went to a birthday party last week, for two friends (that I met through Eduardo) who are just about as cool as Etsy (not to mention they are two of the most attractive people in San Diego). At the party was this neato woman who had the funniest tattoo. It was a moustache, tattooed to her finger, so that when she put her finger under her nose it looked like a little drawn ‘stache under her nose. It was hilarious. I’m probably really behind the times on this but it was new to me.
It got me thinking about how much I love mustaches. (ok, I just typed moustaches, but my spell check told me it was wrong!–what gives? Is moustache the European spelling and mustache the redneck spelling?).
A few months ago, you may remember, I bought this fun felt badge with a mustache on it (from MooseandBear— a great Etsy seller).
So yesterday I decided to do a search on Etsy for more mustache items and low and behold there are a TON! It’s easy– all you have to do is type in “Mustache” (or Moustache) in the search engine on the Etsy website, and a whole bunch of Moustache items appear, such as:
These ginger mustaches– party favors for your guests to wear. (from the seller Lupin)
This Ron Burgundy felt doll with that funky lil ‘stache. (from Kezzaroo)
This mustache book bag. (from Eriogonum)
This awesome print, called “Mustache Princess” (from CuriousZoo)
And, of course, the item i’m STILL pining for…
The Mustache Comb Necklace. (by Makool)
Wouldn’t I look cool with that? Tiny running shorts on, and striped tubesocks pulled up to my knees, my shirt unbuttoned down to my navel and the mustache necklace swinging like a pendulum between my chiseled pecs?
