Etsy has this addictive featured called Pounce. Every time you press "Pounce Again" it shows you the items that were just sold. It's dead fascinating. Like you're peeking in someone's shopping bag. At times, seeing what treasures others have found makes you buy some too. Even though you pinky swore to your husband you were totally done with Etsy till payday.
Other times, you scratch your head in wonder and go, "Really? You bought that?". This is especially so late at night. Because this, is when the pantyliners appear. Every time the screen is refreshed a whole new crop of pantyliners go by. I suspect it's just one or two people making purchases of a dozen or so at a time. It's late, they've realized they are out of clean undies for morning and it reminds them to restock their hand sewn pantyliners.
Some of the liners are actually really pretty. So even though it makes me giggle, I get why people would buy them. It's the tampons that confound me. Really, reusable crocheted tampons? That's some serious environmental devotion.
Girl: I'm a vegetarian and I don't wear leather.
Girl 2: Well, I'm a vegan and I sew my own clothes out the hemp I grow in my basement.
Girl 3: I crochet my own tampons.
Clearly, Girl 3 wins.
