Etsy is a dream of a marketplace for the crafty, nostalgic and expert gift-givers alike. From personalized wine glasses to hand-crafted wall hangings, you can find quite literally anything on Etsy -- which is why it’s so popular. But it seems to have taken Steve Martin a long time to figure that out.
The actor and comedian went on what I’ll call a spiritual journey on Twitter yesterday upon finally, after his 75 years, uncovering all the potential that is Etsy.
He found himself in a rabbit hole of fashion and home goods, but drew the line at face-lifting devices.
Fans flooded his replies to either drop diamonds in the Etsy rough that they believed Martin would enjoy (a painting of cows and an old Campus Queen lunchbox, for example) or shamelessly plug their own Etsy shops. Imagine Steve freakin’ Martin purchasing one of your homemade bar soaps?! Instant online marketplace celebrity.
Others chose to point Martin in the direction of products designed after, well, him. Which got me thinking about what other Steve Martin-inspired Etsy products existed. Without further ado...
