Crafty encounters of an Etsy kind – today’s word: Obama



Last week we looked at Etsy art tagged “Clinton” – this week we’re exploring the connection between crafters and Obama drama.

Currently there are 230 items tagged “obama” on Etsy. (hmmm, this suggests to me that Etsy sellers are more into Obama ’cause there are only 122 items tagged “clinton” today…)

Here are five of my favourite picks:

hillary_one.jpg Item: You Barack my world refrigerator magnet
Seller: nowvember
Price: $2.00
hillary_one.jpg Item: HOPE on a ROPE – POLITICAL Soap – Barack OBAMA SOAP
Seller: dugshop
Price: $20.00
hillary_one.jpg Item: Bulldogs 4 Barack
Seller: alfieandrex
Price: $4.00
hillary_one.jpg Item: Barack Obama framed watercolor, Neil Jam style
Seller: NeilJam
Price: $25.00
hillary_one.jpg Item: Obama, llama, wool, mohair, alpaca, roving, spin, felt,
Seller: fraydknot
Price: $9.95

If I’ve learned anything from this exercise, it’s that Hilary inspires much better art… hands down.
