Until Further notice, Imadeyouabeard is officially our nominee for most awesome seller on Etsy. For those of you who are unfamiliar with Etsy, it is an online marketplace where artists and craftsmen can show and sell their work.
From Erin’s profile on Etsy: “My name is Erin, and I make beards. I grew up in Portland, where there are only two types of people: hipsters with beards, and lumberjacks with beards.”
“I was born without the ability to grow a beard, and now I make beards to help people like me blend in with their bearded compatriots.”
A noble pursuit, certainly!
I have no such trouble in growing a beard of my very own, but I have to admit I’m tempted to put one of these on my Christmas list. They just look so comfortable and full of good cheer. She also has a blog.
