Original Post

A friend of mine was discussing his vintage gift shop with me, and he laughingly said that he and his wife had declared a moratorium on owl merchandise... owls are huge sellers but they don't want to be the Owl Place. He was skeptical about getting anymore deer stuff too... that made me wonder, who the heck decides what animal is IN? Search for an owl and you get billions of items here on etsy. What is it about owls that is so damn appealing? What's gonna be next? Me, myself, I like coyotes (as an example, searching for coyote brings up 13 pages on etsy! a search for owl brings ****519****).....

Anyone else have fascinating insight? Puh-lease, it's 5am here, I need someone to humor my bizarre early morning diatribes..... :P

I really love foxes. I want them to make a big return.

No one decides what animal is cool per se. Except for me. Now everyone go make more fox stuff!

Foxes. And humans dressed in bear suits. I kid you not.

I seem to be seeing birds everywhere I look! Little birdies. Has anyone else noticed this trend?

How about robot hedgies dancing with humans in bear suits being eaten by foxes!
