Here are some cool things to buy that can be found on etsy.com.
In honor of the late and legendary Joey Ramone’s birthday, is the Saint Joey Rosary. Featuring The Ramones frontman on a beaded chain, the rosary features a reproduction of artwork created by the seller. Very cool and totally worth the $21. Add it to the Joey Ramone shrine that I know all of you have in your bathroom.
Ramones fans can also purchase this lovely Gabba Gabba Hey cross stitch needlepoint for only $16.
For those that have the patience to actually create a needlepoint themselves, as well as a yearning to celebrate their love of John Hughes films, there are the Pixel People templates. This one features all the key players from the 1986 film, Pretty in Pink. For $6, you get a pdf file from the artist to use as a pattern for your creation. This is cool. Someone make this for me, please.For those that dig the anorexic look but don’t have time for all that pesky dieting, there’s the women’s tank top, embellished with cloth vertebrae. For $24.99, you too can look really, really skinny, and/or cartoony.
