Etsy and Irrationality

An example of my personal irrational decision making: I recently ordered several handmade and vintage golf ball markers on Etsy. Some have cool skull and crossbone logos and some are made of unique materials with a motto, my initials, etc. I love these silly things. Do I “need” them in any way, shape or form? Heck no. Golf courses give away the cheap plastic ones for free. Or you can use a coin. Or a tee. Pretty much anything, really.

Here’s the thing – I spent $70 and I would have happily paid more. The good people at Etsy, in my opinion, are not charging enough. Makes one think, no?
