This is one of our occasional look at Etsy and all the Amish oddities one can find there. No shortage of them, that is for sure!
EGG APRON: If you have hens, this is for you, because unless you are collecting eggs from a hen house I can't imagine any other use. And, still, I'd have to think just using a bowl or a bucket would be easier than having 10 eggs rattling around in your clothing. That said, I guess I'd have to give this an A for creativity!

AMISH NOODLES: I'm not getting the vibe that these noodles are actually made by an Amish person, but they are made with an Amish recipe, spiced with some saffron and made into traditional Pennsylvania Dutch "pot pie" soup, take a look here.
BUGGY BIRD HOUSE: Okay, if I had an extra $40 to blow, I'd definitely get this. Look at the craftsmanship on it! The detail of the buggy shafts and wheels is exquisite! Click here for more.
AMISH COOKIE CUTTER? This cookie cutter does look pretty cool and very primitive. But I'm having trouble (not that it really matters) whether this was actually made by an Amish "tinsmith" in the 1800s or whether this cookie cutter was simply owned by an Amish person for many years. I mean, either way, it is a cool cookie cutter, but I couldn't tell. Click here to take a look!
AMISH BABY BIB? Problem with Etsy is that anyone could just slap the label "Amish" on something and how would you know? I mean, if an Amish lady really made these bibs they would be more valuable in my eye, but how does one know? I guess there is no way to know for sure, click here to see the bibs....
