Etsy Find of the Day: Vintage Medical Charts

Call it "Science Chic."

These vibrantly colored vintage anatomical charts feature intricate and beautifully rendered studies of our inner workings. Though they once hung in a medical school, I think they're totally worthy of the walls in our homes as well.

Each chart measures an impressive 4 feet, and is $100 from Etsy seller Ortolan. (Update: Sorry folks, every last one of these sold today.)

Not that I don't love vintage medical charts b/c I do think they're pretty cool....but isn't it odd that they're being sold on Etsy? Isn't Etsy the place to buy and sell all things "hand-made"? This seems like something that should be on ebay or craigslist.

I remember when ebay first entered the scene back in the late 1990's. It was sooo great! Individual people selling all sorts of cool things at reasonable prices. And now it's turned into a cacophony of overpriced knockoffs and junk. I'd hate for that to happen to Etsy too.

Well, Partially Insane, Etsy sells "vintage" as well as "hand-made".

And I love it. I was just thinking the other day how I used to look at this awesome medical dictionary when I was a kid. It had transparent pages that had bones, then organs, and muscles, and so on. Sooo freaking cool!
