If the upcoming Jan. 20 presidential inauguration has you thinking about how to mark that historical day, there are plenty of fashionable as well as undeniably odd Obama collectibles out there.
At Etsy, the online showcase for crafters, listings for Obama-related creations have ballooned in recent weeks to include everything from election-button earrings to a $39.99 carved Rhea egg portrait of the president elect. “The Rhea is the South American cousin to the Ostrich,” the online description explains, “and the egg is about 6 inches tall.”
The official Presidential Inauguration Committee offers stylish dinnerware, posters, clothing and more. Political accessories include trendy totes by designers Tory Burch ($70, above) and Diane Von Furstenberg and tees by fashion stars Narciso Rodriguez and Derek Lam, among others.
