OK, you’re going to love this niche art business.
Bruckner launched a Tumblr site — Spaghetti Toes — that’s dedicated to the absurd things he hears under his roof on a daily basis. I’ll let him explain:
Some are said by me, some by my wife, but most by my wonderful 2-year-old daughter, Harper Grace.
The name ‘Spaghetti Toes’ comes from my wife saying to my daughter ‘Please don’t put spaghetti between your toes’ at the dinner table. I said to my wife, ‘Did you actually just say those words?’ and Spaghetti Toes was born.”
So how is this a niche business?
Well, Bruckner creates drawings that are based on the stuff he hears. He then collected the drawings and published a book. Now he sells his art on Etsy at a store called Harp & Squirrel.
At the Etsy shop you also can submit one of your kids’ quotes, and Bruckner will create a custom piece of artwork (the angry eyebrows piece was made for a customer). Harp & Squirrel also sells custom-designed burp cloths and pacifiers.
