The prominently featured tagline on Boston e-commerce site Wayfair.com is “a zillion things home.” With that much stuff, at least some of it has to be unusual right, right?
Indeed. Click through the gallery above to see 15 of the weird items I came across on the site this week.
Some are obviously intentionally weird. Others I’m not so sure about.
As Wayfair — which neared $1 billion in sales last year — looks to join the ranks of public tech companies in coming months, I hope that “weird Wayfair” will only become more of a thing. Because to truly be the Web’s hub for home goods, I’m thinking Wayfair ought to embrace the oddballs among us.
