Elbedritsch PA Dutch Tarot Wrap Pouch

$25.00

Let's get this out of the way...
"Elbedritsches are fanciful, birdlike creatures that the Pennsylvania Dutch tell their young ones to go catch in a paper sack so that grown-ups can have a good chuckle. Elbedritsches are something like snipes. That is, they are imaginary.

What is the proper spelling? C. Richard Beam and Joshua R. Brown’s “The Comprehensive Pennsylvania German Dictionary” lists “elbedritsch” first and a dozen spelling variations thereafter; for example, “elbegricksel.”

The Elusive Elbegricksels!"
-from Lancaster Online's The Scribbler

While I'll argue with the notion that they're imaginary all day, this gives you an idea!
