Though Etsy is making some changes, it appears that there are still quirky, one-of-a-kind finds to be had on the platform. Case in point: Local indie store Lit Up Chicago has just launched an Etsy shop to showcase handmade lights that aren't exactly like those you'd find at Ikea.
The selection includes a light made out of a reclaimed fan, a blow torch desk lamp, and another nifty creation made out of a trumpet. Take a peek at all the goods here. And since we're all about independent boutiques this week, don't be a stranger: pop by Lit Up Chicago's North Center brick-and-mortar next time you're in the hood.
