We all indulge in the guilty pleasure of fast fashion from time to time, but more frequently these days, we want to own things that were created by a passionate maker, ideally right here in the neighborhood. But, we don't always want to wait around for the next craft fair or flea market to get our hand-crafted fix.
Luckily, there's a veritable bounty of local creative entrepreneurs on Etsy, so we can get the goods without even having to leave the office. And, to help you avoid spending a whole afternoon scrolling though tons of Regretsy fodder, we're sharing our insiders' list of great local Etsy shops that peddle handmade treasures — take a look, add 'em to your Favorites, and start shopping!
