renegade craft fair

A blissful weekend indeed. One I have been waiting for all summer! The Renegade Craft Fair was in Chicago this weekend and I had never been before. It was craft heaven.

We went Saturday afternoon and it was a beautiful sunny day. There were tons of clever things to look at and if you had the stealthiness of a ninja you may have been lucky enough to get a peek though the massive crowds. 

Okay, so it wasn't that bad. But there were a lot of people there. And the booths were pretty tiny. I often found myself perched on the tips of my toes, peering over unknown shoulders, just to see what was going on. 

I left with nothing but ideas and a few photos. 

The Plaid Pigeon
Matty Cipov

DC Ice

Little House Soap Co.

Raven and the Hunter

Kevin O'Rourke
I couldn't find the name of this shop. Anyone recognize it? 
We ended our day at the craft fair with the ultimate fall staple. Pumpkin spice lattes from Starbucks.

My first of the season!

I had a marvelous weekend, spent with marvelous people and I can't wait for next year!!


  1. Ooo Ooo love those lil' dino planters! The terrariums rock too, just scooped one up for a friend for her dorm room! What do you think of them for wedding decor? As usual your photos are tops!

  2. Oh my gosh! That looks like it was so much fun--I'm jealous. I think I missed the one they had in LA :/

  3. What an amazing weekend indeed. Can we go back??? And you got all the vendor's names to match with your photos!! Wow, go Amanda! Wish I could have seen more. Craft day soon!!
