Chicago Renegade Craft Fair

This past weekend was the Renegade Craft Fair in Chicago.  I was so excited to go and it was even better than I expected!  With over 300 artisans displaying their wares it was hard to narrow down a few faves, but here they are without further ado...
These necklace charms by Neogranny were made of wood!  So unique and fun!
Bright wooden pins by Neogranny.... Airstream trailers, cameras, globe earrings.
Birdy Nesting Bowls by Julie Guyot...

Button love! Nicole's Threads...
Make your own charm necklace station by Michelle Hartney.

Loved the garland made using maps!
How cool are these?  Lil' notebooks made using monopoly and baseball cards by Kelso Doesn't Dance...
Ain't this the truth?  By Slow Industries...
I first met Circle Street at the One Of A Kind Show at the Merchandise Mart last December...  Here she is again!  She makes super fabulous paper goodies...
Onesies packaged in Ball jars-cute!
She's from Wisconsin.  No wonder she's so likeable (that one's for you, Karah).
A mustache with a mustache!  How fab.  Mustachios By Shawnimals.
Stopped for lunch at a place called Milk and Honey.  My sis and I shared a roast beast sandwich and arugula salad (my favorite!).
Hot dog bib by Abbey Christine.  Chuckle.
And the only place we purchased something-Cristin Rae.  Gorgeous knit items.  Even though it was 84 degrees, we couldn't resist trying stuff on.
My sis bought this cool braided scarf...
Love the big knit cowls...
If you're in the Chicagoland area, in December at the Merchandise Mart is the "One of a Kind Show".  Everything is handmade and unique and amazing with over 600 vendors!  I highly recommend checking it out!  Support hand made!  Have you purchased anything hand made lately?  What's your favorite hand made item?

  1. Aw, shout out! Thanks Teen. Us Wisconsinites are good peeps. I wish I would have told you to visit my friend's taco stand at the fair. My friend Ashley runs Antique Kitchen and she has awesome food presentation skills. She is also super crafty. http://antiquekitchenchicago.com/home.html
