renegade craft fair, part 1

This was my second Renegade Craft Fair and I feel so lucky that I’ve gotten to go two years in a row. Maybe it was the perfect weather or the fact that Abby and I are now totally awesome Renegade veterans, but I enjoyed this year even more than last. The variety of the booths was wonderful!

I took so many photos at the fair so today I’ll just share booth and shopping photos.

Our first stop was at Little Things Studio‘s booth. Kate was so sweet and engaging. She did a fab job of making everyone who stopped by to look at her things feel welcome and even like old friends.

The turn out was a lot bigger than last year, maybe because the sun was out.

The crowds made it a little tricky to get good photos of booths, but I thought this one was kind of genius! A make your own charm bracelet or necklace set with a menu-like sign, love it!

One of my favorite parts of the fair is recognizing things that I’ve seen and loved online in person. It’s almost like recognizing a friend in the crowd! I love these state necklaces by Truche and For Strange Women had a booth as stunning and well-styled as her photos always are.

I was down to my last dollar (literally) by the time we got to made by hank’s booth. Good thing she has a wonderful Etsy shop!

Oh, and the fringe on her booth was quite pretty!

Renegade Part Two will be all about treats, purchases and a pretty Wicker Park apartment. Did you have an adventure this weekend?

  1. I really wasn’t as impressed with this years as last… maybe I didn’t look in the right places but it was so crowded I couldn’t barely get in anywhere.

    • I thought this year had a better mix. Last year it felt like every other booth was typewriter jewelry or not-so-cute stuffed monster things.

      The crowd was bigger for sure! We did a couple of sweeps because there were booths we just couldn’t get into the first time around.
