Saturday my friend Abby and I went down to the Pulaski Park Fieldhouse to the The 6th Annual Renegade Craft Fair Holiday Market in Chicago. We’re quite the Renegade veterans these days, but I wasn’t prepared for the huge size of the crowd. It was a crazy-good turnout! Maybe I should have been and maybe my brain needs to catch up to the fact that it’s in Chicago and there are a ton of people in this city.
The venue and the event were both wonderful! There were booths set up upstairs and down and in lots of different rooms. Everywhere you turned there were pretty things, tasty things, and interesting conversations.
The Fieldhouse from outside and down the street a bit:
I didn’t take very many photos of the lovely booths, because I’m shy and feel awkward pointing my camera at someone else’s hard work. Some year, I’d like to take portraits of all the venders, but that would be a project for the bold.
A few views from the balcony in the large auditorium:
Abby and I both ended up bring headbands by home with us:
We needed a break from the crowds (We also needed to move the car. City parking!) so we went over to Wicker Park and popped into a few shops:
Lunch (for me breakfast) at Milk & Honey is a Renegade must!
It was a wonderful day!
