Renegade Craft Fair, Chicago 2014

Renegade Craft Fair took place in Chicago again the weekend before last. I think I first had a booth in the show for my stationery shop back in 2006, and it was a huge part of my business for years. Even after no longer exhibiting, Brandon and I have been back just about every year (we bring the kids with), and its interesting to see how it has changed and grown. Here are some of my favorites from the 2014 Chicago show!

      I heard that they were there, but I must have missed them. So cool to be able to make your own shoes — I don’t know why it seems hard, but it does!

        Well, someday consider taking a class! The beginning shoe class is very fun and you come home with cool boots!

    Thanks for dropping by & sharing Dolan’s latest work! Love this round-up as Dolan and I saw so little at the show. Believe it or not, those are collages (versus paintings), each and every piece hand-cut paper applied to wood panel. xoxo — Ali Marie Geiman
