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!

The Renegade Craft Fair, Chicago 2011

The ninth annual Renegade Craft Fair took place here in Chicago over the weekend. The show was so good this year! Here are the goodies we brought home with us.


Tiger Baby Onesie from Pinecone+Chickadee, Jack and Jill Pins from NeoGranny, and Wine Bottle Topper from The Small Object

If you’d like to see more from the show, I put together a huge recap of my favorites featuring almost 50 artists!

New Marimekko Shop

Crate & Barrel has created a Marimekko shop-in-shop at the Chicago location, and I was invited today to check it out. Everything was just as bright and fun as you’d imagine. There were a lot of blues and greens, but you know me… drawn to pink every time.

Marimekko likes to reduce waste and reuse as much as possible. We made necklaces out of jersey scraps, leftover from the manufacturing of their clothing.

I also modified the necklace I was wearing (thanks to Barri’s genius input).

There will eventually be twenty of these shops across the country over the next three years, but everything is available online too. Well, everything except my necklaces. And the Marimekko fabric by the yard. (Oh, how I loved the fabric.)
