i was minding my own business driving down division last week and nearly crashed when i saw a papered up storefront and the words “renegade craft” on it. after further nancy drew investigation, i found out that sue and kathleen have a new, permanent shop which features some of their favorite craft artists. hurrah!

the shop is done in very soothing colors of cream and silvery sagey blue, and it has a heavy textile emphasis. at the moment, they’re showcasing vintage clothing, silkscreened tees, stationery, prints, journals, jewelry, plush items, and other wearable art.

it’s great that we have another fine locale that highlights indie craft. viva renegade!

the shop is located at 1924 w. division. read all about the fair and jump on their mailing list on their website.
