renegade_handmade_2007_1i was like a kid in a candy store when i walked crisp and sunny division street yesterday to peruse the renegade craft fair in chicago. this event was much larger than those in prior years, with spectacular, high quality items from 200 crafters and artists. bonus: the fair is still taking place today (sunday) and many of the artists have online shops or etsy stores, so you might not miss as much as you thought! may i present just a small sampling…
