rainy-renegade

conditions were pretty intense at the renegade craft fair in chicago earlier today. the rain started in the morning and continued for hours and hours today. and it wasn’t a drizzle either; i am talking torrential downpours that left me soaked to the bone. i am happy to report that the shopping was absolutely terrific though, with plenty to see from vendors old and new. my camera survived thanks to the macgyver-styled ziplock bag cover i fashioned, and i came home with a big messenger bag filled with crafty goodness. i’ll be showing you the highlights in a few posts, starting with this one…

i really feel for the vendors who had to set up in the rain, which is just not letting up. hopefully it won’t deter buyers from coming to purchase some wonderful art. personally, i remain undaunted. i am so ready to shop! 🙂
