Less than two weeks ago my friend Sofia and I drove to Chicago to participate in 8th Annual Renegade Craft Fair. I had high expectations about the show and OH MY! where they exceeded! We got lucky with beautiful weather and an awesome corner spot, right behind the Prick Cushion (heard lots of funny comments over those two days, ha-ha!). The fair was amazing! The atmosphere was so relaxed and fun for people to shop and enjoy sunshine. Ice cold sangria, beer and wine were sold right on the street. The food along the Division street was delicious, I can still taste it in my mouth! The crowds were flowing non-stop through our booth, we were demonstrating our massage candles, people were friendly and we had barely enough time to run to the restrooms. It was great! Here are a few pictures of Sofia and I.
We started driving at 3AM and met sunrise somewhere on I-94... It was drizzling in the morning but the sky cleared as soon as we set up our booth.
Breakfast from Alliance Bakery was just amazing! Morning breakfast was the only time of rest after the opening it was just go, go, go. We had an awesome time and I just wish I had more time to shop for myself as there were so many talented artists! I LOVE my Etsy peeps!
