Renegade Craft Fair Roundup!

by Erin on September 17, 2007

I made it down to the Renegade Craft Fair in Chicago yesterday, and it was great! I think I hit every booth (and gave away a lot of A Dress A Day tape measures) … I'm sorry if I missed you!

Where to start … the first thing I saw that I really wanted (and of course it was sold out) were these hedgehog notecards (so erinaceous!) from Papered Together. Want. Am watching her store to see when they come back in stock!

There were so many great print/stationery/card people at the fair, I had to restrain myself from buying a file cabinet's worth of cute paper. I did buy a postcard for my husband from Rar Rar (unfortunately not on their etsy site) that was a lyric from a Kanye song: "Chi-Town, We gon' show em how we get down" in fancy old-timey type. And I bought this from

I plan to frame it and put it in my son's room. So cute! (Although also, now that I look at it again, slightly scary!)

Other stuff I coveted, in randomish order:

I also got to talk with Nora and Benedikte of BurdaStyle, so expect some fun things to come out of that, too!

I did not buy any dresses at the fair, but I did make a new one to wear. I'll post it in the next couple days …
