so, i guess unless you've been living under a rock, you've heard of the renegade craft fair.
renegade originated in chicago, the charming wicker park to be exact. well, guess who has family right outside of wicker park? the same someone whose birthday is september 12th... if this isn't all coming together for you, take a look at the dates...
needless to say, i know what i'll be doing for my birthday this year! i wanted to go last year but didn't make it, & i can't wait this year! i should start saving money now; i tend to go a little overboard at these types of things... maryland sheep & wool festival, cough cough, $300 on roving & yarn, cough cough.
renegade handmade is the permanent store they opened in 2007 on division street. if you aren't able to come to the fair or the store in person, they have a great online shop with all sorts of great stuff. a few things i'm loving right now:
hearts & hares cross stitch kit
sploth wooden wall plaque
domino eyesight ring
i heart illinois necklace
let's ride tote gemma corell! ♥
while i'm anxiously waiting for september, i'll be checking out a few more local crafty events...
pile of craft in baltimore is set up by charm city craft mafia & will have over 40 vendors, according to the website.
& though it means waiting until october,
