The Renegade Handmade Story
Renegade started as a DIY craft fair in 2003 in Chicago's very own Wicker Park! Since 2003 it has grown tremendously and now takes place across the US in cities like Brooklyn, Austin, San Francisco and more! In 2007 Renegade opened a brick and mortar store in Chicago where they carry over 400 independent artists (who often participate in the fairs) and the shop also acts as the Renegade Craft Fair office/headquarters. I'm happy to have a small collection of work available at this awesome store that boasts all things handmade! What a great contribution to the Chicago handmade/craft/DIY community! Check out some photos below and if you're in the windy city I highly recommend heading over to Wicker Park and checking it out for yourself!
Have a wonderful weekend!
