Believe it or not, the holiday season is just around the corner, and sometimes finding something that’s special and unique can be a challenge. Whether you’re looking to get some early shopping done, or if you’re simply in the mood to browse some handmade items you won’t see anywhere else, don’t miss the highly-anticipated and aptly named, Renegade Craft Fair, happening on September 10th and 11th in Wicker Park in Chicago.


The Renegade Craft Fair is a curated fair showcasing clothing, art work, jewelry and everything in between. It’s a fair that was “founded by makers for makers” which celebrates the process and the product of all things DIY! Their mission is to create an environment that honors the talent of the exhibitors, while offering a fresh outlook on modern day handmade products.

Browsing the booths is a definite visual treat, but the overall environment is special too. Artisanal food and drink offerings and live music set the tone for a day full of shopping. Even if you leave empty handed, you’ll still be inspired by all the fair has to offer.
