renegade handmade rocks.

i’ve been a traveling mess as of late. in the past 2 weeks i’ve spent approx 50 hours on planes… ugg! – (this helps explain the hiatus of posts) – and while hopping on another plane for a long trek doesn’t sound the least bit exciting at the moment – i am ecstatically counting down the 29 days left until i hop on board for an overdue journey to my motherland. yes, usa – i’m coming home for a 3 week jaunt filled with a little r&r, catching up w/ friends & family, a wedding, 2 baby celebrations, a birthday… AND the renegade craft fair!

renegade are the folks that not only bring you their charming little headquarters which double as a retail shop on division ave. in chicago’s wicker park — but they are also the folks that bring you one of the best & biggest diy festivals to tour the us of a.
