Renegade favs

As promised, here's a list of some of my favs from the Chicago Renegade Handmade Craft Fair a couple of weeks ago. It took me a while, but I've finally waded through my bag of goodies and business cards. So much good stuff here. Now that I've processed it all (it was overwhelming!), I can get going on some holiday shopping. My goal this year is to try and purchase (almost) everything from local businesses or from small handmade artists. Join me?
