We just got back from the Renegade Craft Fair this afternoon.  It was our fourth year doing it, and what can I say? It was awesome!  Fabuloso!  Best ever!  I love Chicago.

We went up on the Skydeck on a clear day.  We don't usually do the tourist thing, but Greg suggested it and it seemed silly not to!

 It's so real that it looks fake!

We used a new earring display made from louver blinds that the gracious owner didn't need any more.  It think it worked really well and made it easier to see the earrings.

I modified my branch display to better showcase necklaces, and it received many complements.

And we got to see Mucca Pazza up close and personal.  They were fantastic.  I wish they would come to Nashville - that is a live show I would pay to go see!

We were so busy that we didn't get to talk to many of our crafty friends, and from the sounds of it, they had awesome shows, too!  And for the first time, I was too busy to really shop my heart out.  So sad.  I did manage to sneak in the purchase of another Nate Duval t-shirt (Greg's 5th shirt by him) and an Urban Posture t-shirt that I am currently wearing.  People and events such as Renegade remind me how much fun my job is!
