This past fall, I had the privilege of attending my first Renegade Craft Fair in Chicago. This outdoor street craft fair was a spectacle to behold. Chicago is a wonder of a city, particularly in the summer, when it comes alive. That September Sunday was a glorious day—clarion blue sky, not too hot, with just a hint of fall in the air. I set out with my family—my husband, my daughter 3 ½ years old and my son 2 ½ and maybe you guessed it already—not exactly the best companions to see a craft fair that runs several city blocks.
