I can't wait for this:
The Renegade Craft Fair! Over 100 local artists selling handmade goodies just in time for the holidays. I am sure I'll be able to check off a number of items on my list this weekend! Last year I bought Mr. Q a screen print of our favorite bridge in the city from Hiroshi Arimaya, which I found at the event last summer.
This one takes place in Chicago at the Pulaski Park Fieldhouse, but there are other cities on the list as well (I'm looking at you Austin, LA & San Francisco!). I'm gathering a group of friends to go - perhpas we'll see you there!
