Renegade Craft Fair

Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket

Just a couple snapshots of my booth at the Renegade Craft Fair in Chicago this past weekend.  The weekend went by so fast, but I am glad I met some amazing people, enjoyed yummy eats (The Urban Vegan), got a healthy dose of vitamin D, and made the round trip safely!

I had a very talented and enjoyable booth partner (Jane E Roberti Jewelry). Check out her pearl rivet rings... so gorgeous!!

Lacking the ink, I turned to my trusty espresso machine!
