Chicago, the home of the Cubs, Derrick Rose, and the Renegade Craft Fair. Every year the Renegade craft fair comes to Wicker Park Chicago with 300+ Artists, food, music, and great products. New to the craft show scene Jennifer (Turquoise Feathers) and I decided to head up to Chicago and stay with a couple friends of our this past weekend, Alexz (bird trouble), James. These were two awesome people that we actually met at the INDIEana Handicraft Exchange this past June. After meeting at the festival in June we have been keeping in touch and thought we would spend some time with them.
The weekend was filled with great times in Wicker Park which included the fair, McDonald's, the office season 7 on DVD, estate sales, & #twitterlessjames. A friendship that begun with a simple handshake and twitter mention has blossomed into a great partnership of promotion between BirdTrouble & Turquoise Feathers.
We have already begun planning our next trip back up to Chicago to spend another great weekend in the most hipster and vintage neighborhood with Alexz and James, we are now in the process of everyday life. But sometimes Jennifer and I find ourselves thinking about the Chicago life wondering someday if that will be us.
I encourage you check out Alexz at birdtrouble.blogspot.com, she makes some amazing handmade clothing, bags, and accessories. And always check out the amazing Jennifer at turquoisefeathers.blogspot.com. Stay up to date by following me on twitter @normallyindie.
Till another Day,
