Craft Spotlight: The Victory Garden of Tomorrow

Do yourself a favor and check out artist Joe Wirtheim’s line of gorgeous, colorful, and inspiring (in the best, non-cheesy way) prints at The Victory Garden of Tomorrow. Seeking a new and meaningful project, Joe looked to propaganda posters of the past and found inspiration in their calls to action. From there, he created what he calls a “New American Propaganda” encouraging simple, green, and good living. The results? Some of the most beautiful and engaging prints we’ve seen. Check out Joe and The Victory Garden of Tomorrow at the RCF Holiday Markets in Austin, Chicago and San Francisco.

I Want That: An Austin Showcase

Hang around Renegade HQ long enough, and you’re bound to hear one of us utter “I wawnt that” in the style of a certain scene from a certain movie. Looking at the awesome lineup of artists for our upcoming first-ever Renegade Craft Fair Holiday Market in Austin (woohoo!), we find ourselves saying that a lot. Here’s a tiny sample of what I “wawnt” today.

Clockwise from top: Pennant Pocket Mirrors by weather&noise, Quilt Print by Little Things Studio, Painted Antler by Amber Perrodin, Moose Tea Towel by Leah Duncan

Spotlight: Debbie Carlos

This month the Spotlight Series presents: Debbie Carlos.

The Renegade Gang created an awesome, autumnal backdrop for Debbie’s work.

Amazing what a few maple tree branches, some gnarled logs, and Debbie’s beautiful prints can do!

We have dozens of prints in the shop, ready for you to take home.

Debbie Carlos’s photography explores the idea of nature both in its natural and imitated forms, and her prints, which come in various sizes, are certain to bring life to any room. To read more about Debbie and her work, click here.

London Calling!

londonbestof

London has a little something for everyone, and it’s a rare occurrence that it’s the same city twice. With so much to do in this vibrant metropolis, we called upon or local vendors for their favorite gems in the city they call home.

Have a cuppa and a crumpet, tip your hat to Big Ben, toast DIY crafts at a pub, and be sure to check out all of the amazing vendors joining us for the Fair. Read on for a creative selection of must-dos, and we hope to see you out & about, and October 8 + 9 at our 1st Ever Renegade Craft Fair in London!

London has an amazing selection of markets to browse. While we are partial to shopping at our Fair, when not browsing the wares at RCF, Alice Gabb suggests Broadway Market on Saturdays, and Columbia Road Flower Market on Sundays. Kate, of One/of a kind boutique, seconds Columbia Road, and says you will find not only flowers, but a great selection of “art, cupcakes, vintage fashion and furniture.” Andrea of roxypop agrees, and says “I really enjoy taking the tube to Aldgate East station and walking through Brick Lane, picking up some tasty treats at the food stalls and then walking straight through to the flower market. This route also means that we are lucky enough to stop by the Tatty Devine store and check out their rotating exhibits!”

While not exactly a market, Andrea also suggests a stop on Maltby Street. She explains,  “Maltby is a small gathering of London’s finest purveyors of food and drink opening its doors for the public to see what they do and to do their weekend food shopping. The list of stalls here is quite impressive including Monmouth Coffee, Neal’s Yard dairy and bakery, The Kernal Brewery and La Grotta Ices.” Yum. We’ll take one of each!

For other shopping options, Kim, from Art Equals Happy, recommends Prick Your Finger as a must “For anyone with an interest in knitting, crochet, spinning and other woolly things! They have a super unique and handmade outlook on the world of craft as well as being really lovely ladies. Plus all the wool sold in their shop is made in the UK- so it’s perfect if you fancy a little non-tourist souvenir. Located near Bethnal Green, it’s a short bus/bike ride away from the Renegade venue!”

If you need to send a note back across the pond, or elsewhere, Kate from One/of a kind boutique suggests popping into Shelf for “delicious stationery,” and Andrea of roxypop also cites Blitz as another must-shop while in London. She explains, “this vintage department store was started by a group of established vintage dealers and carries furniture, books, records, clothing and accessories for both men and women, and soon, an on-site cafe that will serve coffee from a converted vintage Fiat car.” This sounds right up Renegade’s alley!

Between shopping at the Renegade Craft Fair and the other hot spots around town, one is bound to get thirsty or hungry, so you might as well ease out of your spending spree with a shop that has food and bevvies. Anna, from A Alicia, has just the fix and suggests a stop at Drink, Shop & Do, “a gorgeous vintage inspired cafe/cocktail-bar/shop, 2 minutes from Kings Cross station, in a converted Victorian Bathhouse!”

Alice Gabb’s favorite hidden gems for food are Violet Cafe on Wilton Way and Hackney City Farm, and Kate from One/of a kind boutique suggests Story Deli – RCF’s Sara concurs, as their pizza ranks in her top five meals of all time!

For drinks, Parul, of Just Noey Ltd., enjoys a pint at Ye Olde Mitre Pub, explaining it is “probably one of the oldest in London, and  literally  hidden in an Alley way.” If tea is more your style, Parul suggests a trip to “The first ever Twinings Tea Shop that opened in 1705. It houses all their teas and coffees and is a really nice place to buy gifts for people back home.” English breakfast, with milk and sugar, please.

To escape the hustle and bustle around town Katie, of POPCORNY, suggests a stroll along the canal that connects Camden, Islington and Shoreditch. She says, “I would recommend first taking the tube to Angel, turn right, locate ‘Camden Passage‘ a hidden gem of a street behind the main bustle. You’ll find some interesting brick a brack/antiques and cafes within this narrow little street. Then turn back and walk down Duncan Street and down onto the canal. On a sunny day it’s peaceful watching the narrowboats making their way through the old fashioned locks… if you keep going you’ll find a lovely bar called Narrowboat, perfect for a drink overlooking the canal.”

Parul, of Just Noey Ltd., recommends the South Bank Walk, “starting from the West- the Dali Museum/London Eye near Waterloo to the Design Museum to the East.” A suggestion is to “try spotting St. Bride’s Church. Apparently the architecture of church inspired the modern day tiered wedding cakes.”

Anna, of A Alicia, suggests a stroll through Victoria Park to see the autumnal colors, and also recommends a stop by the The V&A (her “absolute absolute favourite museum”) to check out the current exhibition, Power of Making. Every crafter and lover of crafts will be happy to “celebrate the role of making in our lives.” We couldn’t have said it better ourselves.

Blighty, you couldn’t be better – we are so excited to host our first Fair abroad in London!

A huge thank you to our local vendors for all of their must-dos!

Please comment below if you have any London city tips to add, and we will see you soon! Cheers!

London Showcase: Autumn Hues

Sweaters, pumpkin-based beverages, soup, and crunchy leaves – autumn has a lot to recommend it, wouldn’t you say? It’s no wonder our thoughts have drifted to the crispest season. In the spirit of apple orchards, tall boots, and scarves, here’s a round-up of some autumn-colored wares you will find at the first-ever Renegade Craft Fair London.

The Renegade Gang Presents: Sweet Home Chicago!

rcfgangexperts

The Renegade Gang loves dishing on all things local, and with our 9th Annual Fair returning to Division Street, we wanted to share our picks for our favorite things to do in sweet home Chicago!

Some might say we moved our office to Pilsen to find a new home for the ever-expanding RCF, but the Renegade Gang knows the truth: we moved to be closer to everyone’s favorite tater-tot chomping, beer swilling, photo booth snapping watering hole The Skylark!

Read on for more local fun to enjoy while in town for the Fair, and be sure to say hi to us – and our amazing vendors – when you stop by Division Street this weekend!

When not crafting cuckoo clocks extraordinaire for Black Forest Works, and dealing with all things RCF related, partners in crime Sue & Mat Daly enjoy all the food & fun Chicago has to offer. Sue says, “MANA is my favorite Wicker Park restaurant.  It’s all veggie, but you won’t miss the meat!” They also suggest Handlebar and El Barco Mariscos for other great eats.

Sue & Mat als0 recommend popping into one of the great bars along Division while visiting the Fair. Sue says “I love Happy Village – it’s nice to be able to sit outside with friends in their beer garden!” Other favorite local (and somewhat dive-y) bars include Gold Star, Innertown Pub,  and Phylis’ Musical Inn. For shopping, they get their vinyl fix at Reckless Records, and browse the vintage racks at US #1.

Madelon seconds the fun to be had at Happy Village, and also suggests a trip to Honky Tonk BBQ in Pilsen to enjoy “the best Manhattan in the city, a really fantastic collection of folk art,  and live music.” Don’t tell Richie (Madelon’s favorite waiter at Honky Tonk), but Madelon says she would marry Lula Cafe if she could. Stop by this Logan Square restaurant to see if you agree.

Madelon also loves a great vintage find, so after you get your craft fix at the Fair, she suggests a stop at KOKOROKOKO or a trip to Knee Deep Vintage, noting “the Friday night before the Fair is their ‘midnight sale’, they have free drinks, hotdogs (sometimes) and 25-50% off everything!”

Kevin, who can find fun anywhere, at any time, notes, “I’m a huge fan of Logan Hardware – buy any record there and you can play their collection of old arcade games all day. I also love going to the Montrose dog beach and playing with dogs that aren’t mine.” Sounds like Kevin will be spending his free time at the Greyhounds Only booth when not holding down the fort at Renegade Handmade this weekend.

Crafty lady Meg, vending at her White Nest booth, says a “must go-to for any crafter/lover of fabrics: Fishman’s Fabrics, hands down; and if you don’t mind getting your hands a little dirty, visit Brown Elephant in Boystown for some furniture thrifting.”  For food, Meg cites “the best sushi in town” can be found at Roll ‘n’ Bowls in Edgewater, noting: “word to the wise, it also the smallest restaurant I’ve ever been to so go early! It’s worth the wait!” Speaking of waits, Meg also recommends the mac-n-cheese at Kuma’s Corner.

Sarah echos the love for Kuma’s and says the “Lair of the Minotaur will change your life.” If heavy metal burgers aren’t your thing, she also suggests a trip to Tre Kronor in Albany Park– “a super quaint Swedish restaurant with the world’s greatest salmon + dill omelette.” Right across the street, she recommends a trip to The Sweden Shop for “a crazy awesome selection of Scandinavian housewares.” For other crafty shopping near the Fair, Sarah digs Nina: a well-knit shop, and if you need a lunch alternative while browsing along Division,  Sarah (and many of the Renegade Gang) enjoys a trip to Janik’s Cafe. Buy your favorite Renegader a brownie, turkey wrap, or some ice cream and we will love you forever. Truth.

Logan Square resident & ceramicist, Ali, of Maker & Maker, says “Cafe Mustache is my favorite coffee shop– and they do a great job supporting local music.” She also recommends Schuba’s in Lakeview, or the Epiphany Episcopal Church in the Near West Side as great music venues in the city. For bibliophiles in town for the Fair, Ali says “Myopic Books smells amazing, has a great selection, and is open late!” Ali is also a fan of the veggie dog at Hot Doug’s.

Sara seconds Hot Doug’s as a must-do when in Chicago, and recommends the duck-fat fries and a celebrity sausage. If late night dogs are your thing, trek over to The Wiener’s Circle, “just be prepared for the antics that may ensue if you take too long to order.” If you fancy a drink while on the north side of town, Sara suggests the L&L Tavern and Gingerman for “cheap beers and amazing jukeboxes,”  or a trip to Huettenbar for a “German-inspired tavern frozen in time.”

Crafters and fairgoers alike will enjoy a trip to Uncle Fun, where Sara says “You can enjoy nostalgic toys and ephemera from your childhood, and for less than $3 you can snag a bunch of quirky plastic do-dads you never knew you needed, but have to have!” If you are exhausted from vending at your booth, or shopping at the Fair, Sara recommends grabbing a quick slice of pizza from Ian’s and relaxing with a movie at the old-timey Music Box Theatre.

Justin prefaces his Chicago recommendations by saying, “I know Bridgeport is kind of off the beaten path of where most outta-towners stay, but…” and goes on to mention many favorite gems including Nightwood which according to him is “pricey but well worth it. They don’t have a ton of veggie options, but great bloody marys and amazing Sunday brunch.  It’s cozy and nice looking too!” If libations are your thing, Justin suggests Maria’s for ” the best beer selection in Chicago, great djs, and an awesome new patio!”

For off the beaten path fun while south of the loop, Justin recommends visiting Malelo Camera Co., or Stearns Quarry Park.  To get your culture on he recommends James Turrell’s Skyspace, “a cool art installation by my favorite artist, best if experienced at sunrise or during a torrential rainstorm” or Co-Prosperity Sphere, “an amazing space with consistently great shows, often with live music and booze.”

Renegade Gang, thanks for all of your awesome recommendations, and Chicago – thank you for being the city that Renegade calls home!

We’ll see you this weekend at the Fair!

(no rain no rain no rain no rain no rain!)

Kozie Prery

kozie

Erin Rensink of Kozie Prery is a true renegade crafter. She started making caps after being laid off from her job as an architect. Not one to whine about her lack of employment, she decided to dust off her sewing machine and start crafting. After going through several prototypes and consulting cyclists all around Chicago, Erin came up with one of the best cycling caps around. (Total number of folks in the Renegade Gang who wear Kozie Prery caps: 3!)

kozie2

Stacks of recycled material become stacks of awesome caps.
Kozie Prery caps are now the go-to cap for cyclists in Chicago and beyond. But even if you’re not living a two-wheeled lifestyle, you can totally rock one of these sleek, eco-friendly (each cap is made from 100% recycled materials, like golf shirts and fleeces!), and impeccably made caps.

kozie3

Kozie Prery caps: Dudes like ’em too!
And, you guessed it, Kozie Prery will have a booth at this weekend’s Renegade Craft Fair Chicago! The Fair is totally bike-friendly, and you’ll find extra bike parking around Division St. the weekend of the Fair. The perfect day for a ride and a bike cap.

Sweet Home Chicago!

sweethomechicago

Chicago is known as the second city, but to its locals it is second to none!

The city that The Renegade Craft Fair calls home has many a gem to be discovered, and we reached out to our local experts – vendors selling at our 9th annual Fair – for their favorite things to do in their sweet home Chicago. Enjoy their picks for windy city fun (stay tuned for special picks from the RCF Gang), and be sure to check out all of the amazing vendors along Division Street on September 10 + 11!

~To Eat~

Let’s face it, Chicagoans love their food, and make no apologies for waxing on about meals morning, noon, and night. Caitlin of Wanderlustings enjoys the pizza and infused vodka flights at Crust, or the sweet pea flatbread at Volo, while Jenny Beorkrem of Ork Posters digs Publican for brunch and comfort food at Big Boy Gyros. Self proclaimed foodie, Angel, from AD LOVE, suggests The Bedford. Located on Division near the Fair, she says,”the vibe is cool with an old vault and bank decor. They have great oysters, deviled eggs, octopus and pasta. yummm.”

In Lakeview, Rosamund of Wonder Wheel loves Crisp for Korean friend chicken and ice cream from Bobtail. In Wicker Park, Stephanie from truche says the BBQ at Lillie’s Q is a must do, and Barbara from Kinaloon cites her favorite restaurant as Handlebar. Downtown, Michelle Hartney suggests dining on tortas and guacamole at XOCO.

Attalie from Shades of Grey says “Chicago visitors always seem to want to try deep dish pizza. I know this is a great debate, but I definitely recommend just getting Pequods delivered! They have great pizza and you don’t have to deal with the crowds!” Mitsu from Brown Sparrow’s Nest suggests no trip to Logan Square is complete without a stop at Longman & Eagle or Revolution Brewing, and Nate & Emma at Steadfast Bags also suggest popping over to Small Bar where you can find them “eating the lawnboy with sweet potato fries and enjoying a pint.”

When not busy printing greeting cards for food lovers, Julie of Nourishing Notes can be found dining at any of her favorite Chicago spots including Gene’s Sausage Shop, Old Fashioned Donuts, Bari, or the Green Grocer. She suggests a must-do dining experience at Sun Wah BBQ stating it’s “the perfect spot to celebrate a successful Renegade with a group of friends and fellow crafters. They specialize in their duck, and by specialize I mean if you go there and DON’T get the duck, you perhaps wasted your time. Call ahead to reserve your duck, then gather up at least 5 or 6 friends, pick up a healthy amount of beers (it’s BYOB) and prepare to be amazed as your duck is carved table side.”

Another Northside gem, according to Jen of Starshaped Press, is Drew’s Eatery. She explains, “Drew is super awesome, and specializes in hot dogs and ice cream with an eco-friendly bent. All of the foods are locally sourced and ethically produced, and he has great options for vegetarians/vegans. He’s also the only place scooping Ruth and Phil’s ice cream in the city.”

~To Enjoy~

Chicago is home to many entertaining things to do, booth indoors and out, with every neighborhood holding a wealth of fun. Albert of The Found states that “no one that visits Chicago should miss the amazing, and slightly creepy, International Museum of Surgical Sciences.” Located just steps form the Lake on Michigan Avenue, Albert says, “They have a total of over 7,000 medical artifacts to be exact. The iron lung and their elegant oil paintings are probably my favs. You can grab lunch downtown, hit the museum and still have time for a stroll by the lake.”

For a more serene stop in the city, Lydia from Pierogi Picnic suggests the Lincoln Park Alfred Caldwell Lily Pool, while Debbie Carlos enjoys a visit to the North Park Nature Center to unwind. Betsy of Foxglove Accessories suggests a visit to The Cultural Center, explaining it is “a beautiful building downtown that has rotating art shows and exhibitions on Chicago’s history. It was the city’s old library and has the most beautiful literature-themed mosaic and glass work inside. Oh, and it’s FREE!”

If you are looking to put some pep in your step in lieu of unwinding while in town for the Fair, Peggy Skemp encourages you to enjoy the comedic stylings of Tj and Dave at Improv Olympic, in Lakeview, Wednesday nights. She goes on to say “It’s so so soooooo funny that I buy my tickets in advance for this $5 show that often sells out. Usually there are a handful of celebrities there. Why? Because TJ and Dave are considered to possibly be the best improv act in the world!”

If comedy isn’t your thing Despina from Happy Despina says “If you like shaking your tail feathers, you have to stop by Danny’s Tavern, located just up the street from the fair at Dickens and Damen! It’s the place to go in Chicago to dance to Soul, Funk and Old School Hip Hop. It’s cash only and at $4/drink… you can’t get a better deal for good drinks and better music.”

While not quite a hidden gem, a rite of passage for any Chicagoan or any visitor comes courtesy of Shayna from Steel Petal Press who says, “My very, very all time favorite thing to do is take visitors to Millenium Park to check out Cloud Gate because it could quite possibly be my favorite piece of public art of all time.  Then I take my guests for a fancy drink at the top of the Hancock tower at the Signature Room.  It’s on the 96th floor and an absolutely amazing view of the city.”

~To Buy~

For shopping in the windy city, Caitlin of Wanderlustings suggests you “Find your wonderful inner geek over at Chicago Comics off of Belmont and Clark. They have tons of indie comics and fun, local zines to browse through.” She also recommends Clothes Optional or Hollywood Mirror for great vintage shopping in Lakeview, antiquing at Scout, Roost, or Brimfield in Andersonville, and getting your music fix at Dave’s Records over on Clark in Lincoln Park.

When you are finished purchasing crafty goodies at the Fair, Attalie from Shades of Grey also suggests Asrai Garden, Quimby’s, The Boring Store, Eskell and Robin Richman – all within a short walk of Division Street. Jen from Starshaped Press suggests a trip to Hazel in Ravenswood, “a fantastic store with all sorts of goodies for paper/art/flower/gift/clothing/jewelry lovers.” Barbara from Kinaloon enjoys browsing the stacks at The Seminary Co-op Bookstore on the University of Chicago campus, or checking out the Logan Square and Pilsen Farmer’s markets.

If you want to get your craft on before the Fair, Erin representing Gustav Reyes mentions a trip to Bridge Gallery during the Second Friday Art Walk in the Chicago Arts District on Friday September 9, and Rebecca from rar rar press invites vendors and attendees alike to partake in letterpress fun at her studio party with the Moveable Type Tour on Friday the 9th from 6-10pm.

Food, fun, and the best of the Midwest: Chicago, the pleasure is all ours!

A huge thank you to our local vendors for all of their must-dos!

Please comment below if you have any windy city tips to add, and be sure to stay tuned for a special list of Chicago favorites from The Renegade Gang!

We’ll see you on Division Street!
