The Renegade Craft Fair Chicago Holiday Market found a new home at the stunning Bridgeport Art Center on December 6+7. The event ran from 11am – 6:30pm each day and featured a curated selection of today’s finest independent makers perfect for Holiday gift-giving needs!
Shoppers explored an array of outstanding handmade goods at the Fair, perfect for checking off Holiday gift lists – ranging from holiday inspired stationery and gift wrap, unique and one-of-a-kind jewelry, children’s toys, apparel and shoes, to natural beauty products, repurposed lighting and furniture, housewares and much more. This year’s line up of 200+ talented makers, food and drink, and workshops can be reviewed HERE.
A festive and lively atmosphere greeted attendees at the Bridgeport Art Center with holiday shopping and a mixture of interactive activities and free workshops. DJs from RECKLESS RECORDS and CHIRP RADIO were spinning festive tunes among the booths adorned with lights, evergreen, and festive decor to spark holiday cheer! For those in need of a caffeine jolt, the INTELLIGENTSIA coffee bar was open serving up coffee, cider, and hot chocolate while DIA DE LOS TAMALES, PUFFS OF DOOM, and BLACK DOG GELATO were offering food and sweet treats for shoppers needing a little fuel.
Shoppers inspired by the creative festivities were invited to craft wood ornaments using reclaimed wood with REBUILDING EXCHANGE, or watch a live screen-printing tote bag demo from Toyota and MARTHA STEWART LIVING, the Official Media Sponsor of the 2014 Renegade Craft Fair Holiday Tour. The always free-to-use MAGNOLIA PHOTO BOOTH furnished with props and festive fun was there to capture and commemorate all the fun!
