Hello, all! We attended the Renegade Craft Fair held on September 19th and 20th in the lovely Wicker Park neighborhood in Chicago. The Renegade Craft Fair is one of the greatest gathering of crafters one can expect to find with a wide range of arts and trades available to peruse. It also happened to be one of the finest weekends we’ve had — blue skies and cool breezes for everyone!
Since Renegade is such an amazing gathering, we’ve decided to put together a list of the top 6 craft booths from the fair. It’s an unofficial list, but it’s a good one nonetheless! Trust us, we saw A LOT of craft booths. It almost seemed like one weekend wasn’t enough to see it all. Not only did these craft fair booths have a horde of charming crafty creations, but they also had such beautiful craft booth designs to boot.
Best Craft Booths: Renegade Craft Fair 2015
1) Arthur’s Plaid Pants – This booth definitely had to make the cut. Why? Not only was the space set up perfectly to display the fun art prints created by Jen Husted-Goss, but she also let me in on a fun fact: the pretty bunting decorating her craft booth was formerly used in her wedding. You can’t get any more personal and unique than that!
2) Wind & Willow Home – Bright and colorful, this booth was a ray of sunshine. It was well-laid out with the wall shelving complementing and showing off the gorgeous designs.
3) Wild Air & Co. – This booth’s wow-factor is the result of layers and layers of details. The layers were comprised of jewelry, planters, fairy lights, prints, props, terrariums, and even a gorgeous handmade tapestry. The marble backdrop adds the final layer to this jewelry display simply sending it over-the-top!
4) Lina Lulu Paperie – First off, we find it irresistible when two beautiful tablecloths are used for a layered-effect on any table set-up. The emphasis on green in this booth was simply stunning. The dark crates really made the colors pop!
5) Function by Jennifer Creighton – Pardon the pun, but this craft booth design was “function” at its best. We were impressed with the simple layering of product, varied display heights, pop of fresh flowers, and the price tags. The tags were clay slabs with prices written in chalk– so understated, yet nothing could symbolize the work so perfectly and still be so functional!
6) Lily Dawson Designs – We’ve never seen so many different ways to display jewelry in a single spot! This booth was trend-setting, fun, and easy-to-shop.
