Chicagoans are no strangers to extreme weather, and an incredible number of dedicated supporters of indie craft braved the downpour in their full rainy day regalia. There was an incredible showing of talent at the fair, and I'm sure those tough Chicagoans were not disappointed. Here are some of my favorites from this year's fair.
Gorgeous and bright screen printed t shirts, $40 from Supermaggie
Sweet vintage doily lampshades from Nice
Fabulous burlesque-inspired feathery headbands, $70 from Love, Lulu Mae
Elaborately screen printed scarves from Michelle Brusegaard
A variety of magical prints of boats and sea monsters, $25-$45 from Tugboat Printshop
A big thanks is due to all of the dedicated shoppers who made it out this weekend despite calamitous weather. It was inspiring and encouraging to meet all of the folks who came out and like my work. Remember: Even if you didn't make it out to the fair last weekend, you can always find great handmade goods any time from the New Orleans Craft Mafia and prix-prix in their online shops!
