renegade chicago :: wishing to be there

This time last year, we were on our way to Jonathan’s hometown, Chicago. Our trip coincided with Renegade Handmade’s holiday sale at the Pulaski Park Fieldhouse – so of course, we took advantage of the coincidence and went to check it out. This year, the sale is December 5 & 6 – alas, we won’t be there, but if you are fortunate enough to live in the windy city go check it out (we will live vicariously through you)! Thankfully, each artist I’ve mentioned here also sells online (phew) so I’ve also included links to each artist’s etsy shop if, like us, you won’t be attending.


If we were there, we’d definitely be picking up a few of the following items from some of our favorite artists…


Jonathan and I are huge fans of the witty cards from Mincing Mockingbird, but I’m also smitten with the prints of these expressive little birds. I’d love to pick up these two little guys. (etsy shop)



Pearl and Marmalade is one of my favorite letterpress studios – their illustrations are gorgeous! I’ve recently depleted my supply of blank cards and I’d love to pick up some of these lovelies. (etsy shop)



1Canoe2 has some beautiful letterpress prints available (love the home sweet home print) but I’m especially smitten with the letterpress recipe card box. The recipe cards and tabs feature hand lettering and original illustrations; even the darling wooden box is handmade! (etsy shop)

Sigh. Wish we could see these lovelies (and so much more!) in person. If only Renegade would come to Seattle (or even Portland!). Until then, we will continue to lust after our favorite pieces online. Stay tuned early next week for some of Jonathan’s Renegade picks!
