Renegade Craft Fair Chicago – wrap up

Steel Petal Press at the Renegade Craft Fair, Chicago 2011 Renegade Craft Fair Chicago was super fun and successful!  The weather was fabulous and sunny (no rain, and maybe even a smidge on the hot side), I had two wonderful helpers join me one for each day and I had a great time sharing a booth with Michelle of Cussing Cozies (just like the last holiday fair in Chicago)

It was wonderful to meet so many people who recognized my work from my etsy shop or from other shops around Chicago (Wolfbait and B-Girls, Shop Komoda, Sacred Art.. etc)  A few others recognized me from my feature story earlier that week on the Etsy Blog in the series “Quit Your Day Job.”  It was kinda fun to feel like a minor celebrity for a few days.

Aside from good weather, good friends, and meeting new folks, sales went really well!  Best craft fair to date.  🙂

And now it’s time for me to buckle down, catch up on all my custom orders (.. and everything else I put off while preparing for the fair) and start cracking on Holiday Card designs and a 2012 Calendar.

Also, I will post more pictures of all my new inventory once I have a chance to document everything. Hopefully sometime next week!
