support your local Traveling Rhinos…

Probably the last thing I expected to see in my very own neighborhood was a virtual sea of crafting! Now, in years before, when I lived on Schiller St. next to Wicker Park, it was always a very pleasant afternoon to saunter over to the green by the fountain and visit the Fair. There I met Shannon and Jenny and Vera and Corinne, all with their beautiful and expert handwork.

This year the Renegade Craft Fair has mushroomed into a Spectacle~! [And this I say with all positive appreciation!] Just like in days of yore when there was a seasonal Market Day and all the tradesman, shepards, alesman, jesters, buttermakers, and weavers came to town, here was a festival, a party, a concert, a feast!

As far as the eye could see, from Hermitage (almost at Ashland Ave.) to Damen, were set out booths, stages, food stalls, and craft corals, one-half mile’s worth of Craftiness! I was abashed that I only had less than an hour to roam, my time being wrangled elsewhere. But in that hour, I strolled and found this.


A good sized crowd was outside this booth
