Design Harvest is a brand-spanking new festival here in Chicago, taking place October 2 & 3. This fest will feature furniture and home accessory makers, vintage and antique collectors, and retailers of the home design industry all from Chicago. Beer, wine, music all on Grand Avenue, between Damen & Wood. Best part: free admission
Vintage-Twisted furniture will be featured in the Renegade Handmade tent! Yes, I’ll be visiting the festival, but my furniture will be there for the duration, in the care of the capable & fabulous Renegade Handmade team. (Thanks, Danny!)
If you’re heading down, let me know & maybe we can meet up. Good chance I’ll be hanging around the amazing Kim Chapman at the Urban Environments environment.

I had such a good time at the Renegade Craft Show this past weekend and met so many great people. Beer, dancing, music, sunshiney days- perfect! Hope you all had fun.
The 2 most popular pieces at the show were this much coveted sugar skull nightstand:
and this sweet little pink & green paisley bookshelf- two items that couldn’t be more different.
Thanks to Albert & Jim, the amazing guys of The Found, in the booth next to me. Not only were they so supportive to the newbie next door, but they also carry unique cards, coasters, buttons, magnets & lots more that I couldn’t live without. I’m still laughing at this card & hope to one day receive it from one of my beloved, evil friends…

Hey, all- I got accepted into the Renegade Craft Fair, right here in Chicago. So excited- it was a juried kind of entrance and only 1/3 of the applicants got in. I haven’t seen furniture there in the past, but it’s a very cool, handmade, crazy kind of art/craft show and sure to be lots of fun!
September 11 & 12, 11am-7pm, Wicker Park on Division
Come on down & visit me –
