Renegade Holiday Market Highlights!

This weekend I was lucky enough to make it to the Renegade Holiday Market in Chicago. The biannual Renegade Craft Fairs are a great place to see what is trending in the handmade community. As always there were some very interesting and innovative artists!

Bird of Virtue  is a San Francisco based design studio run by Linnea Oliver. These intricate and beautiful deigns are created by layering laser cut wood. She adds a touch of hand painted color to give them a striking and dynamic look. Her work is available for purchase here

How cool are these cactus platers by The Plaid Pigeon!? I think these are the perfect gift for anyone young at heart and can water a plant once every two months. These guys and there friends are available for purchase here.

Wood Thumb presented ties and bow ties crafted from reclaimed redwoods from Northern California. I also love the styling of there laser cut ornaments! These guys have made it clear that wearing wood is going to be a huge trend! There products are available here!


Uncommon Handmade offers darling clocks and decor for your home. The intricate yet simple laser cut designs maximize the beauty in natural and hand painted wood. They offer a lot of other great stuff on their Etsy!

I hope you found these artist inspired you to create your own work! has the material and machines you need to start your own artistic venture!
