Handmade Christmas!

I have pledged to buy everyone on my Christmas list this year at least one item made by a local artist. Here is my plan of attack...or at least the start.

Here are some Christmas-y ( I think I will be using that "word" a lot in the next few weeks...Christmas-y, I hope you don't mind.) picks that are fun & affordable. Here is our Illinois state bird in a print by Mincing Mockingbird.

A kitschy Christmas card by Little Korboose.

Winter onsie, also by Little Korboose.

Candy canes & cupcakes by
Cake Spy.

With over 150 artists participating- there is something for everyone! The fair is also offering free trolley rides to Pulaski Pavilion from certain stores on Division (Nina Knit, Renegade Handmade & the Little Bar) which I highly recommend using since the parking around the pavilion is nil. Also this weekend on a much larger scale is the One of a Kind Show at the Merchandise Mart (over 400 artists!) Why oh why did they schedule these two shows on the same weekend? Somebody is definitely going on my naughty list.
