All the Things We Loved at Renegade Chicago

Posted by Rachel Wiandt on

Renegade Chicago was crazy busy but I managed to grab a few minutes to find some of my favorite artisans and check out their amazing products.

Monorail Studio

Love these quirky shirts and prints. My favorite is their Beef & Beer shirt, found here.

Earth Cadets

Many years ago, I took a screenprinting class from Krissy and I've loved her products ever since. If you need the perfect gift for a baby or housewarming party, head over to her site and be ready to impress. Her hand-printed tea towels are the perfect hostess gift.

Argaman + Defiance

Obsessed with her gorgeous silk scarves that are dyed with natural plants, herbs and botanicals. Who knew red onion skins could produce such beautiful colors? A silk infinity scarf is the perfect accessory for fall.

Tree Hopper Toys

Beautiful wooden toys for the young and young at heart and they are all made in Chicagoland. At only $8, this wooden yo-yo is an ideal stress reliever for adults.

Aroh Made

Wooden plaques that are also magnets and hold your keys? Sign me up! These gorgeous American Cherry plagues are a fun and functional piece of art. Make some Illi-noise (or whatever your favorite state may be).


Renegade has no shortage of jewelry designers but Avrocomy blew me away with her detailed geometric pieces. Inspired by the sun, this ring is available in opal or turquoise. Definitely one for my wish list!  

Ms. Matilda Designs

Nothing brightens your day like receiving a beautifully designed greeting card. Ms Matilda Designs has a great selection of cards for all occasions and can even customize a wooden stamp for you to use over and over again. I stocked up on a few of these funny thank you cards.  

Poppy and Fern

These beautiful embroidered necklaces are tiny works of art. Mr. Octopus caught my eye with the vintage styling and perfect, tiny stitches.
