chicago & renegade bound

as you're reading this, bekuh and i are on the road towards chicago. yay! i'm so excited to spend this weekend shopping with two of my favorite girls (becca lives in chicago, so we get to stay with her, too), and taking in all of the handmade at renegade.

i thought a small round-up of some vendors i'm excited about would be appropriate. :)

source
alternate histories seems like a store right up austin's alley, and since this trip is partially dedicated to christmas shopping.. i'm excited to check out their booth.

source
surprisingly enough, tea towels are something that we're SERIOUSLY lacking at our house. why not stock up on some pretty ones? bespoke uprising has some promising prints on their etsy.

source
i knew i was going to love boyfren girlfren solely based on the name of the shop. i'm excited to see what goodies they have at their booth.

source
i just really want a jackalope pillow. that shouldn't be a surprise.

source
i think i'm maybe becoming a notebook hoarder. but i'm OBSESSED with these from kelso doesn't dance.

source
i don't think i'll be able to afford them, but i can't wait to see garth borovicka's bookends and other wooden sculptures. the pizza?! omg.

source
i've written about homako here before, so i'm extra excited to finally get my hands on something!

source
i basically love everything in iamhome's shop, but i think i'd get more use out of these swimmer magnets than a trophy. but they're so. cute.

source
i've been a fan of little pancakes on etsy for a looong time, but i don't think i've ever bought anything. i can't wait to check out her work in person.

source
i would kill for one of mimi kirchner's tattooed dolls, but since i definitely cannot afford one, i'm sooo excited to just look at them! so. excited.

source
i actually wish that i could buy this valentine for becca, but since she'll be right there with me, it wouldn't be as awesome. i'm excited to see what else owly shadow puppets stocks their booth with.

source
obviously i'm excited for tumbleweeds! beca posted a picture of a polka dot pair on her instagram, and i instantly started calculating how much money i was bringing. ;)

source
i love everything on uncommon's etsy.

source
i'm obviously super excited about all of the jewelry at renegade. water and salt's stuff is gorgeous.

other things i'm going to be on the hunt for: a midwest is best tshirt (because i think it'd be hilarious to own one, idek), a ring for kendall, maybe matching tshirts for avery and i, handmade frames for christmas gifts, and A TON of presents for austin for letting me take this super selfish trip. :)

see you guys next week! <3
