How much do you Chicagoans love those flag coffee cups? They will definitely find their way to my kitchen this week when I shop ’til I drop at the DIY Trunk Show in Wicker Park. Presented by the Chicago Craft Mafia and in its seventh year, the show features over 100 artisans pushing their handmade wears. Support crafters, get ideas for your own artwork and pick up some holiday gifts all in one place.
“This year about 40% of our vendors are new to selling,” says Rebeca Mojica of Blue Buddha Boutique, a Chicago Craft Mafia member who has been in the show four years. “We’re excited for people to see what the next generation of crafters are doing. After all, they’re the ones who will help change this world, one stitch at a time.”
A few of my favorites from the list of partipants below.
