This week is the Renegade Chicago craft fair and, though I won't be attending this one, I'm considering applying for the December show. The $250 application fee would be the biggest fee I've ever paid for a fair so I'm hesitant. Additionally, there would be the 5 hour trip there, figuring out lodging, possibly missing work. Has anyone attended this specific show? Think it's worth it?
I'm leaning towards doing it. I've only been to Chicago once - very briefly - and Matt has never been so we could make a mini trip out of it. I bet Chicago during the holidays is delightful. The one thing that would royally screw this up would be an ill-timed snowstorm.
If you've been to the show, let me know. I've never done a show of this size and it could be pretty fun. I - and you - have until October 9 to decide if I want to apply.
