One of my favorite activities ever is going to craft shows. I can’t get enough of all the handmade goodness! Chicago has so many good ones–some of my favorites are:
I attended the Show of Hands show once again this year in Ravenswood, and found the most amazing stuff! It’s really incredible what these artists create, and I love supporting their businesses–even if it means paying a little more. There are some things you just can’t get on Amazon.
I made a guide for some handmade items I’ve found that would make great gifts! Keep scrolling for a Chicago specific guide, too.
Enjoy! And let me know if you have any questions or need further gift ideas. I’m full of them!
