Imagine my surprise when a friend sent me this link via Facebook Wednesday. “Wow!” Was all I could say! It’s always fun when a feature like this pops up out of nowhere!
A lovely curated list of snazzy outfits and accessories, the “Dressing Up for a Night Out” couldn’t come at a better time. With people choosing and picking outfits for Christmas, holiday parties and New Year’s Eve, the extra press is much appreciated.

A month or so ago I was thinking to myself, “Hmmmm – the holidays are at hand and I want to make a fun festive dress that’s practical and affordable.” Like all of you, I knew my budget would be stretched with holiday shopping, tree dressing and other expenses. So my goal was to create a simple design that would result in a lower price tag and the “Season’s Greetings” dress is just that!
Making it’s debut at the Renegade Holiday Craft Fair – this fun and flattering frock is made using vintage linens and pre-loved women’s shirts and carries a reasonable price tag of only $36. The long-sleeved tops keep the wearer nice and toasty without compromising on style. Plus – the elastic high waist gives each dress a fancy shmancy finish that creates a beautiful bell-like shape when worn. I only have a handful of these cute pieces left, ranging from green and black to gold and grey. Great for wearing to your upcoming holiday parties, check out the remaining pieces here.
As promised – here’s a peek at the abundant and delightful chaos that was the 2012 Renegade Holiday Craft Fair in Chicago!
The crowds were bigger than ever this season, which made for a busy day! Caitlin and I were on our toes the entire weekend, greeting shoppers, answering questions and selling lots!
It was a fruitful endeavor that always leaves me feeling inspired and invigorated. I loved seeing many repeat clients come shopping through – as well as the friendly faces of fellow vendors. Whether selling, shopping or mingling, I had an absolute blast! Am I exhausted after the fact? You bet! But every ounce of energy poured into preparing and executing this fair was well worth it!!!
It’s that time again – time to start making my shopping list for the annual holiday edition of the Renegade Craft Fair!
I’m not just shopping the event, I will also be selling my wares! Once more I am collaborating with Caitlin Peters of Wanderlustings to create an invitingly boutique-like booth that will be filled to the brim with clothing, jewelry and festive accessories.
Stop by to visit and you’ll find my popular Sir Cycle men’s hoodies, the forever adorable Cosby skirts, my Peek A Boo Chevron cardigans and more! Plus – wear a Pierogi Picnic design to the event and you’ll receive a 30% discount on your purchase with me that day!!!
Be sure to swing by the event this weekend in Wicker Park to stock up on all your gift needs!
What’s black, cyber and grey all over? My annual Black Friday/Cyber Monday Sale spectacular! Starting on Friday, November 23rd until Monday, November 26th you can save loads off all your favorites!

The holidays are just around the corner and I don’t want the busyness of the spirited season to distract me from business or pleasure this year. So what’s the best way to keep myself focused? Why – making a list of course!
Sitting down and ‘planning’ your holiday approach for your indie biz is intimidating, daunting, and for some, down-right unpleasant. But without a plan you can only go so far. To trick yourself into concocting a strategy, sit down and first answer these questions. Read the rest of this entry »
Big news hit my inbox Monday – Pierogi Picnic has been accepted to the 2012 rendition of Renegade’s Holiday Market! It will be my second time participating in the December show and am so excited for the opportunity!
I am also really looking forward to partnering with my good friend and creative cohort Caitlin Peters of Wanderlustings. Her new jewelry collection has me absolutely smitten. Between her beautiful and intricate trinkets and my brightly colored fabric baubles we’re going to knock the socks off this year’s fair goers!
So for the next month and a half expect lots of sneak peeks and previews of what’s to come at this year’s event! I’ll also be picking your brains closer to the date about booth setups and merchandise via the Pierogi Picnic Facebook. So be sure to stay tuned!
