Thank you, Chicago!

We had a great time at the Renegade Fair in Chicago… so much fun, actually, that I didn’t take too many photos (again!  I’m so bad at this).  It was great to join forces with Cardamom Collective for a fantastic textile-loving booth!

Here are some of the only shots I have from the fantastic weekend:


A very kind gentleman welcomed Kelly and me into the neighborhood with these delicious coffees!


Just some of the Kakaw goodies!  It was fun to see the small things sell quickly – makes sense at fairs.  Luggage tags, passport covers, pouches and coasters all top favorites.


Scarves galore!  Can you tell which ones are Kakaw and which ones are Cardamom?


Sweet holiday kits, collaboration with Cardamom Collective.  Stay tuned- they will be up for sale on their site soon!


It was lovely to see people come and visit.  Many admirers of Guatemala, textile lovers of course, and new friends referred to us by old friends.  And fun to come across people who actually knew us – I’m always surprised and curious as to how… a few through social media, a few through common friends, and even a woman who had heard me speak at an event in Guatemala a couple of years ago.  The world is so small!

Thank you, everyone, for all your support! I had a great time, and I hope to be back at Renegade Chicago next year as well.  Now I’m planing a trip to New York for November…. 🙂
