December 2-8

Because the winter is a bit slower, especially for weekly events, I’m switching up the format a bit so each weekly post begins with Friday and ends on a Thursday. The beginning of this month is full of markets and music.  Though we aren’t doing gifts this year, I still hope to hit up one of my favorites—Renegade Craft Fair—at the Bridgeport Art Center in Chicago and the new J.C. Lauber Urban Market. If you haven’t attended something at J.C. Lauber yet, please do. It’s a great space, and people are bringing in good work there. What fun will you find?
