In 2003, the Renegade Craft Fair made its debut in Chicago's Wicker Park hoping to provide indie do-it-yourself-ers a place outside the web -- and away from the country crafts set.

The small (and sometimes soggy) event in Wicker Park became bigger each year, and now Renegade crafters have events all over the country. The Chicago fair still draws thousands of artists from around the globe and now fills Division Street with crafts, screen prints, food and music each year.

This weekend, the weather behaved (most of the time) and the festival was once again a success. Crafters Wayside Violet and abbey*christine shared some of their photos from the weekend with HuffPost Chicago.
