The DIY Trunk Show, Chicago’s largest one-day indie craft fair now in its 11th year, kicks off holiday shopping with more than 130 local vendors selling handmade, one-of-a-kind items. Unique jewelry, ceramics, paper goods, bags and purses and even pet accessories are among the many items that will be available for sale in addition to free hands-on workshops and “make and take” jewelry projects.

Two of our retail artists, Hobo Thoreau Greetings and The Impossible Winterbourne, will have booths there, as well as other artists we have worked with in the past. 

To showcase and support young artists, the DIY Trunk Show has also partnered this year with local George B. Swift Elementary School—a pre-K to 8th grade school with a fine and performing arts magnet program—in a student mini-design competition. We are 3D printing winning entries and which will be sold alongside other student artwork at the Friends of Swift booth, located upstairs near the food.

All attendees 21+ will receive a FREE beer courtesy of Brooklyn Brewery and Lagunitas Brewing Company while supplies last. Wishbone will be providing southern comfort food and non-alcoholic drinks and CHIRP radio will be spinning on-site.
