Renegade Chicago

Last weekend was Renegade Craft Festival here in Chicago. It was a hot, busy weekend, and there was lots of new stuff at the show.

One booth I thought stood out was For Strange Women. The artist and perfumer has created soft, warm photography for her line that you can see best at her Etsy shop.

The hard perfumes are sold in Victorianesque engraved lockets with letterpress labeled boxes. There is a fairytale aesthetic throughout. It conjures up small houses in the deep woods, but instead of finding cackling, old hags, inside you will find modern, goth witches who smell nice. I loved it.
