Annie Mohaupt majored in architecture but found the office setting was not for her. When a friend asked her to share a table at the Renegade Craft Fair, she had a reason to execute that shoe idea she had been kicking around for a while. The shoes were hot sellers and the rest is history. Now, Annie, 31, of Chicago makes shoes full-time. To date she has turned out more than 1,000 pairs of cute and comfortable handmade shoes. (These shoes are so great — I bought a pair myself).
