Peddalers is a joint venture of Ectypebikes, a small garage operation focusing on the rebuilding and reconditioning of used & vintage bicycles, and Blackbird, a handmade jewelry, accessories, and vintage clothing shop. Blackbird has joined us in the past and always bring a wonderful assortment handmade jewelry and paper goods from locally-sourced natural and repurposed materials. We’re excited to have these two Peddalers at the fest!
Tomas and Rachel are two makers living in Urbana with their three cats. Tomas has been rebuilding bicycles since 2011 in the Chicagoland area. Rachel makes jewelry while watching trashy reality TV in her living room.
