The Renegade Craft fair is always pretty spectacular. I feel like some craft fairs run the risk of being overly kitschy, or not having much variety. I still attend many of these sub-par craft fairs because life is short and people keep telling me that we humans are supposed to take risks, but what I like most about the Renegade Craft fair is that it has yet to let me down. Their review process seems to weed out all the duds, leaving me with hundreds of carefully selected booths to awkwardly admire, and supplying me with an excess of ideas and inspirations for future projects.
Per usual I had to rush through the maze of booths because there were far too many to explore, and I’m always running late, but in my mad dash of discovery I happened upon some truly lovely things. I noticed that the gold-triangle-jewelry trend is still in full swing. I really enjoyed this booth setup from Julie Nolan Jewelry:
Another great triangle slinging shoppe was Son of a Sailor Jewelry, I adore these triangle color-block pendants that they had for sale:
As you can see, Natural and finished wood of all types was popping up in a variety of different settings. My favorite were these screenprinted wooden panels with hooks from Tiny Sparks Design:
One of my favorite booths belonged to The Victory Garden where they were selling unique embroidery hoops filled with crocheted yarn. These would add a pop of color and be an excellent addition to any crafters home:
Lastly, while I didn’t get a chance to look very closely at her wares, Dorklandia had this really delightful mobile display. I had read that Renegade was accepting applications for rolling vendors, and it was pretty sweet to see how this idea came to fruition with miss Dorklandia:
All in all I once again got floored by the sheer awesomeness of the RCF. Whether it is the normal RCF or it’s charming holiday counterpart, I highly recommend you check it out next time it comes to your town.
