Renegade Craft Fair Recap

Good Monday Morning!

I had such a full weekend and I can’t wait to share all the fun things we did for Megan and Phil’s wedding.  Until then, here’s a little recap from the Renegade Handmade Craft Fair last weekend.

There were over 200 vendors at the California Marketplace in LA and it was HOT.  It was set up like a chic swap meet, which totally got my deal hunting mind pumping.  Jonna found one of her favorite illustrator’s fabric in a purse by Karlee Fuchs and was uber stoked.

I about died over all the fascinators and feather headbands.

Yes, that is a tepee.

This store was amazing!  Everything made from felt including the belts below.  Don’t you love the textures?!

Here are a few of the vendor’s booths we stopped by:

This was so rad.  This guy takes old books and removed the binding to put in blank pages for a journal.  He leaves a few of the chapters in there and then spiral binds them.  So awesome!

Excuse me, 3 Fish Studios, you amaze me.  These are prints all done with linoleum stamps… just amazing.

And here they are… craved by hand and made from linoleum!

Well, hello little Nome.

We went home with quite a few goodies.  I’d say Alena got the most stuff, but Jonna for sure was the best bargain shopper.

Oh and we can’t forget to stop for Coffee Bean on the way home.

I’d say it was a success.
