Brooklyn Renegade Craft Fair

For those that didn't make it, I thought I'd share a few snaps of the action at this years Brooklyn Renegade Craft Fair. Despite this being its 6th year, it was my first visit.


Its definitely a fun event I'd recommend to anyone who wants to see some hip unusual items. Seeing the creative ways the vendors display their wares was the hightlight for me...such great ideas that can be used in other ways. Most of the items for sale fall distinctly into the cool/clever/ironic gift category - not having a gift to shop for at this particular minute, I didn't actually purchase a thing but it was worth the trip anyway.

great use for an old window frame from Molly Gee

I loved the chalkboard bunting by Paper Satchel;
Colleen Heineman's chair necklaces had me at hello

Minature Rhino's sign would be easy to DIY and be great for parties;
I was inexplicably drawn to these dolls by Mimi Kirchner

These Hero shirts were a standout in a sea of tees;
Amazed by NYC scenes set in tile by the talented DeLong Ceramics.

I left empty handed by this little guy was completely unfazed by the crowds and left with a handful of something good.

If you are in town for it next year, its worth a stop. And I'm happy to have been 'introduced' to some really talented sellers that I can shop online from when Im on the hunt for something different.
