Renegade Craft Fair

I love craft fairs. I love making things and I love supporting others who make amazing things so when my friend told me about Renegade Craft Fair, I had to check it out.


It was huge and amazing! I had such a blast looking at all the rad handmade items. There was so much I wanted to get but I had to be a good girl. I shall for sure remember for this year to do my Christmas shopping there. I did get three things, some yummy chocolate toffee, a cupcake beret from Twinkie Chan, and a typed poem.

 

I found out they have two shows every year, in the summer and the fall/winter. They have shows in other cities as well. If you love buying homemade and supporting creators/artists, please see if they have a show in your city.

 




Do you have local craft fairs? What cool things have you bought? Do you sell at these craft fairs?

  1. How fun! We have a bi-annual craft fair that's associated with a music festival here. The spring edition should be happening soon, thanks for the reminder!

  2. There's always a craft fair going on in Metro Detroit, it's almost a year-long blitz but I like going during the spring and summer and seeing all of the cool crafts. We also have something called the Rust Belt Market which is a "flea market" type of place just for crafters in Detroit.

  3. We have 2- one is an indie market that coincides with "first friday" and then a bi-annual market called Hand To Hand. I used to be apart of the indie market, but my area seems to be really unresponsive to events as such. (Or they come out, but don't buy anything from anyone.) But I've always wanted to check out Renegade! Maybe sometime in the future :\

    Also, I think I know the typewriter poem lady! One of my acquaintances has a sister that does that and she set up in our store one afternoon and sold poems for $1. I can't remember her name though.

  5. That T-Rex is amazing!
    Do street fairs count? I would like to go to another Craft Fair though. It's been a while.
