This weekend the three of us over at Senioritis braved the heat and headed out to the 6th Annual Renegade Craft Fair in Brooklyn. McCarren Park in Williamsburg was chock full of etsy artists as well as other crafters from all over the country. We came across some fantastically creative designers, screen printers, clothiers, photographers, and jewelers, and even made a few purchases. Check out the super crazy neon t-shirt I scored from the great folks over at SEIBEI.
One of the neatest things about this fair, unlike most craft fairs I've attended, was the D-I-Y vibe. Jill made her own canvas tote, using some paint and these great nature-themed stencils. I (sticking with the neon theme) opted for the pre-made Etsy tote pictured below, featuring a shout out to etsy's newest office - in Germany!
The Fair provided a terrific way to check out what some of the most innovative artists across the country are creating this summer. If you missed it this time around, be sure to check out the Fair's website here to see when you can catch it next. And for those non-New Yorkers out there, the Fair also hits Austin, Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Chicago, so go try to sell your wares, make some friends, and have a blast with your fellow crafters!
