So go darn it!! RCF is in McCarren Park (but not in the pool this year) in lovely Brooklyn, NY.
Sadly, I won’t be attending or vending this year due to other travel plans in June. And I’m so bummed because this year’s Renegade Craft Fair is the biggest and best looking offering of amazing handmade crafts, art to date. The offering of incredible work from the DIY and Handmade culture is just fantastic, and the Renegade Craft Fairs are the premiere shows loaded with international talent.
Seriously. I feel like a ghost and watching all of my crafty, arty friends are hanging out together. BooooOOOOoooo :rattleschanins:
So, since I can’t go, you go for me! Say hello to my friends below and spread the word. See you next year Brooklyn!
Some of my favorite artists and crafters whom you should check out & totally say HI! to for me:
Berkely Illustration – amazing animal and other illustrations.
Bossa Nova Baby – super fun hand screenprinted skirts, sewn embellishment and retro-cool accessories. (And one of the funniest people I know.)
Giant Dwarf – beautiful embellishments for your head, hair and heart.
Hero Design Studio – these guys are my stone cold BFFs. Amazing every which way, including loose.
Isle of Printing – quite possibly the best that there is out there. Ever.
