Yesterday was a gay time had by all at the Renegade Craft Fair! The weather cooperated beautifully and I had quite a time strolling around all of the booths. What a huge collection of talent, so much so that it was kind of a little too much for me to handle all at once. I also think that the vendors who were placed at either end of Division street had an unfair advantage; other spectators, like myself, must have spent more time perusing those booths, as once you get towards the middle it becomes just a blur of awesomeness.
Below are some of my favorite shots of my favorite items and booths at the fair. (Scroll to the bottom to find links to other vendors whose work I loved but whose photos turned out less-than-stellar.)
Incredible Papier-mâché ceramics by Up in the Air Somewhere — I adore the gold leafing and the color palette!
These bike necklaces are the business! By Maureen Duffy.
A rather unflattering shot (my bad) of the marvelous Jay Ryan. Can you believe he was selling a good number of his prints for $5 and $10? Of course I swooped myself one!
Delightful letterpress and packaging designs by Bison Bookbinding and Letterpress!
Folk Art by Old Scratch.
This girl has like a million sales on Etsy. And rightly so. Cloth necklaces by Cookoorikoo.
All I can say is, Hooray for the person who came up with that idea! Oh right, it was the folks at Pixel Party.
Adorably cheeky prints by Craft Svcs.
Oh my, what’s this? Well its a uterus pin cushion of course! By The Prick Cushion.
I believe I’ve saved some very special pieces for last. Gorgeous ceramic pieces by Raquel Masri.
The following are links to other artists whose work I fancied:

So, did you have a good experience at Renegade?
UPDATE! Emily Kircher followed up with a picture of one of her sweet rugs!
