TIm & I headed to Brooklyn for the Renegade Craft Fair on Sunday and we were greeted with a sea of tents in the old McCarren Pool. There were so many handmade goodies to be found…it was a d.i.y paradise! It was a beautiful day–there was not a cloud in sky, but the sun was relentless. I made a point to stop in everyone’s tent to ensure I didn’t miss anything and that in itself saved my pale skin from a sunburn! The wind gusts did give a brief break from the heat, although, plenty of vendors were cursing the winds as they were struggling to keep their tents & goods from being blown away.

I found myself wanting to buy so many of the things…Here are a few highlights of the Renegade craft fair:

I purchased the adorable Cupcake Peddler print at the Black Apple booth.

I was a big fan of Alyssa Ettinger’s knitware pendants:

I was tempted to buy everything @ the Swallowfield booth. It was just so inviting. I do love the collage I bought a few weeks ago from her. I just recently found a home for it on my wall:

I was smitten with Oktak’s frame bags…especially their change purses. The prints & colors of their fabrics were fabulous!!!
