Gettin’ Crafty at the Renegade Craft Fair

The Renegade Craft Fair is my favorite crafty event in LA!  The fair takes place generally twice a year at the Los Angeles State Historic Park.  If you’re a fan of DIY and indie crafts, you’ll love Renegade.  Vendors from all over the world come to the event to showcase and sell their handmade goods & original artwork.  And when you’re too pooped to shop, there’s plenty of shaded benches to relax on.  Or you can power up by grabbing a snack from one of the many food trucks!  Oh, and did I mention it’s free admission?  My trip to this year’s RCF was inspiring and fun as usual.  And instead of buying everything I loved (which was practically everything), I decided to take pictures instead!  Here are some of my favorite crafts & artwork from the fair today…

If you don’t live in LA, there are Renegade Craft Fairs in Austin, Brooklyn, San Francisco, Chicago, and London.  Check out the RCF website for more details.  Thanks for a craft-tastic time, Renegade!
