My Etsy Renegade Craft Fair Loot

As you know, I went to the Etsy Renegade Craft Fair over the weekend and I wanted to share some of my purchases with you. Love supporting local artists and this year I made bank. Here is a list of the vendors I shopped with. Unfortunately, I can’t find all of their names so if you’re the artist who made some of these pieces, please contact me! I love shopping in the discount bin, so several of these pieces were $5 or $10.

Map prints by Peaceful Traveler

I have no clue where I’m going to put these prints, but I’m thrilled with my purchases! Such great finds. Did you have similar luck at the fair? Tell me what you bought!

Weekend Recap

Did you go to the Etsy Renegade Craft Fair?! I did, and knocked a ton of gift’s off my to-buy Christmas list. Unfortunately, my camera is still out of commission, so you’ll have to settle for cell phone pics for the next couple weeks of posts. Check out the website HERE for a recap from the event sponsors.

I wanted to highlight a few of my favorite vendors. You see, I go to this event twice a year and I can always count on certain vendors to be back with new merchandise and also some new booths I’ve never seen before. Graze organic is one of these new (or at least new-to-me) booths. They make 100% organic reusable sandwich + snack bags. “Disposable” plastic ziplock bags are convenient but TERRIBLE for the environment. Everyday people use these bags to pack their lunches and then they toss them out at the end of the day. Graze uses organic fabrics to create snack and sandwich sized bags that you can reuse and wash with your clothes in the washing machine. It’s such a great concept. The vendor had one of her first prototypes to show how long they last. It was a tad faded, but considering she’s washed it tons of times, it was in great condition. Check out their website HERE, order them for your family for Christmas and help the environment.

Of course my favorite tee shirt vendor, Fuzzy Ink, was there with a few new designs. And one of my favorite jewelry stands, Love Nail Tree. Another great Renegade fair down.

From the craft fair I went to a sushi-making party at a coworkers place along the Venice Canals. What a beautiful night there, and they’ve put Christmas lights out on all the bridges. I highly recommend a twilight walk along the canals.

After Venice I headed to Largo for Paul Scheer’s Sexy Christmas Show, but that event deserves it’s own post 🙂
