Despite the hot sunshine and humidity, I had a fabulous time at the Renegade Craft Fair this weekend. I have a lot of photos to share, so shall we get right to it?
These are prototypes of Tara’s new stamps at Ink + Wit. I snatched up a set with the Eiffel Tower and the garland stamp (see the whole Paris set here). In hindsight, I can’t understand why I didn’t buy more of the stamps – they are terrific.
I got a chance to chat briefly with Tara Hogan of Ink + Wit and Jennifer Fisher of jfish designs. They were both so lovely and kind; it was a definite highlight of my day.
Another highlight of the day was talking to Jane Buck of Foxy + Winston, who was also as lovely as can be. Oh to live near her store in Red Hook!
These pictures really don’t do justice to the wide range of items, nor the vibrant colors of Foxy + Winston.
Another favorite of mine, as I’ve mentioned many times, is Miniature Rhino. I was so happy to meet Jessica in person. She helped Rosa type out a little note to her friend, which was very kind of her. Her booth was filled with really unique treasures. I thought her display was one of the best.
(Rosa was distracted by a marching band walking through the fair at that moment)
I was also really impressed by the range and creativity of The Small Object‘s booth, many of which are limited edition items. The descriptions she uses on the packages of her items are charming and delightful. I think Sarah is so very talented.
I remember loving the packaging last year of Enormous Champion‘s “Kingdom Animalia” wooden animals. It’s absolutely gorgeous. I didn’t buy one then, but this year, I bought one for Elena, which she picked out:

They had lots of beautiful cards too.
These last two booths (of Part 1 of this Round Up) were so sweet and pretty. First, I adored Dwell Deep‘s handpainted jars/vases:
I had to have the one on the left, and I am so happy I bought it. It was one of my favorite purchases. I hope she puts some in her shop, because I would love to have more.
And then I lingered over Allison Cole‘s shop for quite awhile:
A sweet happy cloud pillow
I loved these colorful zippered pouches
And I just loved this print – what a sweet print to put on a little girl’s bedroom wall:
I’ve divided my Round Up into five parts (yikes!). I’m sharing parts 1 – 3 today, and parts 4 & 5 tomorrow. So, stay tuned to hear from me two more times today!
