Renegade Craft Fair - a few finds by Katie

For anyone in a creative slump, or who still had some Christmas shopping to do, the Renegade Craft fair came just in time!  We had so much fun just looking at all the creativity in the room, and made sure we looked at each booth just to see what crafty things people had come up with...and we were not the only ones.  Just look at this crowd!

It was so hard to choose just a few booths to post about, so you will probably see more from me in the coming weeks.

One of the first booths we came to was Mystic Mobiles.  She had a beautiful display of the mobiles she makes from paper, which were beautiful.  Just look at one of her items for sale on Etsy:

Since her products are made from paper, you get a beautiful gift idea for little to no shipping costs, which can also hang just about anywhere indoors (without special hooks).

I managed to find gifts for 6 friends at Flock Home.  I was tempted by this elephant:

But ended up taking home onsies with the cutest giraffe, mouse and ladybug designs.  You can find her items on Etsy as well by clicking here.

As far as jewlery goes, I love anything that is salvaged, so was drawn to Noble Town Vintage like a magnet.  I found some great re-claimed chain earrings, and can't wait to see what else she has available online.  Check out her Etsy store here.

Finally, one of my last purchases (when I was completely out of cash, but luckily had my back up check book), were these great square bottom totes/bags from Finch with the cutest hand painted designs on them.  I have been on the hunt for totes that stand up on their own, and these were perfect for my needs.

Finch also sells the softest baby items with great designs.  You can find more great items at their Etsy store by clicking here for home items or here for baby items.

I can't wait to see what booths Lana and Lauren highlight.  Stay tuned!
