I am so excited to A. launch my new and improved blog & B. post my first post in quite some time! Life has been a little wild lately but I have a lot of new content, adventure posts and good stuff in the works :)
Over the weekend I attended what feels like my 100th Renegade Craft Fair in NYC. I love them so much and I always make the trip to both summer and winter markets every year. I love discovering new vendors as well as visiting the regulars and seeing all of the fresh new creations in their shops. I always leave feeling inspired and overwhelming happy.
This year it was held at the Metropolitan Pavilion in NYC. It’s a wonderful open area, which makes it a great space for lots of vendor tables and easy accessibility when it starts getting crowded.
Love this bag! You were able to stand in line and screen print your very own for free!
In Fun Handmade’s cute ceramic pieces!
I simply LOVED Noepe Design’s hand illustrated textiles and hand printed fabrics. Their designs are so beautiful. My favorite was the little details in the hand print above.
Roots Studio offers limited edition, unique art prints in partnership with artists in rural India. The designs were beautiful, colorful and full of detail.
Emergolde is owned by a very kind women named Elizabeth! She hand makes all of these lovely and creative magical creatures. This dragon was the sweetest thing!
Always a showstopper. These vintage inspired spun cotton figures and ornaments by Vintage by Crystal are not only amazing and strange in the best way, but every time I see them all together I can’t help but stare at them as if they were the brightest christmas lights on the whole block. The detail in every single one is simply incredible.
I spotted a tin of vintage patches over at the Local Branch’s epic booth and naturally had to rummage through them all!

Coral & Tusk always stunning me with their beautiful and creative embroidered pieces.

First time seeing Raisha shop. Her creations were amazingly strange and just straight up awesome.
Rachel Pfeffer’s beautifully crafted sterling silver and brass casted kitty hair piece was my favorite find all day. I simply loved it. It was so cute and of course kitty anything gets me every time!
AND my purchase of the day was an epic little ‘Stay Cool’ enamel pin from Lucky Horse Press!!! A cute shop with all sorts of fun prints, patches and enamel pins.
After the fair we explored around Chelsea, grabbed some burgers & beers and took some beautiful photos of the city on this beautiful Saturday afternoon.
The perfect day. Love the Renegade Craft fair and love the city.
Thanks for stopping by and checking out my post and shiny new blog!!
Stay tuned for more fun :)
