Renegade Craft Fair – Los Angeles

Today our family did some shopping at the Renegade Craft Fair in Los Angeles, California.  We drove through a slice of Chinatown on the way and I snapped this fun shot of the lanterns.

Chinatown Los Angeles

This is the group walking to the fair with the downtown L.A. skyline in the distance.  Isn’t it cute how the 3 of them were  holding hands?  Don’t worry.  It didn’t last long.

There were some great handmade crafts there so I thought I’d share a few of my favorites and links to where you can find them.

Renegade Craft Sale - Felt Flower Pins

Sad to say that I don’t have time to track down the artist for these brightly colored felt pins, but love them anyway.  If you like them, take a look at the links to all the artists here and see if you can find it.

Look at these creative journals made from vintage hard cover books with blank pages added.  These were made by Ex Libris Anonymous at http://www.bookjournals.com/.  Just imagine how you could fill these pages!

Renegade Craft Sale Re-purposed Pillows

These pillows just gave me more inspiration for things I could make with my new sewing machine.

These wonderful vintage trailer prints were mounted on wooden blocks to be hung on the wall.   The artist, “Chantalde Felice” said that she visited The Shady Dell,  Bisbee, Arizona’s Vintage Airstream Hotel for her inspiration.  Aren’t they adorable?

Renegade Craft Sale - Cone Trees

I fell in love with the colors and patterns on these precious cone-shaped trees!  You’ll find them at Cathy’s of California.

Renegade Craft Sale King Tshirt

I tried to talk Terry into buying this Tshirt, but he wasn’t in a shopping mood.  Don’t you think it’s kind of fitting for him?  We can always order it or other cool ones later from DKNG Studios.

I thought this was such a wise statement…and excellent inspiration.

Terry also bought me a pair of vintage typewriter key earrings for my Christmas stocking from “The Weekend Store“.  They don’t look exactly like this, but they’re so cute nonetheless.   Be sure to take a look at this website.  There’s lots of interesting vintage inspired items.

Sad news is the sale ended Sunday.  But good news is that you should be able to find all of these artists online for your holiday shopping convenience.

Thanks for coming along on my little cyber shopping trip.  Don’t these handmade treasures inspire you to create something yourself?  Which are your favorites?

    1. Hi Mim,

      Thanks so much for stopping by. And thanks for the sweet compliment about my youthful look. I still feel like I’m in my 30’s although that’s not really mathematically possible if Amy’s my daughter.

      Drop in anytime. I don’t post as often as Amy, but I really look forward to visitors!

      Have a very merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
