Renegade Craft Los Angeles

renegade craft fair los angeles

This past Saturday we went to the Renegade Craft Fair for the first time. I’ve only ever heard good things about this fair and was not at all disappointed. It was held in Los Angeles State Historic Park, and despite being rather warm out, it was nice to spend a summer day outside enjoying such great craft work.  It was so inspiring to see all the creative things people are making. Here is just a small fraction of the stuff we saw.

I loved these clocks from Black Forest Clockwork.

These ceramic bowls and jars from Paulova Ceramics were just beautiful. I couldn’t decide which ones I wanted though.

There were lots of lovely terrariums. These hanging ones were from Planted, but there were also some gorgeous ones from Terri Planty with fun little figures in them.

These cross stitches from Kattuna were just too cute.

We saw this screaming bunny when we came in, and later saw a girl walking around with it. Glad he found a home, since he looks pretty grumpy.

If you are ever thinking of getting me a plant, may I recommend one of these? I kill plants like it’s going out of style. These are handmade by Shannon Gerard.

Unicorn coat hook? Amazing. Made by Architecture Jones. They also had some lovely prints and knobs.

I have always admired these paintings by Mincing Mockingbird. I bough an owl print to add to the owl art wall I’m working on.

I also bought an adorable necklace from Made by L’Moore, here modelling one of her creations.

So I possibly spent more than I should have overall but it feels good to support handmade artists (and get original stuff). I’m so glad to be living in a time where there is a resurgence of handmade things and people really value crafted goods. I’m thankful for places that promote crafting with lessons and community as well as these fairs that let so many people make a living from their work.

Afterward we stopped for some beers downtown. Shawn had a full liter of beer. Oh boy.

Me? I had a ginger beer.


Perfect way to spend a Saturday.

    I wish we had a handmade craft fair like that here in Tucson. Bi-annually we have a street art festival which is kind of similar, but on a larger scale. Looks like a great way to spend some money, though!

    That ginger beer looks incredibly refreshing!

    I love Mincing Mockingbird, I have a couple of his awesome magnets. Also, that wolf clock is practically begging to live on my wall.
