this year’s renegade craft fair was my first as a vendor as well as renegade’s first fair of the season <LA-SF-CHI to follow>.  mama nature was particularly kind because it was torrential friday + sunday evenings – yet somehow, both saturday and sunday were absolutely beautiful! so much so that i managed to burn the backs of my knees to a crisp, i swear ma – i wore 45spf

situated around the track, it was amusing watching artists + shoppers bolt through the soccer field to grab a bite or use the temporary bathrooms – with running water and soap!

people really enjoyed spelling out their names as well as making bff matchy necklaces.
this lovely lady brought her friend back on Day 2 and shows off the layered look quite well

caught in action!  as is pretty apparent, i was manning p*Charming whilst amazing friends looked over prismPOP.  in case you were lost / overwhelmed (300 vendors this year) p*Charming shared a booth with ikyoto + Look Closely Press; prismPOP with Caja Jewelry all of whom i met through my proud participation in the etsy street team: the {NewNew}; which I must tell you is an incredibly nurturing group of artisans + crafters.  i had fantastic neighbors!

all in all, renegade was a beautiful outdoor weekend full of delicious food (thanks in large part to a pretzel croissant from my old neighborhood bakery pal) super company & fun.  i am so looking forward to heading to cali next month to do it again in SF and LA!  please do introduce yourself as i am an easterner + would love some company.

also, if you are not already on the mailing lists(pP & p*C), sign up for discounts!
