The 1st ever Renegade Craft Fair in Austin was last weekend and we had a grand ole time!! We had an incredible turnout, with attendees traveling from all over to check out the handmade wares of over 250 marvelous indie-craft talents!!
Big thanks to Etsy, StitchLab, The Austin Craft Mafia, Public School and The WonderCraft (who had their 30-foot long airstream trailer at the event!) for coordinating such wonderful workshops!! We also must thank KVRX for coming out and spinning the best indie-jams all weekend long, Minor Mishap Marching Band for blowing the roof off the Palmer Events Center, and Shotgun Party for playing two terrific sets each day – dang, Jenny has an amazing voice!
The crowds went crazy for our free issues of Juxtapoz Magazine + Uppercase Journal, and thousands signed up for our free raffles provided by Uppercase Gallery, Jenny Hart’s Sublime Stitching, Beautiful/Decay and BurdaStyle!
We’ve posted a whole slew of photos from the event to FLICKR – check them out by clicking here! And, don’t forget that you can still shop RCF Austin online by visiting our Artist Page!!
