The Renegade Craft Fair season begins this weekend in Austin! Join us 11am to 7pm at Palmer Events Center, 900 Barton Springs Road. The gang could not be more excited to shop the curated selection of makers and sip cocktails while lounging in specially designed Loot Vintage seating areas. In between shopping and sipping, play life-sized games (including a giant Lite-Brite) created by MAKEatx while enjoying tunes by Waterloo Records. New to the mix this year is an intimate vintage pop-up featuring men’s and women’s clothing, accessories, and home goods from a variety of eras.
Check out the Austin makers and plan your weekend of shopping. If you want to scope out the lay of the land before heading to RCF Austin, make sure to check out the handy dandy map we’ve put together. You can even download the map to your mobile device for easy shopping.
Doors open at 11am, no early bird shopping.
ATMs available on-site, but many vendors offer Square mobile pay, too.
Free to attend!
Street parking and plentiful $7 parking in the Palmer Events Center lot.

Sometimes, when you’re curating a fair, certain puzzle pieces fall into place in such an easy, natural, “oh-my-gosh-best-booth-neighbors-ever” kind of way, you just have to smile. Such was the case with Renegade Austin and some of the first booths you’ll see as you walk through the door. The one-two-three punch of AMiRA Jewelry, Little Things Studio, and Perfect Hair Ties is a colorful craft explosion, and we can’t wait to see what these amazingly talented makers will bring to the fair. (PS: Get a complete lay of the land with the official Renegade Austin map.)

Can’t help but think we’ll be picking up some of these Perfect Hair Ties for our unruly locks
On this grey & rainy Chicago day, we’re enjoying getting lost in the porcelain world of gdg studios. This first-time Renegade Brooklyn maker creates dreamy pieces that evoke nature, geometry, and stillness all at once. Seriously, don’t you want a cup of tea from that faceted mug right now?
With two fairs cookin’ right now (Austin + Brooklyn), it seems like every time we turn around, we see new examples of the amazing work our makers are makin’. Here’s a sampling of what’s to be found at Renegade Brooklyn.
