Our Austin Fair last month was by far our favorite event in that city to date! The new venue, the delicious food, the talented makers, and the Texas energy ya’ll brought made the weekend so much fun! If you want to relive the good times, or if you weren’t able to make it this time around, take a look at our Austin album on Flickr!
Along that same vein, we were thrilled to see the first 2015 fair short film created by our awesome sponsor, ZIIBRA. The team at ZIIBRA will be capturing all of our flagship fairs this year and it was such a delight to see Austin in moving images.
Wow, oh, wow, Austin! What an amazing weekend we spent together! Despite the full spectrum of weather, it was great seeing old friends, meeting new faces, and loving all the handmade wares and good vibes our Makers brought to the Austin Fair this year! Over 140 extraordinarily talented independent Makers showcased their work at Fair Market to Austinites, Texans and travelers from beyond. We got to start our day with delicious iced horchata coffee from Sister Coffee, sample addictive and tasty free cookies from Coterie Market! We couldn’t resist the range of one-of-a-kind handmade products on display from ceramics and wooden furniture to delightful hand-dyed and stitched clothing. We topped each day off with Marco’s Tacos, a handsome hot dog from Frank, and of course, some refreshing cocktails. Did anyone else find it impossible to have just one prickly pear margarita?

We saw a lot of smiles in the open air Magnolia Photo Booth! Fun fact: Those hand painted animal props featured some of the RCF Staff’s very own pets! You can view your photo booth strips from Saturday and Sunday right here.
One of our favorite post-fair activities is combing through the #RenegadeAustin collection of photos. We loved witnessing Makers and shoppers alike, posting about their favorite products, booths and experiences! Here’s some of our favorite moments below:
