As we wrap up the 2012 season, we are all kinds of thankful for such a cozy + wonderful season of Holiday Markets. From Brooklyn to San Francisco and all points in between, we were thrilled by the talented makers, enthusiastic crowds, and all-around great energy of each fair.
THANK YOU to each and every one of you who made 2012 such an awesome year.
We’ve put a few of our favorite snaps from the fair in the collage above, please add to our #renegadecraftfair pool via Instagram if you’d like – we love to see your perspective!

We can’t wait to catch up with you all in 2013, but in the meantime, here’s to days that are merry + bright.
Happiest holidays from The Renegade Gang!
We kicked off the West Coast leg of our 2012 RCF holiday tour with the 3rd Annual Renegade Craft Fair Holiday Market in Los Angeles on December 8 + 9, 2012 at the Los Angeles State Historic Park! Hundreds of today’s best indie crafters and thousands of shoppers (a record-breaking number of ‘em!) joined us for hands-on workshops, music, food trucks, booze + oh so much more.
We were blown away by the talent of a curated collection of some of today’s best + brightest indie makers from Los Angeles and beyond. You can see the line-up here! Check out the official map of the fair here!
The whole affair really felt like a cozy craft village, and walking through all the booths was an inspirational and festive time. Visitors made great use of Renegade’s own DIY Gift Wrap Station and made their handmade gifts even fancier with stamps by Yellow Owl Workshop! LA’s four-legged friends got a boost at the Second Acts Animal Rescue Booth.
And we can’t forget the food! Some of LA’s best food trucks were serving tasty bites all weekend, including Greasy Wiener, Brasil Kiss, Ludo Truck, Green Truck, Palazzolo Truck, and India Jones Chow Truck. Libations were available for purchase at our bar. Add a free-to-use photobooth by Magnolia Photobooth Co. (check out Saturday’s snaps here and Sunday’s here!) and some sweet shopping jams by KXLU, and it was a great way to spend a weekend!
T H A N K Y O U, LOS ANGELES!
Special thanks to our Sponsors + Friends!
We are basically Instagram-obsessed (do you follow us? We’re @RenegadeCraft).

Here’s a little sneak peek at what some of our talented makers have waiting for you. (And don’t forget to add #renegadecraftfair to your RCF-related posts!)
