Renegade Craft Fair


The Renegade Craft Fair came to SF July 19th and 20th and I went to check out local crafts. (I know, I know, it’s not an urban farm, but the HANDMADE crafts made by talented mostly LOCAL artists, many using SUSTAINABLE material and the stuff was AWESOME.) And some was even farm inspired… Check out the edited version of some of the really great stuff I saw below. If you missed the fair and are interested in buying just contact the artists via their websites…

(Above, L-R) Beautiful, texture-y yarn Necklaces by SF artist Rachel Robertson

I wanted to buy all of the bright, bold hand-printed vegetable screen prints by SF artist Jen Kindell

Art Toys by Boston based Mimi Kirchner Her animals and tattooed men reminded me of Wes Anderson characters.

Mountain pillows from Olympia WA

Practical, beautiful and interesting cherry wood utensils from Jonathan Simons
