Renegade Craft Fair Holiday Market

As testament to the success of the DIY movement, I've been to 4 indie craft fairs within the past month without even trying. When I visited the Renegade Craft Fair late Saturday afternoon, it was bustling, & I was told that it was even more crowded earlier in the day. The Concourse Exhibition Center was jammed, & there was a feeling of abundance.

Up-cycling is the name of the game here, though there was something suspect about this drum cymbal turned into a hanging ornament by Chime Jewelry.

I'd want this glow-in-the-dark bigfoot t-shirt from Maiden Voyage Clothing Co. on my Christmas list.

Heidi Gibson's custom miniature paintings were too precious for words.

The cuteness quotient of both vendors & shoppers was near lethal. Grace Hawthorne of Paper Punk did a good job pulling me in by letting me fold one of the components from her paper toy kits. I bought a granola bar from the cheery folks at Awesome Bar but ended up giving it to a friend who skipped his dinner. He claimed it was indeed awesome.
