Success at the Renegade Craft Fair!!


The Renegade Craft Fair at Fort Mason this weekend was a huge success!! Although slightly overwhelming, people get aggressive at these things, Alison and I were able to scope out and visit some great booths! Hope you enjoy the photos and visit the websites of the great talent we had the opportunity of experiencing!


Entrance to Festival Pavilion 



So creative, this was just one of the many mobiles from 



I loved these wonderful ceramic containers and 
salt and pepper bowls, the colors were so vibrant!




Posted about these in the first installment of the Craft Fair, and couldn't believe how gorgeous her pieces were in person. The colors drew Alison and I in from far away! I loved every single item! How gorgeous are the light pink and turquoise? And her structural spiraled bowls are beautiful!



That is the talented artist on the right!




Jessica had some really fun fun fun slip cast ceramic pieces. Her wobble bowls really caught our eyes, as Jessica would keep tapping the bowls, causing them to wobble, just as they are called. She also makes other pieces, such as the Memory Bank, which you could put any sort of momento into, not just your typical piggy bank. Alison picked up a Small white Wobble bowl. 






Jason Munn makes these awesome posters for Independent Music Artists. As a local artist to the bay area, a lot of his posters reflect concerts that happen (ed) right here in the area. I picked up the second poster, the light pink one. Not sure where it's going to go yet, but once I find a new apartment, it will find a home right away!

We are loving all the fun things you found. The mystic mobiles are so different what a great idea. The colors and shapes to Sara Paloma pottery is so pretty. We can not wait to see your new apartment and the neat new poster in it. Thanks again for sharing.

What great things, I would have gone nuts in there with all that. So did you end up getting anything?

Thanks all for the great comments! It's so nice logging on and seeing you have a new comment from this person...

LindsB - yes we got some goodies! I got the pink poster, which is the last picture in the post and I am going to put it in a silver frame in my new place (place yet to be found!) and Alison got some really great jewelry which she is going to guest post on later this week so stay tuned everyone!

Wowzers, that Sarah Paloma pottery is to die for! I really like that each piece varies in color just a touch.
