Renegade Craft Fair Austin 2010

Last Saturday, I went to Renegade Craft Fair in Austin. In a word Renegade Craft Fair was amazing! There were so many talented artistans/crafters there.
This is what greeted us upon our arrival.

Of course we had to stop by the Etsy booth where they were giving away free pins, and a demo on how to make a mini bunting.
It now proudly hangs above my barn owl drawing in my room.

The directions were surprisingly easy, and I loved this little button fabric that was covering their tables.
Now on to the loot!! :)
My very own mustache pin!!!!!
My mom surprised all of us as we were leaving with a little gift, she gave me this mustache pin made by Isette. I've been wearing it all week. Can you blame me?

I also got several items from the seller Clay Wood & Cotton. The first was this little bookmark below that I have been also using all week. I was totally smitten with everything in this booth, and would have bought more if I could...

I got the squirrel print there as well, along with the yarn.
The toast poster came from The Poster List's booth.
I have been reading this book, Free Range Knitter, by Stephanie Pearl Mcphee and of course using my A Good Yarn bookmark. :)
This book is so wonderful and I have been reading every chance that I can. It is so funny and witty, yet insightful. I love it! I definitely recommend it. I even read some of it to my sister, Kaitlyn (a non-knitter), and we both were laughing so hard we cried!
Here is the yarn made by Jill Draper Makes Stuff I got in the Clay Wood Cotton booth, and I have been thinking of making Saroyan with it.... Not sure yet, but since I have to finish other projects first it doesn't matter yet.

Next year I definitely plan on being in Renegade. It was a wonderful day, and after wanting to go after so many years, it was a dream come true.
XOXO, Callie
