Renegade Craft Fair Holiday Market – Brooklyn – November 17 + 18

We are so excited to be taking part in the first-ever Renegade Craft Fair Holiday Market in Brooklyn which will take place on November 17 + 18, 2012 from 11am-6pm each day at the East River State Park (aka the Williamsburg Waterfront)! We’ll be hitting everyone’s favorite borough after our 10 day east coast road trip and we will be joined by a slew of wonderful crafters, hands-on workshops, food, music, and more! You can see the full line-up or crafters here!

We will have our usual goods and wares with us, plus some brand new prints you haven’t seen before!, so make sure to stop by. We will be in booth #68 over near the DJ and the photo booth!

You can expect a vibrant + festive atmosphere in our crafty tents, and as always, we’ve got a few extra tricks up our sleeves to make for a great handmade holiday market! If you’re feeling crafty yourself, you can paint your own glass votive holder with the paint gurus at Pébéo’s make-and-take workshop. And you can make all of your handmade holiday purchases even fancier at Renegade’s own DIY Gift Wrap Station with stamp kits by Yellow Owl Workshop! The people behind The Chalkboard Tee will be providing a chalkboard installation so the attendees can show off their artistic talent. Some of Brooklyn’s best DJs will be spinning jams all weekend to keep you in the shopping and crafting mood, while the free-to-use photobooth from the Magnolia Photobooth Co. will keep you smiling all weekend.
Tasty treats will abound at the fair, with savory food from Urban Rustic and La Crêpe C’est Si Bonand sweet snacks from Vegan Treats. You can warm up and get your caffeine fix with delicious coffee from the Mud Truck.
