So go darn it!! RCF is in McCarren Park (but not in the pool this year) in lovely Brooklyn, NY.
Sadly, I won’t be attending or vending this year due to other travel plans in June. And I’m so bummed because this year’s Renegade Craft Fair is the biggest and best looking offering of amazing handmade crafts, art to date. The offering of incredible work from the DIY and Handmade culture is just fantastic, and the Renegade Craft Fairs are the premiere shows loaded with international talent.
Seriously. I feel like a ghost and watching all of my crafty, arty friends are hanging out together. BooooOOOOoooo :rattleschanins:
So, since I can’t go, you go for me! Say hello to my friends below and spread the word. See you next year Brooklyn!
Some of my favorite artists and crafters whom you should check out & totally say HI! to for me:
Berkely Illustration - amazing animal and other illustrations.
Bossa Nova Baby - super fun hand screenprinted skirts, sewn embellishment and retro-cool accessories. (And one of the funniest people I know.)
Giant Dwarf - beautiful embellishments for your head, hair and heart.
Hero Design Studio - these guys are my stone cold BFFs. Amazing every which way, including loose.
Isle of Printing – quite possibly the best that there is out there. Ever.

Beans & Screens, screenprinted art print Coffee Show 2009 Important Details:
*Mugshots Coffehouse in Philadelphia is a part of the Independents Coffee Cooperative, both working collectively to raise $16,000 for the Peruvian farmers who grow the coffee sold as their house coffee (Independents Peruvian Select). The farmers are undertaking an ambitious project to build a solar powered drying facility (to dry the beans after they are harvested). This will allow for the farmers to improve both the quality and quantity of the coffee they grow, by protecting it from the frequent rains in the region. 100% of the profits made through the show at Mugshots will go to Cooperativa San Fernando, a farmer-owned organic coffee cooperative located high in the Andes Mountains near Cusco, Peru.

Hey guess what! If you haven’t seen me at a craft show, you very likely haven’t seen my t-shirts for sale. Since most of my tshirt designs are printed in small runs, I usually only take them with me for shows rather than always having them available online. But now, with the craft and poster carny-travel season coming to a close, I put up some t-shirts in my Etsy store.
Available in sought after Women’s tee styles by Hyp brand, (an amazingly soft and comfy women’s tee that puts the other to shame) as well as traditional Mens/Unisex cut styles too. Take your pick! And, now that it’s chilly time, hoodies are in the works too. Got a suggestion or a design that you would love to see on a hoodie? Drop me line.
