Last month, Emily and I went to the famous Renegade Craft Fair in San Francisco to see the latest in handmade fashion, accessories, homewares and more. Held in a beautiful venue right by the bay, and populated by over 300 indie crafters, it was an amazing and inspiring experience. We shopped for ourselves (who could resist?) but also found some great new designers to showcase right here on ModCloth (coming soon!).

I really love craft fairs because they have it all. Anything you could ever want, from a pretty but practical tablecloth to a totally impractical but AWESOME rainbow felt beard. We scoured the entire fair, stopping at each and every booth, to bring you our favorite finds. I know, it’s a hard job, but someone’s got to do it. Check these artists out!

  • Incredible roll-on perfume from mi SPA (my favorite is Ume!)
  • Old school video game inspired jewelry from Pixel Party

Along with the cute crafts, we also spotted some cute attendees!

We adored these lovely ladies’ style. In fact, Tomoko, who’s wearing a vintage dress on the right, is also a designer and boutique owner! If you’re ever in Berkely, CA, pay her a visit.

    Thank you so much for these links! And speaking of links, I must have those Link earrings from Pixel Party! They will be mine, oh yes, they will be mine.

    I just purchased the skeleton Key necklace from oh, hello friend and I’m stoked they only had 2 left and its beautiful. Thanks for posting this. Exploring some of the work was fun, if only I could have gone.
