I can finally cross attending the Renegade Craft Fair off of my list.
I took a day trip to Brooklyn on Saturday, with my friends, Jennifer, Sarah and David. The weather was gorgeous, and I was very excited to see some of the work that I see online, or through blogs.
I had been looking forward to seeing Wren Handmade. I was not disappointed. She had the classiest and most sophisticated stuffed elephants I've ever seen. With my budget, and current sense of practicality, I could only let myself purchase one of her microscopic, adorable crocheted daffodil hair clips. Click here to see the entire collection.
My favorite artist was Lorena Barrezueta. I purchased the salmon color glazed porcelain dish from her above. It is cast from a Japanese cupcake tin. The item I was truly coveting is her 9" pie dish called 'Slice' in the turquoise glaze, from the Gourmet Collection.

If I had remembered, I wanted to buy a wooden sewing needle case and a wooden pin doll from The Small Object. I completely forgot to go back, but I can find these items online. Cute na cute as they say in the Philippines.
(Pictures from The Small Object.)I was very impressed with my friend, Aimee, who created a lovely display for her patterns out of ugly wood from our trip to Home Depot last week.
