This weekend : Renegade Craft Fair – Austin

Renegade Craft Fair is almost here! A show I look forward to because A) it’s super fun, B) I’m successful in it, and C) it’s in Austin, TX, baby!

Renegade Craft Fair Austin

I’ve been to Austin twice now, both for this show (once in the winter, once in the summer), and I just love it. I’ll be traveling down with two other artists who will be participating in the fair, Larissa Loden and Michelle Brusegaard. Larissa and I are sharing a booth at the event, which takes place at the Palmer Events Center. So you can find us together. And Michelle is just right across the aisle from us. A crafter’s dream—to participate in a fun show and be near fun pals.
