This weekend marked the first annual Renegade Craft Fair in San Francisco. I opted out of applying for this show as it wasn't great timing for a huge event for Vivi Dot, but I was very excited to attend as a shopper!
I did my homework beforehand and checked out all of vendor's websites. I like seeing how people portray themselves online and how it then contrasts with their presence at an event like this. It looked like there would be a decent number of vendors from out of town which meant a lot of great new things I haven't seen before.
One stop I knew I would have to make was at the Post Card Machine. Check out this YouTube video of the 'machine' in action and you'll see why.
As far as my purchases go, I am very proud to say that I avoided my usual temptation for clothing and jewelry and spent my money on art to decorate my walls instead!
I came home with this awesome one of kind piece from Michelle Caplan. I hung it at the top of the stairs and seem to like it even more each time I see it.
I'm also expecting this 'sprout-about wheel stick' in the mail within 2-3 weeks from Sprout Studio. I can't wait to get this hung up in my living room!

We timed it just right to see/hear the crazy performance by Mucca Pazza as well. They're not your average marching band, in all the best ways possible.
