Renegade Craft Fair: Brooklyn

I managed to drag the Husband and the Kid to the Renegade Craft Fair in Brooklyn this weekend. They're both super into crafts (uh, no, not really). Anyway, I was really impressed with the artists. Some of my favorites: HERO Design of Buffalo (who made the brilliant Brooklyn poster above), DOLL by Mimi Kirchner of Boston (creator of the awesome "Tattoo girl" pictured above ), Black Spot Books (amazing handmade leather-bound books, one that caught my eye contained a very small, very old photo embedded in the cover) and Forestbound a bag-maker who uses found and salvaged materials. The Husband's two favorites: Campfire Goods Inc. and Mean Cards. Campfire Goods designs and hand prints t-shirts with funny stuff about your city or state. Mean Cards are just hilarious. Check them out!
