This morning, I took a trip up to Austin to check out the 1st Annual Renegade Craft Fair. Upon arrival, I thought I had died and gone to Heaven. For over three hours, I wandered up and down the aisles of booths and was continually taken aback by the wonderful items for sale…I may have gone a bit overboard! It was so refreshing to chat with some Etsy sellers and artists, many of whom traveled all the way from Southern California!
Plus, I amassed a pretty cool collection of business cards. The men from Campfire had some really interesting t-shirts that I just know my husband would love, particularly this one. Adam, of The Poster List, was wonderful to talk with, and Carla, of Crown Bindery, epitomized southern charm, and she has a dachshund named Peanut!
This little book is a preview of the work of Jay B Sauceda and Will Bryant of Public School, a design studio in Austin. While it’s depressing that some of these creative guys are younger than me, it was so great to meet Will and Cody today, and the more I think about it, I probably should have gotten their autographs because I have a feeling they’re going to be very famous.
I can’t wait until next year, maybe I’ll sack up and buy a booth space! (Thank you, Carla, for providing some motivation!)
