Any crafter worth her weight in cashmere yarn knows that Renegade Craft Fair is the fair all other fairs aspire to. Held in urban epicenters such as Brooklyn, Chicago, Austin and of course, Los Angeles, Renegade is a traveling marketplace showcasing work from hundreds of the country’s best contemporary indie craft artists. Past fairs have included booths by 1337Motif (wood cutting boards and coasters), Threadriot (leggings and bags), and Le Petit Elefant (kids’ toys). Aside from crafts, Renegade offers all sorts of homemade DIY fun: past LA Renegades have featured a woodworking bus with classes and demos, free photo booths and tons of tasty food trucks. Renegade’s summer fairs are its main events. Its supplemental holiday fairs in wintertime help you check everyone off your gift list—including yourself.
