Are you excited for the Renegade Craft Fair? Once the cold weather sweeps in, Gotham transforms into a shopping bonanza where you can find great holiday markets chock-full of unique goods and delicious grub. New Yorkers should get psyched for the mother lode of craft fairs—Renegade Craft Fair—as it enters Brooklyn in Decebmer. Only the most serious artists, tchotchke-making fiends and creative types are invited to gather and display their hand-made or bespoke goods at the Brooklyn Expo Center this season. And this bazaar is undoubtedly one of the most exciting NYC events in December, not to mention the best place to get your hands on the kitschiest and downright coolest garb, artwork and accessories just in time for the holidays. (It’s truly a “best in show” ordeal.) Check out loot from more than 200 vendors as well as live entertainment from DJs, DIY opportunities and perhaps some delicious summer drinks at this free and highly-anticipated event.
