Here is our CraftStylish table with Caitlin hard at work signing people up for a free raffle.
Happy Owl Glassworks was selling fused glass pendants featuring a variety of animals. I was happy to find a llama pendant on their website.
The animals of the plushkill forest were definitely the most unique items at the fair. These faux taxidermy animals were an interesting diversion from the more traditional jewelry and paper crafts sold at the fair.
Mr. Poncho created an iPod case which not only protects your music player, but also keeps the cord from becoming tangled. The cases were available in a variety of patterns.
These well crafted wooden rings were beautiful in their simplicity. The eco-friendly wooden bands definitely stood out from the crowd.
At our CraftStylish booth we showed off the new features of the website, and offered our great books as prizes in a raffle. Even if you couldnt make it to the fair, you can still win one of our books in our Summer Sweepstakes.

A few weeks ago I was excited to find out that I would be helping to talk about at the Renegade Craft Fair. I was not disappointed with my first craft fair. The large deserted swimming pool at McCarren Park in Brooklyn was an interesting venue and brought a certain atmosphere to the fair. The community was out in full force despite the wet weather filling the pool with water and blowing winds trying to tug displays from their tents. There were many interesting crafts to be found including felted animals, glass pendants, rings made of wood, and journals created from old books.

Here are some of my favorite vendors at the fair:

Happy Owl Glassworks
Mr. Poncho was offering a tangle-free iPod case
Cherry Box Studios presented stuffed animals in The Plushkill Forest
Cathy of California
Simply Wood Rings
Danmade! Stoneware
Lauren Alane's Felt Birds

Ex Libris Anonymous creates journals from old books
Rachel F.
was selling her leather works

It's funny how we were at the same fair but different things caught our attention. How could I have missed those "taxidermied" lovelies from the plushkill forest? Now I want one so bad! It would look perfect over the fireplace I don't have in the den I don't have!
