I ventured out of Nordstrom (where I have been shopping the Anniversary Sale for the past 3 weeks!) to visit the Renegade Craft Fair hosted in Seattle this weekend. I was overwhelmed with the beautiful array of artisan wares including handmade home goods, jewelry, apparel, and accessories. And, I love meeting the artists who crafted the beautiful piece (or pieces) that you take home with you. Their stories, craft, and vision are always so inspiring.
Below I’m sharing a few of my favorite finds. If you happen to be in the Pacific Northwest, Renegade’s final summer stop on the west coast is this weekend in Portland, Oregon. I’m heading down to visit with friends in the Rose City…I’m hoping to convince them to do a bit more shopping as well. Maybe I’ll see you there!
To say that I am obsessed with this dress is an understatement. In fact, I’ve already washed it in preparation for wear this weekend. Made of this incredible rayon/nylon blend that does not wrinkle, and it floats from your body in such a flattering silhouette – this is a piece I know I will be wear for many summers to come! Make It Good also has a brick and mortar store in Portland called North of West – I’ll definitely be checking this one out.
All of Christine Fail’s designs are unique and beautifully made. I love her mix of gold, rose gold, and silver metals. In particular, the abstract shape of these “basket hoop” earrings caught my eye – they’re different yet simple enough to wear everyday.
I can get behind both the message and the styling of El Sage’s collection of hats, tees, and stickers. All inspired by the PNW, the block print art is hand screened on to awesome trucker hats and soft tees (for adults and kids alike). You can also find Phoebe and Jonathan’s designs at Queen Anne Frame, if you’re local to Seattle.
I may have gone home with both the leather choker and leather bolo…but really, how could you choose? This shop also has an eclectic sampling of hand-dyed leggings, colorful sunglasses, and printed dresses in addition to jewelry. Definitely a must-see to up your accessories game!
I can’t get enough of these geometric wall sconces, mobiles, and tabletop decorations, that are perfect for housing air plants or simply adding some spunk to a coffee table display (which is where you will find mine). Handmade by Sam, Samantha Leung, these modern pieces add interest to any interior decor or collection. You can also find Handmade Sam Made at Queen Anne Frame.
Hope you all enjoy a wonderful, sunny summer weekend. It’s hot, hot, hot here in Seattle. Thanks for reading! ~Jenn
